  • Last Call:  Carnival Coordinator needed.  Each year, Crescent Heights PTA hosts a year-end carnival to celebrate the end of the school year.  We are in need of a parent who is willing to coordinate all aspects of the carnival:  securing rental vendors, entertainment vendors, soliciting and coordinating volunteers, coordinating food, decorations, admissions, etc.  If we are unable to get a coordinator for this committee,  we will need to cancel the carnival and move forward with a less labor-intensive plan.  Please email by Friday, Feb 16th if you are interested in taking on this project.
  • One Book is underway!  Last week we kicked off this year’s One Book program with the reveal of our book selection for this year:  “The One and Only Ivan” by Katherine Applegate.  Each family received a copy of the book and we encourage all students to read along in class or at home!  Keep track of your progress on your bookmark.  Bring it back when you’ve finished the book and you’ll receive a free pass for Mini Golf at Tower Lanes!  Go bananas for reading at Crescent Heights! 


Make your 5th grader’s yearbook and end of year 5th grade slide show special for them by sending in a baby picture to be included in the yearbook and slide show. You have two ways to submit your photos:

  1. Send in a baby picture that clearly shows your child’s face (no bigger than 4×6) and label the back with your child’s name and teacher’s name, place in a Ziploc bag and return to your child’s teacher. Try to send in photos with your child pictured by themselves (alone) if possible.
  2. Submit the photo via email attachment (JPEG only) to: size requirements as above. Include the name of student and teacher’s name. Put BABY PICTURE in the subject line. 

Send in one picture only. Your child’s picture will be returned to you. Please send in or email picture by Friday, February 16th in order to be included in the yearbook and end of year slide show. If you have any questions, please contact Dana Flynn at

Thank you and we look forward to seeing all of those adorable 5th grade babies!
