WE ARE CREEK ~ Week of February 5, 2024
From the desk of Principal Lessard
Dear Dolphin families,
Kudos to some of our Student Lighthouse Leaders who co-presented at the 2024 Leader in Me Symposium last Thursday via Zoom. They did a fantastic job sharing our journey, best practices and many celebrations!
Our SIC Chair Dusty Lanning attended the Joint SIC Meeting on 1/18/24 and has important information to share about upcoming changes to the 24-25 and beyond Academic School Year Calendars. We will have our next BCHS SIC Meeting on 2/5/24 @ 5:30PM- please plan on attending! We also begin 24-25 planning this month for Creek which we will discuss.
As of Friday 2/2, 93.9% of our students are entering school daily in complete uniform compliance! The significant majority of students are leading us to excellence! Please remind your child(ren) that they need to keep his/her ID worn around the neck. This enables us to easily identify all students.
As always, thank you for your support and please reach out if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions.
Leading with love, Mrs. Lessard
Tardy sweeps, ID/Uniform check systems continue. Be on time, dressed for SUCCESS
