PRINCIPAL/PARENT OPEN MEETINGS from 9:30-10:30 every Wednesday               


July 22, 2019


Dear Parents and Guardians,


                Welcome Back to Trout Creek School and the 2019-20 school year! I hope your summer was filled with lots of fun family activities, and you were able to enjoy some quality time at home with your family and friends making memories for a lifetime.


Remember to watch your child’s backpack or folder for the weekly school bulletin, the “Home School Connection” which comes home to you on Fridays. It will have upcoming dates for the week ahead as well as lunch menus and other valuable information. Also remember to watch the school calendar for Friday early outs and days with “No School”.


We have scheduled our annual Back to School Open House for Tuesday, August 27th. Please come have some lemonade and a sweet treat, meet your child’s teacher and see where your student is spending his or her days! You will also have an opportunity to check out our new computer lab (paid for by the new Tax Levy), and learn about using Infinite Campus to keep up to date with student grades, assignments, and projects.  As always communication between home and school is vital in education. Come and see what’s happening!


Another date of importance to put on your fall schedule is Friday November 8th, for parent teacher conferences.  Keep in mind Infinite Campus will always have the most up to date information regarding student grades if you need to meet with teachers sooner than the typical conference date.   All teachers will be available during scheduled meeting times during Parent Teacher Conferences to review grades and discus any questions or concerns you may have regarding your child’s education and socialization up to this point in the school year


As your child’s school principal, I continue to always invite your input and suggestions, and I hope that you find our faculty and staff to be a helpful and accommodating educational team. Our goal is to partner with you in the successful mission of our school - we have a shared responsibility to develop the potential of each student as fully as possible. The education of all students will be fostered by a nurturing, challenging, disciplined, and safe environment, so their performance is a positive reflection upon themselves, as well as a diverse and changing society as a whole.


This year I have a time BUILT-IN to my schedule every week to invite parents into my office – this “parent hour” is on Wednesday mornings from 9:30 to 10:30 should you have any ideas or concerns to share.


We, the Trout Creek team, the entire faculty and staff, look forward to our amazing 2019-20 school year! Our staff invites you to join us in the education of your child. Please let us know if we may be of assistance to you and your student(s) in any way.


Thank you, in advance, for your continued support of your child’s education.




Mrs. Debbie J. Phillips, Trout Creek School Principal
