Principal's Message

We want to thank the awesome Autumn Creek PTO for organizing the Back to School Block Party at Redemption Square in Generation Park! What a great event! Our staff continue to talk about the connections they made with families and kids, and how it just seemed like a perfect night. Generation Park actually provided the bounce houses on top of the space they provided for us, so we are beginning an important partnership with them. We are so grateful!

Next week we cannot wait to welcome you into our new school during our Open House. I have included additional information on that event later in this newsletter, but the biggest things about that night are getting to meet our staff and see our beautiful building! Unfortunately due to ongoing construction work we are not going to be able to host families for tours this week, but Open House still gives you a preview of the school. You will truly be amazed!

In less than two weeks we will get to welcome your kids to our actual school site for the first day of school, Tuesday August 10! We are going through a lot of preparations to make this happen, so it is a busy time for us. The energy and excitement among our staff is really tangible right now, and I suspect you will feel that when you come visit us on next week. And all of this effort is for your kids!

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

The current focus of construction is on finishing the learning pods! All pod floors are complete and we have a contractor working to install all of the decorations, which will take about 2 weeks to do throughout the building. This includes installing a giant wave under the stairs in the 2nd grade area, a giant dinosaur under the stairs in 1st grade, an elephant in kindergarten, and a spaceship in 4th grade! Wow! Your kids are going to love the look of the building.

Open House, Thursday August 5th

Open House will begin at 5pm on Thursday, August 5th. Please see this schedule and planning template on how the night will flow. As part of our Open House, we will have an Activities Fair in the gym. There will be tables set up for clubs, various community organizations and partners, and other things that will be of interest to our families.

Tuesday Student Folders

At ACE, we will go through the year sending out all-school communications to you on Tuesdays. We are doing this so you do not get inundated with emails and newsletters and other communications during the entire week. That can be difficult to manage, especially when you have multiple children.

Here is what you can expect:

  1. School newsletter- This will come out weekly on Tuesday by the end of the day.

  2. Teacher/ grade level newsletters- These also will be sent home on Tuesdays.

  3. Tuesday folder- Look for this in your student's backpack. This folder will contain graded work, flyers from the school, and any other information we think you will need to know. Teachers may be sending graded work home more frequently than Tuesday.

We hope this small gesture helps you to better partner with our school so we all can support your student's learning!

YMCA After School Care

YMCA After School care registration is open! You can go to our website at to find a registration link along with more information about the program. If you have attempted registration before and were unable to find Autumn Creek Elementary in the list, that issue has been corrected by the YMCA. Also here is a flyer with more information.
