Spring Creek Elementary Update (6/14/21)
Reverse Parade Wed. 6/16, 6-7 p.m. (5th grade only from 6-6:20 p.m.) (Repeat update)
This will also be an opportunity to celebrate the promotion of our 5th graders as they transition to middle school so we are having a designated time specifically for 5th grade students (and their siblings) from 6 p.m. to 6:20 p.m. Grades K-4, come anytime between 6:20- 7p.m.
We invite all families to join in on the fun by decorating their vehicles, bikes, and/or making signs if they choose. We will have music, decorations and signs of our own to celebrate our Spring Creek students! Please mark your calendars for our reverse parade! : )
