Welcome Letter from Principal

Will Esters

Dear Park Creek Family,

Each year since I have been principal at our school, I have written a letter to you expressing my sincere interest in increasing the academic performance of our students. To improve learning for students, teachers must first learn new things themselves – new ways of delivering content and new ways to hold students’ interests. We have been working hard at Park Creek, and our progress reflects our efforts.

It is because of the dedicated efforts of our parents, students, and staff that our CCRPI score – the score used by the Georgia Department of Education to rank all public schools in the state – has increased significantly. In 2016, Park Creek’s CCRPI score was 59.5. In 2017, our score increased to 62.2. In 2018, we improved again to reach a score of 74.4, and last year, in 2019, our score increased yet again to an 80.9. We can all be proud of these results.

Unfortunately, the 2019-2020 school year had some things in store for us that none of us could anticipate. The pandemic that closed our schools and moved us into digital learning also kept us from taking this year’s assessments. I believe strongly that we would have seen another increase in our CCRPI score this year.

Please know that all of us at Park Creek are eager to take on whatever challenges the 2020-2021 school year holds for us. Also, know that we will continue our focus on academic achievement. Our students deserve every positive outcome and opportunity that good education can afford them, and we (parents and teachers) have an obligation to do everything we can to provide the learning that will propel them forward.

Thank you for staying positive and holding the course. Together, we will have a spectacular year at Park Creek!

Warm regards,

Will Esters

Principal, Park Creek
