January News & Events

Welcome back! We hope you enjoyed your time off, and are ready for all the fun the new year brings. For us the new year brought us a new teacher! We are excited to welcome Mrs. Erin as our new Yellow Room Teacher and our T/Th playground teacher!

January has several fun activities happening, including music classes and chapels, the return of the bake sale, and a Chuck E Cheese playdate fundraiser! We are closed Mon. Jan 15 for Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday.

Chuck E Cheese Fundraiser: Jan 26 – from 3pm-9pm if you visit the Chuck E Cheese in Orange off Tustin and Taft and tell them you’re there for The Creek Fundraiser, we receive a percentage of sales! So come plan a play date, invite extra friends… and come play with us! Funds raised are going for our facility upgrade fund. If you can’t stay and play that day, stopping in and buying tokens to play another day also counts!

Scrap Items Collection We are collecting “found objects” and “odds and ends” of ‘junk’ for our Daddy N Me Steam Night – any and all random scrap items that could be recycled to make a Gingerbread Man Trap are needed! Please bring them to the office so we can start building our STEAM night supply bins.

New Extracurricular Classes: Stop in at the office if you need a form!
Monday & Tuesdays: Sports with Tennis & Basketball starts Jan 2 & 23.
Wednesdays: Cooking restarts Jan. 17
Thursdays: OC Martial Arts and Fridays: Dance continue and the new year is a great time to start these ongoing classes!

New Extended Day Locations: We have a new teacher schedule for the new year for our extended day program. When picking up after 1pm here’s where to find us having fun:
Mon. & Fri. – Purple Room with Ms. Erika
Tues. & Thurs. – Green Room with Mrs. Jennifer
Wed. – Yellow Room with Mrs. Erin

Chapels: Jan. 25 & 26 at 11:40am – The Green Room is teaching us the story of “The Boy Who Went Away” where we will learn that even when we make mistakes, we’re still loved by God!

Bake Sale: Jan 18 & 19 – The Orange Room Class is hosting the bake sales this month! All donations from purchasing yummy treats go to Mrs. Alisa’s class.

Year End Statements: During the break we emailed out Year End statements for the 2017 year to assist those of you that need the information for your taxes. Please let Mrs. Stefanie know if you did not receive it or need additional documentation.

Looking ahead to February….

Free Movie Night with River47 Church – our home church is hosting a free movie night Sat. Feb. 3 at 6:30 (there will be snacks!) and they’re showing Madagascar! Come join us for a fun time together for the family.

Daddy N Me STEAM Night – Thurs. Feb. 8 6:00-7:00pm
It’s Daddy’s time for a special night at The Creek! Bring Daddy and come in your Pajamas for this fun science night project. Can you catch a Gingerbread Man? We’re building Gingerbread Men traps with found objects and a lot of imagination! This is an “open house” style drop-in activity night, so come as your crazy schedule permits! (If Daddy is unavailable, a grandpa, uncle or special guy friend is welcome to come substitute)

Valentine’s Day – We will be exchanging cards to show our friends how much we love them! Look for details in your child’s classroom newsletter as the date gets closer.
