The whole school is excited about our Book Fair, starting tomorrow, Monday April 20 and running through Friday April 24.  An amazing selection of books is headed our way!  At the book fair, you will find the latest and finest titles for kids, as well as books of interest to parents.  

The library will be open for book sales during the lunch/recess hours from 11:30 – 1:20.  On Wednesday April 22nd, the Book Fair will be open after school from 3:30 – 4:30.  We encourage you to come shop with your child at any of our open book times!  Having a grownup to help pick out books and keep their budget in mind is a great help to our kids.  When sending in money with your child, please seal it in a baggie or envelope with their name clearly marked on it.  Bills (as opposed to a giant bag of coins) is easiest on the kids and the volunteers that will help them figure out what they can afford to purchase with the money they brought from home.  Please note that we do have to charge tax, so plan for that when sending in money with your child.

You may also shop online from April 15 – May 1!
If you can’t make it to the Book Fair, or prefer to shop from home, you can also help support our school by shopping online.  When shopping online you can shop for an additional 12 days; browse an expanded book collection, and send a wish list to friends and family!  All orders are shipped free to Crescent Heights and will be given to your child to take home.

Find us online!  Visit the Crescent Heights Scholastic Book Fair Home page at or follow the link on the Crescent Heights Library Website.  See you at the book fair!

We still need a few volunteers to help out – please sign up for an hour slot via our Sign Up Genius link!


The marathon is underway!  Kids have begun running their laps on Tuesdays and Thursdays at lunchtime. Over 325 students are participating – and we REALLY need your help!  We need volunteers to help hand out rubber bands as kids come around the track (to count their laps), help students fill out their running logs, running/walking the track with the students, encouraging them to continue, cleaning up, helping to count log sheets for toe tokens, and to help plan the end of year Marathon party.  

We especially need help with our younger grades, from 11:40 – 12:40.  Our fabulous Marathon Chair, Morgan Meyers, is requesting that you sign up to help at our Sign Up Genius link.  She could really use your help!!  Marathon Volunteers needed!! (1)

Climate Survey Open Now:

The Tacoma School District values input from parents, students and staff. The school district believes that a healthy school climate can contribute to the achievement of students. Therefore, the District Climate Survey was designed to gather opinions from our parents, students and staff concerning their perceptions of school climate. The survey covers topics of safety, communication, diversity, student learning and student-led conferences. All surveys are 29 questions and measure the same concepts.

Your input is very important. Your responses are strictly anonymous and you will not be asked to identify yourself at any time during the survey. The survey should take 10 to 20 minutes to complete.

Thank you, in advance, for taking the time to respond.

PTA Treasurer Needed:

We are still looking for someone to fill the role of Treasurer for the 2015/16 school year.  The board cannot proceed with the 2015/2016 school year without a treasurer.  This is more than just money, debits and credits.  This role gives you a voice on our executive board!  We have made great strides this year and would love to have you join us on the journey for next year.  We can help you with the ‘numbers’ part of the role.  If you would be interested in serving on the board, please connect with our nominating committee:  Dorie Aho (, Jennifer Schmitt (, or Morgan Meyers (
