Sloan Creek Intermediate School Principal Message

Hello Sloan Creek Families,


I cannot believe we have reached the end of the school year. I have had such an incredible semester at Sloan Creek and am so thankful for the warm welcome and support I have received the past 5 months.


This past week, we have had a lot of fun events for the students.  We've had classroom awards, leadership awards, the 5th vs. 6th grade basketball game, and an epic tug of war competition.  The smiles and laughters have been contagious and left many of us reflecting on how to build more of these experiences into the school year.


As summer begins, I know many of us are looking forward to slowing our pace a bit and enjoying some rest and relaxation. I hope you all have a safe and memorable break with family and friends.


To our 6th grade students and families-Best wishes at Willow Springs. You will be greatly missed.


Lovejoy Proud,


Courtney Halpin

Such an incredible tradition continued this year.  The 5th vs. 6th grade basketball game was very entertaining and left the 6th graders with bragging rights.
