From our Principal's Pen
Hello, South Creek Gators!
September has been a great month for South Creek! Please continue to send your child to school with their mask and their water bottle. Students are doing a great job following our safety procedures!
Picture Day will be held on Monday, September 21st. We look forward to seeing your child's smile!
We are completing our beginning of year assessments and look forward to sharing that information with you at our Parent/Teacher conferences! Conferences will be held in the evenings on September 30th & October 1st. Please sign up for a time to VIRTUALLY meet with your child's teacher. We look forward to sharing your child's learning with you!
On Monday, September 21st you will receive a survey from FTCSC in regards to our Online Learning or In-Person Learning options. If you do not wish to change your child’s current learning option, please delete and disregard the email. If you do wish to change your child’s current learning option, please complete the survey. Again, only fill out the form if you wish to change your student’s current learning option.
Please read the information below from our PTO and other school departments. The staff of South Creek wishes your family well! Stay healthy and stay safe!

Updates from our PTO
Our PTO is a non-profit organization whose membership is open to any parent, guardian, or teacher at South Creek Elementary. We work together to help build a strong relationship between home and school. We work to support our students, teachers, and staff through events, activities, and raising funds – and we try to have fun doing it!
There are many ways you can become involved with the PTO. First, you can fill out a membership form at the link below for $5. You will be added to our email distribution list so that you can be updated on all the PTO opportunities.
PTO meetings are held once a month in the evenings. We are even able to "Zoom" with you if you prefer to attend virtually. Our next meeting will be Monday, October 19th.
Back by popular demand is our Texas Roadhouse order form for rolls & honey butter! For every roll and butter order we sell, 50% of the proceeds come back to our school! Orders are due September 30th. Orders will arrive the week of November 16th and will be here just in time for Thanksgiving! Rolls are $5/dozen & $2/for each cinnamon honey butter. Get yours today!
Each year our school hosts a huge Veteran's Day program for our school community. Due to COVID, this has unfortunately been canceled, however, we are still honoring our veterans and supporting our PTO at the same time! Information will be coming home soon about our first Veteran's Day Student Triathlon. This exciting day will take place on November 11th. We look forward to sharing more details with you!
