    Important Update From Nutrition Services

    Beginning Monday, November 1, Nutrition Services will discontinue the second entrée option at the elementary buildings. Only the hot entrée will be offered each day.  This change is due to staffing and food item shortages. When we are able, and staffing is improved, we will add back in the second entrée option.

icon A message from Principal Cumings

Welcome to Rock Creek Elementary School!

I served for twenty years as an administrator in the Waukee School District; 8 years as an elementary principal and 12 years as Waukee’s Executive Director of Student Services. Upon leaving Waukee, I spent a year providing educational consulting services to area school districts and Heartland AEA. I was then selected, by the Des Moines Public School District, to serve for two years as the principal at Smouse Opportunity School. I am currently a part time Mediator and IEP Facilitator for the state of Iowa through the Iowa Department of Education. My husband, Michael, and I and our two sons moved to Ankeny in 1988, at which time I was hired by the Ankeny School District to teach special education at Ankeny High School. After four years at AHS, I transferred to Northeast Elementary where I taught 3rd grade. I’m pleased, as a longtime Ankeny resident, to return to Ankeny Schools as Principal at Rock Creek. My greatest joy, as a leader, is to create a vibrant and welcoming school environment in which each student and staff member is valued and given the opportunity to excel. Toward that end I look forward to building a relationship with the students, families, and staff at Rock Creek Elementary. It’s truly an honor to be a part of the Rock Creek family!
