  October is Here!

It is hard to believe we have completed almost a full quarter of the school year! So much has occurred already… Back to School Night, Field Day, Choir Concert, Movie Night and our Annual Fundraiser. We enjoyed seeing so many of you at one or more of these beginning of the year events. Students have gotten back into the swing of things and are working hard in their classes. Look for First Quarter Report Cards to be coming home on Monday, Oct. 19th. This will be followed by Fall Conferences on the evenings of the 22nd and 29th of this month. Please plan to come out and get more information on your child’s progress and how you can support their learning at home. Your child’s teacher will contact you to sign up for a time slot that fits your schedule. Read the rest of this entry »

Field Day was a Blast!

Field1Field Day was a great day for all students that participated on September 11th. The weather was pleasant and each student got to participate in 13 stations. Some of the K-2 stations included water balloon toss, sponge relay, 3 legged race, and a fun game called sink the ship. The 3-5 stations included an under/over relay, volleyball, team toss relay, and Zumba. The most popular event for all was the bouncy house and slide!

     Thank you to each and every volunteer who took time out of their schedule to lead the games for our students. You all did a fabulous job and our students all had smiles on their faces because of you! Special Thanks to Mrs. Zimmerman, Side Creek Physical Education Teacher for coordinating this years' field day.

“Best Day of the Year”

Side Creek's field day was held on Friday, September 19th.  The field day was planned for September 12th, but the weather was poor that day.  Side Creek's field day was moved from the spring to the fall because of the early dismissal of school in May.

Thanks to Mrs. Zimmerman for preparing and hostessing Field Day on Friday September 19th!  Many students were quoted as saying "IT IS THE BEST DAY OF THE YEAR!" We would also like to thank the MANY volunteers who made Field Day so wonderful!
