Dear Spring Creek Families,
We have a few exciting opportunities to see all the amazing things Spring Creek students have been learning. On Thursday, January 26, we will have our STEM Fair. This evening event will showcase students in grades K-6 STEM projects. The first week of February, we will have Parent Teacher Conferences. Our school goal is to have 100% attendance at these conferences. Teachers are eager to share the growth and progress students have made and discuss ways that you can continue to support your child’s education to end the school year strong.
The newsletter is full of important information and optional activities for your students–Preschool Registration and 5th Grade Camp Big Springs–just to name a few.
We hope to see you soon! Mrs. Snow, Principal

Our ELL students will be taking the WIDA ACCESS test the first part of February. 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 email@example.com or Michelle Blair firstname.lastname@example.org.
