News From The Creek: 10/9/2020


Below, I have provided information highlighting several items.


Student Household Surveys:

Please assist HCPS planning for the second nine weeks of school by completing it by Sunday, Oct. 11. While responses are not considered “binding” at this time, please carefully consider your answers, as HCPS will rely greatly on this information for planning purposes.

A message from the Cougar Library:

Hello, Cougar Families! We have a few library-related announcements for you. Please contact Mrs. Wright, HCMS librarian, with any questions.


  • Did you know that HCMS has over 700 overdue library books from last school year? Please check for books. You may return books from any HCPS school to the bin by the main entrance or to the bin by the bus loop from 7:45 AM to 3:45 PM on school days. Email Mrs. Fitzpatrick, library assistant, if you are unsure whether your student has overdue books.


  • Did you know that you can still check out library books? Visit the Virtual Library Learning Commons and fill out the BOOKHUB form. You can use this form whether you know exactly what book you want or you need some help picking something out.


  • We will be offering MakerHub at Home Kits for pickup! Materials include paracord, mask-dying supplies, paint-by-sticker pictures, key chains, paper circuit kits, jewelry-making supplies, blank flipbooks, duct tape, and more. Please fill out this form if you would like to receive a MakerHub at Home Kit.


  • Please support our library through the Box Tops for Education Program. Box Tops has gone digital! Simply download the Box Tops app and scan your receipts. They also have an option to email receipts if you’re using grocery pickup or delivery services.



Have a great weekend!!!
