This week has really shown what a strong community we have at the Creek. We have come together to support each other in heartbreak and opened our hearts to our community.
Words cannot express how much I appreciate being part of this special community. Thank you and your family for all you do to support our students. Thank you to our staff members for dedicating their lives to our students and families. We are grateful for all of you.
If you have any questions, please contact any board member. We look forward to talking with you.

The Positivity Project: Supporting OtherS when they Struggle
Wow! What a Book Fair!
A BIG SHOUT OUT to Book Fair chair, Kristen Sherman, for organizing the the Fall book fair. It is a HUGE undertaking, where you essentially put your life on hold for the entire week as you help students, staff, and families get the books they want. Kristen, we thank you so much for your hard work and dedication in getting books in the hands of our students.
Also, thank you to all the volunteers who helped through the week, whether during preview or sales days. I know that Kristen greatly appreciates YOUR help and we couldn't have a successful book fair without you!
If it's raining, the Run Club will be moved to the gym.
