Dear Cedar Creek Family,



Last night many parents attended the Cedar Creek EEF House Party at the home of Rebecca and Randy Murphy.  Thank you to Mr. and Mrs. Murphy for hosting the event at their beautiful home.  In addition to Mr. and Mrs. Murphy, the entire EEF committee did an amazing job organizing the house party.  If you were unable to attend last night, please feel free to contact Mrs. Heather Valdez if you would like more information about EEF.  On behalf of the entire CCE staff, I want to personally thank you for your support.  As I said last night, I am very fortunate to serve as the principal at Cedar Creek Elementary School.



Earlier this morning, Student Council students reminded our community about our "Socktober" event, which is our sock drive.  Please remember, in conjunction with Bridge Point Elementary and Forest Trail Elementary, students can donate new socks at school through the month of October.  These socks will be delivered to various charities in time for the winter season. Thank you for your support.



As a reminder, please sign up for Parent Conferences through Skyward Family Access.  The deadline to schedule or switch conference dates will be October 24th by 4:00 PM.  After that time, if a conference time needs to be changed, please contact the teacher directly.  Remember, October 25-27 will be half-days.  All students will be dismissed at 11:50 AM.  Lunch will not be served, but buses will run.



Have a great week!


Warm regards,

Jessica Brown

Every year we create a wall of Veterans' photos to display on the butterfly garden windows. If you contributed a picture in previous years, we'll post it! If you would like to submit a new picture, here's how:


1) Please print a hard copy* (preferably 8 x 10) with the following information on the back:


* Name of Military Personnel

* Branch of Military

* Years Served

* Other Pertinent Details (e.g. Served in Vietnam or Active Duty)


2) Deliver photos to the front office. You'll find a Veterans Day folder to the right of the sign-in station.


The deadline to submit pictures is Tuesday, November 7th.
