Degrees and Certifications:
It is a pleasure to welcome you to Arbor Creek Elementary home of the Otters AND 2016 Rita Blitt Kindest School Award.
I am pleased to announce that Arbor Creek has been awarded grant dollars to move several important, innovative projects forward. Thanks to a grant from the Olathe Education Foundation, Arbor Creek has launched a kids’ version of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. This new program termed The Leader In Me is an important change effort building leadership skills into each and every student. In the months and years to come, Arbor Creek Otters will take on more and more of the leadership opportunities that are often only provided to adults.
Music teacher, Jamie Trumpp, collaborated with several colleagues to acquire steel drums and ukuleles for every student in a typically sized classroom. Upper grade students will enjoy learning to use both instruments to promote melodic growth.
Second grade teacher, Lisa Haines, has written for and received two grants from the Walmart Corporation to further her students’ study.
Fifth grade teacher, Sheila Cabanas, has been awarded a grant to study the ways that food can be grown in unusual places with her “window farming” project.
We are proud of our entrepreneurial spirit in our teachers at Arbor Creek, who are always striving for new ways that students can learn and grow.
