CREIGHTON SHOWCASE FOR 5TH GRADERS
Creighton Middle School’s Annual Showcase for incoming 5th graders will be Thursday, December 15th, 2022 from 5-7pm. This is an opportunity for our students and their families to learn a little more about Creighton, their programs/classes, meet some of the staff, and start to familiarize themselves with the school. The night will start off with a presentation with information about the school, classes, curriculum, schedule, staff, etc. After the presentation, the families are going to be allowed on a self-led tour through the school to see the classrooms, work that has been done through our elective classes, meet staff, and become familiar with the school. If families are interested in the GT program, there will be another meeting/presentation in the library while other families are on the school tour.
The school will have interpreters for the tour and the presentation will be done in Spanish by their Family Liaison, Mr. Robles.
ENROLLMENT FOR 2023-2024
Enrollment for the 2023-24 school year is now open EXCEPT for preschool families. EnrollJeffco will be open from December 6, 2022 until January 13, 2023 for Round 1. It is helpful to let us know if you’re coming back next year, so that the District can prepare for next year’s staffing, budget, resources, and more for our school. Visit enrolljeffco.org to learn more.
ALL FAMILIES MUST SIGN IN TO ENROLL JEFFCO AND LET US KNOW WHAT SCHOOL YOU PLAN TO ATTEND NEXT YEAR. (EVEN IF YOU PLAN TO STAY AT EIBER!)
Preschool Enrollment Process
New this year: Jeffco families will use Colorado’s Universal Preschool Program (UPK) application to enroll in preschool for the 2023-24 school year. Families will not be able to apply for preschool in EnrollJeffco until January 2023 due to implementation of the new UPK application. This change is for preschool enrollment only. Visit this webpage to learn more. As more information becomes available about Preschool Enrollment, we will update everyone on the new process. Thank you for your patience.

FAMILY ENGAGEMENT NEWS
Hello Eiber Families!
I hope that you are all gearing up for a fantastic holiday season! In addition to having a fun and relaxing break, there are many fun things that you can do with your students at home during our holiday break to help them stay engaged with school! The winter vacation is a break from school routines. But learning can continue anywhere, anytime. To encourage it over break, use some of these examples from "The Parent Institute":
- Brainstorm ways your family can help the less fortunate.
- Have your child interview older family members about the past.
- Read a book together that was made into a movie. Then watch the movie. Talk about the similarities and differences.
Offer fun ways to read
Students strengthen their reading skills when they read often. Encourage frequent reading with enjoyable reading activities. You can:
- Follow current events. Is there a developing news story that interests your child? Read the latest reports together.
- Sign your child up for a pen pal. Ask a teacher or librarian how to get involved.
- Listen to audiobooks. Have your child follow along in a printed book while listening.
- Give reading coupons. Some might be for 30 minutes of reading with you. Others might be good for a new book
We hope to see you at our Holiday Family Night! Please reach out to me if you are interested in volunteering at the event! We would love to have some of our student's older siblings help with the event!
