Crestwood Surround Care

Surround Care is a program that will be initiated in the beginning of the 2015-2016 school year by   Crestwood Local Schools as a service to working parents.  While the program is operated by the district, it is totally dependent upon parent fees for its operating budget.

 

 

General Information

Hours for the school year program are from 6:30 a.m. until school convenes and from dismissal until 6:00 p.m. on a regular school day.  The Surround Care program and the School District follow the same schedule. 

Breakfast is provided by the school cafeteria for an additional cost.  A snack after school is provided on a daily basis by the program. 

 

Registration is open to all children enrolled in        Crestwood Local District for grades Pre-school  through the 5th grade.

CMS PTO VENDOR SHOW/BINGO PARTY
CEA Summer Camp Scholarship

Did you see the teachers working a booth at the Potato Festival?  They did, and this year they raised record worthy funds!  With that money, Crestwood Education Association is offering Summer Camp scholarships to Crestwood Middle school students.  Any student interested in attending a summer camp is encouraged to submit an application for the scholarship.  CEA realizes that there are many wonderful opportunities for summer camps available to middle school age students, yet the cost can sometimes make it difficult for families to send their children.  CEA wants to help.  Through CEA fundraising efforts, four $100.00 scholarships have been made available.  Application for all types of camps will be considered.

To apply, simply fill out the application - click here.  Return the completed application to Kim Marfy at Crestwood Middle School in a sealed envelope by May 1, 2015. Applications can also be picked up at the Middle School office.

BLACKBOARD MESSAGE

Second Quarter Interims, Fee Statements, Giving Tree, Thanksgiving Break

Good evening. This is Julie Schmidt, Principal of Crestwood Middle School calling with some important reminders for our CMS families.

First, I am calling to remind everyone that tomorrow, Tuesday, November 25th, marks the halfway point of our second grading period which means Interim Grade Reports will be coming home with your child.  All Crestwood Middle School students will be receiving their interim grade reports in their homerooms.  Attached to the interims you will find fee statements for those of you who have not yet had the opportunity to pay your child’s fees. Please watch for these important papers to come home tomorrow.

Also, our Annual CMS Giving Tree has been set up in the front atrium of our building.  If you would like to help make the holidays a little brighter for some families in our school, please stop by, pull a tag from the tree, and donate a gift. 

I am also calling to remind our families that tomorrow is the last day of school before the Thanksgiving Holiday. There is no school on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, November 26-28th.  Classes will resume on Monday, December 1st.

The written transcript of this message can also be found on the Crestwood Middle School web-page and the CMS Facebook page for your reference.

I hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving.

Thank you and have a great evening.
