Dear Spring Creek Families,
This week is Parent Teacher Conferences! We hope you have had a chance to go to our school website and sign up for an appointment with your child’s teacher. There is still time to make an appointment. We hope to have 100% attendance this week. The middle of the school year is a crucial time for parents and teachers to meet and discuss student progress and where your child is in their individual learning and growth.
Due to Parent Teacher Conferences, we will have early release days on Wednesday and Thursday at 1:30 p.m. Please plan accordingly for this modified schedule.
A huge thank you to Mrs. Kempter our STEM Coordinator, our STEM Fair participants, judges and parents for all of your support this year. It is exciting to see student’s critical thinking skills, ingenuity and curiosity come to life. It is a commitment to participate and I hope each student feels a sense of accomplishment.
We look forward to seeing you this week!
Spring Creek Hawks don’t just fly, they SOAR!
