CCISD Parent Survey:  It is that time of year again when CCISD would like to know your opinion!  Please complete the CCISD Parent Climate Survey at the following link:

(English): https://tinyurl.com/mb9fylw

(Spanish): https://tinyurl.com/kqk5oyf

The survey is very important because it lets us know your opinion and how we can serve you and our students better. Please complete the survey by THIS Friday, April 21, 2017.


Water Challenge:  The UNICEF club is urging everyone to participate in our Water Challenge Fundraiser! All donation proceedings will be used to fund a new water project in Burkina Faso, Kenya, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, Rwanda or Uganda, and then The Water Project will post pictures and GPS coordinates of the project you helped build! Starting this week until the end of April, there will be 4 large water jugs placed in the front office, each pertaining to the different grade levels. You can drop off your change to help those in need!  The grade level that has the most amount of money at the end wins; but there’s a twist! You can “bomb” the other classes by putting paper currency in their jug. The amount of paper currency will then be subtracted from their coin total. The prize? Your grade level will get to completely drench teachers of their choosing with water balloons! So, set your sites on a target, and donate!

Come to the BQR on Tuesdays and Wednesdays to get immediate help, schedule an after school tutoring session (held in a high school teacher's classroom), or to find out more about secrets of success at Horizons.

Late Bus:  Clear Horizons provides a late bus that runs every Tuesday and Thursday at 4:45 PM.  The late bus will be in front of our school by 4:45 p.m. each Tuesday and Thursday and typically departs within 10 minutes. The late bus will drop off in two locations: The East side of 45 at Clear Creek High School and on the West side of 45 at Brookside Intermediate. Students who are planning on riding the late bus must request a pass from the office. The request must be made for official business only (ie tutorials, a rehearsal, detention, etc.). A bus pass must be picked up before 1:00 p.m. on the day you want to ride (Tuesday or Thursday). No bus passes will be issued after lunch.  If you do not have a pass you will not be allowed to ride the bus.  If no one has picked up a late bus pass, the bus will be cancelled. Students, make sure that your parent/guardian knows that you are staying late and catching the late bus. The front office closes at 4:00 p.m.  When signing up for pass students must include the following:

1) Purpose – Why are you staying late?

2) Location from 3:30 – 5:00 – Where will you be?

3) Parent Permission – Did you let your parent know you were staying late?

The reason we must have this information is so that we can find you in case of an emergency.
