Creekview Elementary is such a wonderful place for your children to learn and grow! I can hardly believe that 2018 has arrived and we are ushering in our second half of fourth grade already!
We leave on our field trip to the Sam Houston Memorial Museum tomorrow morning right after Rise and Shine. I have a few reminders to make sure that everything runs as smoothly as possible tomorrow.
We also have learning goals for our students, so that the day will not only be fun, but be educationally valuable as well.
We will be leaving the museum in Huntsville after lunch, so we should be back at Creekview around 2:00.
Thanks for helping to make this a great trip! Let me know if you have any questions!
Tomball ISD is participating in the Speak Up national research project. Speak Up is a survey designed to help students, parents, educators, and community members share their ideas directly with schools and national policymakers. The brief online survey is open to students, educators, parents, and community members through January 19, 2018. Click the link to go to the survey. If something is wrong with my link for some reason, you should also have one in your email that you have on file with the school. Speak UP Survey
Our fourth grade field trip to the Sam Houston Memorial Museum is coming!! We will go on Friday, December 15. Please send your pink permission slip from last week's Wednesday folder if you haven't already done so.
Creekview Elementary is an amazingly diverse place and we would like to celebrate that diversity with our students. On Nov. 17 from 9:00-11:00, we will host an International Day. We are asking parents from all of our cultures to come to school on that day and share about their culture with our students.
While some of the specific decisions like lengths of presentations will be determined by our number of volunteers, here is a basic outline of what we ask that you be willing to do...
o Bring props / artifacts that can be touched
o Teach the students a dance
o Teach some of the language or a song
o Try some of the food (would have to be store bought)
If you would be willing to be a part of this process and share about your culture, please sign up below. We will contact you with more specific information when we reach the sign-up deadline.
DEADLINE: MIDNIGHT ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 5TH (I just noticed the deadline...and I apologize for the late notice. Perhaps there would be some grace if you need extra time, you could contact them)
