School Supplies.png
Dear Parents,

Teachers have ordered your student's school supplies!  We are requesting a donation that goes towards these supplies.

Based on our last year's supply list, we are requesting a donation of $45.00.

To make this process even easier, you can make your donation with a credit card!  You can use Discover, MasterCard or Visa Credit or debit cards for your donation!!  Our web store accepts payments over the internet 24/7.  BVSD has contracted with RevTrack, a national credit card payment processor, so we are able to provide you a secure site for making payments. 

To access the Creekside Web Store, please click on 
Grades K-5 only
 
The new website is so simple and walks you through the process!   (If you would like step-by-step, more detailed instructions for paying with a credit card click on this  Detailed Instruction Letter.pdf

Of course, if you'd rather make your donation with cash or a check, please have your child bring it to the office with their name and 19-20 grade level on the outside of the envelope.  Please make checks out to Creekside Elementary  In the memo section please write "School Supplies".

Not all families are able to pay for their supplies.  If you would like to help other Creekside families you can make a larger payment.  All funds collected will be applied to the school supply costs.

Thank you for your support and we are excited to try this new way of ordering supplies.

Warm Regards,
Francine Eufemia
Principal

Halloween falls on a Wednesday this year and we will be celebrating in the following way:

Students may wear a costume (no masks, weapons or scary items) or pajamas to school and participate in a fall parade at 8:15. The parade route will wind around the school and viewing for parents can be in any of the play areas or near the picnic tables outside the cafe.. 

Students may stay in their pajamas for the rest of the day, but if they wear a costume they must change after the parade and classroom celebrations. There will be an alternative activity provided for students that do not wish to participate or watch the parade.
​ 

Following the parade some grade levels will be holding a breakfast or an afternoon party. All food served at these fall celebrations should be healthy and contain low or no sugar.
​ ​Individual classroom teachers will let you know if they are having a breakfast or party.


We invite parents to stay for the parade and the celebration, however, this is an academic day, and students will be expected to engage in learning after the celebration
​, so we kindly ask that all families  leave campus
​ after the parade
, unless volunteering in a classroom.

We are looking forward to a fun October 31st at Creekside!

The fourth and fifth graders, in addition to PARCC Math and Language Arts (ELA) , take Social Studies in 4th grade and Science in 5th grade. All students will need headphones or earbuds for testing. 

Our students have grown tremendously academically, socially, and emotionally this year. We are all very proud of their efforts, and know they will approach these tests ready to show what they have learned.

Students that opt out of testing will complete quiet, independent activities aligned with the content being assessed.

Reading for pleasure unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Here's what you can do to help children develop stronger reading skills and a love for reading:

Set the example. Let children see you read.

Have a collection of books in your home. Update this collection routinely to keep pace with changing tastes and reading skills.

Support our school's Book Fair. Allow your children to choose their own books to read.

 Our Scholastic Book Fair is a reading event that brings the books kids want to read right into our school. It's a wonderful selection of engaging and affordable books for every reading level. Please make plans to visit our Book Fair and be involved in shaping your child's reading habits. 

Visit our school's homepage to hear the latest Book Fair news, RSVP for events, sign up to volunteer, and more!

If your children aren’t already registered in the BVSD Trip Tracker program, this is your invitation to sign them up.  Participating students earn Trip Tracker dollars for walking, biking, carpooling or riding the RTD or School Bus to school. Trip Tracker Dollars can be spent like cash at over 50 local businesses like Alfalfa’s Markets, Glacier Ice Cream, Gateway Fun Park and Play It Again Sports. Students can also choose to donate their Trip Tracker dollars in support of one of seven, local, non-profit agencies in Boulder County. The goal of the program is to reduce automobile congestion and pollution in front of participating schools.

You can register for the program by clicking HERE.  If you participated last year, you will not need to re-register for this year. This year we will track and reward for ‘green trips’ from September 1 through November 30 and January 4 through April 28. The September calendar is attached to help you keep track of trips.  You will be able to report each month’s trips on the Trip Tracker website during the first week of the following month. You will receive a monthly email reminding you to do that.

The first Trip Tracker Dollars will be distributed in mid-October.  Dollar distribution happens either in the cafeteria (all middle schools and some elementary schools) or through Friday Folders (many elementary schools).

We hope that you will be able to join us in making our school zones safer for our students.
