We never know the path others are traveling

It saddens my heart that so many are sick and so many are dying. May we at this time pause and have a moment of silence for those that we have lost. They are our family members, friends

By Kellie Chatfield

Principal Jill Franklin and her students are looking forward to September 25, 2018, the day that My Story Matters will serve the sixth-grade students at Spring Creek Elementary!

Spring Creek Elementary School is a diverse school; 45% of its students learn English as a second language. It earned its designation as a National Title I Distinguished School by utilizing its Title I funds to catalyze outstanding student academic achievement and improvement. The school and its students do this despite the economic situation of the students’ families — 86% of students receive free or reduced-cost breakfast and lunch.

Principal Franklin consistently looks for ways to encourage and support her students and is excited about involving them in this My Story Matters event.

“The My Story Matters project is a perfect match for empowering the students that we nurture and teach. We will be doing this project with our sixth-grade students. They need to know that they have a story that is unique. They need to understand that their years at Spring Creek and up to this point in their life have prepared them to continue their story.  Our theme this year is College and Career Bound: I have done amazing things and my future is bright. We can’t wait for our students to tell their stories. Their stories will change you.”

As we plan and prepare for this event we need volunteers. Volunteers work one-on-one with individual students to gather information about the students’ lives. This interview information, along with professional photographs will create a custom storybook about the child’s life. Once published, their storybook will be presented to the child for them to keep. If you are a photographer or someone that would like to interview remarkable sixth graders, please register at http://mystorymatters.info/volunteer/

Follow us on Facebook to view past events.

We are also collecting basic school supplies, backpacks, socks, and coats to help the many students who will come without them.

Every child has an important story to tell. Come be a part of their story.
