Mid-January 2021 Update

Wildcat Families —

We’re off and running in 2021! We jumped right back into things after our long winter break and things are really rockin’ and rolling here at school. This week all our students participated in their Middle of Year (MOY) Acadience benchmark assessment. This assessment is used to measure student progress and growth in reading. I’ve quickly glanced at the results and it looks like our students are doing extremely well in their reading growth so far this year. Way to go students!! Way to go teachers!! Way to go parents!! 

Up to date information on Coronavirus and WCSD Schools can be found here: https://washk12.org/covid-19-info

We’re continuing to do all we can to stay healthy and stay in school. Please remember to send your child with a mask each day.

PAW Patrol – I’m pleased to announce that we are ready to invite our PAW (Pa’s Always Watching) Patrol back to school to enjoy “patroling” our lunch activities with their child. Please remember to wear your PAW Patrol t-shirt, check in at the front office, wear a mask while inside the school, and be ready to have some lunchtime fun with your child and many other students while outside on the playground area. We’ve missed having you here at our school and can’t wait to welcome you back!

Despite all the turmoil in the world today I can happily report that the future is bright. Our school is loaded with amazing young individuals. Thanks for sharing each of them with us each day. I speak for our entire school staff — we love your children. We love working with them, challenging them, and seeing them grow!

Keep smiling!

  • Jan 18 – NO SCHOOL – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day
  • Jan 20 – STEM Day – remember to ask your student about the schoolwide STEM activity

Penny Wars @ CVES

https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/rallyforriley2020

Crimson View Families —

I was approached earlier today about helping one of our former Wildcats.

I’m ALL in!!

Riley Slack is an absolute angel! Riley attended Crimson View last year as a 5th grader. She’s dealt with serious health challenges her entire life. Despite her challenges, she was always quick to smile and most happy when she could brighten some else’s day.

As a school we’re launching a PENNY WARS fundraiser to help out her family.

Penny Wars is a friendly fundraising competition between all our classes. A student may place coins in ANY jar … pennies and paper money increase the total points for that jar. Non-penny (nickel, dime, quarter) coins can be placed in any other jar to decrease that jar’s point total. Highest point total wins the Penny War competition between classes — ALL money donated will be given to Riley Slack’s family.

Let’s do this Wildcats!

Egg Drop Email

Wildcat Families –

We kicked off our annual Egg Drop fundraiser this morning with our students. A fun video was shared to help introduce the egg drop with your students and packets were handed out. The packet has all of the specific information and details on it, please read through that together with your child. Donations can be collected in the packet envelope or be paid online at our school website or directly at https://www.successfund.com/eggdrop2020. Packets will be due next Friday, Oct 2. Our goal is to have every packet returned! This year we are raising money to help fund all the amazing programs sponsored by our PTA such as: Battle of the Books, Meet the Masters Arts Program, Internet Safety, STEM night, as well as to help purchase STEM supplies for our teachers in their classroom! This is a great program where we learn together and support our school. Our students love to engineer their egg drop and enjoy a fun picnic with their family!

Egg Drop Important Dates:

  • ASAP parents complete Egg Drop Parent Picnic Survey: CLICK HERE
  • Sept 25 – Kickoff and packets handed out to students

Please do what you can to support us with this! Parent Pro Tip: put a couple of extra masks in your child’s backpack, so they will always have a mask with them at school!

Sept 11 – CVES Update

Wildcat Families,

Thank you for a great start to the school year! We’ve gotten back into the routine of school and overall things are going very well. I wanted to briefly reach out to each of our Crimson View families and share a couple of reminders.

  1. Early Release PLC – next Monday, Sept 14 we will follow our Friday schedule, dismiss at 1:15pm. This allows teachers to learn and grow professionally as well as prepare more in depth so they can effectively work with your children.
  2. Student Face Coverings – please remember to send your student with a mask each day. A face shield can be used if preferred, simply complete approval form in the office. (Face Shield is defined as a face covering that covers the entire face; protects the eyes of the wearer; is made of clear plastic; secures at the top of the head; does not secure under the chin) Parent Pro Tip: place an extra mask in your student’s backpack so that even if they forget their regular mask they have a backup ready to use.
  3. Toys – All toys are better left at home so they are not lost, broken, or stolen at school. Our classroom teachers have plenty of equipment for students to play with during recess. Additionally, toys can be a distraction to student learning. Please check in with your student, remind them to keep their toys at home.
  4. Student Safety – Please review your daily plan with your child regarding how they come and go from school. Talk about safety with them. Many students enjoy walking or riding a bike to and from school. Plan a safe route for them to use each day as they travel to and from school. Make sure your child understands how important it is to be safe and cautious while on roadways and especially at intersections.

I’ve been thrilled to be back in school with your children. They are exceptional human beings and I have a great hope in the future because of them! It is an honor to interact with them each day.

Please continue to make time to read for 20 minutes at home each night. When your student knows how much you value reading and their education they quickly adopt the same values and feelings.

Adam Baker (Principal) | 435-634-7000 | adam.baker@washk12.org
