Memo for Garden Creek Parents and Guardians


We are into our last week of school before the break. I want to take this time to wish all our families a very Merry Christmas and best wishes for the New Year! I have appreciated your support over the fall and, know that our Admin Team and staff will continue to move our school forward as they support students in their learning and growth. 

Angel Tree and Feed a Family! - Creekers went above and beyond! Our families were very well supported this Christmas and so were others beyond our school. Creekers raised $1032.89 for the CBC Feed a Family campaign AND brought in both many monetary donations, gift items and food for these families. Thank you!!

Safety Reminders – There are some students coming to school with long scarves. These can be a choking hazard on the playground while the students are playing. Please be aware of this when considering outdoor clothing for your children. 

Milk – a reminder that there is no milk this coming Friday.

Prime Minister’s Awards - Nominate an outstanding Teacher or Early Childhood Educator for a 2019 Prime Minister’s Award! For most of us, at least one teacher stands out in our memories. Those teachers played an important role in our lives as they do in the lives of today’s children. The Prime Minister's Awards honour exemplary teachers and early childhood educators that help build the next generation of talented, caring and creative Canadians. These awards include the Prime Minister’s Award for Teaching Excellence, Teaching Excellence in STEM, and Excellence in Early Childhood Education. Prime Minister’s Awards recipients can receive: Cash awards worth up to $5,000, a certificate from the Prime Minister, a National recognition and promotion of their best teaching practices

Download your nomination package and a poster today at Canada.ca/pm-awards. Submit your nomination electronically or by mail before January 14, 2019.
