This page is to help relay important information and dates happening at Minter Creek Elementary school in Gig Harbor, Washington

Operating as usual


We would love to see you at our PTA meeting next week!


We are sooooooo grateful to Ashley Aston for our beautiful new artwork in the "Chillville" room at Minter Creek. The office staff worked up a plan to provide a calm space for kids who need a moment for any reason. They asked us to purchase what was needed for the room and find someone who would be willing to paint some artwork on the walls. Of course, we reached out to Peninsula Hands On Art to see if someone could be found, and Karmen connected us with PHOA Board Member, Ashley. She far exceeded our expectations and we are so thankful for the time and expertise she gave to our school!

We've had an AMAZING couple of weeks! We kicked off Girls on the Run, helped bring a Snapology assembly to our students, and brought SkyDome to our school. A HUGE thank you to Paige Schulte for making the SkyDome possible. It was a big hit!!!


Key Pen Parks is putting on a really fun event on May 4th during our spring fundraiser. This is a great way to get out and get exercise during Move with Minter. More info to come! Registration is open now! 🙌


It's time! We can't wait to welcome our new families next year!

Online Kindergarten registration for the 2024-2025 school year is now open! Registering early allows you to find out about all of the transition activities we have planned in the spring and summer! To register, you will need to upload the following documents or turn them in to your child’s school:

🍎 Proof of residency, like a utility bill;
🍎 Student birth certificate; and
🍎 Student medically verified immunization records.

Go to to begin the online process. Families may contact any of our schools to schedule a time to stop in to use a Chromebook if you do not have a device, have connectivity issues, or need support completing the form. We are excited to welcome the Class of 2037! 🎒🖍🏫✏️


We hope to see you at our next meeting!


We hope to see you at our PTA meeting tomorrow from 6-7 pm at Minter!


We hope you can join us! Sorry the meeting falls on Valentine's Day this month!

Minter Creek Yearbook 02/05/2024

Hey, everyone! I am heading up the yearbook this year, along with the help of a few other Minter parents. I wanted to share this google photos link with all of you! If you have pictures from SCHOOL EVENTS AT MINTER CREEK (not extra curricular activities, that will be a separate post as the end of the year gets closer) I would love for you to share by uploading them to the attached google photos link. Im hoping to be able to represent all students and all events from every grade. Thanks so much. And if you have any issues with the link, please reach out.

Minter Creek Yearbook 14 new items added to shared album


**Update: Our play is tomorrow! All tickets are by donation and 100% of the proceeds go to the Minter Creek PTA!

We are excited to kick off our first school play since before COVID! Our students will perform at Vaughn Elementary on Saturday, January 20th at 3:00 pm. Tickets will be available (donations appreciated but not necessary) at the door on the day of the event.

Missoula Theater Co. is also going to provide a full school assembly to introduce Minter students to theater in a fun and engaging way!

We have been able to bring so many fun events to our school this year thanks to the generosity of our community! 🙌

We have the best principal!! We are so grateful for Mr. Hering and everything he does for our school. Minter Creek would be a very different place without him. When we talk about how amazing our school is, we're not talking about the building or the programs - we're talking about the people who interact with our kids every single day. Most kids don't have memories of playing games with their principal, and most parents don't know what it's like to have a principal in their corner when a student needed help. We are grateful that our kids get to experience a principal who cares. Thank you, Mr. Hering!

The Spooky Fall Festival has once again come and gone and it was so much fun, but most importantly we raised almost $8,000 for our amazing school. I’m so happy that we have such a great group of parents, teachers and administrators all working together to make our school such a great place. From our principal, teachers, librarian and school counselor who let kids hit them in the face with “pies” all night, to having a community that was willing to donate so graciously to our silent auction, to the 5th grade class who worked hard on their bake sale and pizza table, to all of the parents who decorated doors and volunteered their time, to the high school students who handed out candy all night long, to the dad who creates our super popular spooky tunnel, and to the dj who donated his time to entertain everyone. And last but certainly not least, THANK YOU to everyone who attended this event, our success would not have been possible without you! It was a super fun night and I’m so thankful that I get to be a part of this amazing community.
