What is I Am Pine Creek?

I Am Pine Creek is a recognition and celebration of individuals who embody what it means to be a Pine Creek Eagle. We celebrate those with significant achievements, those who have overcome the odds against them, those whose successes may not be widely known, and those who make significant contributions to our community in some way. Our goal is to celebrate and recognize a broad and diverse representation of our community. Those chosen typically exemplify one or more of the Cornerstones of Creek Character (compassion, courage, integrity, perseverance, respect, responsibility). While individuals are generally students, they may also be alumni, staff, or former staff members.

What do you hope to leave behind?

The theme for the 2017-2018 school year was Living the Legacy. We asked the Class of 2018 about the legacy they hoped to leave behind, and this is what they said.
