 Volunteer Opportunities:

*5th Grade Trailers could use a little holiday spirit – please drop off any holiday decoration donations to Ms. Coley in the carpool line.

*Creekside is partnering with World Wear Project, whose mission is to provide wearable and affordable shoes to third world countries while benefiting United States’ landfills by reducing refuse by millions of pounds.
To benefit this project, we are collecting clean and wearable shoes (no stains, holes, or overly worn). World Wear Project will accept the following types of shoewear for women, men and children:


  • Athletic shoes (NO cleats)
  • Leather shoes
  • Dress shoes
  • Casual shoes
  • Canvas shoes will NOT be accepted
Be on the lookout for the cardboard bins inside Creekside so you can donate those old shoes you have hanging around that you have been waiting for an opportunity to give away!

It’s NEVER too late to join the Creekside PTA!
