Creekside Service Learning Enrichment: 6th-8th Grade
We’re really excited to offer this Service Learning Enrichment program to any 6th-8th grader this spring. We think it will be a great opportunity for our students to volunteer in a meaningful way, connect to their community and understand that they have the power to illuminate the world around them!
When: Fridays beginning after Spring Break, April 24th- May 30th @9-2 pm
Organizations: Bear League, Truckee Bike Park, FoRiver, Sierra Community House, Tahoe Institute of Science (TINS), US Forest Service, Humane Society
Parents welcome! Cost: $25 per student which will go towards costs for a Service Learning notebook that each student will receive at the beginning of the program. Notebook includes reading material, space for observations, as well as pre/post reflection.
Registration: If your child would like to participate, please register on the Creekside PTO website by MARCH 31st. In order for the program to have its biggest impact, it’s important that your child attend at least 5 out of the 6 days, so please keep that in mind when signing up!
Volunteers: We will need volunteers to make this happen! Please let Kathleen Ruffle know if you’re interested in helping out: email@example.com

Apres Creekside-Decemeber 20th at Auld Dubliner after school; PTO sponsored ornament making for kids.
Classroom Reps: Hows it going? Kim (who is a rep for 2nd grade) would like to do more to help. Classroom rep roles discussed. Job description depends on the teachers needs; Jeff to discuss with teacher on how to utilize the classroom reps. PTO Board members to join teachers on Friday 12/14 at 1045 to brainstorm ideas for ways to engage classroom reps. One way that was agreed upon was that the C.R. can be a liaison between the teachers and the PTO meetings.
Met with Placer County re: lot across from fire station for a more permanent location for Creekside= no go. Although Squaw is very motivated to keep Creekside in Squaw but no commitment was made for anything long term.
Annual Fundraising Gala date set on May 10th at Alpine Meadows. Theme to be Las Vegas (what happens at the Gala stays at the Gala). Committee meetings to start in January. Casino tables, couches, DJ, dancers for entertainment. Volunteer roles to be set and made more concrete than in years past. Tickets to be sold thru Event Brite, decision needs to be made for pricing, creation of banners, posters (list on poster what the fundraiser is specifically for) etc. Idea thrown out to put large auction items online so all can participate. Check with Spin to see if he has any input on how to do this.
