Welcome to Rose Creek Elementary!
Dear Parents and Students of Rose Creek Elementary,
I am delighted to introduce myself as your new assistant principal and look forward to serving the Rose Creek Community. This school holds a special place in my heart, as my own children attended here many years ago. I am honored to be a part of upholding the Rose Creek legacy. I have been so impressed with the caliber of our students and staff who do such a beautiful job of exemplifying our school motto, Leading to Learn, Learning to Lead.
Jordan School District’s mission statement, “Every Child, Every Day” does a nice job of summing up my most basic personal philosophy of education. As an educator, I maintain a strong focus on student learning and the whole child. Building positive relationships and a collaborative working environment are of utmost importance to me.
My background as an educator includes teaching at the elementary level for many years, as well as completing administrative internships at the elementary, middle and high school levels. I thoroughly enjoy working with children and young people of all ages, and absolutely loved my years as a classroom teacher. Most recently I served as a teacher facilitator at Herriman Elementary, coaching intern and new teachers and assisting with administrative duties. My passion for nurturing all educators blossomed with this position. I’m excited to work with the teachers of Rose Creek and I feel privileged to be assisting Mrs. Bird.
I’ve heard wonderful things about the Rose Creek community. I look forward to meeting you and assisting each of your students in their individual educational needs. Please feel free to contact me at any time.
Ms. Candie Checketts
Music Program – New at RC!
We are very fortunate to be a recipient school of the Beverly Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program Grant (BTS for short). This grant allows all students to be able to participate in a wonderful music program at our school! Students are loving it! We are excited to be able to have Miss Roxanne Fairchild as our BTS teacher.
Some Important Reminders
It’s one of the most anticipated events of the year – our annual Halloween Parade! This year’s parade will be held on Tuesday, October 31st at 9:30am. Students should come in their costumes, ready to go. If necessary or appropriate, students may bring clothes to change into afterward. Please remember that district and school dress codes still apply. No weapons or facsimiles of weapons are allowed. Masks or costumes that obscure all or part of a student’s face are prohibited as well. These rules also apply to anyone visiting our school campus. Students should wear comfortable and appropriate shoes for walking and plan on participating in a regular school day following the parade. We look forward to seeing you!
Great Pumpkin Show-Off
Students are invited to carve or decorate a pumpkin at home and bring it to school on Monday, October 30th to be displayed on Halloween Day. Please take your pumpkins home with you that day! Any pumpkins left after school on Tuesday October 31st will magically disappear with the rest of Halloween night.
