Friday, January 18, is a HALF DAY of school for all elementary students.  School dismisses at 11:35 am.  School sack lunches, instead of a hot lunch, will be available from the kitchen for students.  This lunch will be recorded and charged against the student’s account (unless the student qualifies for the free lunch program).

There is NO SCHOOL on Monday, January 21.  It is a Teacher Professional Development day.


WILL YOU BE READY FOR ON-LINE REPORT CARD ACCESS?

Our first semester ends Friday, January 18th!   Last year, our schools moved to on-line report cards. Using our secure PowerSchool system, you are able to view, save, and print your student’s report cards once they are released. Our next report cards will be available after school on Wednesday, January 23, 2019. Using this method of delivery allows us to be more efficient with both our time and taxpayer resources.

If you don’t have a PowerSchool account, or if you have forgotten how to access the system, please call Jerri at 721-4410 for instructions and information.  Only parents/guardians are allowed to create accounts to access the private and confidential information contained in PowerSchool.  When you call our office you will be provided with a unique access number and instructions that will allow you to access only your child’s information.  Please call Jerri if you need a printed copy. 

January 23rd is coming soon! Give the system a try soon so that you will be ready to access report card information!

It's a CRAZY Day at Spring Creek!

Our Student Council has proclaimed

 on Friday, January 25th! 


Kindness Matters!

This year at Spring Creek we are all involved in a community “Kindness Challenge”. We are working to make Spring Creek Elementary and Laramie a better place by creating a community of connected individuals who value and promote giving, compassion, and kindness. The mission of a Kindness Challenge is to encourage individuals to perform Random Acts of Kindness to help make a positive difference in their community. We are excited to inspire, energize, and motivate our staff and students with our “Kindness Challenge”. Some of the benefits of the “Kindness Challenge” are: Teaching children to strive to make positive changes in their community; Reduce bullying and encourage support for other students; Demonstrate a commitment to your local community. Our Kindness Tree is growing daily and becoming a beautiful reminder that Random Acts of Kindness help us grow as a school and as a community.
