Dear Cedar Creek Family,



Fall is here, so that means it's time for the Cedar Creek Fall Family Fun Fest!  Bring the entire family to our Fall Family Fun Fest this Saturday, October 28, 2017, beginning at 4:00 PM.  This is a great opportunity to mingle with your friends from Cedar Creek. I hope to see many of you there! Please see flyer below for more information.  



On Monday, our kindergarteners, first graders, third graders, and fifth graders will participate in the annual vision and hearing screenings. In addition to maintaining the health and comfort of our students each day, Nurse Sherry Bulluck coordinates preventative health screenings, such as our vision and hearing screenings for our campus. We are quite fortunate to have such a dedicated and committed nurse at CCE.



As October draws to a close, many students are eagerly anticipating Halloween on Tuesday, October 31, 2017.  Although Tuesday is Halloween, students will not be wearing costumes to Cedar Creek Elementary School.  However, I'll look forward to seeing the children in the neighborhood Tuesday evening. District-wide, students will also enjoy a No Homework Night on Tuesday, October 31, 2017.



Looking ahead, join me for our wonderful Walk to School Wednesday tradition on Wednesday, November 1, 2017.  Hopefully the weather will allow for a crisp walk to Cedar Creek!



Warm regards,
Jessica Brown
