Principal's Message

from the principal's desk



Dear Aspen Creek Community,

I can’t tell you how excited I am to officially join your community as principal of Aspen Creek! With an already committed staff, a supportive community, and highly-engaged students, I know we will partner in meaningful, significant learning. 

As a community, we will cultivate relationships, create vision, and continue to develop excellent programs for our children. My hope is to partner in building robust, innovative educational and social-emotional learning opportunities at Aspen Creek PK-8. I will strive to work alongside the talented staff to support them as they engage all students, and I will seek to foster meaningful partnerships with the parent community. Most importantly, I hope to help develop our students to become amazing learners who are curious about their community and the world. 

I recognize that transitions in leadership can be challenging for any school and require a high degree of trust between the community and the principal. I look forward to understanding the needs and desires of the communities that comprise Aspen Creek (students, parents, and staff) before working together to develop a collective vision for what’s next. I believe in leading with transparency and open-mindedness. By including the voices of all, we can create a culture of student success.

As part of our transition to the new school year, our staff is working to finalize the details of all the necessary Back To School information.  Please be on the lookout for much more information to come in the days ahead.

In partnership,

Nick Vanderpol
