IT’s SOUPERBOWL TIME! – Thursday, April 6, 2017

Creekside's 19th annual Souperbowl is Thursday, April 6, 2017
3:30-6:30 at OVL
SouperBowl Tickets $25 per adult. (Students & staff are free) Purchase your tickets online.
Dinner of soup and salad will be provided
A little history…..The Souper Bowl is a longstanding tradition at Creekside. The founders of Creekside Charter school began this event 19 years ago. The idea was to bring Creekside students and the greater Tahoe community together by sharing soup. To foster environmental stewardship, have the kids actively involved and add some color, the kids painted their own ceramic bowls for use at the event. Not only do Creekside families attend, including student and staff families, but also various members of our greater community. It has also been a great time for perspective families to get an idea of what Creekside is about. Souperbowl also served as a showcase for the amazing PTO run enrichment program. The kids put on a musical performance practiced in music class and the décor is student artwork created in art class. For added fun, the teachers also surprise us with a musical number! Souperbowl was Creekside’s biggest fundariser in years past. This fundraiser grew over the years, raising less than $10,000 in the first few years, and growing to raise over $25,000 in the last 5 years. Last year, PTO transitioned to an adult fundraiser and the focus of Souperbowl changed to a community rather than a fundraising event. Souperbowl 2017 will be held Thursday, April 6 from 3:30 - 6:00. We are excited to provide a great meal, student performances, teacher performances, beautiful ceramic bowls, kids raffle, family basket raffle, and camaraderie. As always, each student in grades K - 8 will paint a bowl to be picked up at Souperbowl. Please send in a contribution of $10 per bowl for your child you paint. Every child will paint a bowl, but we ask that you please make this contribution to cover bowl and paint expense if you can. All School bowl painting day is Tuesday, March 7. Please send in your cash or check, along with this form, or pay online on or before Tuesday. If you have more than one child, please indicate name and amount on the form. Thank you!
