Tuesday marked the end of a bittersweet milestone for a Meridian teacher. Many gathered to honor Willow Creek Elementary teacher, Kathryn Payte and watch her last kindergarten class graduate. Willow Creek Elementary Principal, Jared Christensen said,” While she's been here, we've called her the 'Kindergarten Whisperer' because she speaks kindergarten better than any teacher I've ever seen.” For the full story and video, please visit: https://www.ktvb.com/article/news/local/meridian-teacher-kathryn-payte-retires/277-6b82e45d-b128-413f-8552-001182f85c2a?fbclid=IwAR398G5HuSFw1VxKm9VnK5MwFaxLYEpZwcfdcBCfCq37lQPU3uyu7w44_BE
We had an amazing Teacher Appreciation Week. Thank you to all the parents who brought treats and snacks all week long for the staff. It was amazing! As a special surprise, the staff lounge was remodeled! Thank you to Amber Wallace for all of her hard work in creating the design, finding volunteers to help with the work, and sourcing all the furniture and design elements. Thank you to all the families who donated to the project.
Students at Willow Creek Elementary in Meridian knocked it out of the ball park. They recently donated more than 13,000 food items to St. Luke’s Children’s. There were so many food items, Principal Jared Christensen had to rent a 10-foot truck and it took an hour to unload. The food has gone to St. Luke's Cystic Fibrosis Center of Idaho, the food pantry at St. Luke's Children's Pediatrics: Caldwell, teens in the partial hospitalization program and waiting areas for parents at St. Luke’s Children’s Hospital. It is amazing, thank you Willow Creek!
