Dear Spring Creek Families,
On Thursday, February 1st, we invite all families to attend our STEM Fair Family Night from 6:00 PM – 7:00 PM. This is an opportunity to come look at our student’s projects and look at booths from our local community organizations. Community booths will be providing STEAM themed swag bags while supplies last and will be performing science demonstrations for families. This is an amazing opportunity to see the great projects students have been working on for weeks.
We also hope you will go to our school’s website and sign up for a Parent Teacher Conference on February 7 and 8. You can come in person or request a Zoom meeting with your child’s teacher. This is a chance to meet with your child’s teacher and discuss how they are doing.
Thank you for your support and taking the time to check the weekly newsletter. We look forward to seeing you in the coming weeks.
Remember, Spring Creek Hawks don’t fly, they SOAR!
