New Students

Welcome to Creekside Middle School!

We are so happy that you are a part of our family.  There are a lot of things that we do to help new students feel more comfortable and to help make what can be a difficult transition, a positive experience.

The first thing that we ask all new students to do is fill out this Interest Inventory.  The inventory gives us some information about you, including what activities may be of interest to you.

We will be having quarterly meetings will all new students throughout the year. The dates of these meetings are listed below.  Pay attention to the announcements for a reminder and don’t miss out on the great food and/or prizes that are a part of each meeting!

  • Pizza Lunch on Friday, September 9, 2016
  • DEAR on Tuesday, November 15, 2016
  • DEAR on Tuesday, February 7, 2017
  • DEAR on Tuesday, April 25, 2017

**If you are a new student who comes sometime after the first week of school, you will have student ambassadors assigned to you who will help manage your transition into Creekside.


Here are a few links and documents that can help your transition be smooth (coming soon!):
