Principal's Message

Our excitement continues to grow with each passing day as we look toward opening Autumn Creek Elementary in August! Our construction remains on track as you will see in a later section of this newsletter. And perhaps more exciting than that, we are assembling an outstanding staff that you and your family will love. We have gone through many applications and done many interviews, and I feel that we have the best of the best coming forward to work with your kids. We now have multiple former teachers of the year, strong leadership across the board, and people who absolutely love kids. Our people make up a large part of what Autumn Creek is about, and I think you are going to love what you see!

Construction Update

Construction is progressing at a rapid clip right now! Interior walls are up and are being painted. Some flooring is being installed in the building, and most work on the exterior of the building is complete. Our substantial completion date is June 21, and it is our plan to provide opportunities for families to tour this amazing building over the summer! Stay tuned for more information on that.
This picture is a view of our 2nd grade learning pod and classrooms. Notice the wide opening in the wall? Those are for garage doors, which every other classroom will have! That allows our teachers to use the pod area as an extension of their classroom.
This is a view down our main hallway leading to the main entrance and library. You will see a lot of natural light wherever you go in our building.

Hired Staff Highlight

Jessica Salazar - Kindergarten

Jessica's principal actually reached out to us at the same time that she applied. Her comment: you'd be foolish to pass up on her! They were brokenhearted to lose her but she is wanting to work closer to home. She has extensive experience at kindergarten where she has led her team for many years.

Demetria Claybon - 1st Grade

Demetria comes to us from Galena Park ISD and is known by the staff as the teacher who will teach her students literally anywhere! She has taught lessons from the principal's office, from the hallways, from the cafeteria. She's everywhere! And she's known for her energy and creativity in getting kids involved and engaged in their learning.

Chinele Poole - 1st Grade

Chinele comes to us from Park Lakes Elementary where she has been teaching 1st grade. Chinele is originally from Scotland and has taught kids in the Middle East and Australia. She told us that "the world is her oyster," but has decided to settle here in the Houston area. She brings tremendous positivity, enthusiasm, and a world perspective that we need!

Gloria Bennett - 2nd Grade

Gloria comes to us from Ridge Creek Elementary! She is known for creating student experiences via project based learning and themes in parts of the building. She is highly regarded by her current administrators and has great relationships with her students.

Information on Registering your ACE Student for the 2021-2022 School Year

If your student will be transferring to Autumn Creek from Ridge Creek Elementary or Fall Creek Elementary, you do not need to do anything to register them for school next year! We will automatically receive their records from the sending campus. So sit back, relax, and dream about how much your kids will love it here!

If you are new to the area and did not previously have students enrolled in our school, you will need to register them. We will post a link to this on our website once the school district makes the link available to us. We anticipate that happening in May. You can always stay up to date on this by visiting our ACE website.
