Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year! I am so excited to get to know both
you and your child.
 
Since I will spend so much time with your child, I thought I would share a
little about me. I was born in Iowa, but eventually found my way to the San
Francisco Bay Area with my family where I attended high school and college.
I graduated from the University of Southern California (USC) and am certified
to work with English as Second Language students and Gifted and Talented students.
 
My husband and I have two children, Sanna is in 11th grade at Tomball Memorial
and is an avid volleyball player and Ericka is will be in 8th grade at WillowWood Jr. High
and loves Cheer and Basketball!
 
I hope you will find this website helpful and informative. I am always
looking for suggestions so if you would like to see something added, please
let me know. You can email me directly from the link located on the home
page.
 
I hope to make this a great year for all of us. If you have any questions or
concerns, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Information for Holiday Parties

Parents,

If you have not had your ID scanned at Willow Creek for the 2018-2019 school year, you may stop by the campus before December 17th and have your ID scanned to save time waiting in line the day of the event.  Your ID must be scanned each school year. 

Reservations can be made by completing the Google form online https://goo.gl/forms/F5HMBu640ZQw3Zs62 .  Badges will be printed and available at a designated table when you arrive.  Visitors who have not made reservations will need to wait in a very long, time consuming line and could miss part of the event.  No exceptions will be made.

All visitors should be prepared to present a Photo ID even if you have made reservations.  Once you arrive for the event please check in at the designated tables outside.
