Last chance to shop! The Reindeer Store will be open tomorrow during Breakfast with Santa, from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM. The students have enjoyed shopping this week for gifts for you, family and friends. Thank you for supporting our Meadow Creek PTA!

Breakfast with Santa

Tickets are $5 for an adult and $3 for a student, with a $15 maximum for the family. Pictures with Santa will be available for $2 each. Thank you for supporting our 6th grade fundraising efforts.

Classroom Holiday Parties

Our classroom parties will be on Thursday, December 17 at 2:00. Thank you for helping the room parents plan a wonderful event. If you are planning to attend the parties, please be sure you have a current background check completed. You can do this at HEB ISD web page. We will have a sign in table for everyone who has had their background checks completed. Those without a background will need to sign in at the office through the Positive Proof system. Everyone will need to bring their picture ID to sign in. Thank you!

Friday Fun

On Friday, December 18 we will have our annual pajama day as we await the arrival of Santa Clause by helicopter. He and his friends are scheduled to arrive at 11:40.


Before Santa's arrival, we will be entertained by Trinity's performance choir, Harmony. They will perform for us at 9:45.


Our lunch schedule will be changed on December 18 so we can greet Santa at 11:40. If you are planning to bring lunch on this day, please check with us to be sure you have the correct lunch tome.

Five Below Partners with Meadow Creek PTA

Meadow Creek PTA will be holding a fundraiser event at the new Five Below in Euless in the Glades Park Shopping Center. Between December 9 and December 15, Five Below will give back 10% of the total dollars spent back to our PTA. You must bring in the flyer that was attached to the Friday Flyer email to participate. Five Below is a great place to do some holiday shopping!

Note from the Nurse!

Parents:

A few reminders as we enter cold and flu season. Please remember that students are not allowed to bring any medication to school without an order from a physician. The medication must be brought to the nurse by the parent in the original packaging. This includes any over the counter medication such as cough drops. Also remember that your child should be fever free for 24 hours without the use of Tylenol or Ibuprofen before returning to school. The same goes for vomiting and diarrhea. This information is also on page 16 of your child’s MOOSE notebook. Thank you for your cooperation and helping to keep our students safe and healthy.

Yearbooks still on sale!

Meadow Creek yearbooks are still on sale for the very low price of $25 thorough the end of January and then the price goes up. Order yours now and get this great low price!
