Principal's Corner

We are looking forward to a fabulous week at the Creek! Last week we had so many wonderful things going on at our school. The fifth grade students verses staff basketball game was a huge success. Evening of Entertainment was amazing and our students were fabulous! The Odyssey of the Mind Competition was held on Saturday in Raleigh and we are so proud of all our eagles!!:)

Our goal for The Creekside Connection is to ensure all families stay connected to Creekside. The Creekside Connection will be published monthly. The newsletter will contain important news, reminders and dates.Thank you for your continued support of our school! ~Arrica DuBose

Curriculum Connection

How often does your child read each night? All students in grades K-5 bring home baggie books each night. The books are on their instructional levels. This helps students develop a joy for reading. Reading each night also helps students build stamina. Working with students on building stamina and comprehension is so important. It is equally important to work on written comprehension with your child. Students should practice during the week on answering questions that are specific to their book choice.

It is very important for our students to see us modeling good reading habits as well. Reading to students each night also helps them develop a wonderful love of reading.
