 • May 11th - Open House BBQ – Lots of help needed to prep, cook and serve.
 • June 7th - Cougarpawlooza – 30 volunteers needed to cover all areas, lunch provided for volunteers!

Need an activity to do over Spring Break? Take a tour of the Rood Center and hunt for Clear Creek students’ art that is on display.

Silver Graphics orders are due to arrive this month, thank you all for ordering. You can still order online just cover the shipping costs. Mixed Bags orders are due soon please consider supporting Clear Creek PTC with an order. 

If catalogue purchases and candy orders are not your favorite way to support student programs PTC understands. Sign up for Benefit Mobile app and start supporting Clear Creek with everyday purchases. Benefit Mobile adds up quickly, earning $250 to $500 for Clear Creek every year without it costing you anything. Just log onto the Benefit Mobile app and use a store gift card rather than your ATM card to purchase items. Contact Suzy Rogers to learn more.

PTC is excited to welcome everyone back to a new school year here at Clear Creek School. PTC is open to all parents and teachers and we’ve already begun the planning and budgeting for an event-full year. Come join us on Monday, Sept. 12th to learn how you can help out at Walk-a-thon, Fall Festival and more events.

Donate Here


 The budget needed to cover Library, Music, Reading, Teacher Funds, Art and Cougarpawlooza will be close to $25,000 just as it has been in recent years. The Walk-a-thon is key to meeting budget needs and will be held on Oct. 3rd first thing in the morning. There will be music, snacks, prizes and fun for the students and volunteers. We ask that parents help the students to get pledges and help encourage our walkers/runners on the big day by volunteering. Check out the PTC tab on the school web site for PTC minutes, fundraising opportunities and PTC reminders.


 During September, be on the watch for Friday morning’s Farm to School program featuring fresh fruits and veggies for purchase by donation. Bring your garden extras and help this program feed everyone with healthy choices. Fridays are fun as hot chocolate and coffee will be served at our famous Cougar Coffee Café, a la cart with home baked goodies by 8th graders as the weather turns to fall.


 The annual Student Directory will be published and distributed in September. There is still room and need for business advertisements to off-set the printing cost of the booklet. Send in a business card and payment by September 9th and your ad will be printed in color for easy reference. It is a win/win for all.
