PaulWenger-editedWelcome to Jordan Creek Elementary! We are excited that you are here and look forward to working with all of the wonderful students and families that are a part of our school community. Jordan Creek Elementary serves approximately 750 students in preschool through sixth grade.

In the fall of 2019, after five years of being on our Leader in Me journey, we were proud to be recognized as a Leader in Me Lighthouse school, joining just 11 other Lighthouse schools in Iowa and 519 worldwide at the time. Leader in Me is an evidence-based, comprehensive school improvement model developed by Franklin Covey that empowers our students with leadership and life skills they need to thrive in the 21st century. We focus on eight different leadership habits, including:

    1. Be Proactive
    2. Begin with the End in Mind
    3. Put First Things First
    4. Think Win-Win
    5. Seek First to Understand, Then be Understood
    6. Synergize
    7. Sharpen the Saw
    8. Find Your Voice

Our building mission statement drives all that we do daily in growing leaders at Jordan Creek, as we believe every student we serve is a leader!  “We will lead with compassion, learn with a purpose, and make a difference.”

Feel free to stop by, call, or email me at any time with your questions, concerns, or suggestions.
