A Message From Our President

Welcome back to school!  Thank you to all the families that have donated to the Creekside Comet Fund so far this year!  Your donations help maintain the Gold Ribbon academic standards we’ve achieved for our school.  We are $129,522 closer to our goal of $315,000 as of the start of school.

 

You may have noticed that we increased the requested voluntary donation to the Comet Fund this year to $400 per student, and I’d like to take a moment to explain.  For the first 7 years, Creekside continued to increase enrollment but last year, with the opening of Bella Vista Elementary, we experienced a decrease in enrollment and this year we decreased further.  We are now projected to have 675 students from a high of 750 two years ago.  Our programs are based on the entire school and by grade level, not by the number of students.  As these costs go up our goals must increase to maintain the same level of programs and staff.  For example, our professional academic staff costs have increased 5% from 2016-2017 on top of an increase of 2% over the prior year, due to the annual step and column negotiated rates.  Last year we fell short of our goal by $35,000, causing us to cut some programs.

 

It actually takes $470 per student to maintain our current program levels but we continue to look elsewhere for additional funds.  For example, we are actively looking for grants and received $10,000 in grants last year.

I assure you this decision by the all volunteer Comet Fund Board was not taken lightly.  We reviewed the other elementary schools in the area and feel this is in line with the requests at the other schools.  Sycamore Elementary requests a voluntary donation of $400 and Tassajara Elementary requests $650 per student.

 

We know you have a choice where to invest your charitable donations and we hope you will choose to invest in your children.  The Creekside Comet Fund donates directly to Creekside and funds programs and staff that directly affect your child’s education and all the other Creekside children.  We fully fund the art and music programs which wouldn’t exist at Creekside, we fund additional library time, additional technology teaching, technology replacement, reading specialists, social-emotional learning, math technology programs, classroom teaching support, and more.

We also have volunteer opportunities if you would like to participate with our organization.  If you have questions please reach out to us at thecometfund@gmail.com.

 

If you haven’t had a chance to donate please do so today by going to ces.futurefundapp.com/store. We need your support to raise $315,000 to continue our tradition of Gold Ribbon Award winning success!  Donate for your child’s education today.  And if your company does a corporate match of your donation don’t forget to submit the paperwork.  Let us know if you need help with the process or to determine if your company does a match.  

 

Sincerely,

Carin Hubins, President
