Welcome Letter from Principal

Will Esters

Dear Park Creek Family and Friends,

Each year since I have been principal at our school, I have written a letter to you expressing our school’s dedication to increasing academic performance. Because of the dedicated efforts of our parents, students, and staff, Park Creek’s CCRPI score – the score used by the Georgia Department of Education to rank all public schools in the state – has increased significantly each year. We have grown from a rating of 59.5 (F) in 2016 to 80.9 (B) in 2019. Because of the pandemic, we do not have scores to report from the 2020 and 2021 school years; however, I am confident we would have seen continuing improvement if we had received scores.

This year, in addition to continuing our focus on academic achievement, we will also work toward building our students’ social skills to help them overcome difficulties they may face in their lives. As a staff, we will be learning information and strategies to help students move beyond tough circumstances – some brought on by the pandemic. This will be the first year of a two-year process for our school to achieve Trauma Skilled Schools Certification, and we are excited to begin this important work.

The past couple years have been especially challenging because of global circumstances outside our control. We are eager to see what the new school year holds, and we hope with all our hearts to get back to some semblance of normalcy in school.

Thank you for staying the course with your continuing support for your child. Together, we will achieve incredible things this year at Park Creek.

Warm regards,

Will Esters


Principal, Park Creek
