Dear Creekside Comet Families,

Happy Fall!  Having settled in to another busy school year, I hope you’ve noticed that your Comet Fund Board has been hard at work, preparing for another productive and rewarding year of fundraising for our school.  You’ve seen us at Registration, Back-to-School Night, and the Comet Chase.  In fact, you’re probably sick of hearing from us at this point… But, we want to provide you with an update about our recent successes as well as the challenges that remain.  

Let me start by thanking all of our Comet Families who took the time to participate in our Spring Parent Meeting.  Your participation, coupled with principal and teacher input, guided our budget process for the 2018-2019 school year.  The Comet Fund goal for 2018-2019 is $363,400.  This means that we need to raise at least $363,400 in order to maintain our existing staffing and program levels at Creekside.  Here are just a few programs we support:

Paraeducators – One reason we’re able to recruit and maintain great teachers is because of the additional staff support they receive from the Comet Fund. Your donations fully fund each of the paraeducators in our grade-level classrooms.

Classroom Supplies – This year your Comet Fund registration donation has allocated funds to each and every classroom for supplies so that each teacher would be able to fully fund classroom needs.  

Technology – Thanks to last year’s grant writing efforts that resulted in a very generous $2,500 grant from Safeway, and this year’s donations, the Comet Fund will be replacing our computers and other in-classroom devices, bringing us closer than ever to 1:1 ratio for all grades.

Library and Literacy Enrichment – Donations allow each classroom to borrow books from our library once a week and have our library open the whole school day every day of the week. Without donations, our library would only be open 2 days a week.  Note that we received a grant from Ross for $2,000 for classroom and library books.  

Vocal Music – You most likely hear your children singing songs and letting you know how much fun they are having preparing for the Winter Concert. Without the Comet Fund donations, this special vocal music program could not happen. The vocal music program at Creekside is an important element in a well-rounded education and your child’s life.  

Art Program – Without the Comet Fund and the PTA, there would be no art in school, it’s just that simple. Your donations FULLY fund Art in the classroom with the wonderfully artistic staff who runs this program through Comet Fund donations and supplies through the PTA.

Reading and Math Specialists – without donations, these teachers would not be able to help supplement your students understanding in the areas they may need  a little more time and attention in developing. We allocate 3 dedicated staff members each year to these specialties. 

We have the privilege of working with the most talented teachers and staff, as well as a tremendous volunteer force, loaded with passion and talent.  We’ve been putting that passion and talent to work to raise enough money to support these programs and our existing staffing, because we know that with your help and donations, every Creekside Comet benefits!  

Thanks to your generous support, corporate matching funds, grants, and the generous support of our year-long sponsors (Danville Pediatric Dentistry and Livermore Auto Mall), we have raised $292,605 to date.  When those donations are coupled with generous donations the Comet Fund received at the end of the 2017-2018 school year, we only need to raise $70,795 between now and February in order to fully fund our existing staffing and programming for the year.  

We need your help to make this a reality.  I’d like to encourage you to make a difference by helping us in any way you can. Here are a few easy ways to help:

  • Corporate Matching Funds
  • On-Line Auction Donations and Purchases
  • Comet Fund Dining Days  
  • Join the Comet Fund Board
  • Donate – it’s not too late!

From sending feedback, providing suggestions, sharing your talent or even taking on a volunteer role for a large event, your support is necessary to our mission and it is why Creekside is such a stand-out school.  Here you will find pertinent information regarding upcoming Comet Fund events, opportunities, news, an online donation link, and much more.  Let’s go above and beyond last years' success!

Thank you,
Aaron Tarzian                                              Dana Tsubota
