Spring Creek Elementary School

February 11, 2024

Dear Spring Creek Families,

Thank you for your amazing support of Parent Teacher Conferences last week! It was wonderful to connect with many of you and hear about the great progress your children are making. I’m grateful for our teachers and the extra hours they put in preparing for these conferences. A shout out to our PTA for the delicious meal they provided for all of the teachers and staff on Thursday evening. 

I wanted to share a couple of reminders for parents. Please review below the following protocols–this will help things run smoothly in the office.

  1. Parents or guardians who come to the school must bring a driver’s license or picture ID to enter the school. This ensures a smooth check-in process and it is required to enter the school.
  2. If your student has a birthday, you are welcome to drop-off treats that are store bought. Items should be individually wrapped. For example, cupcakes should be individually placed in a small sandwich bag prior to being dropped off.

Thank you for your help and support! I hope you will review the upcoming calendar items and other important information.

Spring Creek Hawks don’t just fly, they SOAR!

Ruth Ann Snow, Principal

WIDA Testing

Our ML (multilingual) students will be taking the WIDA ACCESS test over the next 2 weeks. This test measures students’ academic English usage in reading, writing, speaking, and listening. The test scores will be used to determine supports for academic English development and to show academic English progress. Please be sure your child is here at school everyday, gets a good night’s rest, and eats breakfast so they are prepared to do their very best on the test. If you have any questions regarding this testing, please contact Ruth Ann Snow  ruthann@provo.edu or Michelle Blair  michellebl@provo.edu.

PTA

Thank you to everyone who helped with the Book Fair and feeding the teachers during Parent Teacher Conferences! 

As we prep for Staff Appreciation Week, we are having people sign up to decorate classroom doors. This year’s theme is “Our Staff is Amazing: Read All About It!”

We provide the butcher paper for you to decorate the door.

To get your paper contact Nicole Hill at 385-450-6833 or  Nicole.hill628@outlook.com 

We have a PTA meeting this week! Friday the 16th at 10am in room 201! We’ll be discussing staff appreciation and we’d love to hear your ideas!
