Penny Creek Elementary School 4

My kids completed the first year at Penny Creek and ready to move to grade 1 now. It was a learning experience for me also as to what to expect from school and in turn what school expects from kids and parents. The staff I have dealt with is great including the principal Ms. Heater. It is public school and we all know the limitations the school has. I will definitely encourage parent to get involved in the Natural Leader Program . This program is a great tool for parent to share , voice, advise what school can do better and great way to stay involved in school all the way till elementary years. As , a parent I know I have to put in time and effort and with the help and guiadance of the teachers, kids would do great. You just cannot expect teachers to do everything. If we wasn't good school, parent involvement is a must from academics to sports. Kids enjoyed the learning all other extra -curricular activites

Amount of homework: Just right

Gettind kids used to homework is always challenging. The practice of sitting everyday surely pays up long term. We all know kids do not like doing homework but it is important to start off early and the we typically had 1 page home 4 days a week.

My son was a student in Penny Creek till this year, when he started Gateway Middle School. He was in the HC program and all his teachers were awesome. Penny Creek has a very active PTA and they do lots of fun activities year around. My son really enjoyed the academics and extra-curricular activities, he made some great friends in the school too.
