School hours for students
Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday:
Our endeavor is for each member of our school community to follow the Critter Code. By understanding our code each of us feels capable, connected, and contributing. We ask each of our students to be personally responsible for their learning in hopes of them becoming self-motivated, life-long learners.
The crucial nature of our work demands that our school, its families, and the community work in partnership together.
To inspire each student to extraordinary achievement every day.

Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year!

2013-2014 School Year
Lexia Core 5
Students can now access their Lexia accounts easily from home! Go to the Lexia Core 5 website for Dry Creek, enter your student's id number, and the password (see your child's teacher if you don't know the password), and that's it!
Lexia Core 5 is a new and updated version of the previous Lexia we have used for the past few years. This is a great individualized program meant to help students fill in any gaps they might have from missing skills or concepts.
