Research shows that missing 10% of the school year — which can be just two or three days every month — can add up to so much lost time in the classroom that children just can't keep up. Attendance is critical to the success of our students.

Last Day For Students
Family Math Night is a great Success
Leading Creek Elementary held Family Math Night on Thursday, Dec. 1. The event was planned, organized and executed by teachers Melissa Wood, Lora Chapman and Tracy Arnold. We had a fantastic turnout with over eighty parents and students in attendance. Families worked together at different stations, playing fun math games that they can play at home to improve math skills. Each family went home with a math tool box containing all the materials they need to play the math games at home. We wrapped up the night with snacks and door prizes. It was a great evening of family fun and learning!
