FOOD DRIVE for The Village Pantry

In these uncertain times, and perhaps even more so during the holidays, our neighbors should not have to worry whether or not they'll have food on the table.


The Creek will be collecting non-perishable food donations to help supply The Village Pantry for the holiday season from November 15 through December 17.


You may drop off donations at our school entrance. Mr. Fisher will deliver them to the Village Pantry every Friday after school. A wishlist of their needs can be found on the Amazon Smiles page located here.


The Village Pantry is open to serve the needs of people in Hurst, Euless, and Bedford. They are open Tuesday – Friday from 12:30 pm – 3:30 pm.


They are located at 740 East Pipeline Road in Hurst - in the shopping center with Kroger.


If you have need, please visit them.


If you can donate, please help them. There are many way to help in addition to canned goods.

Musical Performances at the Creek!

MUSIC WITH DR. CORTESIO


Wow! What a month!


Third Grade showcased their collective talents in a moving and much-needed outdoor performance to say Thank You to our veterans and their families. This was our first group performance of the year and the turnout was wonderfully larger than expected. The kids practiced hard and performed well. Thank you to all who attended. Learning to perform in front of an audience is a valuable skill. Music ignites all areas of child development and skills for school readiness, including intellectual, social-emotional, motor, language, and overall literacy. It helps the body and the mind work together. Exposing children to music during early development helps them learn the sounds and meanings of words.


Happy Thanksgiving from Dr. Cortesio!

SCIENCE WITH MRS. MORRISON


This month, Grades 3, 4, & 5 on a design challenge problem!


Question: How long of a paper chain can you make using one large piece of construction paper with 60 cm of tape in a given time period?


Students used the Engineer design process. in groups, they made a design plan and, counted the number of links they made, and measured the distance of the paper chain in centimeters.


In their following class, they tried to beat their record, which required making a new plan!


The last part of the design challenge included choices on how thin to make the chains, which way turn the paper for maximum length, and how much tape to use since its supply was limited as part of the challenge.

ART AT THE DOOR

Every week I am gifted with art that the kid's made at home, outside of class, on their own time. Aside from waking up at the beach with Girl and Dogs, there's nothing better. I am continually charmed by their enthusiasm.
