Box Tops for Education
Help us earn money for outdoor equipment!
It's as easy as BUY, SCAN, EARN!
If you receive a paper receipt, a quick scan with the Box Tops app will identify participating products and automatically credit your school's earnings online.
Whether you've ordered groceries for delivery or pickup, shopped through your store's app, or requested an email receipt at checkout, you can earn Box Tops with digital receipts too.
We currently have gone from $80.30 with Box Tops to $82.60
One of our goals this year at Creekside Elementary School is to ensure that we have effective communication with our families at the school level. This survey pertains to school-wide communication and is not in reference to specific parent-teacher communications.
Please use the link above "We need your feedback" to complete the survey by February 10th to let us know how we are doing so far. This data will be used to help us make improvements and adjustments to our communication plan.
Be on the look out for additional information regarding this special fundraiser where you can purchase your child's art! Students are currently working with Mrs. Perkins to create their special works of art which can be turned into the items below. More information should be coming home in March!

Novel Study, a project from Mrs. Beaver
Help me give my students an engaging novel, Tonight on the Titanic. This resource will provide every student in 3rd a novel to read, as we dive deep into this historic event to promote the love for reading. Recently, we read a passage about the Titanic, and our students were fascinated by this historical event.
Mrs. Angie in the cafeteria has several important reminders and updates for you!
- We are unable to accept credit card payments IN the cafeteria. Parent lunches must be purchased using check or cash.
- You may use a credit card if you utilize the Titan School Solutions website and put money on your child's account.
- If your student's available lunch balance is in the negative, you will receive an email. The cafeteria is no longer sending home paper notices. Please keep an eye out for these digital notices.
- Thank you for helping to make the Croc Cafe the best!
