Dear Parents and guardians,
It is with great enthusiasm that I welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year! We, the staff and I, are here to ensure that we provide the best possible education that we can give to your child. This year, Creekside will help prepare students for mastery of Common Core State Standards. Use of technology is of extreme importance to ensure that we are preparing your child with the needed 21st century skills to be successful in life.
However, all of these pieces will not be as effective without your support. Please ensure that you are supporting our efforts by ensuring that your child attends school, on time, every day. Completion of his/her homework every night, maintaining regular contact with teachers and attending all parent meetings. You are such an integral piece to the success of your child and we would like for you to be an active participant in his/her educational career.
Here at Creekside, we also aspire to develop strong character traits. Keeping with that goal, we have developed the school-wide theme of being a “Bucket Filler”. As a bucket filler we will be encouraging students to become: good citizens, trustworthy, caring, fair, responsible and respectful. These efforts will help to build students with strong character. Please take the time to “fill your child’s bucket” by saying encouraging comments and acknowledging all of the positives that they do inside and outside of school.
As I stated earlier, welcome to the 17/18 school year and I am thrilled to be serving as your Principal. I am looking forward to a wonderful year!
