Dear Cedar Creek Families,


It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving is one week away!  This is one of my favorite holidays, because it represents a time to reflect on the many people and things we are thankful for.  I want the CCE community to know how thankful I am for each and every student, parent and staff member; this tight-knit community is truly special!  I wish you a week filled with family, friends, laughter, relaxation and fun!


Thank you to everyone who came to celebrate Veterans Day at CCE on Monday!  It was a special tribute and wonderful way to teach our students about those who have served our country.


We hope to see you tomorrow at our Friday assembly at 7:40AM!


We are also looking forward to Eagle Dash tomorrow!  We will not be asking for donations like in the past, we want to simply focus on having fun before the week-long holiday break!  Here is the plan for Eagle Dash Day:

During Specials – two classes will go to the gym and run laps as a fun competition; the other two classes will be learning yoga.  Then, the classes will switch.

During FIT – a parent in each grade level will be talking about health and nutrition, while teachers help students think about things they are thankful for and also touching on limiting video games/screen time as we embark on our week-long Thanksgiving break.

** 2nd grade Specials will change tomorrow to 8:50AM-9:40AM


Here are some upcoming dates:

  • Friday, November 16

Eagle Dash race/yoga during Specials

Health/Nutrition/Fitness Education during FIT

  • Monday, November 19-Friday, November 23

  • Friday, December 7

From the Art teachers:

Hello wonderful CCE families!  We are writing to inform you of a few fantastic art opportunities this weekend:

1. The East Austin Studio Tour! 

This is an incredible two weekend long event (this will be its last weekend) organized by Big Medium, wherein artists spanning much of east Austin open their studio doors to the public. There are art making festivities, outdoor art installations, and many family friendly activities throughout the weekend as well!

2. The Waller Creek Show!

Presented by Waller Creek Conservancy, Creek Show is an outreach program designed to surprise and delight audiences with outstanding light based art installations that celebrate, support, and educate the community on the importance and impact transforming Waller Creek will have on Austin's social, cultural, and ecological future. Launched in 2014 as a one night event, Creek Show has grown in popularity each year with an estimated 20,000 attendees visiting last year.

Also, our new CCE Art Studio Instagram account is up and running! It will be updated on a weekly basis with images and information about what our AMAZING young artists are learning about and creating in the art studios! Find us @cceartstudios

Thank you so much for your time and attention to this email.  We hope that everyone has a lovely and very Happy Thanksgiving!

Ms. Grantges & Mrs. Smith (The Art Teachers of CCE)
