Welcome to Dexter McCarty Middle School
Home of the Hornets
Help us spread the word! Tonight’s Barlow vs. Gresham football game is being moved to Sandy High School. The district and the school made the decision to move the game after discovering Barlow High School’s scoreboard is not working due to the rainy weather. Sandy High School is located at 37400 Bell Street, Sandy, OR 97055. There is plenty of parking at Sandy High School—there will be no shuttle as originally planned.
The AVID Student Social is canceled for tonight, Friday, October 20.

Kelly Creek is a positive learning community where high expectations are a given. The staff and parents have developed a rich sense of the importance of learning in a diverse environment where all talents are valued, and resources are used responsibly.
Our overarching goals include improvement in student achievement, early literacy, developing responsibility, and improving social/emotional learning.
- Improve student performance on state and district assessments.
- Make early reading literacy a focus and be certain that all children are readers.
- Continue with aggressive communication with the parents and the community.
- Create a differentiated approach to curriculum and instruction.
- Continue to work effectively as instructional teams to improve our ability to meet the needs of our students.
- Improve student skills in the use of technology.
- Improve student skills in socialization, emotional development, and responsible behavior.
- Continue strong efforts in support of conservation.
With these goals, we will continue our student incentive and management plan, our revised plan for developing social/emotional learning, and a continued focus on differentiated instruction. Early reading instruction will be a primary focus for our school site council.
