Salt Creek Intermediate welcomed author Margaret Peterson Haddix to our school on Wednesday November 9th. She conducted workshops with each family group and answered questions about herself, her books, and what it is like to be an author. Students were especially interested in how she comes up with her book ideas and were eager to get her to autograph their books.

At Salt Creek Intermediate School, we are focusing on Character Education. Students are reminded about what it means to be Respectful, Responsible, and Ready in all areas of the school, including in classrooms, restrooms, the cafeteria, hallways, busses, and assemblies.
See this chart for those specific descriptions: Character Counts
Students are also earning rewards for displaying good character. They can earn extra recess time on Fun Friday, and they can get Brave Bucks when their teachers catch them behaving respectfully and responsibly. Brave Bucks give them the chance to choose a special prize as an incentive.
Brave Cards are also being awarded quarterly for students maintaining good academic grades and consistent school attendance. Click this link for details about this special program: Brave Cards Criteria.
We encourage you to partner with us in emphasizing that character counts. Please encourage your children to always show that they are Respectful, Responsible, and Ready no matter where they are!
The JA BizTown program gives students a realistic opportunity to experience how basic economic concepts are applied in the real world. In the JA BizTown facility, students operate many businesses, including retail stores, manufacturing shops, media outlets, a utility service, a restaurant, a bank and City Hall. This allows them to experience the responsibilities and freedoms of citizens of a free enterprise system.
In November, Salt Creek 5th graders will be participating in this unique and fun learning opportunity. Students in the mods will attend on November 1st, and students in the main building will attend on November 3rd.
