Principal's Message

  • Dear Penny Creek Families:

    At Penny Creek, we strive to help more kids learn more, and to make school one of the most important parts of our students’ day.  We also prioritize social-emotional learning and enrichment opportunities beyond the classroom.   

    To support a positive learning environment, we emphasize the importance of showing Penny Creek PRIDE

    At Penny Creek, PRIDE stands for the following: 

    Problem solver 
    In control and safe 
    Do your best 
    Everyone cares 

    We teach students how to demonstrate these behaviors and find many ways to recognize all the positive behaviors of Penny Creek students.  As the year progresses, ask your child about PRIDE tickets-- what they mean, and how to earn them. 

    This year, as social distancing is no longer required, we look forward to strengthening our partnership with you!   You are welcome to volunteer and attend the variety of family events we hold each year.  We encourage involvement in our amazing Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and our Natural Leaders parent group.

    If you have any questions, please reach out to us. 


    Marti Shefveland, Principal
