Dear Parents and Students:
I would like to thank all of the students and parents for such a smooth start to the school year. Everyone came back ready to learn and excited. Back to School Night was well attended and a great opportunity for you to meet your child’s teacher, see the classroom, and learn about the curriculum.
If you’re looking for additional ways to participate in the “goings on” at Clear Creek School, we have several opportunities. Our Parent Teacher Club meets in Room 8 on the first Monday of each month. This is a great opportunity to help with fundraising, school events, and meet some very motivated people! Our School Site Council meets on the fourth Tuesday of the month. This is a great place to learn more about the working of the school and budget issues. The Site Council oversees categorical funding and the Local Control Accountability Plan. Lastly, classroom help, whether at school or at home, is always appreciated by the teachers. Please see your child’s classroom teacher on ways you can help.

The library implemented a new cataloging and circulation system last year that makes searching for books and resources a lot easier. It is now a web based system that you may access from any computer, even from one at home. One feature that I absolutely love is found in the catalog and it is called Destiny Quest. From that page students can find out the titles of the newest books that have been added to our library. The website is clearcreek.follettdestiny.com. Click on the blue Clear Creek School link in the middle of the page to access the catalog.
Also, just as a reminder, you can find out if a book has an Accelerated Reader (AR) quiz by going to the AR Bookfind link found in the upper right hand corner of this website under the School Forms tab. You can search by title or author to see whether or not a book you have at home has an AR quiz. Also, under the School Forms tab, is a link to Home Connect which allows you to see your child’s AR progress. At this site you can also sign up to get an email every time your child takes an AR quiz! To log into Home Connect, use your child’s user and password for Accelerated Reader. If they can not remember what it is, you can ask their teacher, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Library schedule for 2017-2018 is as follows:
Mondays First Grade/Second Grade
Tuesdays Kindergarten, Sixth, and Fifth Grades
Wednesdays Second Grade/Third Grade
Thursdays Fourth, Seventh, and Eighth Grades
Please help your child remember to bring his/her library book(s) back on the appropriate day.
