Indian Creek Elementary is committed to joyfully teaching the hearts and minds of all learners through dedication, perseverance, and good teaching practices.

Music in Our Schools and Read Week

This month is Music in Our Schools and we are highlighting the musical talents and experiences of our staff each morning. The students enjoy hearing about their teacher's hidden talents! We will also be having Read Week March 14th-18th. We will have daily dress-up days, guest readers, mystery readers, family reading activities, and lots of fun reading activities! We also will have the books that students earned through our Book Blast fundraiser going home that week.

End of Trimester 2

We just completed our second trimester! That means we are two-thirds of the way through our school year! Report cards will be sent home on March 11th via email. We are so proud of all that our students have learned so far this year and look forward to seeing them continue to grow. They have been working hard!
