Memo for Garden Creek Parents and Guardians

Good afternoon Creeker Families,

We are into the last 2 months of school and going strong with beautiful weather as well. Please read below for reminders and new items as well as dates . 

Music Festival – Congratulations to all our Creekers who performed in the Music Festival as well as our ‘in house” concert. We are fortunate to have such talented students! 

Craft Fair – Way to go to our Home and School for organizing this event –we had approx. 30 booths filled with quality crafts and food items. A big thank you for the generous donations to support a family in need – your generosity brought in $675 for them and counting! The fair brought in $358 dollars from the rental of the tables.  Looking forward to next year as this was a fantastic way to showcase talent in our community and provide a service to the public as well.  

Volunteers Needed for the 3-5 Track and Field Day – Track and Field for grades 3-5 at the Creek will take place on Thursday, May 23rd . We need volunteers to help with these events. If you can lend a hand for the morning, please let us know by calling into the office or responding back to this email. Thank you for your support!
