Olde Creek Weekly Update

Read Across America Week

What an AMAZING week at our school! Read Across America week was full of excitement, inspiration…and FUN that was all connected by literacy. The addition of the Guest Readers this year was a big success. All of our guests, including Dr. Lockard, the FCPS Interim Superintendent, had wonderful things to say about all of our students and our school. A HUGE thank you goes to the staff members and parent volunteers who made all of the events happen this week and from the tremendous support we received from the community.

Be sure to follow our school on Twitter. This is great way to stay current with what is happening in our building and to see lots of photos of the exciting learning adventures that our students are going on each day.


Olde Creek Vision and Mission Input

Later this month, the staff at Olde Creek will begin the process of developing a new vision and mission statement for our school. As a part of that process, it will be important to have input from all of the key stakeholders that contribute to our school’s success. We would love to have as much input from the community as possible to the following statement….Please describe a bright future for Olde Creek ES.  We will also be going through a similar process with all of our students to gather their input. Everyone connected to our school is an important part of this process! If you are interested, please take a few moments to provide your input using the link below.
