Creeker Family Memo #32-Week of April 26th, 2021

Good afternoon Creeker Families:


We hope you are all well and  that you enjoyed the beautiful weekend. On another note, I would like to thank Miss Simon for being part of our Creeker Community. She has been replacing Mr. Slack for the past 4 months in Grade 5 and has been a positive influence and  dedicated educator for our students .  We wish her well in her future work. We welcome Mr. Slack back next Monday.


School Survey 2021 -  Thank you to all families who took part in our school survey. We had a 65 % response rate and are compiling the data. We will share an overview with you as soon as possible. We look forward to implementing some suggestions that you offered as well. We are always open to suggestions and information that can lead us to grow in our work for the support of your children.


Hot Lunch Utensil Reminder – To be more environmentally friendly, please send in utensils for your child to use on hot lunch day. We are continuing with Fadi’s for the next two weeks.  Hot lunch orders are due by 4 :00 pm Tuesday.


Cashless Schools 4% fee - Beginning May, a transaction fee of 4% will be applied to items offered in school cash.  This will be applied to all items whether purchased by cash, cheque or e-wallet.  Please see attachment for more info.  School Cash online additional fees.pdfSchool Cash online additional fees.pdf
