Hey this is Matt Scott, Principal @ Creekside Primary.
I hope everyone had a safe and happy weekend.
We only have 4 weeks of school left!?! The last week of school is only a 4 day week and the last day is a ½ day.
That’s only 19 more lunches for all you moms and dads who pack lunches each day.
The last day of school will be May 27th. May 27th will be a ½ day of school.
Creekside Primary & Elementary have been awarded the 2021 Blue Ribbon Schools of Excellence Lighthouse School Award. Great job students, staff, parents and community for making our school a Blue Ribbon School! More details will be shared soon about our Blue Ribbon Lighthouse School award.
Teacher Appreciation Week is this week! This is a great time to show how much you appreciate your child’s teacher and to thank them for all of the hard work they have put into this school year. We have some special ideas of ways to say thanks to our teachers:
Monday - You are noteworthy - write your teacher a note or draw a picture to say thank you.
Tuesday - My teacher is a treat - Bring your teacher a snack!
Wednesday - You make us bloom - Bring your teacher a flower!
Thursday - Supply them with thanks - Bring your teacher some school supplies!
Friday - Thanks are in the cards - Bring your teacher a gift card to show them how much you appreciate them.
Field Day is scheduled for May 6th for Creekside Primary and May 7th for Creekside Elementary. We will have a smaller scale version of our traditional Creekside Field Day. To keep our numbers low, students will travel to stations in smaller numbers and no visitors will be allowed. We are looking forward to a fun day for our students.
