New Opportunities

by Rob Kinder on 01/05/15

The new year is filled with abundant opportunities.  All students are welcome to join a small group.  Groups focus on friendship, academic, and leadership skills and we have support groups for families experiencing changes (Banana Splits) and deployed parents (Patriots).  The Chess and Game Club meets every Friday after school and we recently acquired over a dozen new games.  Ski Club begins in January and lasts until Spring Break.  There are a wealth of clubs and activities available to all students.  Please contact the office for more information.

Box Tops and Red Ribbon

by Rob Kinder on 10/20/14

Crawford's students are currently collecting Box Tops and Labels for Education.  The grade that collects the most items will earn a bonus recess.

October is tobacco, alcohol and illegal drug prevention month.  The students are learning about the potential dangers of these harmful substances and, as always, the students are encouraged to talk to their parents.  Every student that signs Crawford's drug free pledge will earn a red ribbon, bracelet, and a color changing pencil.
