Mr. Carl Cruthis

Welcome to Blue Creek Elementary School for the 2023-2024 school year! 

I am excited to join the Blue Creek Community this year, it is good to be back in the Southwest area! Please let me introduce myself to you, I am Carl Cruthis, principal at Blue Creek Elementary School. I have served in education for seventeen years, eight as a middle school band director in Greensboro, NC, six as assistant principal at Southwest High School, and the last three years as principal. I have three children who attend Dixon Middle School and Coastal Elementary and a lovely wife who has served in education as a 1st grade teacher.

As we prepare for the new year, I encourage you to do the following in preparation:

We are building this year's theme around 'Discover Your POWER: Purpose, Ownership, Wonder, Effort, and Reflection'. I want you to be part of the movement of discovering your Bronco's POWER this year! Be sure to connect with our PTO at their Facebook Page, or reach out at BlueCreekPTO@gmail.com.

I can't wait to see our Broncos, but until then, enjoy summer break and rest up!

Best regards,

Carl Cruthis, Principal
