Dear Parents,

What a strange weather week it has been! From hot summer weather to November slushy rain – we’ve seen it all this week! We hope you have all found some time this week to get outside and get active.

Thanks again for your support of our Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser. We have raised just over $1000!! We are so proud of the generosity our community is showing, even while we are apart! If you haven’t already, please consider donating to this worthwhile cause. Thank you to all the students who are actively jumping and encouraging their fellow Crestwood students to get active and help others. The last day for donations will be next Friday, June 4th. We will be wrapping up our fundraiser at an all school assembly next Friday morning. We will also be hearing speeches from our house head candidates for next year. Webinar information will be sent to students by their homeroom teachers next week. 

Please take a look at the updated Clubs flyer for the coming week in this newsletter and on Edsby. This coming week will be our last week of clubs. Thank you to all the teachers who volunteered their time to engage in some fun activities and interact in a more informal virtual setting with students. Thank you to the students who participated; we hope you had fun!

This time around, Fill Up with Mrs. Fuller sessions are focused on resilience and having a growth mindset. We are looking at how mistakes, challenges and failures can lead to incredible things. Students are asked to examine their own fixed and growth mindsets, and strategize how to change our mindset so we can demonstrate resilience in all areas of our lives.

The Primary students identified the many ways they showed good manners at home, in school and in the community.   Sometimes we all need little reminders about making sure these manners are always followed and we saw that you will never be criticized for having too many manners.  “Please” and “Thank you” are two of the common manners used by all, but just being attentive to someone who is talking, waiting your turn and cleaning up after yourself are manners that we sometimes need reminders about. Do not be surprised at home if you hear your child reminding YOU of your manners!     

We are crossing our fingers that the government will let us return to school soon so that we can complete the year in person. It has been a very stressful time for all of us and we hope to be back together so that we can have proper closure to the school year and restore some normalcy in our lives.

Wishing you all a safe and healthy weekend!

Amy Fuller & Sharon Liebenthal
