  • 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.

  • The State of Oregon now requires schools to notify parents of their immunization exemption rates for each required vaccine.  These rates will now be posted on our school’s website, in our school office, and sent home to parents twice a year.  The rates attached are the exemption rates as of last spring.  Schools are required to publish this information twice each school year.  Approximately the second week of March we will post the updated rates.  These new rates are collected and tallied in mid-February.

    El Estado de Oregón requiere que las escuelas notifiquen a los padres de las tasas de excepciones de inmunización para cada vacuna requerida. Estas nuevas tasas serán publicados en la página web de nuestra escuela, en la oficina de la escuela, y se enviaran a los padres dos veces al año. Las tasas adjuntas son las tasas de exención en cuanto la primavera pasada. Las escuelas están obligadas a publicar esta información dos veces cada año escolar. Aproximadamente la segunda semana de Marzo vamos a publicar las tarifas actualizadas. Estas nuevas tarifas son coleccionadas y contadas a mediados del mes de Febrero.

Ms. Elise Catanese

Hello Clear Creek Families and Community,

I am excited to be joining the Wildcat community and returning to Clear Creek Middle School as the new principal this year. I began my educational career in the Gresham-Barlow School district 23 years ago. Throughout my journey, I have taught science at both Damascus Middle School and Gordon Russell Middle School. After eight years of teaching, I transitioned to assistant principal at Clear Creek Middle School. I was at Clear Creek for two years before becoming the assistant principal at West Orient Middle School. I was at West Orient for thirteen years, three years as assistant principal and 10 years as principal. Now I have come full circle and returned to Clear Creek. I have to say that it feels great to be back and I’m looking forward to a new adventure. 

My main goal as an incoming principal is to create a positive school climate that is welcoming, safe, and fosters a sense of belonging for all students, staff, and the community. In addition, we will carry on with the great work, celebrations, and successes that have been part of the Clear Creek tradition.

Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. I look forward to meeting you all in the fall.

In the meantime, enjoy the remainder of your summer break!  


Elise Catanese

Principal, Clear Creek Middle School
