It was another busy week at The Creek and second semester is fully underway.  We are half-way through 3rd Quarter, and now is a great time to review grades and check powerschools. Students should have received interim/progress reports for each of their classes this week to aid in this opportunity to check-in. 

Below are some important reminders for next week and your future calendars.

Registration Updates for 2023-2024

We are about halfway through the process of helping students register for their classes for the 2023-2024 school year.  Just a reminder to please talk over your student’s choices as we build the schedule each year based on what our students sign up to take.  Proof sheets will be sent home by the end of March for all students to double check and make any corrections.  Please click on this link for Registration Info.


Seniors: Please report scholarships to Student Services!

Senior and senior families, we want to recognize seniors who have been awarded scholarships this year and include them on our Senior Scholarship Listing.  Please take a picture of the scholarship letters that you have received and email to Mrs. Mercado in Student Services at  Last year’s seniors received over $8 million in scholarships and we know the Class of 2023 will represent just as well!  Make sure to check our Scholarship listing page as we have posted several new available scholarships over the past few weeks.
