Dear Spring Creek Parents,

Thank you students, parents and Mrs. Kempter for an amazing STEM FAIR this year! I’m so impressed with the hard work and dedication of our students. Congratulations to our winners!

We are excited to meet with all of you this week for Parent Teacher Conferences. Please sign up for an appointment with your child’s teacher. You can meet with them in person or via Zoom. If you haven’t already, please go to the school’s website and make an appointment.

On Tuesday and Wednesday, students can shop from 8:15 am-4:00 pm. The Book Fair will be open on Thursday from 8:15 am-7:00 pm. There are also opportunities for parents to volunteer.

I hope to see you this week, Principal Snow

Parent Teacher Conferences

This year we have set a goal of having 100% attendance for our Parent Teacher Conferences! Teachers are eager to speak with you about your students, their academic accomplishments and growth, as well as how we can continue to work in partnership in helping your students succeed. Parent Teacher Conferences will be held February 1-2, 2023. Please help us reach this goal by scheduling and attending a Parent Teacher Conference. 

Signups will be on our website or call the school office and they can help you sign up. For your convenience, you can select to meet in person with your child’s teacher or via Zoom.


Thank you everyone who came out and supported the STEM Fair this week! We are so excited to carry this tradition each year. We hope students will be excited to participate again next year! 

Family Reads

Parents, just a reminder that effective now, instead of each family being able to request a free book, we are opening it up to each student! We hope this change will help build your family library at home and encourage reading at home together as a family. Please be sure to submit a request for your free book on our Family Reads form!

If you have any questions, please email Mrs. Blair. (

WIDA Testing

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 support 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 or Michelle Blair 

6th Grade UVU PREP Registration

UVU Prep is an amazing program for graduating 6th grade students that is offered during the summer. It is a free 6 week program that challenges high-achieving students who have shown an interest in STEM. See attached flyer. The application can be found on the UVU PREP Program Website.

The deadline to apply for UVU Prep is January 31, 2023. If this is something you would like your student to participate in, you are invited to do so.

5th Grade Camp Big Springs

Each summer Provo City School District, in conjunction with Provo City Parks and Recreation, provides an Outdoor Education (summer STEM camp) Program. This is a co-curricular program that is an extension of the current fifth grade STEM curriculum. Students just finishing fifth grade are invited to participate and will spend five days at a camp located up the South Fork of Provo Canyon where they will be involved in activities such as hands-on science experiences, arts & crafts, sports & recreation and campfire programs. See attached flyer for more information.
