Important Dates

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.

End of the Year Technology and Learning Survey
At the beginning of the 16-17 school year we asked students, teachers, administrators, and parents to complete a survey that would help guide us in our curriculum development, professional learning offerings, budget distribution, and community outreach. 
To follow up with our survey from the beginning of the year, we would like to ask students, teachers, administrators, and parents to help us in completing the other part of this process, the end of the year survey.  Please click the links below to complete your portion of the survey! Parent survey should take about 5 minutes. Student, teacher, and administrator surveys should take around 15 minutes. The survey will be open until May 31st.
We greatly appreciate your input!

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!

Families fill the cafeteria to begin Family Math Night                         The Hamilton family and Matilda Arnold use base ten blocks to
