President's Message

Dear West Creek Families,

We hope that you had a fun and restful summer with your family and friends. We are excited to start another great school year at West Creek Academy and would like to welcome all our new students at Fun For Fours, Kindergarten, and other grades, as well as our continuing Elementary students and their families.

We have already been working hard planning for the school year. We appreciate your support and encourage you to volunteer and be a part of building unforgettable memories for your kids. Whether you can spare 30 minutes or 30 hours a week, your time is valuable and we will appreciate any time you can share with us. Below are some of our events for the fall for potential volunteer opportunities.

We look forward to getting to know your family and having another memorable school year at West Creek Academy!

Direct Donations

Welcome! We are looking forward to another great year filled with exciting academic and extracurricular activities. As you know, West Creek Academy is one of the top ranked elementary schools in the Saugus Union School District, despite being only open for a few years. We were only able to achieve such success with your support!

As we start the year, the DIRECT DONATION fundraiser is kicking off. Our goal is to raise $90,000 with 100% participation. Last year we raised $77,800 with 76% participation. No donation is to big or to small. We are confident that we can achieve our goal.

Please review the information sheet and pledge form that came home with your child this week. We look forward to receiving it back from you. You can return the form with your child in class, or drop it off at the office. If you have more questions, please contact Susan Lee or Esther Jang using the contact form to the right (choose "Fundraising" for your recipient).

Thanking You in Advance!
