Hello Salt Creek Parents and Guardians,
I hope you all have had a wonderful summer break and took time to relax, play, and make lots of great memories with friends and family. It was great to see many of you around the community during the summer, and I look forward to another dynamic school year. Salt Creek will be having it’s 10th Anniversary next year, and I know we are all anticipating an awesome celebration!
As we reflect on the past school year and strive to strengthen our home-school partnership, we are excited to be planning Coffee Chats, parent workshops, events, and meetings about important topics relevant to your child’s education such as attendance policies, how to support your child with homework, school budget, school safety, and special programs. We encourage you to be engaged with us and give us feedback and input on how we can work together to make your child’s educational experience and outstanding one. We have a dynamic new School Safety Committee that will be providing training to our staff, parents, and students on disaster preparedness and response, and we are also forming a strong Salt Creek GATE Advisory Committee to ensure that the needs of our GATE students are met thought differentiated instruction and rigorous enrichment programs. Our ELAC Committee will be recruiting parents to join them in their mission to provide better support for our English Learner students in both our Dual Immersion and English Only classrooms. I am in awe at how our parents are working together with us to create a culture and climate where student needs are a top priority. We know that our Salt Creek parents are among the best in Chula Vista, and we have truly appreciated the community support and partnership this past year.
Please let us know any way that we can serve your family’s educational needs in the coming school year.
Our mission at Salt Creek is to create confident college and career ready leaders who apply learned skills to real-life situations. They are innovative and critical thinkers, effective communicators, and collaborative learners. Students are self-evaluators who have the skills to adapt to the diverse world around them. They are respectful and responsible citizens in the community.
Salt Creek Elementary School shares the district’s vision for our local learning community. Salt Creek is committed to providing a safe, challenging, and nurturing environment for all of our children. Our children are creative-thinking, high-achievers, confident in their own abilities. They are committed to life long learning and responsible citizenship. They are unique individuals who take pride in developing their own full potential. Our diversity gives us strength and promotes equity for all. Our learning environment is based on high expectations and clear standards. Families, school, and community work together to benefit all children which fosters respect for one another.
We embrace a rapidly changing world and look to our community and district for support. Students are provided the tools and strategies to become self-sufficient and technologically proficient, accessing information from all over the world. Students are motivated to meet high academic standards, which include art, drama, and physical fitness. Students appreciate all cultures and languages and do not take note of individuals' economic status.
We look forward to the future with hope and confidence.
