About Us

Rhonda Schenk, President

I am Rhonda Schenk. I have two children, a 2nd grader and a 4th grader. I have been involved in PTSA for the past 3 years and have volunteered as the Box Tops and Book Fair Coordinator. I am so blessed to be an active part of C3's PTSA especially given this crazy chaotic year! My strengths that I bring are community development and the desire to try new ideas. Both of my kids are remote learners which at times has been challenging but PTSA has given all of us a direct connection to C3 that we would not have had otherwise. I am thankful for that and for the true friendships that have developed this past year.

Emily Busick, Secretary

I am Emily Busick. I have three children, one of which is a 4th grader at C3. I have been a parent at C3 for seven years, and was involved in helping to open the school. I chose C3 as the school for our family because of the commitment to community and teaching to the child. I have worked as a volunteer in many different aspects within the school in the past. I decided that it was time to put my efforts into building the community into something I can be proud of, a legacy to leave behind me when my last child moves on in a couple of years. To do that I joined the C3 PTSA as secretary this year. I am excited to work with the board to strengthen towards strengthening our relationship with our community, both inside and out of the school.

Sarah Hoffman, Treasurer

I am Sarah Hoffman. I have two children, a 2nd grader and a 4-year old. This is my first year actively involved with the PTSA, and I've loved getting to know families, teachers, and staff better through the PTSA. As treasurer, I'm able to see that the PTSA's financial priorities and values align with the school's priorities and values and I appreciate the opportunity to help ensure the PTSA's financial security.

The Creativity Challenge Community will provide a 21st Century education for a diverse population of elementary age students in Southeast Denver. We believe in the importance of thinking creatively to solve problems, learning collaboratively through partnerships with community organizations and challenging each other to our highest potential. Our students will graduate with confidence in their ability to think critically and creatively, solve problems and contribute to the larger community.

At The Creativity Challenge Community (C3) each member of the learning community thinks creatively, achieves at high levels, embraces challenges, takes responsibility for their own learning and contributes to the learning of others. Students and staff focus on all aspects of creative thinking at our school and with our community partners as we challenge each other to our highest potential as leaders and learners.
