Get your glow sticks ready! It’s almost time for the most exciting student event of the year – CREEKFEST!  Not only is Creekfest a very special day for our Cougars, but it is also our largest and final fundraiser of the school year.

      We are so excited for our Color Run and evening carnival celebration with families this year. We will have an online silent auction  and raffle off amazing prizes to help raise funds for the school to pay for playground upgrades, field trips, facility improvements, educational software, books and much more. 

 

We sincerely appreciate every donation made to support our school!

Parent volunteers are ever-present at CFES, dedicating their time and efforts to make sure our students' learning environment is one where they are able to thrive. You make our school amazing, and we are so thankful for you!

 

To volunteer at CFES, complete an online volunteer form with TISD.  A new form must be completed annually. Access the form here: TISD Volunteers
  
Please note: completing the forms above does not commit you to any volunteer opportunity. It simply allows you to remain informed when opportunities arise and prepare you to act on those opportunities as you so desire. Furthermore, while you do not have to be a PTO member to volunteer, signups and notifications are managed through our online system, so volunteer participation requires you to set up on an online account (there is no cost associated with setting up a volunteer account).
 
If you have any questions about volunteer opportunities, contact volunteer@cfespto.org.

Teacher Support

 

Every Friday from 1:30-3:30

 

Simply stop by the activity room at school (no signup needed) and give our teachers a hand with one of the many projects they need to complete for our kids. Tasks are often very simple but time-consuming for one teacher, such as cutting or assembling packets. We welcome any time you have to give - even twenty minutes on your way home from errands helps.
