Social Justice – September

Social Justice – September

Dear parents,

Our school vision statement is this: Empowering a Diverse Community of Life-Long Learners. In order for us to accomplish this, we decided to try something a little different this year. We would like our students to get to know each other better every day and have a great relationship with peers and adults at Creekside. We will be having monthly themes and projects. This month’s theme is: identity. Students should be talking about what makes them who they are, where they come from, and what makes them different or similar to other students at Creekside. Students will have nine squares on a piece of construction paper where they will put nine things about themselves. This will be done at school. Some questions that your child can ask at home:

  • What does my name mean or why did you choose this name for me?
  • What is the best thing that has happened to me or what is an important life event for me?
  • Talk about holidays, celebrations, activities, food
  • Talk about the members of the family

Please try to have this communication at home so that students are prepared to talk about themselves and who they are. We will be sending out monthly letters with a theme, so that discussion can happen at home and at school. Thanks for all your support and if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher.


Justicia Social – Septiembre

Estimados padres,

La visión de nuestra escuela es: fortalecer una diversa comunidad de novatos por vida. Para que nosotros podamos hacer esto, decidimos hacer algo un poco diferente este año. Quisiéramos que los estudiantes se conozcan más cada día y tener una gran relación con estudiantes y adultos de Creekside. Tendremos temas y proyectos cada mes. El tema de este mes es: identidad. Los estudiantes deben de hablar de que los hace como son, de donde vienen, y que los hace igual o diferentes a otros estudiantes de Creekside. Los estudiantes van a trabajar en un papel de construcción con nueve cajitas donde pueden poner 9 cosas de ellos mismos. Esto será completado en la escuela. Algunas preguntas que los estudiantes pueden preguntar en la casa:

  • ¿Qué significa mi nombre o porque escogieron ese nombre para mí?
  • ¿Cuál es la mejor cosa que me ha pasado a mí o que es un evento importante en mi vida?
  • Hablar de las celebraciones o actividades, comida que come la familia

Hablar de los miembros de la familia
Por favor tenga esta conversación en casa para que los estudiantes estén preparados para hablar de ellos mismos y quien son. Mandaremos cartas cada mes con un tema para que la conversación pueda ocurrir en casa y en la escuela. Gracias por toda su ayuda y si tiene preguntas, por favor comuníquese con la maestra de su hijo/a.



PTO Meeting – Tomorrow, Wednesday, Sept. 13

Hello Creekside Families,

Greetings from the Creekside PTO (Parent Teacher Organization)! We hope you are having a great start to the 2017-2018 school year and would like to take a minute and share some information about the PTO.

This year the PTO Board is made up of five members:
Co-Presidents – Jennifer Wells and Amy Wemken (
Vice President – Jocelyn Weiler (
Secretary – Elisha Pendry (
Treasurer – Brittany Puglise (

Please feel free to contact us if you have questions or would like to get involved.

At Creekside, The PTO is an integral part of the school community. The PTO helps supports our students and staff with fundraising, events, teacher support, and fun community building activities. Some of the big events sponsored by the PTO are Creekfest, Farm Day, and No Cook Nights. Our first big event of the school year will be Walk-A-Thon on Friday, October 6th. Last year we raised over $10,000 and the money raised from the Walk-A-Thon helped to fund the folder/planners given to students, teacher support, 6th grade recognition awards, and various other programs around the school. Our goal for this year is $15,000. Packets will be coming home soon and we hope you will help us reach this goal!

Another event coming up on Friday, November 17th is Creekfest, a fun-filled night of games, food and fun. We will be sending home dates of the other activities planned, including Movie Nights, Swim Nights and much more. If you have any suggestions or would like to volunteer, feel free to contact any of our board members.

PTO meetings are the second Wednesday of each month. Some months, in addition to the meetings, we will incorporate Parent Workshops. More details about these special meetings will be provided as the date approaches. Our first PTO meeting will be Wednesday, September 13th at 7pm in the Commons and we would love for you to join us. We need more parents like you to be a part of the Creekside PTO. Come out and see what we have planned for the school year. Don’t worry if you have to bring the kids, childcare will be provided.

We wish you a great school year and we hope to see you soon!

Algunos de los grandes eventos patrocinados por la organización PTO son Creekfest, día de la granja, y las noches de no cocinar. Nuestro evento mayor es la caminata Walk-A-Thon que será el viernes 6 de octubre. El año pasado recaudamos más de $10,000 y este dinero ayudó a patrocinar los folders y agendas que se les dieron a los estudiantes, se apoyó a los maestros, favoreció las graduaciones de 6to grado, y muchos otros programas dentro de la escuela. Nuestra meta de este año es de $15,000. Los paquetes irán pronto a casa y esperamos que ustedes nos ayuden a alcanzar este objetivo.
Otro evento venidero es el festival de Creekside (Creekfest), que será el 17 de noviembre, una noche llena de juegos, diversión  y comida.
