June/Summer Newsletter: 6-4-23
Dear Boulder Creek Families,
As we bring 2022-2023 to a close, I want to thank you on behalf of all of us at Boulder Creek for the opportunity to work with your children. Watching your children grow socially, emotionally, and academically and knowing we have a part in that growth is amazingly fulfilling to us educators. It's what brings us back year after year. Maintaining a partnership with our parents ensures your child's success.
So here we are, summertime. It's that time of the year when you are without us for a few months enjoying family and summer fun. Research has shown that learning is lost over the summer months if it's not flexed like a muscle. Even though we won't be with you, we want to help you while you encourage your child to flex their learning muscles over the summer months. Please take a look at some amazing information and resources in this last newsletter to painlessly assist you in preventing the "summer slide" and ensuring your child walks into 2023-2024 ready for the challenges of his/her new grade level!
Have a wonderful summer, and we look forward to seeing you all in August!
All my best,
Turn the SUMMER SLIDE into the SUMMER CLIMB.

PARENT PORTAL LOG-IN
All parents, including new parents, should have logged into the Parent Portal at some point already. Why do you need to create a parent account? This is a secure platform through which you will view your child's teacher/class, receive your child’s report card, complete enrollment, and complete the necessary beginning of the year school forms like your child's emergency card. In the future, this is also how state testing results will be communicated.
Click HERE for the link to the parent portal. If you cannot log-in successfully, please call our school's office at 224-4140 or email our Student Services Clerk, Devin McComas, at email@example.com. Be sure to keep your log-in information in a safe but accessible place.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)
Q: Do I have to re-register my child for school each school year?
A: If your child is already a TK-7th grade student, you do NOT have to register each school year. He/she will automatically have a seat the next year. However, if your child is currently not enrolled at Boulder Creek or is a student in the Boulder Creek Preschool, you WILL NEED TO REGISTER.
