Creeker Interest Groups – Back by popular demand, we will be having interest groups  the last week of February , called “ WEEK OF WONDER!” . Students will have the opportunity to sign up for an activity that interests them and a teacher leader will spend time with that group everyday that week  on that topic. The first phase of preparation was getting ideas from students to instill more student choice and voice in our school! The team has been meeting to look at these ideas so that we can prepare to present the choices to the students. More to come as we move forward.
