December

A Message to Our Families

As the holiday season approaches, we want to take a moment to let all our Creighton families know how honored we feel to be entrusted with educating your children. They are a true blessing to us and enrich our lives beyond measure. We consider them our "gifts" that bless us through the year with their insights, their humor and their caring and thoughtful ways. We love them! We are also thankful for our parents and our community who come through whenever there is a need. Together we make a pretty awesome team. We hope that this holiday season overflows with joy and happiness for you and your family and that the new year will bring the same!

Love our Cubs!

Creighton Kids Caring Month

We are beginning a new tradition here at Creighton Elementary and declaring December as “Creighton Kids Caring Month”. At Creighton we teach that one act of kindness can multiply to touch the lives of many and that all of us should strive to share our kindness with others each and every day. To help our students understand that their kindness can make a positive impact in the lives of others beyond their school, each grade level team is sponsoring a community service project. Below you can read about our projects. Our students will be collecting from December 2nd through December 17th. Even though each grade level has a specific project, we are encouraging all our students to contribute where they can to make an even bigger difference in their community
