Principal Update

CAMPUS NEWS
NO SCHOOL ON MONDAY
All RRISD school and offices will be closed on Monday, September 7th in observance of Labor Day.  We hope everyone has a restful long weekend.  We look forward to seeing our students back at school on Tuesday, September 8th.


BOX TOPS
Our annual Box Top Collection Competition starts next week (Sept. 8 - Oct. 2).  Classes compete to bring in the most Box Tops and win prizes! Also, don't forget that the HEB Box Tops special promotion is coming soon, Sept. 16 - Sept. 29. If you purchase 10 General Mills Box Top items you get a certificate for 60 bonus box tops. And... if you buy 15 box tops items, you get a certificate for 100 bonus box tops! Go to http://www.boxtops4education.com/participating-products to see the list of participating products to plan your purchases. Each child that brings in an HEB Bonus certificate of 60 or more will get a small prize. Thanks for making this such a fun and important fundraising opportunity for CCE! Contact Cory Vessa at vessacory@hotmail.com if you have any questions. Thanks you to our sponsors - Papa John's Pizza at Volente Plaza, Qualtech Automotive, Prima Pizza Pasta, Subway at Four Points and Ms. Doughnuts.

REMINDERS
PARENT VOLUNTEER BACKGROUND CHECK REQUIRED
Any person wishing to volunteer in RRISD is required to complete a Volunteer Application each school year.  Please click here to complete the online Volunteer application. We know the school year gets busy, so we encourage you to take care of this as soon as possible.  Once you fill out the application it will be good for the entire school year.  The online application takes less than five minutes to complete and will be processed within 48 hours.  It is important to use your legal name and click “Submit” in order for the application to be processed.  You will need to bring your photo id to campus to be verified and scanned, in order to complete the process.  


STAY IN THE KNOW
Communication with our parents is very important to us.  We want to ensure that our families stay informed of various campus events and showcase the great learning that takes place in our classrooms.  We will send “A Note from the Principal” each week via e-mail.  The note will include celebrations, campus news and important dates.  If other members of your family would like to receive these updates, please have them click on this link and sign up to receive e-News from Canyon Creek.  
Also, don’t forget to follow us on Facebook and Twitter!  Do you want to review information provided in previous “Notes from the Principal”?  Follow the Principal’s Blog.
