My Name Is Debi Baxter. This is my 8th year here at Creekside . I am so excited to be the fitness coach for the students at Creekside Forest Elementary School. It warms my heart to see children excited about being healthy and physically fit! I have 19 years experience as a teacher. I have taught middle school math, fourth grade, Pre-K, and Physical Education. Living a healthy lifestyle is something that I try to model to my own children. I am the proud Mom of three beautiful girls. They all three have their own passions. One is a junior in college this year. She is loving her freedom, and works part time in a pre-school! My middle daughter is a Sophomore at the University of Oklahoma. She is living in the Pi Beta Phi sorority house, and is majoring in Interior Design. The baby is now a Junior at Klein high school, and on the varsity volleyball team. We enjoy doing many activities together that help us to stay fit. One of our favorite things to do is enter and run races together as a family. My second passion is running. For me it has always been my time to myself. It is always where I do my best thinking. I hope to help every child find their own personal passion in the fitness world. Please email me with any questions or comments. Just select the email link on the left, and I will get back to you as soon as possible. My planning period is from 8:35-9:30. Please feel free to contact me at: debrabaxter@tomballisd.net 281-357-4526 ext 3911.  Thank you for sharing your children with me!

4th and 5th Grade Skating!


If your child is in 4th or 5th grade, a permission slip went home for skating in the Wednesday folder this past week. It is a unit that we will be doing at CFES in the gym, and will NOT be leaving campus.

Please make sure that you:


1. Sign and return the permission slip as soon as possible so you child will not miss out on this wonderful opportunity.

2. The skating unit will cost $11 per child. You can ONLY pay online. Please follow this link to pay https://tomballisd.schoolcashonline.com/

3. If you would like to volunteer to help assist the students with skating, please email Coach Baxter.

There is a copy of the permission slip on my website if you need one.



Thank you in advance. The students are really excited:)
