General SOAR Information

We are so excited to welcome our Eagle families back to school! This year is off to a great start. We would like to thank our students, along with their families, for support in school wide procedure changes (especially in the car loop). Your patience and kindness have been much appreciated. As a school family, Dr. W.J. Creel's mission is to empower each other to S.O.A.R. to greatness. SOAR stands for Safety, Ownership, Achievement, and Respect. Ask your child if they can show and tell you the school's mission statement.
