Memo for Garden Creek Parents and Guardians

Good afternoon, Creeker families,

December is coming in very merrily with some  not very merry weather – please be safe on the roads as you enjoy what the season has to offer.


Wreaths and Poinsettias Pick Up Rescheduled  Due to the possible storm day tomorrow, we are rescheduling the pick- up of wreaths, poinsettias and Christmas cactus. The time on Wednesday will remain the same 11-1, but we will change the Tuesday pickup to Thursday 10-11 and 2-4. If you have and friends or family who planned on picking up but are not part of the email list or on our Facebook group please inform them of the changes.  Pick up location is by the music room


Chapter’s Night Rescheduled to this WednesdayDue to the possible storm tomorrow, we are rescheduling Chapter’s Night, including the performance by our choir, to this coming Wednesday, December 4th. The choir will perform at 6 pm and the night runs from 6 to 9 pm. 15%  of  all sales go directly to our school so please bring your family and friends out to get some shopping done, support our school and listen to our beautiful choir!  


Angel Tree – Thank you so much to those Creekers who have supported our Creekers Helping Creekers Angel Tree. All angels and the funds are due back by this Friday, December 6th so that items can be purchased. Thank you! HO HO HO!


Did you Know??  Composting has started in ten classes.! Food scraps are being collected and transferred to a larger outdoor compost bin on a daily basis . The bin will be picked up at the end of  each  week by a local composter. Each month ,pick-ups will cost $30 and every 5 weeks a  new package of large compost bags  will be needed ( $10.00) . If you or your organization would like to sponsor a month, please let us know! A tax receipt can be issued for sponsorship above $25.00  Exciting adventures are in the making  as we move along the Eco-school route and being greener.  


Milk Orders and Container Recycling – As previously mentioned, our milk containers cannot be recycled at school and this has a huge consequence in trying to be more environmentally aware in our school community. If you plan on ordering milk for your child the second term, please note we plan on sending the containers home  in hopes that they will be recycled in your home bins.   Milk orders can be placed starting on December 9th on Cashless schools
