Holiday Laughter is Music to my Ears.... Bring it on!!

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

The weather cooperated for the Canyon Creek Elementary PTA "Holiday Fair!" Residents as well as students and their parents welcomed this much anticipated outdoor event, late Friday afternoon, the first week-end in December 2021! It was so good to see the smiles, hear the laughter and enjoy the smells of holiday treats.


Karen Ogle, Anna Thurin and Allie Knavel, welcomed the community at the entrance.


It was so good to see the fire trucks, an amazing bouncy house, The Cold Cookie Co. truck, so many craft and art booths, vendors selling cakes, cookies, bird houses, jewelry...great gift ideas for the holidays.


Mary Weir, the Art teacher at Canyon Creek Elementary, was front and center volunteering at the craft tables with an assortment of  Christmas craft ideas supplied by the PTA and the cake walk was a huge success!


Mary Workman (Administrative Associate), April Crawford (Principal), and Deidra Floyd (Assistant Principal) sang the praises of the Canyon Creek PTA who engineered this smashing success!

It’s that time of the year and so glad to see the community rally around our Canyon Creek Elementary School Holiday Fair!!

May your December be filled with peace, love and happiness.

Hello Dorie - there is something very special about the sounds of laughter heard from a school any day.  Like learning, it's a part of an ongoing education.
