Spring Creek 2017
Thursday, Jan 26th ~ 6:00pm
The purpose of STEM Fairs in Provo City School District is to engage students in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math and to provide an opportunity for students to investigate and excel in practical solutions to real world questions and problems. All students, regardless of grade level, who compete in a school STEM Fair must complete all paperwork (Parent Consent Form and CUSF Project Approval Form) prior to beginning their projects, this will ensure safety for all involved and eligibility for a student as they may advance to the District fair, Region fair and levels beyond. These forms need to be turned in to Miss Stewart by Monday, January 23rd in order to qualify for the District Fair. Click on the links below for the forms or students can pick them up from Miss Stewart or their teacher.
All project displays must follow the display rules set by CUSF. Displays may consist only of a display board and notebook. All student projects will be judged by three qualified, independent judges using the approved scoring rubrics provided by the District. See Rubrics link below or students can pick up a copy from Miss Stewart. They are identical to the rubric students will be judged by at the District and at CUSF. Each Elementary school will be allowed to send their 8 highest scoring projects, regardless of category, to participate at the District STEM Fair.

**Congratulations to Jean Jones**
Awarded the ‘Provo Way Award’ at the November School Board Meeting
Jean Jones is our head secretary. She has worked for the school district for over 30 years. Jean works to meet the needs of all who walk through the office doors. We receive compliments all the time about how friendly our front office is. She works hard. She always has a smile. She wants to help us in any way she can. Principal Franklin believes that the reason she was hired for her first job with Provo City School District is because Jean let her in to visit with the principal. Just a few short months later Mrs. Franklin was teaching at Maeser Elementary. Now Mrs. Franklin loves that she is back working with Jean.
**Spring Creek Elementary Gratitude Challenge""
We are celebrating gratitude for all the wonderful things we are grateful for here at Spring Creek Elementary.
Thank you to all those who participated in the Gratitude Challenge
and to Missy Haderlie for putting this video together for us!
RaDene Hatfield from Women United and United Way of Utah County will be donating one book a month to every student in the 1st and 2nd grade at Spring Creek. She visits each classroom and takes a few minutes to talk to the students to create the love of reading.
This month in each classroom, Mrs. Hatfield asked a student to unwrap a present which was the book they each were receiving. She asked, “how many times can you unwrap the present?” and then she asked, “how many times can you open a book?” She told the students that the book she will be giving them is a present that they can open over and over again. The students were so happy to receive their book to take home and add to their personal library.
Spring Creek Elementary is grateful for the wonderful volunteers from NuSkin, Molina Medical, and Women United
who visited our classrooms for the annual Day of Caring event
on Thursday, September 8th.
They read a fun book with each class then did an awesome
interactive project or activity related to the story!
Day of Caring is a special annual event coordinated
through the amazing individuals at United Way of Utah County
as an opportunity to improve the community through service.
What a great and caring community we live in!
Spring Creek is excited to announce the implementation of the
Positive Behavior Supports and Interventions (PBIS).
To help introduce this to our students we had an assembly,
As part of the assembly we had a very special "Queen Bee" who
introduced us to 3 other very important "B's",
our school wide beliefs:
Be Kind, Be Safe, Be Responsible.
Ask your child what they learned about what it means to
Be Kind, Be Safe and to Be Responsible
