Eagle Families, It’s hard to begin writing after all the devastation that we all endured and/or witnessed over the last week. It was one of the worst disasters to ever hit our country and yet, it was also one of the most uplifting experiences we have ever witnessed as well. When you see neighbors helping neighbors, strangers sacrificing their safety for the safety of others, it truly is a beautiful sight. It will be a long road as our community begins to recover and heal, and the needs will be plentiful and ongoing. There have been both Eagle staff and Eagle families that have been impacted by the storm and need our help, along with many other staff and families within CCISD. The CCCC (Clear Creek Community Council) of PTA’s are going to partner with each of the campuses and adopt their school to help with some of those needs. We have decided the best way to do this is to gather gift card donations from our community and get them to those in need within our own school family. We are asking for gift cards to places such as HEB, Kroger, Wal-Mart, etc. to help meet some of their basic needs. If you would like to donate any gift cards, you may either contact me directly at L.johnson11@gmail.com or you may drop them off at our campus starting September 7th when the staff reports back to school. This is a small but tangible way we can begin to help our community recover. Please know if you wish to donate directly to CCISD you may still do that through CCISD Cares @ www.ccisd.net/ccisdcares. Lastly, please note that Texas PTA is donating 100% of your local membership dues from now through September 30th if you join the Statewide PTA. Go to www.joinpta.org and select Statewide PTA for the district and the only option would be Lone Star Statewide PTA. We would also love for you to join our local PTA as well to help support our mission of supporting our students, staff and community at our campus. Just choose Clear Creek District and then choose CLIS. Thank you so much and we look forward to working alongside each and every one of you to ensure we have a great year at CLIS. Go Eagles!
