We had a busy September at the Creek!
Thank you to everyone who supported us at our Book Fair and the Red Room Bake Sale! We hope our special guests had a great time at Grandparent’s Day too!
October is very busy: we have Big John the Fire Truck visiting us, School Pictures, Adjustment Conferences, Kindergarten goes to Tanaka Farm’s Pumpkin Patch while the rest of the school gets to visit an on- Pumpkin Patch, and our Halloween Parade and Parties.

CHAPEL: Led by the Red Room: Oct. 8 & 9
Come join us at 11:40 as Mrs. Elizabeth and Mrs. Cathy’s classes lead chapel – they’re teaching us about “Daniel and the Lions” and how God will protect us if we trust in Him.
ADJUSTMENT CONFERENCES: Week of Oct. 19
This is a short 15 minute time to ‘check in’ together as we discuss the goals for this school year, and discuss your child’s adjustment this school year. Your child will participate in the extended day or early bird program while you conference. Sign up with your child’s teacher in their classroom for time slots.
*Note* Kindergarten does not conference until November at the end of the first trimester
PUMPKIN PATCH WITH FARMER KACIE: Oct. 21 & 22
We’ll be visiting the Creek’s on-site pumpkin patch and learn from “Farmer Kacie” about how we can let God’s light shine from us like Jack-o-Lanterns… and then get to pick a pumpkin to take home!
CHAPEL: Led by the Yellow Room: Oct. 22&23
Come join us at 11:40 as Mrs. Jennifer’s classes lead chapel – they’re teaching us about “Jonah and the Big Fish” where we’re learning how God loves us even when we’re naughty!
BAKE SALE: Oct. 22 & 23
Come support the Yellow Room by purchasing treats (all by donation!) to help Mrs. Jennifer’s classes purchase goodies for the classroom!
HALLOWEEN PARADE AND PARTIES: Oct. 29 & 30 at 11am
We will be celebrating Halloween at the Creek by dressing up and having a party! Our parade starts at 11am in Fellowship Hall (the big glass window building) and then we’ll return to the classrooms for a pot luck lunch! Sign up at the parent board for what you can bring!
On costumes: feel free allow your child wear it to school if he/she can manage the day in it safely (we will be on the playground) and go to the bathroom easily. If the outfit is cumbersome or fragile, you may want to come early around 10:45 and help your child dress for the parade.
Also, we do not allow costumes that celebrate evils: no witches, ghosts, goblins, devils, undead/zombies, etc.
Add Tues. Nov. 10 to your calendars for Eat at Chick-Fil-A Orange Fundraiser Day! We’re receiving a portion of sales for every person that SAYS they’re eating for The Creek. Pass the word to friends and family too!
