Incoming 6th Grade Parents at Creekside Park Junior High

The CPJH PTO will be hosting the incoming 6th grade parents on Thursday, April 27, from 9:30 until 11:30. Principal Scott will be available at 10am to give a short tour of the school and 6th grade area. Current Jr Hi PTO members will be on hand to answer questions parents may have. We will have bottles of water and some light refreshments. This will take place in the LGI room. Attendees are encouraged to arrive early enough to get through the check-in line at the front desk as anyone who has not visited CPJH before will have to submit their license. This is meant to just be a very casual event allowing parents to get comfortable with the school, meet the principal and other parents. 


If your child is in Choir Club, please look for the year-end celebration letter in your child's Wednesday folder.  The Choir is going to Main Event on May 25th.  The cost is only $11.00 for an evening of pizza, cookies, bowling, laser tag and a $10 video/arcade card.  $11 is due May 3.  Thank you!

Muffins with Mom

Muffins with Mom is tomorrow!  Muffins with Mom is Tuesday, April 25th.  Please share a muffin with your child starting at 7:30 in the morning.  Book Fair is also in progress.

Progress Reports

Progress Reports are coming home on Wednesday.  Please sign and return on Thursday.  If your child has a grade that is lower than you were expecting ask them if they have shown you all of their graded work.  If a student makes a 60 or below on a math paper I send it back home with a note at the top to correct and return.  All grades can be checked through home access on the Tomball website. If your child has a zero in the grade book it is because I have not received the work.  I give lots of reminders to turn in work.  If they turned in work after grades were submitted you will see the grade improve once I grade and enter the missing work. If you do not have a login to  Gradebook Home Access you can check with the Mrs Williams, the registrar to retrieve it.  Thank you for everything you do to help your child be successful!

As of today, we are $19,210 dollars away from our goal of $20,000!Remember, if you raise $50, you will receive 10 tickets for the raffle; if you raise $100 you will receive 25 tickets; and if we meet our goal, we will receive a school wide dance party! We appreciate your support!! 

We are Ready!

Tomorrow is the day your child gets to show what they know!  They are ready!  I am so proud of all the hard work each child has put in to become great mathematicians.  Give them giant hugs and wish them sweet dreams tonight.

Math Staar is Tuesday

STAAR is around the corner, and we are all working together as a team to encourage our students because we know that they are all stars! On March 28th and March 29th, we will have our first round of STAAR testing for this school year. On Tuesday, March 28th, our fourth graders will be taking STAAR Writing, and our Fifth Graders will be taking STAAR Math. The following day, March 29th, our fifth graders will be taking the STAAR Reading.

Due to the security of this testing process, we will have a closed campus.  All parents (Kinder through 5th grade), will not be able to eat lunch with your children on these dates. Please make plans to do so on an alternate day. Volunteers are also asked to reschedule their time. Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter. Here at Creekside Forest, we have the most amazing parents who provide their time and care to volunteer and make our school a nurturing environment.
