Dear Alder Creek Parents and Students,
I hope you are having a relaxing summer and are looking forward to beginning a new year at Alder Creek Middle School. Our staff is excited to see our returning 8th grade students and welcome our new 6th and 7th grade students for the 2011-2012 school year.
There are several changes awaiting students at Alder Creek this fall. We are now a 6th – 8th middle school following a 7 period day. Our dedicated staff is working hard to ensure a smooth transition for all of our students. “Assurance Days” have been structured to provide opportunities for our new students to learn and practice the routines and expectations of Alder Creek. In addition, we are excited about our new academic enrichment course offerings. Most 6th grade students will be enrolled in one or more of the following academic classes: Literacy Enrichment, Reading Enrichment, or Math Enrichment. Most 7th and 8th grade students will be enrolled in one or more of the following academic classes: Current Events, Science and Technology, Literacy Enrichment, Reading Enrichment or Math Enrichment.
I am honored to be the principal of Alder Creek. We have an outstanding staff of teachers, secretaries, instructional assistants, custodians, cooks and other support personnel. I am very fortunate to work with an excellent administrative team: John Brooks as assistant principal, Brian Monson and Ezra Kilfoil as counselors and Jessica Sprick as our new dean of students. We all look forward to working together with you this year to create the best possible experience for your student.
