Principal's Message

I want to thank our community for coming out in force for our first annual Kindergarten Roundup! We had Autumn Creek staff running childcare in the library, where they were reading books and coloring pictures of Ace the Blue Jay! Families asked us many thoughtful questions and got to meet the first 3 of our kindergarten teachers. It was a great moment for us and I personally went home very energized and excited about our time together.

We are getting close to opening Autumn Creek! I hope you feel as excited about it as we do! Your kids, and your family, are going to love this place!

Watch D.O.G.S Informational Session

Calling all dads, uncles, or males who are important in a kid's life! We will be launching our Watch D.O.G.S. (Dad's of Great Students) in the evening on Monday, May 10 from 6-7pm at Ridge Creek Elementary. Watch D.O.G.S. brings guys into our school so they can serve in their kid's classroom and around the building. This makes you the hero for the day and gives you the opportunity to impact kids in a positive way. Bring your kids and join us for some dessert!

There will be a Watch D.O.G.S Online session on Monday, May 24th from 6:00 - 6:30 pm. Here is the Zoom Link.

Construction Update

Our construction continues to be on track. They FINALLY will be hooking electrical power to the building sometime in the next 10 days. The upstairs is fully tiled and they are now installing tile on the first floor (1st picture below). Classrooms are painted and awaiting the garage doors and flooring (2nd picture below). I am told that construction should wrap up somewhere within 2 weeks of the substantial completion date of June 21. Great news!

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.
