Spring Creek Elementary School

January 21, 2024

Dear Spring Creek Families,

In the coming weeks we will have several opportunities for you to come to the school and see all the great things happening with your students. The annual STEM Fair will be held Thursday, February 1 from 6:00-7:00 PM in the gym. The following week we will have Parent Teacher Conferences. Please sign up to meet with your child’s teacher! 

Finally, I want to let parents of students in upper grades and parents of students with social media accounts know that these social media platforms are not intended for children. We have been made aware of several anonymous Instagram accounts that unknown individuals are creating. These accounts are usually negative in content and create unnecessary stress and conflict between students. This conflict is sometimes carried over into the school and results in disrupted learning and has negative impacts on students. PLEASE talk to your child about the harmful effects of social media. Cell phones or smart watches or other devices are not allowed at school (inside or outside) including the school bus. We ask that students DO NOT bring these to school. There are phones in every classroom and in the office that students are allowed to use when needed. I appreciate your help and support with this.

I hope to see you in the coming weeks at the school. 

Sincerely,

Mrs. Snow, Principal
