Principal's Message


Welcome to Oak Creek Elementary School, home of the W.I.S.E. Owls! I have had the pleasure of working at Oak Creek since the day we opened our doors in 2002, and it is an honor to continue to serve our Oak Creek community as principal again this school year.

Like all IUSD schools, Oak Creek prides itself on fostering high levels of academic achievement while supporting students’ physical, social, and emotional growth. As a staff of lifelong learners, we are committed to serving our school community in four main areas:


Our identity and momentum are sustained in part by our commitment to the W.I.S.E. Owl school-wide behavior system and the procedural guidelines detailed in this handbook. Please take time to read the information and review pertinent sections with your children.  Additional information and updates regarding school activities, programs and policies will be disseminated throughout the year via email and our website (

We look forward to working with you and your child to facilitate the development of good character, effective work habits, academic excellence and an inclination toward lifelong learning with a growth mindset. Have a wonderful school year W.I.S.E. Owls!
