I LOVE Teaching Science at Creekside Forest Elementary!

This is my 20th year to teach and my 3rd year in the district.

I received my Bachelors Degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Geology from Sam Houston State University in 1997, and I just finished my Masters of Education in Science Curriculum & Instruction from The University of Texas at Arlington. I have taught students in Rockdale, Georgetown, Conroe, Spring, and now The Woodlands.  I have taught third grade through fifth grade in self-contained classrooms, and Specifically Science in fifth grade through eighth grade. 

 My conference time is 8:45-9:40 daily if you need to speak with me.

A note from Ms. Dean:

Parents, 

I would love your input as to what you value the most and feel is the most essential part of a comprehensive counseling program.  If you could respond to the survey below, that would be wonderful in helping me tailor the program to meet the needs of our students here at CFES!

Your child will participate in field day this week. K-2nd grade will be on Thursday from 9:30-12:30, and 3rd -5th grade will be on Friday from 9:30-12:30. Please make sure that they wear the color that their teacher has given them, and tennis shoes. Field day attire must follow the school dress code. Kindergarten lunch is from 10:30-11:00, 1st grade from 11:00-11:30, and 2nd grade is from 11:30-12:00. Grades 3-5 will eat after the games at 12:30. If you did not order a box lunch for your student, please be sure to send your student with a sack lunch. On Friday the cafeteria will be closed, and will not be serving the regular menu to ANY grades. Only box lunches that were pre-ordered, will be served on Friday. Please pack a lunch on Friday as well, if you did not order a box lunch.

 

Please make sure that your student puts on sunscreen/bug spray before they come to school. Please send them with a water bottle and towel for picnicking as well. We are hoping for beautiful weather, but you never know what could happen. Unless it is storming, we will plan to go on with the day. Thank you for allowing your child to participate. We are looking forward to 2 days full of fun!

Incoming 6th Grade Parents!

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.
