Principal's Message

The final stretch is upon us and we have a lot of great things coming up very soon! Our teacher teams are already working together to plan instruction for the start of school, and many of our staff are spending their days in professional development sessions learning about everything from technology in the classroom to sharpening their skills on teaching reading. Truly we have a great staff!


We really hope you will join us for our Back to School Block Party this Friday! The ACE staff will be there and our wonderful PTO have organized this so you can connect with other families with students in the same grade. It will be FUN, so don't miss it!


I cannot express it enough: we are excited to open this school for you and your kids. I am confident we will have a great year together!

Schedule time with Mr. Edwards

Autumn Creek families, would you like to have a one on one or small group meeting with Mr. Edwards to talk about our new school? Do you have questions that you would like him to answer? You can pick a time that is convenient for you to meet with Mr. Edwards via Zoom. Schedule time with Mr. Edwards

Construction Update

Our building is going through a thorough cleaning and the construction crew is preparing for our final fire inspection this week. Furniture is being delivered and installed to various locations, including classrooms, this week. Our pod floors have been installed and are looking great! The contractors who will be decorating our pod areas are supposed to be working this week to finalize our pod areas. Crews are also preparing to install graphics on many of the areas around the building including the pod walls.


We do anticipate being able to give tours of the building on the week of July 26th. Please stay tuned and look for an email from us with directions on how to sign up!

Open House, Thursday August 5th

Open House will be Thursday August 5 beginning at 4:30. This will be a structured event since we want our families to be aware of many things about Autumn Creek. Families will attend a session in the cafeteria to hear about:

  1. drop off and pick up, whether students walk, ride the bus, or are car riders.

  2. how and when to visit your student for lunch

  3. how you can be involved at ACE, including Watch Dogs and our PTO.

Families will then travel to their student's actual classroom to meet the teacher and go through what the first week at ACE will look like.


Additionally, we will have an Activities Fair in our gym where families can connect with our community partners including the YMCA, as well as learning more about our clubs.


We will release a specific schedule the week before open house, so be on the lookout for more information!
