Memo for Garden Creek Parents and Guardians


Happy Monday Creeker Families,  I hope you enjoyed the weekend.  Creeker mothers...I hope you had a beautiful day on Sunday!  Parenting (from what I have observed and heard!) is the most difficult but also the most rewarding job you can have and from what I see everyday in outr little and big Creekers, that hard work has paid off! So here is to you!

Notes and Reminders:

Music Festival – Congratulations to all our Creeker participants in this year’s festival. A special mention goes to Grade 3 FI and 5 FI classes who won awards in their categories! A plaque will be given to representatives of both groups this coming Wednesday night at 7:00 pm at the Journey Wesleyan Church. WAY TO GROW!​

Regional  Heritage Fair Creeker Winners – We are proud of the students who represented us at the Regional  Heritage Fair this past Thursday, Elaina, Rhys, Joshua and Breyah. Joshua received an honorable mention and  Breyah won the School Days Museum award. Her project will be on display at the museum this summer.  Congrats, Creekers!

Correction to the Craft Fair Totals – My mistake – The Craft Fair last week brought in a much higher amount than I first reported.  $1000 was raised  for playground improvements through table  fees of about $600 and tickets sales of about $400. $675 was raised for our family in need. AMAZING!!

Spring Raffle Fundraised Totals – WOW, WOW! Thank you to all, over $3700 was raised for the school! The Grand prize winner was Hannah Karen Steeves Carney, winning $1000 worth of donated prizes – THANK YOU to all our donors! ! Two  students won bicycles donated by Savages and another two students won gift cards from Toys R US J  Jennifer Harns won a $200 voucher for a bike donated by one of our other generous Creeker parents.   Thank you Home and School for your work in this!

Volunteers Needed for the 3-5 Track and Field Day –  A reminder that 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!
