On June 7th, 2019 HC held their 3rd Annual Color Run. We’ve raised over $9100! (70% is profit). Honey Creek students and staff were blasted with color, enjoyed popsicles, and celebrated a job well done. Kudos to all the volunteers that make events like this possible! Thank you to all the parents, teachers, students, family and friends of Honey Creek for helping us raise these funds. All profit will be dedicated toward art, technology, and the many PAC-sponsored activities our students enjoy each year. If you are interested in being part of the PAC? Join us as we plan for next school year! Ask in the school office for information.

Honey Creek students showcased their musical talents at our Annual Music Recital on June 4, 2019. Thank you to the students for sharing their talents. We wish to extend our appreciation to their violin teacher – Ms. Pera and their piano teacher – Ms. Holterman for their dedication to our students.
Staff, students and parents gathered to recognize students that are members of Honey Creek’s Accelerated Reading 100 Point Club. The Accelerated Reader program is a computerized program that tests reading comprehension. Students select books on their reading level, read independently, and take a comprehension test on a computer. Each book is worth a certain number of points based on its length and reading level. Fifty-six students earned over 100 points and were rewarded with “Lunch with the Principal” at Old Country Buffet. Collectively Honey Creek students passed 14,674 tests this year, a record number for Honey Creek’s 27 years of using the Accelerated Reading Program. Congratulations to our hard-working students; they set reading goals and achieved them!
Ms. Chawla and Ms. Biesterveld received 2018-19 Title 1 School of Recognition for “Beating the Odds” award.
