Principal Update

Canyon Creek Families,

On behalf of the staff at Canyon Creek Elementary, I am happy to welcome you to the 2015-2016 school year!  We hope you and your family have had a great summer.  I anticipate an exciting year as we work together to help our students reach their highest potential and foster a love for learning.  I feel so fortunate to work with such an amazing group of educators, students and families.  We are ready for our Comets to return and fill the halls with excitement.  The school is way too quiet this time of year.  Please mark your calendar for the back-to-school events listed below.  

Thursday, August 20th 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 and introduce themselves.  This is one of my favorite traditions 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 the school office at 512-428-2800 to 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 20th 4:00 - 6:00 p.m. SCHOOL SUPPLY PICK UP
If you pre-ordered your school supplies through our PTA, please stop by the school to pick them up.  We will use the same process as last year, which is a drive-through model.  Simply pull into the driveway off of Boulder Ln., stop in front of the portable buildings, a volunteer will greet you at your car, then retrieve your supplies for you.  You never even have to leave your car! Now, that is service!  

Friday, August 21st PTA BACK TO SCHOOL FLING
The PTA is hosting its Back to School 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, and much more!  We are adjusting the times this year to offer a special service to our incoming Kindergarten families and new families to CCE.  

7:30 - 8:00 a.m. The cafeteria will be open ONLY to incoming Kindergarten families and
new students/families during this thirty minute window.  

8:00 - 10:30 a.m. The cafeteria will be open to all CCE families.

Friday, August 21st 8:00 - 9:15 a.m. SCHOOL 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 24th 7:45 - 8:30 a.m. KINDERGARTEN PARENT ORIENTATION
Calling all Kindergarten parents!  Come to the Canyon Creek Library to visit with the Kindergarten teachers.  They will provide helpful information, answer questions you have and make sure you and your Kindergartener are prepared for the first day of school.  

Tuesday, August 25th 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 to be settled in their classrooms 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.  Thank you for letting us be a part of your lives and trusting us with the education of your child.

Jenny Kasson
