Please read the attached document to learn what a Tax Credit donation is, how Cerritos uses the funds, why Cerritos benefits from donations turned in now instead of waiting until tax time, how Cerritos can increase the number of tax credit donations we collect each year, when you should donate and when to claim it on your taxes, and the process to donate!
In 2012, Cerritos was recognized as the 27th school, worldwide, with the honor of being a Leader in Me Lighthouse School. Our students discover and practice a set of leadership and life skills from Stephen Covey's book "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People". In our school, EVERY child possesses unique strengths and has the ability to be a leader!
Three student leaders at Cerritos are seeing their community service project come full circle as the backpacks that were donated were delivered to a school in Texas. Cerritos would like to thank Pulice Construction and the Horn family from Ahwatukee for their assistance in delivery of the backpacks. Check out some photos of the project start to finish!
We have a great news to share! Please help us congratulate our 1st grade teacher, Ms. Kristie Makela, for receiving an EMMY for her work with PBS Kids. Ms. Makela was nominated for her work writing and hosting the "Miss K" segments on the Arizona PBS Kids Channel.
Our Makerspace room is looking for some very specific donations. We appreciate all the items donated so far, but at this point we would prefer to only collect items from the following lists of NEEDS and BIG DREAM WANTS. The Wants are items that we hope to use during a lunchtime Makerspace club!
