Calling all Students! We are looking for YOU! We need participants in our Reflections program arts contest! Do you like to draw? Take pictures? Write poetry? This is your chance to show the rest of Crescent Heights just how talented you are!flyerportion

The Reflections program allows students to express themselves through a variety of creative outlets. It’s been several years since we’ve had this program at Crescent Heights. How many times have you wished that we had an arts program here at CHE? Have you thought that the focus is more on testing than it is on the creative arts? Well, we can’t necessarily change school curriculum, but we CAN encourage all of our students to tap into their creative side and submit an entry to Reflections. Deadline is November 13th. Details and category specific rules can be found right here!  We will also have the rules available at school on the bulletin board, located just outside of the library. Student entries can be turned into the office. There is also a short YouTube video explaining the program: here.
If you have any questions, please contact our Reflections chairperson,  Dana Flynn, at

40th Reflections Logo-PMS208To help “sweeten” the deal, the PTA will give every child that participates a $5 gift card to Menchies! So please encourage YOUR child to participate. This is a once-a-year program, and we would really like to see our students showcase their PRIDE in their talents! We know that many of you are out there!

Room Parents:
The following teachers are still without a Room Parent:
Mrs. Clapp’s 1st Grade class, Mrs. Morris’ 2nd Grade Class, Mrs. Pernell’s 2nd Grade Class, Mrs. Craig’s 3rd Grade Class, and Mr. Donovan’s 4th Grade class
If you have a child in one of these classrooms, please consider talking to their teacher to see how you can help out with this important but FUN role. It doesn’t just have to be one room parent either, as you can co-share the role with another parent as well. What is a room parent?  Mainly, you will work with your childs teacher to coordinate and organize any celebration or seasonal events that the teacher would like to have throughout the school year in the classroom. Once you find out what the teacher would like to do for your classroom party, you can then recruit other parent volunteers to send in items and/or help serve if necessary. The work is minimal, but you are a valuable resource to these teachers, and it is super rewarding knowing that you helped the kids have a great time by putting on a fun celebration! Please consider filling this role in the above mentioned classrooms. Thank you!!!

Celebrating Birthdays:

Birthdays are a very exciting and special day for every one of our students. Celebrations (cookies, cupcakes, etc.) should be arranged in advance with classroom teachers. This will help with timing and logistics during a school day. Teachers have been encouraged to keep the celebrations brief, as our primary focus here at school is teaching and learning. Any balloons, flowers or other gifts delivered to school must remain in the office area during the school day. Students can drop by the office at the end of the school day, pickup their balloons or flowers and take them home with them. If a student rides the bus home, they cannot take balloons on the bus. Thank you for your understanding and accommodations to make celebrations successful during the school day.

Have a great week!!!
