Our sweet school is very lucky to have a group of fabulous moms leading our Community Committee. This group plans various social events and helps with many of our Cimarron events in order to foster the communal spirit among our families. The past few months they have coordinated a back to school party, several Mom’s Nights Out, the Fall Cimarron Review, park play dates, Valentine’s parties, and even a field trip to Parkhurst. Such fun times! A few events they are helping with this semester include a Grandparent’s Day, Teacher Appreciation Day, and more!

The committee has set up a fund to use for all school-wide events such as those listed above.

  • It is suggested that each family contribute $30 towards the fund.
  • If that amount is a hardship, they suggest a family contribution of $2 towards Grandparent’s Day supplies.

To contribute, please PayPal using the Cimarron PayPal email (treasurer@cimarronlivingeducation.com). Be sure to select “Friends & Family” and type “Community Committee” in the memo line.

We have a school sponsored field trip to see some special Mozart musicians on May 17th. We have been given permission to use the Westwood bus, but we need a CDL licensed driver! Do you have one or know someone who has one? Please reach out to Minda at admin@cimarronlivingeducation.com. Thanks!


April 19th 1:30-3 pm 

Join us for a sweet day of connection and fellowship for grandparents/special friends and their grandchildren throughout the entire school.

Please RSVP here if your child will have special guests join us.

Invitations were sent out last week. If you need an extra copy to print or email, click here.


April 21st 3:30-4:30 pm 

Join us after school as we spend some time cleaning-up the grounds of our school/church.

Snacks provided!

Due to scheduling needs of our host church, Westwood, we are postponing Cimarron Sunday until next Fall. Stay tuned!

One of our wonderful parents, Ursula Bowling, has organized some great field trips on our Enrolled Families Facebook page. These will be a great way to have our kids connect and grow their relationships even more. Plus mom (or dad!) fellowship is always great! Next up is a trip to see the Clydesdales as well as a trip to the Cowboy Museum!

We have had several students needing extra clothes for various reasons the past few weeks. Our stash of extra clothes in the office is getting very small. Please be sure to send an extra set of clothes for your child, no matter to their age. They may keep these in their backpack or cubby.

Our host church, Westwood, has begun an amazing ministry called “Refresh Shower Ministry”. They serve meals to the homeless every Wednesday evening and, once the weather cooperates, will begin a mobile shower ministry. We would love for Cimarron to join in this ministry and help provide food stuffs for the Wednesday meals. Below you will find an Amazon link for their current needs. I will keep a box in the office for any donations. The Amazon list will be updated as needs change.

  1. Hi- just to clarify a few things.

    We will not be having Cimarron Review on May 15th?

    I won’t be able to participate in the grounds clean up at 3:30 but could spend some time working earlier in the day or on Tuesday the 19th.

    Anna’s grandparents won’t be able to attend on the 19th.

    Will the showers for the homeless be on the Westwood grounds during school hours?

    Thanks for organizing all of this information! Have a good day.

    Sincerely, Robin Kirby

    1. Hi Robin,

      Great questions.
      Correct– We decided it would be best to have the Review in the fall at Christmas time and Grandparent’s Day in the spring. The teachers and I talked last week that next year, we’d like Grandparent’s Day moved to May to bookend it a bit better.

      Westwood’s Refresh ministry never really happens at the church building, other than preparation activities. And the preparation activities happen during their church times, not school times. They go out to the areas in the city that have homeless populations with a mobile shower trailer and the meals they have prepared…it’s pretty neat!

      Thanks! Minda
