Dear Crestmont Elementary School Families:
Welcome to the 2017-2018 school year at Crestmont Elementary! I hope you have enjoyed your summer vacation and are looking forward to the new school year. I look forward to working with the families and staff to continue to build a strong academic program at Crestmont. Please make certain that your child is at school on time and stays the entire day. Instruction is vitally important to student learning. We are really focusing this year on reading each night and to develop a passion for reading. We are now a MASTER School, which means we will be focusing on Mathematics, Art, Science, Technology, Enrichment and Reading. I will share more information with you soon. Our faculty and staff are excited about the future of Crestmont. I am honored to be a part of such an amazing school community.
Everyone here at Crestmont has been busy preparing for the new school year, and they are rested and ready to begin. The custodians and district personnel worked over the summer to make sure our campus was ready for the first day. We have a new parking lot and a new playground area for our families to enjoy.
The first day of school is an exciting day for everyone involved, and with the first day comes a lot of information and paperwork. The Crestmont School Parent Handbook is posted on our website. The handbook is there to answer possible questions you may have. If you do not have access to the Internet and need a hard copy, please stop by the office and we will be happy to give you one.
Many of you are involved in the school, and I cannot thank you enough for your time and dedication to Crestmont. Without you, many of the things at Crestmont would not be possible. If you would like to be more involved, I encourage you to become a volunteer in the classroom and/or join our Parent Teacher Club (PTC). Our PTC does an amazing job organizing events and they could use your help. I would like to see a parent each day in the copy room supporting our teachers in this way so that they can focus on curriculum and instruction.
For the families returning to Crestmont, thank you for your continued support of the school and community. To our new families joining us this year, I would like to welcome you to Crestmont. If you ever have questions or concerns during the school year, please contact the staff at any time. We look forward to an amazing 2017-2018 school year.
