April events at Clear Creek

PTO and so much more!


Clear Creek Families-

I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your continued support! Our auction was the best one yet, bringing in just over $13,000. Wow! It would not have been possible without each and every one of you. You donated money and items to the classroom baskets, purchased tickets, played bingo, shopped the book fair, and bid on silent auction items.

Our auction coordinators, Vonda Norman, Melanie Blackmore, and Amy Shideler deserve a special thank you. They put in tireless hours to organize the event. The auction takes months to plan, and they make it look easy.

The money raised from the auction is put right back into our school. Clear Creek’s PTO purchases many items for classrooms, specials teachers, office staff, and the school itself. I know, as parents, you are always curious to know what your money is used for, and I would like to share with you a few of the items that have recently been purchased with fundraiser money. Here is just a small sampling:

Art supplies for Mrs. Clark

Novel set replacements

5th grade calculators and easels

Supplies for SPED—Zones and SuperFlex

Desk maps for 4th grade

SIT spots for kdg

Helen Keller novel sets for 3rd grade

Plastic tubs for Nurse Amanda

Kansas Flags for all grades

Handwriting Without Tears supplies for Kdg-2nd grade

A new climbing structure for the playground (to be installed)

Pencil sharpeners for classrooms

Power cords

And much, much more

Thank you!

Becky Crabtree, Clear Creek Elementary PTO president

April FOOD DRIVE to benefit the DeSoto Food Pantry

All month long we will collect non-perishable food items for the DeSoto Food Pantry. We have received news that the pantry has a critically LOW inventory of food itemns to offer to the community. Can you help?
