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

School Memo # 13 - Tuesday, November 26, 2019
 

​Memo for Garden Creek Parents and Guardians

 

 

There are many thanks to be noted today!

Interviews : thank you to all our parents who came out to discuss your children’s progress with our teachers. We look forward to more open communication in the remainder of the year and celebrating successes! If you did not have a chance to meet, it is never too late! Just call the office or email the teacher to set it up. Please remember that we are always open to meeting with you at any point of the year as needed.

Fundraising Efforts! Thank you to our Creeker Community for a huge success at our Bazaar! Well over 10 000 dollars were raised and fun was had by all! Thank you especially to our committee, especially our leads, for their amazing work and enthusiasm!   We also note that the Acorn fundraiser brought in $1000 along with movie night at $620.  These monies will go to rejuvenate our playground and for other items and initiatives needed in our school.

Playground Update – The updating to the playground has gotten underway this week. A new swing set, and funnel ball will be installed as well as the necessary borders and pea gravel. The older tether ball poles were removed along with the old swing set.

Physical Education Note from Mme. Plourde – This month we are working on a unit in gymnastics. Grades 3-5  Students are asked to balance on different types of equipment. This week , a helmet will be required for certain balance boards, which is mandated in the curriculum document. Helmets will be provided, but if you prefer that your child bring their own from home, this is acceptable as well. Thank you.

Wreaths and Poinsettias –   Dates for pick up at the school are as follows: Dec 3 from 10 – 11 and 2-4    Dec 4 from 11 – 1 . Thank you to Julie Werner for her Christmas work!

Chapter’s Nightnext Tuesday, December 3rd , is a chance to get some shopping done at Chapter’s and to support our school. 15%  of  all sales from 6-9pm go directly to our school. Our beautiful grade 3-5 choir will also be performing, so come on out for a festive night of shopping and listening to carols. The choir will perform at 6:00 pm.
