Principal's Message

  • Dear Penny Creek Families:

    Welcome to Penny Creek and the 2021-22 school year. The year ahead is full of promise.  We look forward to welcoming students on site, and to helping each of them grow both academically and socially-emotionally. 

    Last year, students amazed us as they made the most of learning in the distance setting and developed high levels of proficiency in navigating Zoom sessions, Canvas and a variety of online educational sites and programs.  This year, we can build on the growth we made in utilizing technology, and we can provide the social learning experiences as well as better meet the individual academic needs of each child. 

    To support the return of students to on-site learning, we are prioritizing building positive relationships, building students’ confidence, and helping students experience joy in learning.  We care very much about creating a caring environment where each child feels welcomed and emotionally and physically safe.  

    If we can answer any questions, or be of any assistance, please reach out to us.  We look forward to partnering with you in the year ahead. 

    Marti Shefveland, Principal
