CELEBRATIONS
Box Tops
Our Box Tops Contest was a HUGE success this year!!  Thank you so much to everyone for participating!  Here are the final results:

1 - Morris - 3,292
2 - Neuman 3,239
3 - Miller 3,208
4 - Pina 2,166
5 - Ogle 1,848

We surpassed our original goal of 30,000 Box Tops ($3,000) with a final total of 33,333!  Our Comets will all be rewarded with a School-wide Pajama Day to celebrate their efforts. Stay tuned…the date is “to be determined”.  Thank you Barbara Cowman, our PTA Box Tops Coordinator!

Safety Patrol
Our 5th Grade Safety Patrol students are doing an outstanding job!  Their dedication, service, great attitudes and commitment to safety is easily observed.  We love our Comets and are so proud and appreciative of the work they are doing. Thanks Coach Tighe for organizing this team so well. 



CAMPUS NEWS

CCE Student Council
We are excited to announce that this year we will form our very own Canyon Creek Student Council!  Students in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade will have the opportunity to run for Student Council.  We will have representatives from every 3rd, 4th and 5th grade classroom.  An information letter has already gone home with students and soon teachers will begin discussing the election progress.  The goal of Student Council is to give students a voice, provide opportunities to support campus initiatives and help carry out projects which benefit CCE.  Each Student Council member will be assigned to a Kindergarten, 1st grade or 2nd grade classroom and will regularly report to their assigned classroom in order to keep all Comets “in the loop.”  

Cook Out
We encourage all families to join us on Friday, October 31st for a CCE Lunchtime Cook Out.  The cafeteria will be serving Hamburgers or Grilled Cheese Sandwiches.  Reservation slips went home this Tuesday in students’ Tuesday Folders.  Classes will “dine” during their regular lunch times. There will be some tables set up in the cafeteria, but we encourage students, staff and families to enjoy the beautiful weather and find a spot outside to enjoy lunch—picnic style!  Please send in your Reservation Slip so the cafeteria can plan accordingly.  Be sure to indicate if you are interested in the vegetarian option (Grilled Cheese Sandwich).  If you are interested in volunteering on this day, we would love extra help!  Please contact Kathy Gilligan, our Cafeteria Manager @ canyoncreek_cafeteria@roundrockisd.org

Student Holiday
Monday, October 13th is a Student Holiday!  We will miss the students, but we are looking forward to a fun day of learning here on campus during staff development.   

Arrival and Dismissal Reminders
We have placed cones in the Boulder Lane Driveway during arrival and dismissal.  The purpose of these cones is to assist the traffic flow during these busy times by defining a two-way entrance/exit in this driveway.  Regardless of whether you plan to use the car line or plan to park in the lot to escort your child/children to or from school, please enter the driveway using the RIGHT “lane” only.  This will allow cars access to exit the driveway.  When cars enter through the left “lane”, it blocks cars from being able to exit properly.  If you need clarification, please feel free to contact the school office.

Also, if your child/children walk to school alone, please be sure they are using crosswalks where we have crossing guards.  We have had a few reports of children not doing this.  It is still dark and can be hard to see children crossing, especially when they are not using designated crosswalks.  We want our Comets to be safe!

Red Ribbon Week
We will celebrate Red Ribbon Week the week of October 20th – 24th.  Red Ribbon Week is an alcohol, tobacco and other drug and violence prevention awareness campaign observed annually in October in the United States.  Red Ribbon Week is a great opportunity to expose students to the importance of being drug free and making healthy choices.  You will receive more information in next week’s Tuesday Folder.  Students and staff will stand UNITED against drugs! We will “Sock it to Drugs”, “Put Drugs to Bed” and “Put a Cap on Drugs” throughout the week.
