October 4th Eagle Blast


 October 4, 2016

Our Boosterthon Fundraiser was a SOARING success!!!  With your help, we have over $28,000 in pledges!  We surpassed our goal by over $1000! We could not be more proud of our students, staff, teachers, parents and community! We will keep you posted on how the money we raised will help our students, teachers and school. Thank you, again for all of your hard work in getting those pledges!

October is shaping up to be an exciting month at Creekside… stay tuned for information about upcoming events.

From the Principals Desk…

Parents thank you so much for all your support during Boosterthon! Our school community will raise over $28,000 if all pledges are collected! These funds will help increase classroom libraries and fund field trips for our students. We have such an amazing community and we thank you for all your support of our school. 

We are also excited about all the wonderful things going on at the Creek this month.  Please join us for some great events in October!

Boosterthon Fun Run

WE DID IT!!!  We surpassed our goal this year by over $1000!  Creekside’s Pledge Proffit is $28,327.89!!!

Our students and staff had a great time with the Boosterthon team over the past few weeks! Now the important part begins… collecting the pledges you entered!  Please reach out to your donors and thank them for their pledge, let them know how many laps your student ran and encourage them to pay their donation online. If they’d prefer to give cash or write a check, that’s great too!  Checks can be made out to “Creekside PTA”  and returned to your child’s teacher in the envelope that came home.

Our first collection date is on Tuesday, October 11. PLEASE have your pledges turned in by that point.  You can also still enter pledges until the 11th if you have family members that still want to donate!

If you’d like to help us count and enter the collections on 10/11, please sign up here
