Principal's News
By Scott Lay   
 The staff, school board, and students of Clear Creek School are proud to announce that Susan Lemmons is our 2016/17 Teacher Who Makes a Difference! Mrs. Lemmons is currently our 3rd grade teacher and Student Council advisor. 
 Mrs. Lemmons is a bundle of positive energy who makes learning an exciting adventure in her classroom. The students’ day starts off with a rousing rendition of the “Pledge of Allegiance” around the flagpole. This is followed by high energy learning based around solid academic units. The students are always the center of the classroom. This may include presenting a science experiment to the class, showing their computer generated Presidents report, or performing a play to the school. 
 A dinner to honor her will be held on April 6th in Nevada City. Well done Mrs. Lemmons!
 I would also like to congratulate our amazing Clear Creek students who earned several honors at the Nevada County STEAM Expo last weekend. CJ Dvorak, Olivia Petty, and Bradley Gribas all earned a spot at the state science fair in Los Angeles for their outstanding science projects! CJ Dvorak, Macey Fowler, and Sam Swink earned 3rd place in the 8th grade group math competition. Grace Ballou, Molly Fowler, and Dayanara Moreno also earned 3rd place in the 7th grade group math competition. A fantastic accomplishment for all!
 
Library News!
By Lesley Bullock   

The library has just implemented a new cataloging and circulation system that will make searching for books and resources a lot easier. It is now a web based system that you may access from any computer, even from home! Eventually students will be able to look to see if a book is available and put it on hold without having to physically be in the library or having to track me down. In order to do this I will have to input a user name and password for them (same as their AR user names and passwords), but this will take time. I will let all the students know when this is up and running.

Also, just as a reminder, you can find out if a book is AR by going to arbookfind.com. You can search by title or author to see whether or not a book you have at home has a quiz.

Library schedule for 2016-2017 is as follows:

Mondays First Grade

Tuesdays Fourth and Fifth Grades

Wednesdays Second Grade

Thursdays Third Grade

Fridays Kindergarten and Sixth Grades

Seventh and Eighth Grades go during Language Arts

Please help your child remember to bring his/her library book(s) back on the appropriate day.

Mrs. Bullock
