Established in 1996, Sand Creek Elementary School was named for the creek that we are located near. It was built to support the new housing developments being built in the area. Originally, there was a grant with the city to include a Family Center within the school, and while that partnership has ended, the extra space in the school building has been beneficial as our school population continues to grow. Part of our growing population has to do with the fact that we are located on the border of another school district, and our gorgeous school building attracts many families to Sand Creek.
Sand Creek Elementary is a traditional K-5 school with an average of 85 students in each grade level. Since the school was first built, we have also been home to preschool programs and a severe needs special education program. In addition to two Headstart preschool classrooms, we also have on Early Connections program for young children, and a before and after school daycare. Our school population also includes around 150 English Language Learners.
Our school has a very active PTCO (Parent Teacher Community Organization) and a large number of active VIP (Very Involved Parent) volunteers. Our PTCO runs yearly fundraisers for the school, which has helped Sand Creek in our efforts to get each classroom equipped with an interactive whiteboard, projector and document camera. In addition, wireless internet was installed throughout the building 2 years ago.
While our focus each and everyday is on the academic achievement of our students, and doing everything we can to ensure our students are on the path to being college and career ready, we also find ways to address other needs of our students. Last year we began a new partnership with LiveWell Colorado Springs, offering after school physical fitness classes for students, and establishing a School Health Team to address needs of both staff and students.
