#1 – Teacher Appreciation Week – Feb 16~19

Message from our Awesome and Amazing PTA —

We have the opportunity to show our appreciation and give back to our teachers for making this school year possible and for sacrificing so much on behalf of our Crimson View Elementary students.

Each student will be coming home on Thursday, February 11th, with a list of their teachers favorite things. Here are a few ways your student could show appreciation for their teachers during this week:

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!!

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!

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!
