First Day of School, July 23!

First Day of School

The first day of school is fast approaching, and we are eager to start another great school year!  We will see you all on Wednesday, July 23!  We suggest that you plan to arrive to school early on the first day, and no later than 8:10 a.m. everyday to ensure that you are not late.   School begins promptly at 8:15 a.m. and dismissal for the first day is 1:15 p.m. for 1st-6th grade and 1:05 p.m. for Kindergarten.  Students may line up on the blacktop and wait for their teacher.  Although there is staff supervising students walking the track and waiting in their lines, we do ask that students save playing with friends for recess and lunch.  Please make sure that you review the dismissal plan with your child, whether it’s riding the bus, going to DASH or YMCA, getting picked up, or walking home.  We allow 15 minutes grace period at dismissal before we ask students that are still waiting to be picked up to wait in the quad area.  This measure is for safety of our students.  Thank you so much for your cooperation.

Kindergarten parents must accompany their children to the kindergarten area and remain there in line for one-to-one handoff.  Kindergarten bus riders will be picked up by Salt Creek staff and walked over to the kindergarten area.

If you were not able to come to our Info Fair on Saturday, please come into the school office to pick up your Information packet.  You may also provide residency verification if  you have not done so.

We will see you all on Wednesday!!

Mrs. Perez and Mrs. Du-Song

Spirit Tags are Back!

Spirit Tags

Spirit Tags will be on sale during tomorrow’s Info Fair. Each tag is $1. We will have grade-level tags and limited quantities of last year’s fun tags. We will offer new tags on a monthly basis during the school year.

Birthday Spirit Tags grams will also be available. These tags are pre-ordered and delivered to your child’s class with a note. Birthday grams are $1 each.

10th Anniversary Tile Fundraiser Is Back On PTAvenue

Our 10th Anniversary Tile Fundraiser was a big hit with Salt Creek Families! So due to overwhelming demand, we are selling additional tiles on our new PTG website (PTAvenue.)

Click here to visit the PTG’s online store and purchase your tile.

These tiles will only be on sale through July 30th. Tiles will be delivered August 1st and MUST BE PAINTED at Daydreams Ceramic Cafe no later than August 11th to be installed in the Salt Creek courtyard (outside the school office).

For those of you who purchased a tile in June, we hope you enjoyed visiting Daydreams Cafe over the summer to paint your tile. If you purchased a tile in June and did not paint it before the July 11th deadline, there is one more opportunity for you to paint your tile before they are installed at the school. Please have your tile painted no later than August 11th.

If you have not painted your tile by August 11th, you will miss out on the opportunity to have your tile installed at the school.

Salt Creek PTG Is Going Paper – Less

Hello Salt Creek Families!

We were having a few problems with the links that were posted this morning, but things are up and running now. So, to avoid long line-ups at Info Fair on Saturday, go ahead and use our new PTAvenue website to register and pay for your Salt Creek PTG Membership, Mountain Lion SpiritWear and your 2014/15 Yearbook. 

The Salt Creek PTG has gone paper-less (meaning “less” paper). Over the past several months, we have developed a website, which includes membership registration, an online store, a calendar, volunteer tracking and much, much more. The goal is to have as much PTG information in one place for families as possible. To help get you acquainted with our new PTAvenue website, here are some helpful links:

Visit the PTG’s main page – This is a good page to bookmark! This will contain important dates and information that you may find useful.

Register for your 2014-2015 PTG Membership – Here you will have the opportunity to register your family with the PTG following the instructions posted on the site. Once you’ve completed the registration process, you’ll be directed to our online store where you can pay for your registration online using a credit/debit card or your PayPal account, or you can select to send in a check or cash payment.

Visit the PTG’s online store – Here, you can order Spirit Wear and Yearbooks. Currently, we still have Salt Creek Elementary 10th Anniversary Tiles for sale in our online store.   In the future, as events become available, you’ll also be able to use the online store to purchase tickets for PTG-sponsored events (such as the Fall Festival).

View the PTG calendar – You’ll have the opportunity to plan for PTG events reflected in the calendar. You’ll also see which events require volunteers and what kind of volunteer help is needed. Instructions are also available on the site detailing how to subscribe to the calendar so that you can automatically see the events on your mobile device or Google calendar.

We hope that you find this new website useful. We are happy to hear any feedback you have that may help us to improve the PT Avenue experience. If you do not have access to a computer, there will be a limited number of opportunities to either use a PTG computer at the school to place your orders and/or place orders using paper forms. Please keep an eye out for announcements!

Best Regards,

Salt Creek PTG Board

Kindergarten Dual Immersion CD Packet Available



Hello to all of our new Kindergarten Dual Immersion Families!  As promised at our June meeting, a folder with a CD of songs will be available for you to pick up at the front office.  This folder includes handouts with visuals that go along with the CD, which you can begin to play for your child to get them accustomed to what they will be learning in Spanish once school starts.  Our school office is now open, and you can stop by between 8:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. to pick up this folder!

We look forward to another exciting year and welcome you and your child to our Salt Creek Dual Immersion family!

Office Open for Residency Verification

Hello Salt Creek Families!  I hope you are all enjoying your summer break – and before you head out to the beach or park, don’t forget to stop by the school office to provide your verification of residency.  Ms. Ponce and Ms. Valdivia are happy to take your paperwork between 8:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Thanks so much!!

F.Y.I. about 2013/2014 Yearbooks

The 2013/2014 yearbooks were a big hit this year! After filling all the pre-orders, we had several yearbooks left over, but we are now officially sold-out. 

We have checked with the yearbook company, but they do not have any yearbooks left over, and they are unable to accept any more orders for the 2013/2014 year.

Pre-orders for the 2014/2015 yearbook will go on sale at the Info Fair on July 19th. If you missed out on this year’s book, please make sure that you take advantage of our pre-order process for next year.

On another note, the Salt Creek PTG wishes you all a happy, fun & safe summer break. See you in July!
