    Dear Parents and Students,

    Welcome to Carmel Creek School. Carmel Creek is one of seven elementary schools in the Solana Beach School District. Our school serves Kindergarten to 3rd grade. This is my 27th year as an educator with 14 wonderful years serving in the Solana Beach School District.  I am greatly honored to be a member of the Carmel Creek community. Our entire staff is committed to supporting each students individual growth in social emotional development and academic achievement.  

    The Carmel Creek community is exceptional! The PTO (Parent Teacher Organization) and SBSF (Solana Beach Schools Foundation) work closely to plan special events, assemblies, develop enrichment opportunities (e.g. school garden, fun run, spring glow family dance, ride-n-roll bike safety, red ribbon week, heritage festival, cougars in motion and literacy enrichment), STREAM programs and Discovery Labs. The partnership between our staff and parents is strong. Together we work toward promoting the traditions of high academic standards, communication, leadership, empathy, service learning and global thinking.

    My door is always open. Should you have any questions or concerns during the school year please don’t hesitate to contact me directly at (858) 794-4454 or email me.

    I'm looking forward to a wonderful 2020-2021 school year!

    Lisa Ryder, Principal
