Basketball Update


 

Dear Salt Creek Families,

We understand that many students were looking forward to participating in basketball this season, and we  were equally excited to offer this sport to our students and community.  With regard to finding a basketball coach, this has been a difficult year.  A coach volunteered to lead our team in November and was cleared by our Human Resources division.  This week, however, the gentleman informed us that he will no longer be able to coach the team.  As such, we are sad to say that we have to cancel the season.  In future years, we will continue to look for parent and teacher volunteers to assist with coaching basketball.  Thank you for your understanding.

Robert Cochran, Associate Principal

Taste of Eastlake, January 20th!


We invite you all to attend the Taste of Eastlake from 6-9 p.m. on Friday, January 20th!  Each year Eastlake Educational Foundation supports Salt Creek with a $20,000 grant to support technology.  We could not provide technology support to our students without this grant.   In order to continue receiving this generous donation, EEF asks that we support their fundraising efforts by attending great events like Taste of Eastlake.  We are still short of the 30 Salt Creek attendees that are needed.  If you are looking for a great night out with your spouse or friends, consider attending this event.  The money goes right back to Salt Creek! Just sign up using the link provided, and indicate Salt Creek as your school of choice.  We don’t want to miss out on meeting our goal – plus it would be great to see you all there.  Tickets will not be sold at the door, so sign up quickly!

Happy New Year! School Resumes Tuesday, January 10, 2017!


unknown-2

Happy New Year!  We hope that you are all enjoying the Winter Break and are staying warm and dry!  Don’t forget, school starts again on TUESDAY, JANUARY 10, 2017.  It will be a minimum day,  so please make sure that students are picked up from school on time.

Let’s start fresh in 2017 by making a pledge to drive with extra caution and courtesy on the school campus.  Tips for making 2017 even safer during arrival and dismissal include:

  • Don’t rush – give yourself extra time in the morning so that you are not driving too fast to make it to school on time.
  • Don’t text/talk on phone will driving.   This is extremely unsafe as children are present!
  • Do not block the crosswalk.  There is a new sign on Hunte Parkway reminding motorists to keep crosswalks clear for pedestrians.
  • Do not drop off of pick up children in between the parking lanes.  Students should not be walking in the parking lot unaccompanied as they are not easily seen by motorists and can be struck by a car that is backing up.  Please pick up your child in the yellow loading zone.

Please join me in making this your New Year’s Resolution for a safe campus during arrival and dismissal!!  Please share this information with older siblings, grandparents, and babysitters/nannies who come to drop off or pick up your children.
