***Creekside families donate thousands at our Live Auction Saturday***

Dear Creekside Families:

This past Saturday evening I had the opportunity to participate in the Creekside Comet Educational Fund annual gala auction with many Creekside families. If you had the opportunity to be there, you too saw firsthand the generosity that exists in our school community. Every year that I attend the live auction, I am blown away by the altruism that exists in our community. I have never come across a group of people that are as caring and committed to education as this one is! These donations really go above and beyond what we receive from the state per pupil and allow us to provide a well-rounded balanced education for our students. You are truly an amazing community! Thank you for your support!

I also want to take this opportunity to thank some amazing volunteers that helped make this happen for our school. This includes Dana Patterson, Kathy Dimalanta, Rita McDonald, Nancy DiOrio, Dee Patton, Jenny Hong, Angela Beck, Amity Karim, Cristin Sanchez, Lynette Simmons, Sandra Stuart, Sana Sid,
Andy Noll, and Mimi Torres. Its also important to thank the Comet Fund Board for their leadership helping determine and managing our budget as well as countless other volunteers for all of their work organizing the auction! Without volunteers and amazing donors so committed to Creekside, we would NOT have been able to pull off this huge and very important Creekside fundraiser. 

Didn't get to attend the Live Auction but you still want to support our fundraising goal, our school, and your Comet, don't forget to check out the Online Auction that is going on this week (ends Thursday, 4/2 @ 9pm). 

Thank you for all of your donations! You make Creekside even more successful at educating each one of our students with each dollar you invest!

Fondly,
Aaron Tarzian, Principal

Comet Chase Exceeds Goals

The numbers are in for this year's Comet Chase and our students exceeded our funding goal by about $7,000. We have decided to push 100% of the excess directly back into our classrooms.  

Along with having a great time on October 3, Creekside students and staff ran 10,310 laps in a single day. At eight laps per mile, this means our students ran roughly 1,290 miles during the event. For comparison, this is the equivalent of:

  • Running 416 different 5k races
  • Running 50 marathons
  • 17 round trips into San Francisco
  • 3 1/2 round trips to South Lake Tahoe
  • Nearly 2 round trips to Disneyland
  • This is nearly 7 times further than the distance to the average low-level, orbiting satellite (200 miles)

We want to extend a special thank you to Kira Leahey and Jen Snyder for their continued leadership in coordinating this event. 

Thank you again for your tremendous support. It is our kids, families, volunteers and donors that allow us to continue to provide "Margin of Excellence" programs at Creekside.

The Comet Fund Board

THANK YOU to our Sponsors for the Event

We have a new COW

COW closed.jpegCOW open.jpeg
Creekside Elementary School and it's community has a very strong legacy of generosity. Earlier this fall, as a result of the tremendous support of our community, we were able to purchase a 4th COW (Computers On Wheels). Here are a few things that you may not have known about these tremendous resources: 

  1. This is the 4th COW that we have at our school
  2. This COW houses 30 MacBooks for use by teachers and students and will be primarily used by grades 1-3
  3. Each MacBook is powered by a 2.5GHz Intel i5 processor and a battery that provides up to 7 hours of wireless computing time
  4. Each COW is used for approximately 3 hours each day, adding over 450 hours per week or 1,700 hours per month of hands-on computer time for our students
  5. Each COW gives our students access to research tools and educational programs used to support Common Core and STEM educational initiatives

Hands on technology training is a critical part of preparing our students for the road ahead. These computers are only a piece of a larger technology curriculum that also includes access to reading programs such as "Accelerated Reader" and "RazKids," math tools such as iXL Math and "Type to Learn 4" which is a program to improve speed and accuracy of keyboard skills. Many thanks to Arnold DeGuzman and Tustin Ellison for their leadership of our technology program at Creekside. 

In addition to the purchase of this COW, the Comet Fund is working to develop a longer term technology plan to ensure that we remain at the forefront of technology in education. We can only do this with the continued support of our families. 

It is our commitment as the leadership of the Comet Fund to ensure that your contributions are spent where they will have the greatest impact for our school and for the education of our children.  

 

Thank you for your continued support. 

 

Sincerely, 

Comet Fund Board
