CRE receives funds for Habitat

Groove Auto in Centennial announced that from every vehicle sold, a portion of the revenue is given back to Denver-area schools. From the many applications, an impressive number of schools were selected to receive checks ranging from $1,000 to $3,500. Congrats to the DCSD recipients: Cherry Valley Elementary, Arrowwood Elementary, DCS Montessori Charter School, Acres Green Elementary SchoolBear Canyon Elementary SchoolCastle Rock Elementary SchoolSagewood Middle SchoolHOPE Online Learning Academy Co-Op, and Frontier Valley Elementary!

CRE's Habitat Specialist, Catherine Mackin, was on hand at the awards ceremony to receive the funds. The $3,500 award will be used in our habitat to create more spaces for students to utilize as well as building additonal plant structures.

The habitat is a popular place for our students to have class outside of the classroom, study and observe plants and wildlife, and provides a tranquil place for quiet writing and reflection. 

Thank you, Groove Auto, for your generosity!

When it comes to mental health services, communities traditionally focus on supporting kids as needs arise. This work is crucial for the safety of our students. Equally important, though, is prevention-based programming that can help, early on, prevent the social-emotional challenges our kids may be experiencing from escalating.
