Autumn Creek Elementary Newsletter
October 26, 2021
I have noticed some of our families have been coming to take advantage of lunch with their kids on Tuesdays and Thursdays. It is fun to see, and your kids really love it. You are welcome to bring outside food for only your family. We encourage you to take advantage of this as things start to loosen up.
I want to thank the many Watch D.O.G.S. we have had in our building over the past few weeks. Truly you all make a difference here. One dad even wanted me to pass along to the teachers and staff that he has new appreciation for what they all do each day, and he guaranteed he'd be back next month. We are truly better as a school when our parents and our community are involved!
We also appreciate you all for coming to conferences with your child's teacher. We hope those are informative and that you are able to get questions answered. This information exchange and dialogue are best for kids because it helps we as a school to be on the same page as you! Please continue to prioritize those as they will always produce good outcomes for your kids.
Thank you for your ongoing support of the Bluejays!
Staff Favorite Book
Mrs. Cofield shares her favorite book with us this week called, "Fish in a Tree" written by Lynda Mullaly Hunt
Everyone goes through struggles but the character Ally presents a gentle story of a middle school kid who gains acceptance of her disability, self-worth, emotional and academic strength and the freedom to be herself aided by a caring teacher. Although I don’t have a disability, I do struggle with life sometimes like most people. Fish in a Tree is an example of the way I feel going through my divorce. Knowing everything is going to fall in place, living a life of happiness and joy today gives me hope for the future.
Instructional Strategy for Families
afternoon pickup updates
We announced last week that we needed your help at dismissal, and many of you responded. For those who have been parking on the street who moved into the car dismissal line, we thank you! The process is running smoothly now and you can stay in the air conditioned comfort of your car the entire time. A few other updates:
If you pick up multiple kids and haven't received a combined car rider tag that uses one number, please be sure to pick one up at the office anytime next week.
If you are still parking on the street, please do not park on the Autumn Creek side of the street. We need consistency with parking on only one side of the street, and Humble ISD police will be helping us to enforce this.
