Mission 2 Save Program starts this Wednesday!

Salt Creek is one of only 47 schools in the San Diego County to have a partnership with Mission Federal Credit Union, and Mission 2 Save is just one of the ways that our students and families can benefit.  You can open up a Savings Account for your child and they can learn financial literacy by applying savings habits early in life.  Students can make deposits on campus every Wednesday before school.  We also need one parent volunteer each Wednesday morning to help MFCU staff collect deposits and distribute prizes.  If you can help, just let us know!  To download the application for an account, click here:  Salt Creek + Mission Fed M2$ Flyer

Meet our New Associate Principal!

Dear Salt Creek Families,

My name is Ashley Vasquez and I’m excited to introduce myself as the new Associate Principal of Salt Creek Elementary School. Over the past 10 years, I have worked as a teacher, math curriculum writer, and academic coach in the Chula Vista Elementary School District. I grew up in Hawaii and moved to San Diego after graduating High School. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies, Bilingual Teaching Credential, and Administrative Services Credential from the University of San Diego. I have a Masters of Education in Teacher Leadership from the High Tech High Graduate School of Education. When I’m not serving your children, I’m spending time with my three beautiful children: Jacob (12), Makai (4), and Mila (1).

I’m looking forward to getting to know each and every one of your children, their unique personalities, special skills and talents, and academic interests. I will encourage them to be creative and innovative, support their individual learning styles, celebrate their continuous academic growth, and let them know how special they are to our school. I’m so thankful to have this opportunity to work with your amazing community and am looking forward to an exciting school year!
