Meet Our Principal

Welcome to Maple Creek Elementary where every day in every way, Huskies get better and better, and BETTER!  It is my goal as the principal to get to know ALL of our students and families, and to work closely to build upon our Triangle of Success.   Together we can ensure that Maple Creek provides a supportive environment in which each student reaches their highest academic potential in an engaging, stimulating, safe, and respectful environment. 

Our staff at Maple Creek is just one of the many reasons this is such a special place.  Our entire team, from our classified to our certificated members, is student-centered, caring, and motivated toward the success of ALL students.  Our teaching staff demonstrates a relentless energy toward constant improvement.  A climate of high expectations, hard work, and honor is established.  Maple Creek teachers demonstrate a true passion and dedication to maintaining a strong academic program to ensure that all students meet or exceed the California State Standards.   Our Maple Creek teachers are a truly committed team of professionals who will provide every child with the best education possible. 

We value relationships with our parents and therefore we strive to maintain open lines of communication.  There are many ways to be kept informed of our programs, events and upcoming activities.  Our Maple Creek Chronicle is sent home weekly on Peachjar, as well as Remind text messages, and the website and our Facebook are updated regularly.  It is our hope that you will find there are many resources that will allow you to quickly access school information. Additionally on this site, you will find email links to our staff members as just another avenue for communication.  It is the winning combination of our dedicated teachers, parents, and students that creates a successful school climate and enables Maple Creek to be a great place for children.  There are many ways for parents to get involved such as our SART (School Assessment and Review Team) committee, SSC (School Site Council), ELAC (English Language Advisory Committee), and/or Parent Club to name a few. 

The students are at the heart of every decision that is made at Maple Creek and they are why we are here. Our goal is that students excel in Mind (academically), Body, and Spirit. Maple Creek has a very diverse student population and our staff strives to create an environment where students feel safe, comfortable, and where ALL students are provided with opportunities to realize their greatest potential.  Maple Creek continues to be a top performing school in the Clovis Unified School District.  This achievement wouldn’t be possible without the support of our parents. 

I welcome you to find out more about Maple Creek. There will be many exciting things going on to continue to develop the mind, body, and spirit of our Huskies!
