  • Parent Teacher Conference Dinners
  • Upcoming Fundraiser Dinner

Dear Creekside Families, 

We are looking forward to parent/teacher conferences on October 15, 23 and 25. Asking questions during parent-teacher conferences is one of the best ways to partner with teachers, deepen your understanding of how to best support your child, and make the conference meaningful for you. 
Here are some helpful questions that you may want to ask: 

• How is my child doing academically? Are they performing at grade level? 
• What do you see as his or her strengths? 
• In what areas could he or she improve? 
• Does my child do all the assigned work, including homework? 
• How is my child doing socially and emotionally in class? Have you noticed any changes over the year? 
• Do you feel like my child is doing his or her best? 
• Is there anything else I should know about how my child is doing?
• Does my child need extra help in any areas? 
• What do you recommend we do at home to support what you're doing in the classroom? Do you have any resources that would help me?
• What kinds of questions do you suggest that I ask my children on a daily basis about your class?

STORY: Board of Education passes resolution in support of Amendment 73



Latino Parent Advisory Council (CAPL) has been created to facilitate deeper dialogue between Boulder County's community of Latino parents and the school district.

Como parte del plan de 100 días del superintendente, BVSD está creando un Consejo Asesor de Padres Latinos (CAPL) para facilitar el diálogo entre la comunidad de padres latinos del condado de Boulder y el distrito escolar.


CAPL se reunirá con los líderes de BVSD cada dos meses para hablar de asuntos de importancia para los padres latinos y el distrito.  Bianca Gallegos, directora de Columbine; Augusto Di Laura, subdirector en Centaurus y Ari Gerzon-Kessler, Director de Colaboración Familia-Escuela, facilitarán las reuniones de CAPL.


La primera reunión tendrá lugar el 7 de noviembre.  El consejo tendrá unos 30 asientos aproximadamente disponibles para padres, con una representación regional de todo BVSD.  Si está interesado en formar parte de este importante consejo, por favor llene esta encuesta. Si lo prefiere, puede imprimir la encuesta y devolverla en la oficina principal de su escuela.


Le agradecemos de antemano su apoyo a esta importante iniciativa del superintendente del Distrito Escolar del Valle de Boulder.  

Creekside celebrated Walk to School Day on Wednesday. We had a invigorating walk to school! Thank you Hannah Nordhaus and her team for making the walk so successful!

Creekside prides itself on being a welcoming school. We strive to foster strong relationships between families and staff. To ensure successful communication with your student’s teacher,  please refer to and respect the communication preferences of each grade level/teacher. If a concern or conflict arises, we ask that you kindly follow the Creekside Problem-Solving Protocol referenced below.

We value our family partnerships. Thank you so much for being a part of the Creekside community!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Warm regards,

Francine

Problem-Solving Protocol

One of our most important aspirations as a welcoming school is to truly partner with our families. We take time to celebrate and share. We also work through concerns and solve problems together. Schools are dynamic places, issues will arise, and we want to make sure our families feel comfortable voicing their concerns, while we do our best to address them.

 

Here are some important, basic tips, when you have a concern about something at school:

 

  • The first step to addressing a concern is to contact your child's teacher.

  • Describe your concern in its most open and simple form ("I'm worried that. . ."  or "My child told me that. . ."). It is important that teacher and parent understand the problem before trying to solve it.

  • Ask questions and listen for the teacher's perspective.

  • Focus on the concern, not the people involved.

  • Be prepared to explore options for resolution together.

  • Follow up on the outcome.

  • If you have a concern about a teacher or staff member, talk to that person directly.  It is not fair to staff to talk to them about one of their colleagues.

  • Please respect teacher and student confidentiality.

  • If parties are unable to solve an issue, a facilitated meeting with administration may be scheduled.  


We all want the very best for our Creekside students, and if we come together openly in any circumstance, we can usually find common ground and reach a successful outcome.


Creekside’s

Sock-tober

Clothing Drive


During the month of October, Creekside Student Council is organizing a clothing drive to collect winter clothing for children. We will be collecting winter socks, winter gloves, winter hats, winter boots, and winter coats which will be donated to the Emergency Family Assistance Association here in Boulder. Each item will be awarded points, and the class with the most points at the end of October will win a popcorn party!


Donation Requirements:

  • We are asking students to donate NEW clothing items

  • Clothing should be your child’s size so we will have a variety of sizes


Each item is worth a different amount of points

1 pair of socks= 1 point

1 pair of gloves = 2 points

1 winter hat= 5 points

1 pair of boots = 20 points

1 winter coat = 20 points


We appreciate your help and support with this drive!

Dear Creekside Families,


We had our first LEAP Assembly this week. LEAP is the cornerstone of Creekside's Positive Behavior Support System. LEAP stands for Leadership, Empathy, Accountability and Pride. Teachers instruct, review and reinforce LEAP behaviors throughout the entire school day. Students can earn LEAP tickets and LEAP stickers for exhibiting LEAP behavior.  


LEAP Assemblies are written and facilitated by our Student Council under the direction of fifth grade teacher, Robin Gutierrez. For the first assembly the students provided an overview of each LEAP letter including skits and a power point! They did an outstanding job!


The assembly also included a tribute to staff member, Kim Valek, for whom a buddy  bench has been dedicated. Miss Kim was an important and much loved member of the Creekside staff. She is sorely missed.


First grade visited Miller Farm today!

Art Room News:

visiting artist resized 3.jpgGuest Artist:

This week 4th and 5th grade students welcomed local artist (and Creekside Kindergarten parent!) Lindsay Ternes into their art classes.  The students learned about Lindsay’s process as a Plein Air artist, painting from life outside, and how she finds inspiration in and around beautiful Boulder.  We also went outside to see Lindsay’s easel, specialized painting gear, and see the steps she goes through to create her oil paintings. It was a lot of fun to see her work and supplies up close and to learn from a professional artist!  Students will put what they have learned to use in our next art class as they create their own Plein Air artworks. Thank you LIndsay for sharing your time and talent with us!


Local Art Opportunity: Boulder Open Studios

During the first 3 weekends in October, Lindsay and 138 other local artists will open their studio doors to the public during Boulder Open Studios.  This is a wonderful opportunity for families and people of all ages to meet artists, see them at work, and ask questions. All different types of art will be represented, from painting and ceramics to jewelry and metal sculpture.  Many artists even have a kids table for artmaking! Check out the website: www.OpenStudios.org for more information.

The design of this school truly puts students at the center of learning, providing multiple ways for students to learn and experiment.

TRIP TRACKER! 
BVSD’s Trip Tracker program has started up for the new school year! If your kids travel to school via school bus, carpool, biking, scootering, skateboarding or walking, they can earn awards to use as cash at participating businesses all over town. This year's businesses include Glacier Ice Cream, Lucky’s, Fleet Feet Sports, Piece Love & Chocolate, Gateway Fun Park, Play It Again Sports and many more! 

If your child participated in past years you don’t need to sign up again—just track your child’s non-single-family-car trips to school so you can record them at the end of the month and wait for the bucks to arrive in Friday folders. 

If you haven’t yet enrolled child in Trip Tracker, it’s a great program and a huge motivator for the kids to earn Trip Tracker bucks. You can register here: https://www.bvsd.org/transportation/toschool/tracker/Pages/default.aspx - then click the “REGISTER HERE” link towards the top of the page. 

WALK TO SCHOOL DAY IS OCTOBER 10!
October 10th is International Walk to School Day, a global event that involves communities from more than 40 countries walking and biking to school on the same day. We will meet at 34th St. and Martin Drive at 7:35 am (all school buses will drop the kids off there as well) to walk together the last few blocks to school! 

We’ll need volunteers to help make posters and signs and alert the neighbors in the days before the event, and to pass out food and chaperone the parade that morning. We’d love your help! Please sign up here: https://helpatschool.org/schools/4/events/108

Dear Creekside Families,

Safety is of the upmost concern to all of us in the Boulder Valley School District and we are committed to keeping our school communities safe. We know that before learning is possible, our students and staff must feel secure, so we have developed measures to protect our children and to respond in the event of a threat at our schools.Please see the Be Ready page of the district website for safety videos, procedures and how we communicate with you during an emergency. 

Creekside conducts regular fire, lock out and lock down drills. Drills are always announced to the students and staff prior to being activated, and as I mentioned in my email following our lock down drill this past week, if you are ever in the neighborhood and hear the lock down alarm you may log on to the district webpage where all non-drill/practice lock outs or lock downs will be posted on the front page. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.

State Testing

Recently the Colorado Department of Education published spring 2018 test scores for schools on the Colorado Measures of Academic Success, also known as CMAS. Third through fifth graders participated in this testing April of last year. I am writing to let you know how we did as a school.


I appreciate everyone’s support for test participation.  We had much higher participation than in past years. About 96% of our students took CMAS, compared to some 95% statewide in 2018. With that, 2018 is a new baseline year.


Our new baseline data will inform our strategies, and be used to measure progress over time in narrowing gaps between student groups. Data will also be used for improving performance of students served in special education and emerging bilinguals, and the performance of our school as whole.  


Creekside students outperformed the state, with 65% meeting or exceeding CMAS standards in English Language Arts and 55% in Mathematics which put Creekside in the 95th percentile.  Statewide, about 44% met or exceeded expectations in English language arts and 36% in Mathematics in 2018.


The state calculates student growth percentiles to tell us how much growth each student (4th and 5th grade)  made compared to others who had similar test scores in past years. Our typical growing Creekside student outpaced 73% of students across the state in English Language Arts, and 74% in math. These results put Creekside in the exceeds category for both academic achievement and academic growth.


When third through fifth grade results are examined by student group, our emerging bilingual students, students who are eligible for free or reduced lunch, and our minority students all met expectations in English Language Arts and Mathematics. In addition, each of these student groups exceeded expectations in growth in both English Language Arts and Mathematics.


I am so proud of all of our students and staff, and look forward to another great year of academic achievement and growth!!


Individual student score reports are available in Infinite Campus Parent Portal using these directions.  Paper copies of these reports will be available at school later in the year.  


Please feel free to call the school office if you have any questions.     


Garden Lessons have begun at Creekside!

We are happy to partner with the GROWE Foundation to

employ experiential learning to connect academic subjects to real life. The experiential learning framework employed in each of the Garden to Table lessons is based on four elements:

  1. Connection: of academic subjects to real life activities.
  2. Knowledge: reinforcing and expanding students understanding of academic subjects.
  3. Skills: Providing opportunities to learn new skills and build proficiency
  4. Application: empowering students to use the knowledge and skills they have learned in everyday life.

This week second graders had a lesson on insect habitats and watched a praying mantis in one of the garden beds.

  • Save The Date December 10th!

Dear Creekside Families,

We are so excited to begin our new social emotional learning (SEL) program, Mindful Life. 

Mindful Life™ defines mindfulness as paying attention to the present moment with kindness

When mindfulness is practiced regularly, the practice stimulates our prefrontal cortex. Mindful Life™ programs for schoolscombine what we know about the brain with practices that help our brains function the most effectively.

Each week teachers receive a new mindfulness strategy to teach to their class. In addition, I will send out a Mindful Monday email outlining the strategy, tips for home practice and how the practice works inside the brain. We look forward to teaching students minfulness skills so they can live happier, healthier and more productive lives.

4th and 5th Grade Parents
CMAS score reports are available in your Parent Portal. Please contact the front office if you would like a paper copy.

We've had a great start to school and appreciate your support. Information will be coming next week regarding Back to School Night on September 12, 2018.

Have a nice weekend!

Kind regards,
Francine

  • First Restaurant Fundraiser of the Year!


Dear Creekside Families,

Welcome back to school! We are so thrilled to start year two in our fabulous building! A very warm welcome to our new families and returning families. What a treat to see our newest Cougars, the kinder students (1/2 of them) start today!

Thank you so much for following our Hug and Go lane procedures:
  1. Pull up as far as you can.
  2. Have your student ready to get out of the vehicle as you enter the lane.
  3. Have your student exit the vehicle and proceed directly to the sidewalk.  
  4. Please do not park in this lane or exit your vehicle.
  5. If you wish to escort your student to the entrance or pick them up and walk them back to your car, kindly park your car in the lot or on Martin Drive.

WE NEED YOU! The School Accountability Committee (SAC) is looking for new members. The purpose of SAC is to inform, encourage, and provide opportunities for parent and community members to be involved in the planning and evaluation of the school's budgetary and improvement processes. This means we discuss things like:
  • Unified Improvement Plans (UIP)
  • Budget priorities
  • Safety Issues
  • Parent Engagement
We need parent representatives to reflect our school's amazing diversity to join our SAC. Becoming a member of SAC means:
  • Attend SAC meetings held six times per year. The time and dates are decided at the first SAC meeting which will be held on September 18, 2018 at 8:00AM in the school conference room.
  • Become informed about school programs and budgets.
  • Be a voice for our school.
We are currently assembling our SAC. Please contact me if you are interested. 

The Best Way to Raise a Concern at Creekside Elementary

One of our most important aspirations as a welcoming school is to truly partner with our families. We take time to celebrate and share. We also work through concerns and solve problems together. Schools are dynamic places, issues will arise, and we want to make sure our families feel comfortable voicing their concerns, while we do our best to address them.

 

Here are some important, basic tips, when you have a concern about something at school:

 

  • The first step to addressing a concern is to contact your child's teacher.

  • Describe your concern in its most open and simple form ("I'm worried that. . ."  or "My child told me that. . ."). It is important that teacher and parent understand the problem before trying to solve it.

  • Ask questions and listen for the teacher's perspective.

  • Focus on the concern, not the people involved.

  • Be prepared to explore options for resolution together.

  • Follow up on the outcome.

  • If you have a concern about a teacher or staff member, talk to that person directly.  It is not fair to staff to talk to them about one of their colleagues.

  • Please respect teacher and student confidentiality.

  • If parties are unable to solve an issue, a facilitated meeting with administration may be scheduled.  


We all want the very best for our Creekside students, and if we come together openly in any circumstance, we can usually find common ground and reach a successful outcome.


Have a great weekend!

Warm regards,
Francine

Grant Writers Needed

We are so happy to report that Creekside just got a grant for $1,380 from the Jared Polis Foundation!!!  Mary Strine, 3rd grade teacher, applied with the help of Creekisde parent Mike Kennedy. The grant will pay for 4 mini ipads for Mrs Strine's class to use with their Lego Robotics program, but she will share with other classes that need them!

This is so exciting for  the school!  Because I know my youngest kids are graduating this year, I wanted someone to take over this critically important way that Creekside has received A LOT of money ($120,000) in the past six years.  Alissa Sims trained Mike this fall on how to write grants and because he  is an amazing writer as part of his profession, he hit it out of the park on his first try!  

All teachers have the ability to apply for many of these classroom grants, but they usually have little time and sometimes little experience writing a grant.  If you are interested in working on grants with Mike and the teachers, please connect with him ( mwkeno@yahoo.com ).  We can always use the help and you can just support the Creekside Grant Writing Initiatives when you have time.

We are waiting to hear about one more grant and have our fingers crossed that this trend will continue!  Congrats to Mike and Mrs Strine!!  Thank you both!
