Oh my, what a great week at the Creek.  The students have been busy sharing and learning!  Kinder had a weather man, parent Mr. Zappe, SBISD police officer came to share safety guidelines with students, PreK shared with prospective parents, and Student Council worked hard to prepare for International Day and Kindness month (February).  We've completed so much!
