Children learn best when they are healthy, and yet one of the most overlooked and most important ingredients is oral health.
USD 232 will be offering a free dental screening on Friday, February 10th to all students enrolled at Clear Creek Elementary in compliance with Kansas State Statute 72-5201. Oral health is an important part of children’s overall health, and is a critical component in the child’s ability to learn and succeed in school. If you wish to opt in for the screening, please email Nurse Amanda at firstname.lastname@example.org by February 3rd. Results will be sent home with your student.

Skate City: Wednesday, February 1st
Valentine's Parties are coming up soon! Volunteers Needed!
Winter Parties went really well and we are hoping for another successful event on February 14th!
We will need party coordinators for each class, so please sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/508054cacaa2aa5fc1-cceclassroom#/
Tuesday, Feb. 14th
All parties will be from 3:00-3:30
Party Coordinators may come in at 2:45.
Instead of doing a RSVP form, we are assuming all parents will attend and still do a sign in sheet by class in the front entry.
We will maintain a single point of entry and exit for all parents/guardians in the front entry.
No classroom doors, or doors near a classroom, are used for the entry and exit of parents during events.
We will also only allow parents/guardians to enter during this time since space is limited.
Reminder: siblings are not allowed to attend party days with their parents.
If the party ends at a time of the day were you would like to check your student(s) out for the day, you will do that in the front entry as you leave. We also ask that you get your student(s) from their classrooms instead of having them called down through the office. Just be sure you connect with your child’s teacher so they know they have left with you.

Grant funded (FREE) preschool spots are available for students who qualify. Transportation (busing) will also be available for grant funded spots and special education services (as determined by IEP team).
Preschool Enrollment for the 2023-2024 school year begins on February 13, 2023. On that date, an online application will be available on the USD 232 Early Childhood website at https://www.usd232.org/Page/9209.

Lunch Reservations: UPDATE! Please Read!
We look forward to welcoming parents and guardians to our Parent Cafe Space now that the weather is getting cooler. Please use the link below to sign up.
Due to limited space, we have to limit the number of sign-ups! But, just like before, you are always welcome to take your students outside to our picnic tables in the courtyard, sit at one of our benches or tailgate at your car if there isn't space inside or if it happens to be a day we don't have indoor seating!
Since it has been awhile, we ask that if you are making reservations, that you bring lunch with you. We order lunch foods based on typical numbers for hot lunch and don't usually have enough to serve extra lunches to incoming parents.
Even if you are bringing more than one person with you to eat with your student, you only need to sign up for one spot! We have room to at our tables for 4 per student sign up.
