March 2017 Edition

Welcome back from Spring Break!

It's hard to believe we only have 9 more weeks of school.  We have had a fabulous school year and we are very excited as we enter the final chapter of the 2016-17 school year.

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.  The gym will not be finished until sometime in May.

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

Principal in the old building & new principal for the new building 

I will stay as the principal in the old Creekside building and LCS Board of Education will be hiring a new principal for the new building in the near future.

This new principal will serve as "Principal in waiting" until July 1, 2017.  At that time they will become the new principal in the new building and I will remain principal in the original CES building, which will become the "Creekside Primary" portion of campus.
