At Creekside Elementary, we are committed to learning for all. We work hard to create a purposeful place with a clear and meaningful mission, a caring place where students feel valued and safe, and a celebratory place with ceremonies and events where everyone in our school comes together.
We value:
  • Building positive relationships with students and families.
  • Providing a safe and caring environment for learning.
  • Supporting the social/emotional development of each student.
  • Holding high expectations for the growth and achievement of each student.
  • Respecting and understanding the diversity of the students and families we serve.
  • Providing an enriched learning environment that includes art, music, physical education, assets, technology, STEM, and a variety of clubs.
  • Engaging students, parents and community members as partners in the educational process.
  • Recognizing and celebrating all students, staff and community for their achievements.
  • Providing professional development focused on improving instruction.
  • Preparing students for success in college and other post-secondary options.
  • Fostering a desire for lifelong learning, achievement and service to others.
Creekside Elementary students, staff and parents are a true team. At Creekside we proudly wear our red and blue school colors and say, "We are the Creekside Cougars." Together we are dedicated to inspire all children, all staff, and all parents to think, to learn, to achieve, and to care.

With access to the internet comes the availability of material that may not be of educational value or appropriate for students. While at school, CCSD has taken precautions to restrict access to inappropriate or harmful web sites. However, on the internet it is impossible to control all materials and limit all access to information that has no educational value. CCSD firmly believes that the valuable information and the interaction available on the internet far outweigh the possibility that users may procure material that is not consistent with the educational goals of CCSD.
