Welcome to Rose Creek Elementary!

Dear Rose Creek Students, Parents and Guardians,

Welcome back to school! We hope you had a great summer break. We certainly had a busy summer here, with our parking lot expansion project, teacher and administrator training, spending time with our own families – and getting ready to welcome our amazing Rose Creek students and families back! What a wonderful time of year! Rose Creek teachers have been hard at work preparing their lessons and classrooms and are so excited to meet their new classes. We are looking forward to another great year of learning, friendship and growth.

As Mrs. Bird has already announced on our school website, we will be replacing “Leader in Me” this year with a new program, developed by our faculty and titled “Growing Respectful, Responsible Leaders.” We will focus on a different Learning Trait each month: Growth Mindset, Empathy, Resilience, Flexibility, Optimism, Courage, Ownership, Persistence and Curiosity. We look forward to this new program and the positive impact we are certain it will have on our students, and all of us!

Finally, it is with a heavy heart that I must share some sad news. This past week, Jordan School District and the Board of Education made some new administrative assignments. Due to rapid growth, I have been assigned to my other school, Butterfield Canyon Elementary, as a full-time assistant principal. I love that community as well and look forward to the opportunity to hopefully make a bigger difference. However, a large piece of my heart will remain here, with the Rose Creek community – students, teachers, staff, parents – all of you. I will miss you all very much. What an incredible group of people.

Megan Cox has been assigned as the new Assistant Principal at Rose Creek. I know you will give her the same warm welcome that you gave me a year ago. She will do an amazing job, and there is no doubt that she will love you all just as much as I have. As you are all aware, there is no better mentor than Mrs. Bird. She is an incredible principal, and person. I feel so blessed to have learned from her, and from all of you. Have a beautiful year.

Life is Good!
