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.

exemplary attendance, behavior, and academic achievement. Students who have had perfect attendance for the entire year or earned The President’s Award for Educational Achievement will be honored on stage with a medal and certificate. If your child has earned either Perfect Attendance or The President’s Award for Educational Achievement, you will receive an invitation. We hope you are able to attend this wonderful ceremony acknowledging our students’ efforts this year on Tuesday, May 29th in the cafeteria, at 9 AM here at Creekside Forest Elementary!
Due to the security of this testing process, all parents (Kinder through 5 th 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
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!

We kicked off our school year with the Watch D.O.G.S. program.
WATCH D.O.G.S.® ( Dads Of Great Students) is an innovative program
from the National Center for Fathering focusing on the prevention of
violence in our nation’s schools by using the positive influence of
fathers and father-figures for a two-fold purpose:
1) to provide an unobtrusive presence in the schools, and
2) to be a positive and active role-model for students at school.
Watch D.O.G.S., please remember to complete the volunteer
application on the Tomball website. Please permit at least two weeks
for the application to process. Schedules are posted on my Edlio,
teachers have an electronic copy, and Christie Jenkins has a hard copy
at the front desk.
Please contact Ms. Jenkins to schedule/reschedule your Watch D.O.G.S. appointment.
