​Memo for Garden Creek Parents and Guardians

Good afternoon, Creeker Families,

Well it looks like last week I jinxed us with my positive,, sunny spring weather statement – as I look out my window, I see flakes falling ! 

Term 2 Achievement Reports – Thank you to all our parents who met with our teachers. If you did not get a chance, please call and set up an appointment – it is never too late for a good conversation about your child’s progress. As well, please send in those goal forms if you have not yet done so! 

Parent Survey Monkey – ALMOST last call on our parent survey monkey – please complete this to help improve our school – we need your input!  : https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/GCSparents2019

Canada’s Favorite Crossing Guard – we have a chance to highlight what a great job that our crossing guard, Anne Draper, does at the top of our hill, keeping our students ( and parents!) safe as they cross.  For more information and to nominate a crossing guard, register here.

Creeker Book Fair  –  Thank you to all our volunteers and especially Mrs, Doucet in all the work that went into the book fair. We made                     $ 5688.60 , which mean $ 2559 in books for our school! YAHOO!! Thanks for your ongoing support. 

Parking Lot Traffic  Improvement – You may see me outside by the parking lot exit more often at end of day, asking that you ensure you do not park beyond the fence into the driveway. We need to keep that area clear for the safety of our students.  Thank you! 

Donations for Raffle for Craft Fair needed! – As our Home and School work on our  1st Creeker  Craft Fair coming on May 4th from 10 – 2 pm , we are in need of donations for the raffle , specifically gift cards of any denomination and from any business ( as in store or restaurant etc..) . You can drop these off at the office and we will collect them. Thanks for your help!
