CREEKFEST - MARCH 1st, 2019
Plans for our most exciting annual family event are underway! Creekfest consists of a morning fun run and an evening festival, where we celebrate with dinner, sweet treats, a silent auction, raffle, and loads of entertainment! It's also our most impactful fundraiser, equipping CFES with the means to provide our students with a robust learning atmosphere and a competitive advantage.
We are excited to announce that this year's Creekfest Fun Run shirts will serve a dual purpose: we have worked with Coach Baxter to coordinate the colors of the shirts with our CFES Field Day colors, so your student can wear the shirt for both events! Shirts will go on sale next week!
1/10 - 1/25: Grade Level Auction Baskets Donations Collected
1/21 - 2/1: T-Shirt Orders
2/8 - 2/19: Food & Raffle Pre-sale
2/19: Run the Creek Kickoff

To volunteer at CFES, there are two steps you need to take:
1: Complete an online volunteer form with TISD. A new form must be completed annually. Access the form here: TISD Volunteers
2: Complete the CFES PTO volunteer form. Access the form here: CFES Volunteer Interests
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 an online account (there is no cost associated with setting up a volunteer account).
