Schools of the Week: Creekside Elementary, Fairview High

  • Published February 1, 2022

    The Schools of the Week spotlight is shining on Creekside Elementary and Fairview High. We asked the principals of both schools to share a few things that make their schools special.

    Creekside Elementary

    • Creekside Elementary opened in the 2019-20 school year, but its building didn't officially open until January 2020.
    • CSES is the district's newest elementary school and is home to more than 800 students.
    • Creekside Elementary students may participate in several school activities, including robotics, the Math Olympiad, student council and more.
  • Kindergarten and first-grade students at Creekside Elementary looked a little different January 26.

    In celebration of the 100th day of school, students dressed up as 100-year-olds, wore shirts with a hundred items on them and completed challenges involving the number 100. It was a day to remember for the students.

    "You always know it's a win when you hear the words 'best day ever' over and over again," said CSES first grade teacher Nina Norris. "Students had to work in cooperative groups and use all 100 pieces they were given to accomplish a task. It's a day that never disappoints!"

  • Fairview High 

    • Fairview High is the second oldest high school in the county.
    • It was the first school in Williamson County to offer the Advanced Placement Capstone program.
    • The school's Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps Raiders Program is a national champion.
  • Students in Fairview High Student Support Services teacher Kiara Harper's class are getting a hands-on lesson about chemical reactions.

    During class January 28, Harper and her students created slime using glue, shaving cream, baking soda, saline solution and a little food coloring. Earlier in the week, students experimented with other chemical reactions, including baking soda and vinegar.

    "We made some slime, and it was really fun," said FVHS student Eythan Oneal. "We played with it when we were done, and it was really sticky."
