Meadow Creek Monday Message

Tuesday, October 13

Welcome Back!

I hope you had a wonderful three day weekend and got lots of rest and relaxation!

Conference Forms

Thank you for letting me look over you conference forms and sign them. Once you turn them into me I have given them to Stephanie to make a copy. If you have not yet turned in your conference forms, please turn in the students you have met with. We will be sending home the forms all on the same day. Right now the plan is to send them on Thursday, October 15.


Please be sure to file the original conference form in the students' cum file!


Thank you!

Automated Calls

The district is sending home a letter today to all families about the automated phone calls that we send about reminders, upcoming events and school closings. A parent can "opt out" of receiving any non-emergency automated phone call. The letter will give families a chance to say "no." If they don't mind getting the calls, they do nothing. They do not have a letter to return. So if you have a family who does not send anything back, no worries. If you do get a letter from a family that says "no" be sure to put it in my box. We have a deadline to notify the district to exclude the families for future calls. Thank you for your help with this!

Spring Creek Spirit Nights

Thank you for encouraging your students to attend this fun event. Thank you to those who signed up to work! Thank you to those who bring their families to eat!


This is a great way for us to raise some funds, for the school, that allows us to purchase things that we do not have the funds for...such as the ice machine, the poster printer and the split rail fence. We have some more plans for the beautification of the front and then will be ready for a new project.


Spring Creek does a nice job of thanking the students and the staff for their participation! We hope to see you at Spring Creek on October 19 or October 20!

Appraisal

Be sure to sign up with Doreen or Bill for your appraisal. Our goal is to have everyone done before the Christmas Break! Thank you!

Ranger Red Day

We will have a Ranger Red Day tomorrow, to show our support of the Texas Rangers. They are in a must win situation tomorrow as they play game 5 against Toronto.


Please wear a Texas Ranger shirt or red with your jeans tomorrow!

Reflections Entries due on Thursday

Please remind your students that the PTA Reflection contest entrees are due on Thursday, October 16. All entries must have the parent permission slip attached to the back of the students work.

Red Ribbon Poster Contest

The posters for our Red Ribbon Poster Contest are due on Friday! Please help students turn in their posters by 8:00 Friday morning in the office!

Pansy Pickup

If you ordered pansies, pick up will be on October 20 from 12:30 to 5:30. Thank you for supporting our beautification efforts.
