Principal's Message

  • Dear Penny Creek Families:

    Welcome to Penny Creek and the 2020-2021 school year. This year, we have a unique and important opportunity and we are excited to embark upon the journey.

    Last Spring, when school closure began, we learned a great deal about how to use technology. We know much of the burden for education fell on parents and we thank you for all you did to support your child’s learning. This year, we look forward to using technology to support student learning as well as build social connections among classmates and teachers.

    We care very much about creating a caring environment where each child feels welcomed and emotionally and physically safe, whether learning online or in person. All teachers will meet with students in live Zoom meetings daily. We are teaching learning expectations for participating in distance learning; we are making student and family access to classrooms more consistent among all teachers; and we are continuing our PRIDE assemblies and celebrating student successes.

    We look forward to partnering with you in the year ahead.

    Marti Shefveland, Principal
