Fishing Creek Elementary School is like two schools in one! Building I (grades K-2) is connected to Building II (grades 3-5) by the “Tunnel of Kindness.” Building II is also home to the school office, the health room, the library, and the cafeteria. We’re separated by some distance, but that doesn’t stop us from being a united Fishing Creek school community made up of approximately 460 students and over 50 staff members!
Our students receive core instruction in Math, ELA, Science, and Social Studies. They also receive instruction in special area subjects including Music, Library, Art, and Physical Education. 4th
graders may also choose to participate in band/orchestra and all of our 5th
grade students sing in the chorus. Our school board approved curriculum is based on the PA Core and Academic standards in each content area. Find out more about our curriculum, instruction, and assessment on our district website at https://www.wssd.k12.pa.us/Curriculum.aspx
Family engagement is important to the success of our all of our students. Fishing Creek has an active PTO that supports students, teachers, and our entire school community. There are always opportunities for our families to get involved with the PTO and participate in regular PTO family activities. Also, classroom volunteers are welcomed. If you are interested in volunteering in your student’s classroom, please contact your student’s classroom teacher and then contact the school office to obtain your volunteer clearance.
The goal of every staff member at Fishing Creek is to create a caring and nurturing atmosphere in which all students can thrive and learn. We maintain high expectations for our students, but find many ways to celebrate, have fun, and experience the joys of elementary school!
