Dry Creek Explorer Express

September 2019

A Note From the Principal

Hello Dry Creek Explorers,

I am so excited to help the school kick-off our Explorer Expedition this week! Our PTCO has collaborated with the school to create a fun fitness activity to help raise money this fall that will go towards funding teacher assistants, updated technology, and grants for each creek.

Our goal is that each student gets involved by completing the free registration process and helps us raise money. Every student who registers online will receive a cool prize. In addition to individual incentives, we have also incorporated group incentives for classrooms or creeks to earn as a community.

We hope that all families will be able to stop by and cheer the students on for their run on Thursday, September 19. Below is the schedule for the morning:

8:30-9:15 am Kindergarten and First grade Run

(Fourth and Fifth grades will watch and cheer them on)

9:15-10:00 am Second grade and Third grade Run

(Kindergarten and First grade will watch and cheer them on)

10:00-10:45 am Fourth grade and Fifth grade Run

(Second and Third grade will watch and cheer them on)

We are eager to meet our mid-way goal of $20,000, so all the students receive a Kona Ice treat to enjoy after their run! I appreciate the support of families to help PTCO reach its goal and accomplish its mission of providing Dry Creek with the much needed para-professional support at each grade.
