A NOTE FROM COACH BAXTER:
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 on Thursday is from 10:30-11:00, 1st grade from 11:00-11:30, and 2nd grade is from 11:30-12:00. On Friday, 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. Also, send them with a water bottle and towel for picnicking at lunch. 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!
We really need field day volunteers for both Thursday, May 17th & Friday, May 18th. Please follow the link below and sign up to help!
From our Counselor, Ms. Dean:
Students in grades 3, 4, and 5, will have an opportunity to show all that they’ve learned this year as they take a variety of STAAR tests.
May 14th, 2018: 3rd, 4th Math, 5th retest
May 15th, 2018: 3rd, 4th Reading
May 16th, 2018: 5th Science STAAR
Due to the security of this testing process, all parents (Kinder through 5thgrade), 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.
The Book Fair will be taking place all week. We will visit the Book Fair as a class at our regular library time on Thursday at 1:30, so if you would like to send money to school with your child to purchase something we will go during our normal library time.
