The Cheetah Chat

Ms. In's Inside Scoop

November 17, 2017

Dear Creek View families,


I can't believe we are already on our Thanksgiving break. I love this time of the year when we get the chance to slow down and reflect on all the things we have to be grateful for. I wish everyone a wonderful, restful break. I hope everyone has the opportunity to spend quality time with family and friends making fun new memories. I am truly grateful to be a part of such a dedicated team and community here at Creek View and to have the opportunity to work with all the amazing students.


So proud to be a Cheetah!


Best,

Monica In

Principal

Cheetah Spotlight

I would like to shine this week's Cheetah Spotlight on our fabulous Student Council members. They did a wonderful job of organizing and running our canned food drive to collect food items to be donated to North Fulton Community Charities. They packed up several boxes of food items and delivered them to NFCC this week. Way to give back to the community, Cheetahs! I am so proud of the Student Council and everyone who donated food items.

Lost & Found

Our Lost & Found is overflowing with many items. Please remind your child to stop by and take a look for items that may belong to them. Any items that are left on December 8th will be collected and donated to North Fulton Community Charities.

FCS Make-up Day - February 16, 2018

FCS has officially announced that February 16, 2018 will be a make-up day for students and staff members to make up for the days that were missed due to the inclement weather we experienced as a result of Hurricane Irma.

Morning drop-off begins at 7:10 and ends at 7:40

Please remember if you are dropping off your child in the mornings through the carpool line, the earliest your child may be dropped off is 7:10 am and carpool ends promptly at 7:40 as students must be marked tardy if they are not in the building by that time. Please remember to account for the time that it will take to go through the carpool line once you arrive on campus. The busiest time for carpool is between 7:30 -7:40 so please plan your travel time accordingly to avoid your child being marked tardy. Once the 7:40 bell rings, we must stop the carpool line, and parents must park their car and walk their child in as school has officially begun. Thank you for helping us ensure that all students are in their classrooms on time!

School Governance Council (SGC)

On October 19, the SGC met to review and discuss GMAS (GA Milestones) achievement data as our first step in determining new student achievement goals for our Strategic Plan 2022. If you have not had the opportunity to review the new Fulton County Strategic Plan 2022, please do so at the following link: www.1fulton.org

CVES SGC members will be attending various trainings during the next four months to work on content development for the CVES Strategic Plan. The next training meeting will take place on November 15 at Alpharetta Library and focus on People and Culture and Community Collaboration. The next CVES SGC meeting will take place on November 30 at 2:45 in the media center.

Cafe News

On November 1st, we will begin providing Grab & Go breakfast for our students. We are excited to provide Grab & Go breakfast as it will allow students to take their breakfast so they will be able to get to their classrooms sooner and have extra time to prepare for the start of their day.

Calling All Volunteers!

Creek View could not be successful without the help of our wonderful volunteers. It truly takes a village, and what an amazing village we have! If you would like to volunteer at Creek View this year, please make sure you complete the FCS volunteer registration process to become a registered volunteer. It takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and 24-48 hours to process by the district. You must be a registered volunteer before you will be able to come in to help with a class event/activity or any school event. UPDATE: If you completed the process last year, you do not have to complete it again this year. Please access the following link to complete the registration process: http://www.fultonschools.org/en/divisions/sup/comm/Pages/partnersvolunteers.aspx
