Field Day Info 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.
A note from our music teacher: If your child has a speaking part in Thursday’s program, please work with him/her for memorization, as well as speaking as slowly and clearly as possible, and with voice inflection so that it does not sound like it is being read. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Thank you! Donna Rae Fender
Tomorrow, April 24 (Tuesday), is Muffins with Mom at 7:30 a.m! We hope you can join us for muffins and a visit to the Book Fair!
The Book Fair will be taking place all week. We will visit the Book Fair as a class tomorrow afternoon, so if you would like to send money to school with your child to purchase something we will go during our normal library time.

Important Reminder: Field Trip Permission slips are due on Friday, April 13! We will be visiting the Oil Ranch on April 20!
*Red Homework folders are due every Friday, with 1 writing prompt completed! Please make sure your child is writing at least 2 complete sentences.
*Please make sure your child is returning their green reading bag (with books) each week, on his/her reading day. I will send home new books when the books from the previous week are returned. Students should be reading their books daily....practice, practice, practice! Repeated readings will help with their fluency, and comprehension skills. Students should be able to talk about the book and answer questions after reading. You can find some Reading Comprehension Questions on my webpage under the Kindergarten Printables link. Thank you for your continued support at home to help your child be successful this year in Kindergarten! The end of the year will be here before we know it!
