  • Summer bridge with Imagine Learning

    Spartan Students and Families-

    In an effort to provide continued learning opportunities for students during the summer months, Fayette County Public Schools will offer Summer Bridge -- independent learning for preschool through eighth grade. The online program we will be using is called Imagine Learning . Continued math and language literacy learning will help reduce learning gaps and provide structured activities for children to complete with little or no assistance.

    Students are able to go ahead and start using Imagine Learning now and will have access to Imagine Learning all summer long. Your student’s math and language arts teachers have posted login information for Imagine Learning in their Google Classrooms.

  • 2020 Tates Creek boys' soccer information

    From Coach Gross: 2020 Tates Creek Boys' Soccer Season is almost here!  We are excited to start thinking about our 2020 fall season.  The program is coming off a great 2019 season where we were able to capture the 43rd District Championship! An accomplishment that hadn't been done in 10 years.  We hope to continue to improve our program and want to be sure everyone knows about the 2020 tryouts. Due to the ongoing circumstances we have not been able to set the exact dates and times for our tryouts, but we want to make sure we have your contact information, so we can provide you with the most up-to-date information as we distribute it.  If you are interested in receiving information about tryouts please email Coach Albert Gross.  In your email please include: parent name, child name, phone number, home address and email address.  Having your contact information will be very important as we move closer to the season, due to the numerous forms that have to be completed prior to your child being able to tryout.
