Many thanks to Salt Creek's Student Council who donated new basketball backboards and hoops!
The students and teachers of Salt Creek are working on a school-wide community service project. We are collecting pop tabs for Shriner's Children's Hospital. Shriner's provides medical care for its patients at no cost to the families of the children being treated.
Each homeroom is competing to see who can collect the most pop tabs. Tabs from any type of can will work. So ask your friends and neighbors, and join with us in supporting a great cause!
This year we honor R.J. Weber's grandmother, Alice, who was a lady dedicated to helping others and volunteering her time to many different things. Collecting pop tabs for Children's Hospital was just one of the many things she did.

Your children are invited to take part in a free, monthly Bible-based club for 5th and 6th Graders. In this non-denominational, after school program, students will explore their faith in God, learning how to live like Daniel did in the Bible, including: obeying God; praying and studyng the Word; picking Godly friends; pointing others to God; telling others about God. Though this is a faith-based program, students do not need to attend any church to participate.
Meetings will take place after school until 4:00 p.m. on five Wednesdays: 1/18, 2/15, 3/15, 4/19, and 5/17. In case of school closures due to weather on any of those dates, club meetings will also be canceled.
Click the following links for more information. Be sure to fill out the permission form and return it to the school office to register students for this club.
Congratulations to the oustanding Salt Creek students chosen as Students of the Month. They model good character and show others what it means to be Responsible, Respectful, and Ready every day!
