Crestwood is anxiously awaiting the completion of our new addition and expanded classroom space. Our open space is also benefiting by the planting of new shrubs, trees and plants along our entire property. This will visually improve our landscape and help beautify the Crestwood neighborhood.
Along with our new construction, we will also be welcoming our youngest students. We are pleased to have been selected as an Early Head Start School, which will enable us to have an educational impact on our youngest community members.
Since the majority of our student population walks to school, we continue to stress safety to our students regarding safe walking habits. We also review with them their responsibility of respecting property of our neighbors. We believe that all children learn when provided a safe, nurturing environment. We appreciate all of the continued support the Crestwood community gives to our school.
Last year, The PTA raised a little over $8,000. We used this money to purchase 3 risers for the music department, pay for 3 teacher luncheons, purchase display boards for the 6th grade projects, pay for the SOL Pass, provide free books to all students through Reading is Fundamental, have the fall ice cream social / dance, offset the cost of field trips, and assist with funds for the 6th grade party. We would love to do even more for the school! We have a lot of fun activities planned for this year, but that will require fund raising. We do hope to do this without any door to door selling if we raise enough with our “No Sell” Fundraiser! We are already collecting box tops, so please start sending those in. Also, Giant A+ registration has opened. Please remember to re-register your card to Crestwood. Our code is 02068.
