A Message to Parents and Caregivers:

The 2021- 2022 school year is now in full swing as we will soon start the second 9 weeks. Thank you for your support and understanding as we started the school year with some continued challenges brought on by the pandemic. We have all learned different ways to adjust and find creative ways to deal with the frustrations, disappointments, new ways of doing things.

The outpouring of support for our recent Fall Food Drive was amazing. Thank you again for the generosity and kindness of all the donations. All food donations went to support the food pantry at the First Baptist Church Creedmoor. The food pantry can assist individuals/families every other month. The hours of operation are on the first and third Wednesdays of every other month from 9:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.

Character Education Corner

Our school motto highlights an overview of our Character Education Program at Mt. Energy. Each month we highlight a different character trait. This month, our character trait is Integrity - doing the right thing even when no one is looking.
This is our third year of using The Positivity Project curriculum to start each day. Please click on the red bar below to learn more about this curriculum and activities your family can do at home.

Unity Day

October is Bully Prevention Month and students will have a classroom guidance lesson on how to treat others with kindness and respect. On Wednesday, October 20th, we will participate in Unity Day. On this day, we encourage everyone to wear the color ORANGE to raise awareness, hope and support against bullying. We are planning a "Unity Walk" around our school building to unite against bullying. The Unity Walk symbolizes how we can come together for kindness, acceptance, and inclusion. For more information on the history of Unity Day and its impact, please go to

Red Ribbon Week

October 25th - 29th is Red Ribbon Week -- the oldest and largest drug and alcohol campaign in the country. It is a time when communities, schools, and individuals take a stand to live drug and alcohol free lives with the goal of helping to create a drug and alcohol free America. The national theme this year is "Drug Free Looks Like Me."
We will have a coloring/poster contest during Art classes and dress up days. Please click on the red bar below for the dress up themes if your child would like to participate each day.
