Students may still use their accounts, but must have sufficient funds to purchase their meal. Payments can be made through the online payment system www.myschoolbucks.com or through your cafeteria manager. If a student does not have sufficient funds for their meal they may be offered an alternative meal (cheese sandwich and milk) and have .80 added to their meal fund balance.

Volunteer Breakfast

On Friday, May 15, Forest Creek Elementary honored the many Volunteers  that come to our school throughout the year.  The breakfast incorporated Mother Teresa’s quote, ““It is not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.” Students made bookmarks out of colored paper clips and heart-shaped jewels.  They also decorated tiny thank you cards to clip the bookmarks on.  We recognized our Partner’s In Education Student of the Year Caeden Owens, our Mentor of the Year Jason Maurer, our business Partner of the Year Wildflower Orthodontics, and our Volunteer of the Year Letty Torres.  These wonderful people will also be recognized on May 28th at the District Partner’s In Education Breakfast.  Thank you to all for your help and hard work!  Forest Creek Elementary is better because of you!
