Salt Creek Student Nika Woehl Selected CVESD Safety Patrol Colonel!


On Saturday, February 18, 2017,  6th grade student Nika Woehl represented Salt Creek Elementary School at the Chula Vista Police Department’s “Safety Patrol Major Day.” Nika was voted to be Salt Creek’s Safety Patrol Major during the first quarter of the school year and has been leading the Safety Patrol ever since.

On Saturday, Nika was promoted to the prestigious rank of Safety Patrol  Colonel for the entire Chula Vista Elementary School District.  This is the highest rank possible in the CVESD Safety Patrol. Nika passed a rigorous interview process where she impressed CVPD Police Officers with her responses.  In addition, Nika took 2nd place in the 6th Grade District Spelling Bee and she will be representing Salt Creek at the 6th Grade District Speech Contest this Friday.  We are so proud of Nika and all of her accomplishments.  Congratulations to Nika  and her family!

The Imagination Machine

Story Guidelines

  1. Each story submitted must be labeled with the student’s full name, grade level, and teacher’s name.
  2. We accept as many stories as possible. We would rather have too many than too few.
  3. We accept stories from one to two sentences on up, but not exceeding, two pages.
  4. Variety, creativity and imagination are highly encouraged!
  5. All submitted stories must be on paper no larger than 8 1/2 x 11in.
  6. All grade levels are encouraged to participate. Stories may be written individually or by a collaboration of two or more authors.


Writings that will not be accepted:

  1. Due to memorization required on a daily basis, we are not able to perform plays. (AKA scripts)
  2. Book reports, essays and lists will not be considered for performance.
  3. Out of sensitivity to elementary school environments, we will not perform stories containing “potty humor”, nor realistic violence.


All stories must be submitted in the PTG box in the front office no later than MARCH 15, 2017

Valentine’s Day Reminders

Hello Parents!

As we get into the spirit of the Valentine’s season, please remember the following:

  • If your child’s classroom is passing out cards/candies, please know that students will not be permitted to eat those candies during school time.
  • Please consider food allergies.
  • Passing out Valentine’s cards will be reserved for the end of the day.
  • Please do not send in cookies, cupcakes, or other food items unless your teacher has designated that the Valentine’s Party is one of the two class parties they will have with food.  These type of treats will be sent home with your child.  Distribution of these food items is also not allowed on campus after school.

Thank you for being considerate of our district’s Wellness Policy!
