April Edition

It's going to be a busy next few weeks at Creekside!  Thank you very much for all of your support as parents during the 2016-17 school year.  We still have several weeks of school left and we are looking forward to finishing the year on a positive note.

New School Update

As we near the completion of the new building for our campus we are becoming more and more excited.

The new building will become "Creekside Elementary" and will house grades 3, 4, and 5.

The old building will become "Creekside Primary" and will be the PreK, K, 1, and 2 building.

We hope to finish with the inside of the school in mid to late April or early May.

We are planning on moving in when everything is finished.  We will start moving all portable classrooms in first.
