.Hello from the Executive Director.
Those humble, quiet, behind-the-scenes people
are the reason anything ever gets done.
Hello Bronco Families!
I would like to acknowledge the hard work of the Coburg Community Charter School PCS group and to extend our sincere thanks for all that you do! Last week, the staff was treated like royalty with treats, lunches, special cards, and words of appreciation. PCS volunteers decorated the staff room and made sure that every staff member felt the love. This happened while the same volunteers were also busy preparing for the PCS Annual Auction. We are grateful for all of the work going on behind the scenes to support our staff and students through the tireless efforts of this group and our amazing volunteers! Thank you! Thank you!
As most of you know, charter schools receive significantly less funding than traditional public schools. Without the help and support of our tireless volunteers, generous donors, and the willingness of our dedicated staff to work for salaries less than traditional schools offer, Coburg Community Charter School could not exist. It is a labor of love all the way around. We recognize more than ever the value of every individual on this team whether behind the scenes or in the building. The collaborative efforts of parents, staff, and students keep our momentum going. This sense of community which is the focus of our mission and vision allows CCCS to thrive.
The Annual CCCS Auction this Saturday provides a venue for us to support this amazing school. It also provides the opportunity for us to gather in celebration of the accomplishments that began with a small group of visionaries and grew into what it is today. Margaret Mead nailed it with these words, “Never underestimate the power of a small group of committed people to change the world. In fact, it is the only thing that ever has.” It is an honor to be part of this small group of committed people.
We look forward to seeing many of you at the auction. If you are unable to attend, we hope to see you at an event or two before the school year ends!

Thank you to our volunteers of the past week, Heather, Rose, Donna, Stacey, Liz, Kelsey, Amanda, Elaine, Marilee, Karen, Katelyn, Jen & Melissa! You are SO appreciated!
We are in need of volunteers to help at our upcoming Encanto music performance on May 24! We need help in the days leading up to the event to set up (and shine up) the chairs and risers, the day of we'll need help with set up and tear down. If you can help out, please let us know asap by emailing Katie at firstname.lastname@example.org
We are excited to announce a new program we’re rolling out with help from our friends over at the local Coburg Food Pantry! Starting May 13, each Friday we will put together a bag of food for your student to take home for your family. If your family could benefit from a little extra food over the weekend we would LOVE to help!
You don’t need to qualify for any certain thing to take a bag of food home…if it’s helpful for your family we want you to take one! If you know you want one, please email us back to let us know how many people you have at home so we can stock your bag appropriately. It’s also ok to just show up and grab one, but to make sure we have enough it's best to reserve yours.
The first bags will be given out Friday, May 13. They will be placed by the front doors with a label for family size.
We are so thankful the Coburg Food Pantry is helping us with this project! You can also check the info below to see if your family qualifies for the pantry (totally different from the bags that will be given out on Fridays.)
Family Size Monthly/Annual
For each additional member, add $1180 per month or $14160 per year. For more information on the Coburg Food Pantry, call Peggy Wells at 541-345-6645 or Patty Yarr at 831-345-3866. The pantry is open every 2nd and 4th Monday of the month, 2-4pm.
