A Message from Principal Sarlos
Hi Coyote Families,
I am so grateful for all your communication and support. I am so happy that the air is clear at the moment and our state is the nurturing rain we so badly needed. My heart goes out to all of you who may have families who were evacuated over the last couple weeks.
I know from your feedback that some of you are slowly finding a rhythm with our new distance learning model and others are still experiencing challenges with either tech or schedules. Know that everyone in our system is doing their very best to troubleshoot and work through these challenges.
The very best part of all of our days right now is seeing your children doing their best to engage with teachers and one another every day.

Register for the School Bus
Registration will remain open until Monday, Oct. 5, before begin determining exact bus routes. The sooner people register, the fewer route changes need to be made once bus service begins. Thank you in advance for your prompt response in this essential preparation for onsite school.
School Advisory Committee (SAC) Openings
Committee members are appointed to serve two-year terms, 2020-2022. If you are interested, please complete and submit the SAC application Carrie Beach (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Friday, Oct. 2. Applications will be reviewed, and recommendations sent to the School Board for appointments.
PTO Corner: Drive by for Pie!
How do you get your pies? (It is as easy as pie!)
First, order your pies at the Oak Creek Elementary PTO website by Friday, October 23rd.
Second, drive through the Oak Creek Elementary parking lot on Saturday, November 10th at 3:30pm. Your order will be ready and waiting to be placed in your trunks. I don’t know about you, but I am thinking Thanksgiving dinner will be much easier with a delicious premade pie!
PTO fundraisers support teachers and classrooms, science nights, class parties, field trips, Art Lit, and Staff Appreciation Week, scholarships, and more! Scholarship donations go to those OCE families in need (meals, field trips, school supplies, glasses, etc.).
Please note that in addition to ordering pies at oakcreekpto.square.site, you may also make donations to the OCE PTO.
Thank you for your support!
