Ms. Berry and the CHS FCCLA Crew

The Creekside High School FCCLA brought some of that #creeksidepride to the State Competition at the University of Georgia’s Classic Center in Athens, Georgia.

The CHS Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) Organization sent 24 students, the most by any high school at the competition, to compete for top honors and the chance to advance to the FCCLA National Competition.

The CHS FCCLA members competed in categories that included Applied Technology; Chapter Service Manual; Chapter Service Display; Entrepreneurship; Hospitality, Tourism and Recreation; Life Event Planning; and Nutrition and Wellness.

The Creekside Community congratulates Ms. Berry, the FCCLA sponsor, and all our FCCLA members on a job well done. This is just another great example of Creekside High School students showing that #creeksidepride!

PS: A special shout-out to the FCCLA parent chaperones; Mrs. Berry, Mrs. Thorton-Sanford, and Mrs. Stanley – thanks for helping us spread #creeksidepride all the way to Athens.

Creekside Students Participate in FCS Read-In

Ed Curney reads to Oakley Elementary first graders.

Several Creekside High School students participated in a Read-In at Oakley Elementary School, serving the Creekside community.

Students from the Creekside Seminole Football Program, Beta Club and the CHS Literacy Center visited with students at Oakley and read books with them. Creekside High School was very happy to be invited over to Oakley to participate in this wonderful event – and we look forward to participating again soon.

Our Creekside High School students were very well received not just by the Oakley students, but also by the Oakley staff as well.

Thank you so much for working to bring your students to Oakley! They were all well received. They added an inspiring youthful mentoring element to our day, which included several parents and grandparents. Each student received a certificate to show our appreciation of their service.

I hope we can do it again! It was an uplifting experience for everyone.

Honoring Rosa Parks

IMG_20130217_131554Did you know? This year marks what would have been the 100th birthday of Rosa Parks – a woman who took a seat to stand for justice for all.

Creekside High School student, Hakeem Clark was well aware of this milestone. Hakeem was invited to be part of a production that took place at the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church celebrating Ms. Parks’ birthday. Hakeem recited the poem “I Too, Sing America” by Langston Hughes.

Congratulations to Hakeem on this honor and for representing that Creekside Pride out in the community.

“I Too, Sing America” by Langston Hughes

I, too, sing America.

I am the darker brother.
They send me to eat in the kitchen
When company comes,
But I laugh,
And eat well,
And grow strong.

Tomorrow,
I’ll be at the table
When company comes.
Nobody’ll dare
Say to me,
“Eat in the kitchen,”
Then.

Besides,
They’ll see how beautiful I am
And be ashamed —

I, too, am America.

Our PTA Loves Creekside Teachers!

cupcake4The faculty and staff at Creekside High School certainly felt the love from their Parent Teacher Organization on Feb 14, 2013 – Valentine’s Day.

The Creekside PTA held a Valentine’s Day Cupcake Bar for the faculty and staff of CHS. The PTA has recently been reorganized and is helping to demonstrate Creekside PRIDE at school and in the community.

The CHS faculty and staff wanted to thank the PTA for this wonderful holiday treat.

You can find out more information about the PTA by attending their next meeting. We welcome parents and community members to come out and support their effort. Creekside High School is your school. We all have the responsibility to help demonstrate that Creekside PRIDE.

Creekside High School Gives Back

Can DriveLast Friday, Creekside High School students participated with many others in the Metro Atlanta area to give back through the 11Alive Can-a-Thon. Creekside High School collected cans through grade levels for the past few weeks and we had a tremendous response from our student body.

Creekside students joined many other community members at Turner Field to pack Publix trucks with the canned goods that will be distrubuted throughtout the Atlanta area. We are so proud of the efforts of our students and the many faculty members that assisted in the organizational efforts. This is just another example of our Creekside High School students pulling together for a great cause. The 11 Alive Can-a-Thon helped to bring in over 200,000 canned goods during this years can drive, and we are very proud to say that the Creekside community was a part of it.
