Our Principal

August 2017

Dear Cotton Creek Families,

On behalf of all Cotton Creek staff I want to welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year!   

I wish to thank the citizens living within the Adams 12 Five Star School District for passing Bond Proposal 3D on the November 2016 ballot.    The passing of this bond will now benefit every school in our district addressing aging buildings, safety and security, classroom needs, overcrowding, educational opportunities, and technology, at no tax rate increase for our citizens.  For Cotton Creek specifically, the bond will provide for the addition of eight classrooms to our existing building. This will allow us to remove the mobile classroom buildings currently on site.  This, along with other safety and security upgrades, are included in the bond package.  Planning for the new addition began last spring and is well underway.  Current planning projections call for new foundation work to begin the first week of January 2018.  Construction will continue into the summer months with the target of having the work completed by the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year.  

Thank you to parents and guardians of Cotton Creek students for making sure that children arrive to school on time, well-rested and fed, ready to go for the day.  Your support is an integral part in the success of our students as they learn and grow with our staff at Cotton Creek Elementary School.

Thank you for sharing your children with us!
