​Memo for Garden Creek Parents and Guardians


Good Monday afternoon to all our Creeker families,

We know it is a very busy time for everyone as we prepare for Christmas festivities and holidays. We will continue to work hard at school, even around the concert time as well as other extra activities J We appreciate your support in having your children at school by no later than 8:15 AM so that we can have start them off on their routines with their teachers.

Finally, our annual Creeker Christmas Concert is upon us! We are looking forward to performing for all our families and friends this coming Thursday at either 9 am or 12 pm!

Donations will be gratefully accepted at the door for the CBC Feed a Family Campaign!

Angel Tree Items – Thank you for your support with our Creekers Helping Creekers Angel Tree donations. These are due by this Thursday. Thank you!

12:40 bell for all back on – After discussions with our teachers, we are going back to the 12:40 bell for all students to come in at lunch.  As we had one class move to the portable, this has freed up bathroom time for washing hands etc. The little ones are also getting in and out faster thanks to the help of some of our student leaders . We will continue to ensure that students have enough time to eat lunch in a relaxed manner.

Sand on playground -  Due to icy conditions on the playground, a thorough dusting of sand has recently been applied. Hopefully this will make the playground much safer for students until we get some more snow.

Memo for Garden Creek Parents and Guardians


Good afternoon, Creeker Parents and Guardians,

As we jump into Term 2,  we would like to thank our families for your support this past fall.  We look forward to even greater growth in the coming months and a little fun along the way with holiday events.  Speaking of which.

Home and School  - Cashless is open again for parents who would like to order wreaths or poinsettias. Orders will be accepted until Monday!   Pick up is on Friday from 6-7:30 pm

Hot Lunch – We are trying to be more conscientious of being “green”. If possible, please send a fork and spoon with your child on hot lunch day so that we do not have to use plastic ones. Thank you for your support

Recycling – In the new year, we will have some months where parents can take on the Creeker recycling bin for their teacher’s class or school. All proceeds would go toward that class or cause. If this is something that you or a group of parents would be interested in doing ( as in sharing that month), please contact the office and we will let our Home and School Exec know.  

Fluoride – The fluoride program will get underway this coming Thursday. Our volunteers will have it ready to go for 8:30( ish!) for classrooms. Thank you, volunteers! This program is for grades 1-5. If you did not complete a form and would still like to do so, please let us know.

Christmas Bazaar– we had a wonderful Home and School Meeting last night and things are really coming together for another amazing Creeker Christmas Bazaar! Please spread the word to bring your family members next Saturday, December 1st from 11 – 1 pm!
