Mill Creek Holiday Food Drive

Mill Creek's Holiday Baskets ‑ 2015

The staff and students of Mill Creek Elementary School will be participating in a holiday giving project by helping to provide food to several families in the Mill Creek community.

We are suggesting that each child bring in certain food items (as identified below by grade) to contribute to the holiday meal. Contributions will be collected beginning Monday, December 7th through Tuesday, December 15th. Mill Creek’s student council representatives will assist in packing the contributions.

If you are aware of any family that may benefit from our project or if you wish to donate a ham or turkey, please call Ms. Budniewski, our school nurse. She can be reached by phone at 267-893-3615 or email at .

We appreciate your voluntary participation in this worthwhile project. We truly believe that in giving we also receive, and helping others immeasurably enriches our children’s lives.

Communication Survey

Dear Central Bucks Parents and Guardians,

In the past few years, communication across the district has greatly evolved. Our district and school websites have been upgraded with the intent to make them more mobile-friendly, our school newsletter format has been standardized, and we have integrated Facebook and Twitter for the sharing of information. Given all of these changes, we wanted to poll our families on the effectiveness of our information outreach.

Here is a link to a brief survey that will help us gather your feedback and to ensure that information and updates are reaching our families in the most efficient manner. The link will also be available on the district webpage. If you have children in multiple buildings, please feel free to complete multiple surveys or utilize the final question to differentiate your responses.

We value your insight and appreciate you taking the time to complete the survey. If you have any questions, please contact Community Relations at:
