Johnson County Spelling Bee Information
We want to make you aware of a change for elementary students in the 2022-2023 school year. Elementary students will not participate in classroom and/or building wide spelling bees.
While participation in oral bees is beneficial to a small group of students, it does not serve as best practice related to word study, and additionally, does not increase spelling skill proficiency. The goal of a spelling bee is to publicly identify one student who is successful; however, all other students must misspell for this to occur.
If an individual student remains interested in participation in the official Scripps spelling bee competition at the county level, the district is committed to making this possible by retaining licensure.
If you wish for your student to participate in the Johnson County bee (February 4, 2023), please reach out to your child’s teacher and principal, in writing, no later than November 1, 2022.
Clear Creek Elementary Holiday Mart Vendor Application Saturday, November 19th, 9:00am – Noon
You are invited to display and sell your arts, crafts, or merchandise at the annual CCE Holiday Mart! This event is held at CCE during Winter Wonderland, where we have pictures with Santa, the fall Book Fair, food offerings, the CCE choir, and other holiday activities! We are looking for a variety of products to give CCE families a start to their holiday shopping…crafts, jewelry, food, hand bags, make-up, home decor, Christmas items, and much more! Please feel free to share this application with friends and family who may be interested in participating.
Applications will be accepted by Megan Finley until November 4. You can e-mail the form to MLFinley17@gmail.com OR send it home with Lucy Finley (3rd Grade, Leonard). Priority will first be given to CCE families. We try our best not to allow duplicate vendors, and applications will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis. Vendors are solely responsible for sales, sales tax, payments received, and delivery of items. All vendors will be contacted by November 7, and if your application is accepted, your payment will be due by November 18.
Due to our configuration, only a limited number of tables will have access to electricity. Vendors requesting electricity will be assigned in the order that applications are received.
Questions? Please contact the Winter Wonderland coordinator Megan Finley at MLFinley17@gmail.com.

Upcoming Fall Parade: October 31st
Fall Parade: October 31st at 9:05 A.M.
Fall fun is just around the corner! Clear Creek will host our 4th annual all school parade Monday, October 31st starting at 9:05 a.m. Parade routes are below to help you pick the best spot to be able to see all of the wonderful costumes.
If your child would like to wear a costume…
Wear it to school that morning.
Keep costumes school appropriate.
Save the face paint, weapons, and hair coloring for trick-or-treating.
For safety, children must be able to clearly see through a mask.
We would love for families to join us during the parade! Since we have limited parking we highly encourage those that can, to walk to the school or carpool with other families. Also, please be mindful of the morning car loop. The back parking lot will be unavailable for parking until the car loop has ended, approximately 8:45am. The front bus loop will also be blocked off entirely as we will parade through the loop.
Parade Route (See Maps Below)
If weather allows, all grades will parade outside. The parade will start at the back doors on the south end of the parking lot. We plan to have grade levels parade in the following order: fourth, third, kindergarten, fifth, first, and then second. Children will walk along the back parking lot following the path around the kindergarten playground. They will then walk across the front of the building and reenter the school at the front entrance to head back to class. Our parade route is noted in red on the map below. Please keep this area clear for the staff and students.
Inclement Weather Route
If the weather is not conducive for an outdoor event, we will parade in the hallways and parents may find a spot along the route to view.
Parade will start in the 4th Grade and the following will add to the end of their parade:
