Hello Creekside Families ~
We are looking forward to seeing the return of our Otters!
Next Tuesday will be a perfect opportunity to "Meet & Greet" your child's new teachers and classmates, and to drop off school supplies. Please see our school supply list on our website for the items that will be required. Our PTSA is also offering school supplies through www.schooltoolbox.com. Some supplies are grade level specific and purchased by the school in bulk, with the school transferring these fees to the families. These and other required fees should be paid through the “pay online system.”
INTERESTED IN VOLUNTEERING In the Creekside Library?
If you enjoy working with students and have time during the school day to come in and help, we would love to have you join us as a library volunteer this school year! The weekly volunteer shifts are one hour long. Swing by the library before or after Meet the Teacher (next Tuesday morning) to sign up as a library volunteer.
Volunteer Trainings - Required for all new volunteers - Will take place on Curriculum Night/s
Kindergarten parents Thursday 9/5 6:30 – 7:15 pm
1st & 2nd grade parents Wednesday 9/11 5:45 – 6:30 pm
3rd, 4th & 5th grade parents Wednesday 9/11 7:00 – 7:45 pm
** Volunteers must complete a new volunteer background clearance each school year and have it approved by the district before their first volunteer shift. Please visit: https://issaquahvolunteers.hrmplus.net/ to complete the process. Tip: At the end of the application, it will ask you to scan your driver’s license. If you do not have a scanner, you can take a picture of your driver’s license with your phone and add it electronically to the system. Thank you for considering volunteering in the library. The students always enjoy having parent volunteers during their library time each week!
