Cedar Creek Lake

Because Life is Better at the Lake

Community of Mabank shows Students Support

by

My name is Nicole Sprabary and I am a mom, first and foremost. I raise my children in the small community of Peeltown, Tx, about ten miles West of the closest point of the beautiful Cedar Creek lake. My aspirations are to contribute my writing abilities to a great cause in the future, in hopes that somewhere along the way, I will make a difference in this world.




This week Texas public school students in grades 3 through 8th as well as some in high school are taking the STAAR test required.


Reading, and math, writing, science, social studies are among the few subjects covered by the STAAR test and different for the students depending on the grade.


Many students and teachers alike, find themselves anxious around this time. One local couple, Garrett Havens and Abbey Williams, owners of the local business, Sign Gypsies of Cedar Creek Lake, held a contest last week.


The community was invited through their Facebook page, to vote on each person's favorite school around the Cedar Creek Lake area.


Winners would win a sign to encourage them for the days of STAAR testing.


After 269 comments including 166 shares, Mabank Intermediate won with a total of 43 votes. Coming in second, was Mabank Jr. High with 29 votes out of the total 211 votes that were commented on the post.


Not only did the school get the beautiful sign, the 5th grade class and teachers who participated in testing on Tuesday morning received breakfast from several well known local restaurants!


Grammie's Grub, Dickie's BBQ and Dairy Queen, all of Mabank, helped ensure these almost 350 students and teachers were well fed before such an important day.


Monetary funds were also given by The Mabank Police Department and in the name of the Tri-County Library located in Mabank off Market Street. Funds were sent to Grammie's Grub who graciously used it to make more breakfast meals.


Special shout out to all who were apart of making those kiddos feel a little bit extra special that day.


The Cedar Creek Lake Community really showed up and showed out this day for some of the most important members of our area.


The chalk on the sidewalk in front of the school with uplifting messages for the students was a nice touch as well!!!
