Thank you to our CFES community for generously demonstrating our life principle of service! We collected 5,413 pounds of peanut butter, and along with Creekview ES and Creekside Park JHS, we collected a total of 12,700 pounds of peanut butter, which feeds 50,800 people! That makes 190,500 sandwiches! Peanut Butter will be donated to Keep Us Fed. Keep Us Fed is a non-profit organization that gathers wholesome and nutritious surplus food to help fight food insecurity.

  • Attention 3rd Grade Parents: Due to an overwhelming response of third grade families that completed the robotics interest survey, we had to do a random draw for students that will be selected to participate this year. If your child was randomly chosen (CFES admin did the random draw) you will receive a letter in your child's Wednesday folder tomorrow indicating which 6 weeks session they will be enrolled in. We are sorry that we could not accommodate everyone; however, keep in mind all CFES 3rd grade students participate in robotics throughout the school year at designated times.
  • Mark your calendar for our Friends of Creekside CFES Fundraiser. Kick off is October 13th! This is our first and only fundraiser for this semester. We need your help!
  • Yearbooks for the 2022-2023 school year are now available for purchase! Purchase CFES Yearbook!!
  • Help needed. We would love some extra hands in our cafeteria daily to assist with cafeteria duty. Cafe Volunteer Sign Up

Why should you donate to our Friends of Creekside Fundraiser?


Along with our amazing teachers and staff, the generosity of our community through the years has been one of the driving factors that has impacted our ability to continue to be a Top 10 Texas elementary school. The sole purpose of our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is to enhance the educational experience of each student that attends Creekside Forest Elementary School. Every donation received through Friends of Creekside helps to fund field trips, technology upgrades, educational subscriptions, classroom supplies, counseling resources, STEAM supplies, library resources, club sponsorships, P.E. equipment, playground equipment, and so much more! Through your generous donations, our children will continue to enjoy and benefit from programs and activities that set us apart from other schools. Every donation, small and large, makes an impact. Please consider donating starting October 13!
