Creekside Mission Statement
Creekside Vision and Value Statement
Improving student achievement
Creekside combines writing and thinking for our Continuous Improvement Plan focus. Emphasis includes professional development in STAR Protocol (Skills/Knowledge, Thinking, Application, Relationships) and instructional practices for staff and goal setting with planning and reflective strategies for students. One-to-one and peer writing conferences during daily Writers’ Workshops helps teachers meet the needs of all writers. Creekside students build leadership notebooks (goal setting and data collection) which are showcased during student participatory conferences.
Special programs include Special Education pull-out/drop-in programs with certificated and classified staff, Learning Assistance Program (LAP) to support developing readers and mathematicians, English Language Learner (ELL) support for students learning English, SAGE (Special Approach to Gifted Education) for qualifying 3-5th grade students, and the V.O.I.C.E. (Volunteers Of Issaquah Supporting Education) mentorship program.
