Happy Veterans Day!
I was thrilled to be able to put together this iMovie of all of the pictures gathered of our CCE Veterans! That being said, I had some trouble with some images converting over correctly. So, I wanted to also provide access to the Google Folder that includes all of these pictures! You can view a slideshow when you click on the link below.
Thank you to everyone who shared their loved ones with us. These pictures filled my heart with pride for our country!
I'd also like to thank our teachers for spending extra time this week teaching about Veterans Day to our students. Not only did the Special Team spend time celebrating with them, classroom teachers shared pictures of the Veterans in their life, showed our iMovie, made cards, read stories, and learned more through our new social studies program which taught about Veterans day at their appropriate developmental level.
While some cards made it home to the specials Veterans in our students lives, we also had some delivered to CGSC and to the Veterans in the Army Administration. They all thought the letters were amazing and they were so thankful to receive them.
Once again, it is our honor to recognize the Veterans of CCE. If you served for our country, we thank you for your service and we know we owe you more than we could ever say. Thank you!

Teacher Appreciation: Coffee Truck Donations
Dear CCE Families,
During this month of Thanksgiving, we are once again bringing the Coffee Truck back to Clear Creek as a way of showing our gratitude for every staff member! If you are able to assist with a monetary donation, please use the link below to sign up. The donations can be submitted to the PTO either by Paypal (Clear Creek Elementary PTO) or by cash/check made out to CCE PTO. All donations need to be marked that it is for the coffee truck so the PTO knows what the money coming in is for.
Thank you for your donations!
Jen Mier and Dana Blubaugh
The Coffee Truck is coming back to CCE on November 22nd. The staff enjoys and greatly appreciates this treat that we are able to provide for them! We are kindly asking for monetary donations again this year as a way to show our gratitude to each staff member at Clear Creek.
2021-22 Clear Creek Outstanding Artist
Second grader Harper Loosbrock was honored as a 2021-22 Clear Creek Outstanding Artist on Monday night at the Board of Education meeting. Each school in De Soto School District chooses one outstanding artist each year. Her water lily painting, inspired by Monet's gardens at Giverny, was selected by a team of staff members last year as an outstanding for her age. It will now become part of the permanent collection of student artwork at the school district offices. Congratulations Harper!

Lunch Reservations: UPDATE! Please Read!
We look forward to welcoming parents and guardians to our Parent Cafe Space now that the weather is getting cooler. Please use the link below to sign up.
Due to limited space, we have to limit the number of sign-ups! But, just like before, you are always welcome to take your students outside to our picnic tables in the courtyard, sit at one of our benches or tailgate at your car if there isn't space inside or if it happens to be a day we don't have indoor seating!
Since it has been awhile, we ask that if you are making reservations, that you bring lunch with you. We order lunch foods based on typical numbers for hot lunch and don't usually have enough to serve extra lunches to incoming parents.
Even if you are bringing more than one person with you to eat with your student, you only need to sign up for one spot! We have room to at our tables for 4 per student sign up.
