Our school raised $746.44 during our PJammin' Fundraiser! Proceeds will be donated to the American Childhood Cancer Foundation. We are proud of all the students who participated and 5th grader, Sofia who organized the fundraiser as a community service project. 

Thank you!

Thanks to all the grandparents and students who joined us for the Grandparent's Breakfast. What an enjoyable event!

Extreme Energy!

Students in grades 2-5 participated in an exciting assembly focused on the forms of energy. 

From potential energy to (controlled) explosions, from thermal cameras to people-power, students were able to "see" where energy comes from, and where it ends up.

Throughout the school year, there will be professionals in our school and at athletic events capturing photos and video footage of students, staff, and volunteers. At times, you may also see a professional outside of buildings capturing aerial drone footage. The footage obtained will be used on school and district websites and social media platforms. It may also be used in school and district print and presentation materials. If you prefer that your child is NOT featured in school photos or videos, please fill out this form by September 14. 

Thank you,


We would like to recognize our teacher of the year, Anna White. Thank you for all that you do for our students!

SPE Mission/Vision

over 2 years ago

A mission statement describes in simple terms, but with carefully chosen, powerful words, the purpose of an organization. It can also describe what the organization intends to accomplish. Strawberry Park Elementary’s new adopted mission is Engaged Learners, Demonstrating Character. To support students in fulfilling the mission, teachers will focus on different character traits each trimester. 

During 2nd trimester, we will explore and learn about honesty. Honest people are trustworthy, dependable, and respected by others. An honest person tells the truth, regardless of the consequences. As America's first President, George Washington said in his Farewell Address, "honesty is always the best policy."

A Note from our ptic president

Hello Parents and Teachers of SPE! School is drawing near and we at PIC want to invite everyone to join us in helping make our school the best it can be! We are hosting a poll to figure out when is the best time for us to have our once a month PIC meetings- to where it would best accommodate everyone. We want YOU to be there with us and possibly the 8 am on the first Tuesday of every month might not have been the best time frame for a lot of you.
What works best? We want to hear your opinion so that we can get more volunteers involved! 

The options so far are as follows:

8:00am the first Tuesday of every month (as it has been held in the past years)

9:00am once a month

5:30pm once a month (or we could do a meeting 2-3 times a year at this time frame to allow some to join who can't meet in the morning times.)
