  • Clear Creek Middle School qualifies for free breakfast and lunch for all students.

    See the district webpage for more information.

    AT ALL SCHOOLS, a la carte purchases have a cost to the family and must be pre-paid by account or in cash.  A la carte purchases include milk without a school meal, bottled water, chips, cookies, and other snack and beverage items that are not part of a school meal.

    All students have a meal account that follows them throughout their career at GBSD. This account is accessed when getting a meal using the student ID number, which is also the child’s PIN. Money may be added to the account by sending cash or check with your student to the cafeteria in the morning. Checks should be made out to Gresham-Barlow Nutrition Services. You may also add money by credit card using mymealtime.com. MealTime charges a small transaction fee for online payments.

Ms. Elise Catanese

Hello Clear Creek Families and Community,

Welcome to Clear Creek Middle School. As the principal of our middle school, it is my personal leadership mission to create a school environment where everyone feels a sense of belonging, is welcome, and above all, feels safe. I believe that every student, staff member, and parent/family should feel valued and respected within our school community.

In addition to fostering a welcoming and safe environment, I am committed to promoting equity, engagement, and inclusion throughout our school. Equity will be at the forefront of our work. We are dedicated to ensuring that every student has equitable access to opportunities, resources, and support, regardless of their background or circumstances. This means ensuring that each and every student has access to high-quality education that will help them reach their full potential. Engagement is about creating dynamic and interactive learning experiences that ignite students' curiosity and passion for learning. And inclusion means embracing diversity, celebrating differences, and ensuring that every voice is heard and valued.

I recognize that achieving equity, engagement, and inclusion requires a collective effort. We view our parents/guardians and our community members as valued partners on this educational journey. Your involvement is not just encouraged; it's essential. Together, we can create a learning ecosystem that supports our students, fostering a seamless connection between school and home.

By adopting a school culture that embodies these principles, I am confident that we can create an environment where every student thrives academically, socially, and emotionally. Together, we will celebrate the successes and honor the diversity that exists within our community.
