As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, I am very grateful.  I'm grateful every day to work with dedicated professionals who are passionate about educating children. I am also grateful for the opportunity to serve your children in such a supportive community. One of the many supportive members of our CCE community is Mr. Chad Wicks.  Last Sunday, Mr. Wicks coordinated a Dads' Club clean-up day at CCE.  For those of you that don't know Mr. Wicks, he is committed to helping Cedar Creek in any way possible.  With his efforts, and the 25 plus volunteers, the front of our school has new walkways, several items are freshly painted and numerous plants have been trimmed. Please take a moment to thank Mr. Wicks and all the members of Dads' Club who are serving as excellent role models for our youngsters at CCE. I'm sure you will agree that we have much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. I truly hope you cherish this time special time with your family and friends.


Before we break for the Thanksgiving holiday, please come join us for the 5th Annual Eagle Dash in support of Mobile Loaves and Fishes, on Tuesday, November 21, 2017. Please see the message below from our enthusiastic co-chairs, Mrs. Erica Davies and Mrs. Sophie Gamwell, regarding donation suggestions. We would love to have you join us for the event!  Each grade will run on the field during the designated FIT time.  Please refer to the Cedar Creek website for individual class FIT times.


After a day of running, students will be dismissed at 2:50 p.m. on Tuesday, November 21, 2017 for the Thanksgiving holiday. We will be ready to welcome students back to Cedar Creek Elementary on Monday, November 27, 2017.


Looking ahead, on Thursday, November 30, 2017 at 8:30 AM, our fifth grade students will be performing, Go West. Please feel free to join us for this delightful musical.


Enjoy your Thanksgiving holiday!


 Warm regards,


Jessica Brown
