Creek View's Literacy Mission Statement

At Creek View Elementary, we believe our GATORS should view themselves as readers, writers, and thinkers. To develop life-long literacy habits, our campus has created a community in which reading, writing, speaking, listening, and thinking serve as the foundation of our learning.

Welcome to October's Creek View Elementary Literacy Newsletter!
