March 27, Update for Middle School Only

March 27, 2020 Dear CPA Middle School Parents and Guardians, You just received an email regarding the online learning plan for CPA students, which will begin on Monday.  We wanted to let you know when the middle school teachers will be holding their office hours so that you do not have to check each Google Classroom ahead of time.  Office hours will be as follows: 9:00-10:00: Mrs. Worley, Mrs. Southern, and Mrs. Smeltzer 10:00-11:00: Ms. Davis and Mr. MacGregor 11:00-12:00: Ms. Laxton 12:00-1:00: Mr. Scott 1:00-2:00: Mrs. Roe 2:00-3:00: Mrs. Hughes 3:00-4:00: Mrs. Sandoval Teachers will be online and available to meet with students during those posted times should there be any questions about assignments or class content.  Students do NOT need to utilize office hours everyday, nor do they need to complete classes at assigned times.  But, students should be signing in to Google Classroom everyday.  We expect the course work to take approximately 3-4 hours each day. If you have any questions, please reach out to any middle school teacher for assistance. Thank...

March 27, Update and Online Learning Plan (English and Spanish)

March 27, 2020 Dear Crown Pointe Academy Parents and Guardians, The online learning plan for all CPA students will start on Monday, March 30th using Google Classroom.  Grade level Google Classrooms will be set up as follows: Grades K-4 will have one shared Google Classroom for each grade where all content will be posted.  This includes work from your students homeroom teachers as well as specials teachers. Grade 5 will have to separate classrooms– one for Mrs. Hardy’s class and one for Ms. Wetmore’s class.  Content will also be posted from specials teachers. Middle school teachers will continue to have separate Google Classrooms, so students will have to check each classroom daily. Watch for an email from your student’s teacher on how to access the Google Classroom.  If you have any questions about how to use Google Classroom, please contact your student’s teacher directly. Once you have accessed your student’s Google Classroom(s), here’s how the online learning plan will work: Content will be posted by teachers daily (Monday-Friday) starting Monday, March 30th at 9:00. Your student does NOT have to sign in at any particular time to complete work, but your student should be signing in everyday. Teachers will be holding daily office hours where they will be available to answer questions and interact with students.  This will be done through Google Hangouts and accessed through the Google Classroom. Assignments posted to Google Classroom should be turned in using Google Classroom.  Work returned from students in grades K-2 will not be recorded for grades, but work from students in grades 3-8 will be counted as grades for 4th quarter. Some grades have decided to offer paper packets, assignments, classroom materials, or novels to students.  If your student’s teacher indicates that there are items to pick up, the front vestibule of the school will be open for pick up Monday-Thursday next week from 10:00-2:00.  Stop by whenever it is convenient for you to do so. These items are for PICK UP only.  Nothing should be returned to the school.  To turn in paper assignments, please take a picture of the completed work and email it to your student’s teacher. The CPA staff has been working hard to be ready to roll out this online learning plan on Monday, but we expect that there will be hiccups or bumps in the road.  Please direct all questions to your student’s teacher, and we will work together to resolve any issues.  Thank you for your continued patience and flexibility.  Your support helps to make this unsettling and unpredictable situation more bearable. We wish you continued health and wellness, The CPA Staff   March 27, 2020 (Para espanol desplazar hacia abajo): Estimados...

March 19, 2020 Dear Crown Pointe Academy Parents and Guardians, In order to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus in Colorado, yesterday Governor Jared Polis ordered that all public and private schools in Colorado suspend in-person classes through April 17th. We are currently in the process of formalizing our online learning plan for students while school is not in session.

In the meantime, we are trying to gauge the technology needs of our students and families. Please fill out this short form HERE by this Monday, March 23rd. In some additional updates, state assessments have been cancelled for all students this year. Also, Crown Pointe Academy has extended the deadline to complete registration for the 2020-2021 school year to April 30th.

We’re all still here for you and your children, and we will get through this together. If you have any questions, please let me know.
