November News & Important Dates


Dear Spring Creek families,

It is hard to believe that we are approaching the holiday season and it’s already November!  We have had an extremely exciting, fun filled fall here at Spring Creek and I would like to take this opportunity to provide updates as we enter the month of November.

Envision the Future of North Eugene Schools

 Help shape the vision for our schools! Eugene School District 4J is working to support and strengthen schools across the district, starting in the North Eugene region. Your input is important.

Parents, students and community members are invited to come to a community event and engage in 4J’s North Region Visioning Process. Participants will collaborate in energizing design activities and share their views to help guide future decisions, as our schools seek to better serve our community’s diverse students and families. This is the next step after the survey you may have completed last spring.

 Choose a night and come share your voice:

  • Mon., November 6, 5:30–7:30 p.m., Madison Middle School, 875 Wilkes Dr.
  • Tues., December 5, 5:30–7:30 p.m., Kelly Middle School, 850 Howard Ave.
  • Spanish: Thu., November 16, 5:30–7:30 p.m., River Road/El Camino del Río Elementary School, 120 W. Hilliard Lane

If you have questions about the events or the North Region Visioning Process, please call 4J Instructional Services at 541-790-7550.
