    Dear Loma and CT Families,


    My Top 3 Moments of the Week...

    1. Seeing all the aliens at CT’s “Area 51” Spirit Day on Friday! What amazing costumes can be created with a little creativity and some tinfoil!
    2. Hearing the Theater in the Mountains cast practice for their fall play, “Annie Jr.” I’ve been humming “It’s a Hard Knock Life” all week!
    3. Feeling proud of all our CT kids who have earned Star Cards each week! Keep up the good work!


    Back by Popular Demand - Clay Roberts Returns!

    It takes a special mountain to raise a child. With this in mind, you are cordially invited to attend a vibrant community conversation regarding what our mountain can do to continue intentionally raising healthy, successful children on October 7, 2019. Clay Roberts, a nationally recognized author, speaker and consultant will be on hand to guide us in this endeavor. He will share researched-based strategies for how our community can become more deliberate in helping our young people succeed. Please see the attached flyer for important details.
