Social Emotional Wellness at Crown Pointe Academy

Welcome to SEW Saturday!

Every Saturday, the social emotional wellness (SEW) committee sends out ideas that we feel can help our community build resilience and stay connected to one another.

We are using this SEW Saturday to highlight two wonderful challenges happening at CPA! One challenge is for our CPA community and focuses on our physical health and the other challenge is focused on helping others with their safety needs and finding shelter.

Check out our weekly video here: https://youtu.be/sJ1AUunosvs

Kindness Club Keep the Cold Out

This fall, the Kindness Club is on a mission to raise $2000 to help provide shelter that could literally save a life on a below freezing night here in Colorado! We are asking you to join Kindness Club’s Keep the Cold Out by collecting monetary donations of any size from every grade so that we can provide vouchers for people who need shelter this winter.

The organization One by One Helping Arvada Homeless and Grace Church of Arvada have partnered with the Severe Weather Shelter Network (SWSN) to provide shelter on severe weather nights to people experiencing homelessness.

SWSN has made arrangements with several area hotels to accept vouchers from pre-screened individuals through participating homeless outreach organizations like One By One and others.

The County allocated funds to pay for these vouchers but the need from the ever-growing homeless population in the area has depleted the funds before the 2019 season was even over.  One by One and Grace agreed to help meet the need that rose above the county budget and Kindness Club would like to raise money to help them reach their goals.

The average hotel voucher for a single night is approximately $70.   With our goal of raising $2000 we can help One by One and Grace Church pay for 28 more vouchers to provide shelter that could save lives!  

When we reach our goal EVERY student will receive a TREAT!!

Spread the word! Anyone can donate. 

Will you please help Kindness Club Keep the Cold Out?

Dates:  October 12th – November 13th

Where & How to donate:

You can donate by bringing in cash or a check made out to Crown Pointe Academy with Kindness Club in the memo line and give it to your teacher or to the front office staff.

You can also pay online with a credit card for a small fee.  Go to the CPA home page and click on the PARENTS tab and then go to registration fees and credit card payment.  From there you’ll see an option under ‘OTHER”.  Choose ‘other’ and put in the amount that you wish to donate to Kindness Club.
