Moms’ Drive-thru at Chick-Fil-A 

Remember how much fun our Dad’s drive-thru at McDonald’s was this past fall? Well, now it’s time for our moms in honor of Mother’s Day. Join us anytime on Thursday May 6 at the Chick-fil-A in Carmel Mountain Ranch. Ollie Otter’s mom will be there too between 5-7 pm! A portion of the proceeds of any order placed through the Chick-fil-A app will come back to our school, so make sure you download that app! And speaking of app, next week is Teacher Appreciation Week, so if you want to show your ‘App-reciation’ for your teachers, treat them to a Chick-fil-A lunch on Thursday, May 6! Orders placed through the app can be picked up from the parking lot, inside the restaurant or you can choose to order at the drive-through and they will scan your app. 




Teacher Appreciation Week

Next week, May 3 to 7, is Teacher Appreciation Week. It’s our chance to show the Shoal Creek staff and teachers what superheroes they really have been this last year. Attached in the email you will find the weekly activity schedule of what’s happening on each day.



Spring Photo Opportunity

On Wednesday May 12 and Thursday May 13 Shoal Creek students will be offered a unique spring photo opportunity. In order to participate in this experience you will have to sign-up in advance. A sign-up form and further details will follow shortly.

An Update from Our Librarian, Mrs. Poole
Thank you to all of our students and families who have returned last year's library books or sent in reimbursement funds.  However, the library is still missing over 40 books that were checked out last spring and not returned.

E-mails have been sent to parents of students who have a missing book.  Your student is responsible for returning this book, replacing it with an identical copy, or sending in reimbursement for the cost of the book.  If you have received an email from the library about a missing book, please take the time to look for it, replace it, or reimburse the school. 

Please contact Mrs. Poole at spoole@powayusd.com if you have any questions. 

Thank you, families, for your help in keeping our library collection complete!

Following are some tips for locating a lost book.
