WELCOME COUGAR CAMPERS...

WE ARE READY YOU!!


The staff and I are so excited to finally get this school year started! We have waited patiently for the Return to Excellence and know that CFES will begin Blazing the Trail to Excellence today! I know that this school year provides some challenges and worries as well as some excitement and new adventures. As you begin the journey know that the staff and I are here to support the many changes and challenges we face together. I am confident that we will get through it all by working together and letting our Creekside Forest Spirit shine daily.

Have a great week and please continue to take care of yourself and each other.



Sincerely,

Sherri Trammell

CFES Camp Director

SCHOOLOGY


TISD Information about Schoology:


  • Schoology enables our students, parents, and teachers to engage with learning materials and their school community from the classroom and beyond. We look forward to using Schoology in our classrooms to enhance connectivity and communication. As a parent, you will be able to view your child’s activity within the platform. We value your participation in your child’s education, and we encourage you to read Schoology’s Privacy Policy & Terms of Use at https://www.schoology.com/privacy.



*****The following information was sent to all parents from TISD on Friday. Please do not stress! Our teachers will help parents and students gain access and become comfortable with Schoology.


  • To sign up for a new Schoology account, go to Parent Schoology Login and click Parent.

  • The district sent your child's 12 digit access code last Friday via email. Codes can also be found in the Home Access Center.

  • Fill out the form to create an account that will be linked to your child

  • Click Register to complete. Once you log in, you will be able to browse your child’s courses. If you have additional children attending Tomball ISD schools you can add them to your account using the Add Child button from the top right dropdown menu. You will receive a different Access Code for each child enrolled in Tomball ISD. When you use an Access Code to create an account, you are automatically associated with your child and can toggle between your parent account and children’s accounts.
