Spring Creek Elementary School

February 18, 2024

Dear Spring Creek Families,

At this time of year I want to take the opportunity to remind parents and students of our social emotional goals that we have as a school. All year, students have been learning about the concepts of self-efficacy and self-management in weekly lessons. Self-management is defined as “how well students can manage their emotions, thoughts and behaviors in different situations.” The concept of self-efficacy is defined as “how much students feel they succeed in achieving academic outcomes.” Each week teachers and students learn, discuss and collaborate with each other on what this looks like and then apply it in the classroom. For example, it could be a younger student learning to use their words to express frustration. For an older student, it might look like a student sticking with a difficult assignment or completing homework because they know it will help them be a better learner. I hope you can think of ways you might help your student practice these skills at home. We believe students can do hard things and succeed!

Finally, as a reminder there is no school on Monday, February 19 in honor of President’s Day. 

Spring Creek Hawks don’t fly, they SOAR!

Ruth Ann Snow, Principal

This group of Fifth Graders did excellent at the District STEM Fair and will now compete at the State Competition on March 19th!

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

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!”

Please sign up here to pick a door.

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
