Last Minute Holiday Shopper gifts are due Monday, December 8th. Thank You for assisting with this program.
The CCR team is looking for some small trinket items for their prize box (i.e. Happy Meal Toys, party favor type toys, etc...). If you have any you would like to donate, please leave in the office for Mrs. Rice.
A Special Note from Dr. Brown:
It’s never easy to make this kind of announcement and I have delayed it because, quite frankly, I just did not want to do so. Some of the staff members have been aware of my decision, but I have not told the students yet. You may share it with them as you deem appropriate.
I will be retiring on 31 December 2014 after serving Wake County for over 34 years. The last day of classes will be the early release on Friday – 19 December 2014.
It has been an honor and a pleasure working with your students. Thank you for all you have done for Middle Creek…making it a wonderful place to teach.

Sign Up for School Text Messages from our Principal:
I will be utilizing a text messaging service that will allow me to quickly communicate pertinent time-sensitive information. This will not take the place of a phone messenger and/or a letter being sent home school-wide, and is optional. This service may be beneficial to families who may not be near their home phone during the school day. This service does not allow for incoming messages.
To Sign Up:
In your text message box, enter the following code: @mcep to (919) 585-5676
After doing so, a message will be sent to your phone asking you to enter your name. Please follow the prompt, entering your first and last name(Please do not use nicknames), and press send. Once this has been completed, you will be registered for the text messaging service.
To be removed from the text messaging service, please email Mrs. Parrish at email@example.com. Please include the name you entered when signing up for the service.

Father Daughter Dance:

We are looking for volunteers to help with the planning and work up front to make this the best Daddy Daughter Dance yet! To do this we will need lots of help.
Please send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer. It does not matter if you have one hour or more, we really need your help to make this dance a success.
Please send your name, email address and phone number to email@example.com so that we begin to arrange some meetings to start planning!
