Dear parents,

What a wonderful year it will be at Creekside Forest! We have so much to look forward to this year. I feel very fortunate to be a part of your CFES school family.

A bit about me...I attended Indiana University of Pennsylvania, where it's chilly and windy in the winter yet full of sunshine in the summer. I studied Foreign Language International Studies for Elementary Students, which was comprised of Elementary Education and Spanish. http://www.iup.edu/ After relocating to Texas and teaching 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade, I attended Sam Houston State University and received a Master of Education in Counseling. SHSU provided a plethora of opportunities to counsel, I feel quite fortunate. http://www.shsu.edu/

Please feel free to contact me if you need assistance. I am here as your advocate.

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!

CAMPUS CLOSED TO VISITORS DURING STAAR TESTING

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, all parents (Kinder through 5th grade), will eat lunch with their children on other dates. 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.

 

Just a few test-taking tips:

  1. Make sure your child gets a good night’s sleep before the test.
  2. Have your child eat a high protein breakfast the morning of the test.
  3. Maintain a pleasant home environment and avoid unnecessary conflicts.
  4. Double check that your child has his/her eyeglasses and any needed medications.
  5. Arrive to school on time.
  6. Explain to your child to listen carefully to all instructions and use his/her time wisely.
  7. Encourage your child to do his/her best and that if they do that, you will be proud of them, and they will be proud of themselves!
