Crescent Heights PTA is proud to continue the tradition of recognizing a Golden Acorn recipient(s) from our school.

A Golden Acorn is a very special award given by our PTA for individuals who have given outstanding volunteer service and shown dedication to our children and youth.  Candidates are required to be PTA members, demonstrate service to all students, and their volunteer service generally extends into the community in addition to their service through PTA and the school.

Each individual chosen to receive this award will receive a hand-painted gold pin in the shape of an acorn; a special certificate and a monetary contribution will be made in their name to the Washington State PTA Scholarship Foundation.  These funds provide scholarships for post-secondary students.

We would like you to participate in the selection of our award recipient(s) through your recommendations.

Nominations will be accepted now until May 8th, 2015.  Fill out the form here:  GoldenAcornNomForm2015or hard copies are available in the school office.  You may return your completed form to your child’s teacher, or drop it off in the office!  Our Golden Acorn Award committee will make the final selection.  Thank you!

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 this week on May 5th and 7th, and 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)

Wow!  The ASB team is so proud of our school.  By collecting spare change and other donations, we were able to raise a total of $582.08.  That’s 58,208 PENNIES!  Thank you to everyone that participated in donating and helping to spread the word about this awesome program.  Together, we are helping to make a difference in the lives of those living with blood cancer.  GO HUSKIES!

PTA Social Media Chair needed:
The PTA is looking for a new Social Media chair to take over the drafting of these weekly Husky Connection Emails and our Facebook updates.  This is a low-time commitment job – less than 1 hour/week – but an important one.  If you’re looking for a way that you can help out the PTA with the important role of keeping parents informed of events at school, this Sunday evening job might be for you!  Please email if you are interested!

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.
