This Week at the Creek

Hour of Code

This week we will be joining millions of students around the world in learning about computer coding during Hour of Code. Each student will get to spend at least one hour exploring coding at schools spanning the globe. Our class will be participating on Friday morning, by trying out some coding apps on the school iPads. We are excited to experience the world of coding!

Spiral Math Review

You should be seeing your child's spiral math review coming home daily in their folder. We review these on Mondays only. They take their weekly check each Friday. Please review your child's work with them each night and help them correct any incorrect work. Thanks for your help!

Lunch & New Background Checks

All guests and parent volunteers must have their background check completed prior to volunteering at school or having lunch with their child. The online background checks may take up to 6 days to process. You do not need to complete a background check prior to visiting if you have had one done in HSE within the past 3 years. ALL guests must also complete an online anti-bullying training webinar.
