SEP Online Scheduler and Parking Lot Safety

SEP Conferences – Arrival/Dismissal Safety

Wildcat Families —

I wanted to write a quick note and share some important information.

First, we have our first SEP Conferences scheduled for Sept 7 & 8. They will be scheduled after school from 4~7pm both evenings. You should expect your child’s teacher to share the following:

  • Current benchmark grade level expectations in LA and Math and where your child is performing related to the benchmark expectation.
  • A goal or plan of what your child’s teacher will do to help your child
  • Resources or ideas for what you can do at home to help your child

We value parents as a critical partner in the education process and hope you’ll be able to participate with us next week. 

You can now schedule your SEP appointment time by going to our school website and clicking on the “Online Scheduler” link under the School Announcements section of our school homepage. (https://cves.washk12.org)

Next up … Arrival and Dismissal Parking Lot Safety … we need your help! If you are dropping off or picking up your student each day please review the map and guidelines found on our school website and watch the video below.

CLICK HERE for the guidelines posted on our website.

Our only goal is for every student to arrive at school safely and to get home each day safely. Let’s always remember that!

Finally, I’ve got a bunch of information to simply share with you. Links, flyers, info … 

*CCHS Drill & Cheer Clinic – INFO FLYER

Early Release Reminder and Lunch Update

Hi Wildcat Families,

We’ve had a great few days! It’s been wonderful to have students back in school! Everyone is looking sharp with fresh haircuts, cute outfits and spiffy new shoes!

Thanks for being flexible with the schedule this week. Having the early release each day gives our teachers the opportunity to meet individually with every child in their class to get some beginning year baseline data. It also helps us know exactly how to help your child the very best.

I hope to clear up any confusion you may have regarding lunch on early release days or on a Friday. We received guidance that any student who would like to eat a school lunch needs to have the opportunity to do so during our school day. On early release days each grade level will be scheduled for about 15 minutes of eating time. Each grade level is handling this a bit differently, but every student will have the same opportunity to choose one of the following:

  • purchase a lunch from the school
  • bring a home lunch, or snack
  • don’t purchase or bring anything and wait to eat until they get home (12pm dismissal)

Please make sure that your student knows what you expect them to do with regards to lunch, especially on these early release days.

If you have additional questions, please ask!

Thanks again for your continued support! We’ve started strong and hope to keep that momentum rolling! We’ve got the best students, the best parents, and the best teachers and staff!

Let’s go Wildcats!! This is how legends are made!

Dec 2021 Update

December 2021 – Update

Wildcat Families —

We’re definitely enjoying the magic of the Holiday season here at Crimson View. It’s been so much fun to have so many visitors coming and going and sharing favorite family traditions or stories. Thank you for making time to share with our students. As a community of learners we appreciate everyone who has so willingly given of their time and of their experiences. We’re better together!

We’re in the middle of our Penny Wars competition! We have passed the $4000 mark, but still short of our goal of $6500. Of course, I’m not terribly excited to reach our goal … if you haven’t heard, I’ve agreed to KISS A PIG if we hit our goal. Something that I’ve intentionally left off of my bucket list … but am willing to do to help motivate our students and help us achieve our goal. I have loved hearing stories from a few of our students who sold treats or having a lemonade/hot cocoa stand to help raise money to donate. The power of our learning community is pretty amazing!!

We’re also enjoying some Christmas fun these final few days before our break. CLICK HERE for the information flier. 

  • Dec 15 – Winter Wear (Hat, mittens, scarf, etc)
  • Dec 16 – Christmas Spirit (Christmas Colors)
  • Dec 17 – Holiday Movie Fun (Dress like your favorite holiday movie character)
  • Dec 20 – Jingle Bells (Christmas accessories)
  • Dec 21 – Christmas Sweater or PJs

Check our school calendar (https://cves.washk12.org/calendar/) to keep current on all things Crimson View!

Have a magical Holiday Season, a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!

I enjoy working with them and truly admire the work that they are doing each day in their classrooms. Our school is a wonderful place for kids, due in large part to the wonderful teachers that work here. If you get a chance make sure you share your gratitude with them, they deserve it!

Mid Sept Update

MID-September Status Update:

Wildcat Families —

We continue to have many students and families impacted by illness. Please continue to monitor your own children and keep them home if they are ill. Runny noses, fevers, coughs, etc. are all better kept to ourselves than shared. We will also continue to encourage good hygiene at all times, especially hand washing! Let’s all do our part to quit sharing germs!

Busy weekend ahead! There will be no school for students on this Friday, Sept 17, as it has been designated a teacher preparation day.

Enjoy cheering on the Ironman athletes or have a blast at the Dixie Roundup rodeo!

First Day & Two Reminders

First Day & Two Reminders

Wildcat Families —

I’m so happy to have our school full of students and the sounds of school again! It is wonderful and makes my heart happy.

It’s been a great start! Students seem to be happy and enjoying the new school year, new teachers, new friends, new clothes and everything else that comes with a fresh school year start. I want to share two quick reminders:

  1. Arrival & Dismissal Parking Lot SafetyCLICK HERE – please review the information at the link and always be extra safe and cautious in and around our school.
  2. School Schedule Review: Today is a “normal” day with school from 9~3:30 for grades 1~5. Every Friday this year school will dismiss at 12pm. Lunch will not be eaten at school on Friday or early dismissal days. For those students who desire, they may request a sack lunch from our school lunchroom, and then those students will place the lunch in their backpacks and take it home to enjoy after the 12pm dismissal. This will be the lunch plan for all early release days. Next week, Aug 16~20, will be early dismissal (12pm) each day. Every student should have an individual appointment scheduled for a language arts diagnostic assessment with their classroom teacher. Our regular school schedule will resume on Aug 23. The first day of Kindergarten will also be on Aug 23.

As always, thank you so much for your support. Crimson View is an outstanding school and a wonderful place for children. If you ever have questions, concerns or need additional clarification, please ask!

We’re Better Together!
