This is a tradition for our 5th graders and a great fundraiser for our end of year picnic. Students should fill out an interest form in their homeroom if they would like to play; and we encourage everyone to come to the game! Tickets are $2.00 at the door for each person, and food will be available for purchase at the game. Outside food is not permitted. Please contact your child’s teacher with any questions, and let us know if you would like to volunteer.
We need teachers, parents, and students to complete the many projects that we have planned.
Any amount of time would be much appreciated.
This is a great opportunity to improve the curb appeal of Creekside and to spend some time with your Creekside friends.
