**Congratulations to Melissa Haderlie**
Awarded the ‘Provo Way Award’ at the February School Board Meeting
Melissa Haderlie is new to Spring Creek this year. She has been amazing from day one and does so much more than just push the computer carts around the school and keep all of our technology up to date. She has the responsibility of being the school's social media manager taking pictures and videos of events happening at our school and posting them on Facebook. She is a HUGE resource to teachers with their computers, Promethean boards, iPads and Chromebooks. If she doesn't know something, she figures it out. She has stepped in on multiple occasions as an emergency substitute teaching in classrooms from Kindergarten to 6th grade. Melissa also organized events to celebrate Global Safer Internet Week and planned activities which included lessons on internet safety, guest speakers, a quiz drawing, and a poster contest. Her initiative and positive attitude are a great example to the faculty at Spring Creek. We don't know what we would do without her.

**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!
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
