Important Back to School Events

Canyon Creek Families,

The 2014-2015 school year is right around the corner!  We are excited to welcome our Comets back to CCE and meet our new Comets, as well.  We are busy preparing for a fun and exciting school year.  During these next few weeks we have many events planned.  Please mark your calendars for the events below. 
Thursday, August 21st           8:00- 10:00 a.m.     WELCOME WALK
Your child’s teacher will visit your home between 8 and 10 a.m. for a quick visit to meet your child.  This is one of my favorite traditions here at CCE.  The neighborhood will be busy with excited teachers and students.  If you are not able to be home during this time, please call 512-428-2800 and let us know.  We will make sure your child's teacher gets the message.  The teacher will leave the welcome packet by your front door. 
Thursday, August 21st          4:00 – 6:00 p.m.     SUPPLY PICK UP
If you pre-ordered your school supplies through PTA, please stop by the school to pick them up. This year the PTA has a new process.  Pull into the driveway, stop in front of the portable buildings, a volunteer will greet you at your car, retrieve your supplies for you, without you ever leaving your car!  Now that is service!  
Friday, August 22nd          7:30-10a.m.     PTA FALL FLING
The PTA will be hosting its FALL FLING in the Canyon Creek cafeteria.  During this time you can purchase school t-shirts, yearbooks, PTA memberships, sign up to volunteer, add money to lunch accounts, drop off medications to the school nurse, and much more!
Friday, August 22nd              8:00-9:00 a.m.     SUPPLY DROP OFF               
Your child will be able to visit his/her classroom, drop off supplies, and get organized for the first day of school. 
Monday, August 25th          7:30-8:15 a.m.     KINDERGARTEN ORIENTATION
Calling all Kindergarten parents!  Come to the Canyon Creek Library to visit with the Kindergarten teachers.  They will answer any questions you have and make sure you and your child are prepared for the first day of school. 
Tuesday, August 26th     FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL
The doors open at 7:20 a.m.  Students and families are welcome to arrive any time between 7:20 and 7:40 a.m.  We prefer for students and teachers to be settled in by 7:45 a.m.  Beginning at 7:45 a.m. Kindergarten parents are welcome to meet in the Library for COFFEE AND KLEENEX.  We know the first day of Kindergarten is a big day for you and your child.  Join other Kindergarten parents for coffee, and kleenex for tears of sorrow or joy.  Everyone handles it differently!  :-) 
I am looking forward to a great school year.  Be sure to visit our website for school information and calendar events.  The staff will work hard to keep our website current with up-to-date information throughout the year.

See you soon,
Jenny Kasson, Principal
