"Where it's always a great day to be a Bison!"
A Note from Ms. Marlatt
Welcome to May, and welcome to the last month of this school year. It is very hard to believe we are almost at the end of this year's journey!
We continue to stress the importance of great attendance. This is something I will continue to remind you until our last week together! Please do your best to leave meetings and appointments for Mondays and after school. Do all you can to have your children to school on time, everyday!
I hope you enjoy our newest "This Week at Second Creek" video. We celebrated Buffy's birthday and we had fun learning together. Take a few minutes to read and take on all of the information shared here.
My door is always open. Please come by, call or email with you have any questions or suggestions for us to become better!
Thank you for sharing your children with us!
Staff Appreciation Week
And don't forget our fun spirit week!

PK Para - part time
SSN Paras (2 openings)
We want to congratulate Ms. Amber Pelster - current 2nd grade teacher - for her new appointment as our interventionist/CLS teacher. This new position will start next year. Ms. Pelster will divide her time as a reading interventionist and a CLD (Culturally and Linguistic Diverse) teacher. We are so excited to offer this as an extra layer of help for our students!
The Great Second Creek Cereal Domino Run
How can families help?
Please bring 2 boxes of cereal to your classroom teacher. Cereal boxes must be new - unused and unopened. We will donate all the cereal once the run is done.
We will go Facebook live for the event, so watch for more details soon!
This year, we have been asked to limit the amount of people in the gym for both ceremonies. We have fire codes we must follow, and we are concerned with everyone's safety. Due to these concerns and after meeting with our Fire Marshal and district personnel, we have been asked to limit guests to the following:
- 2 guests per student. Infant/toddler siblings are okay to join. No school-age siblings are allowed.
