Friends of Creekside
A huge THANK YOU
goes out to all of our families who donated to Friends ofCreekside this year! We truly appreciate your support!
Dear Creekside Forest Elementary School Family:
Welcome back to school! We hope that everyone had a wonderful summer and is now ready for another fantastic year of school. We are extremely fortunate to have such an outstanding school with dedicated faculty, staff, and administration. They are providing our children with the strong foundations needed to grow, but they cannot do it alone. We, as parents, need to bridge the financial gap between the school’s budget and all that we want our school to be.
Thanks to the unbelievable generosity of parents’ contributions last year, we were able to purchase new playground equipment and paint numerous murals in the library, creating a fun and inviting environment that will further encourage our children’s love for reading. We were also able to launch our scholarship program for two high school seniors who were alumni of CFES and a STEM program for the school. Each year the PTO is able to provide recurring items such as UIL sponsorships, teacher appreciation, snacks for STAAR testing, and supplies for science, math, art, music and P.E. It is because of your charitable contributions that our students are able to continue to enjoy activities such as Field Day, Cookies with Santa, Red Ribbon Week, Anti-Bullying campaign, student enrichment assemblies, field trips, new technology and the literacy library.
And so we humbly ask you to please contribute generously to the 2017-2018 Friends of Creekside campaign. Unlike other fundraising programs, where the school only sees a small percentage of the donation you make, 100% of your tax deductible gift will go to our school. In addition to the wonderful gift you are giving to our school, the students have two opportunities to receive rewards. The grade that raises the most money will receive a shaved-ice party, and if the entire school reaches our goal of $25,000 we will have an exciting school-wide dance party. The campaign will run September 25th through October 6th, 2017.
No gift is ever too small!! Help ensure that your child comes to school every day in the best environment possible. Together we can make the difference in our children’s lives. Thank you for helping CFES go to all the places they will go!!
