Renewal – Permanent Improvement Levy – November 2016 – No New Taxes

In 1987, the crestwood Local School District residents approved a 3.5-    mill permanent improvement levy. Proceeds from this levy can be used to purchase or repair those items in the school district that have a long term useful life.  Typically a five (5) year useful life or more is utilized when determining the use of these funds.  The money from a permanent improvement levy can be used to purchase school busses, school building equipment such as boilers, furnaces, hot water heaters, water fountains, light fixtures, technology, athletic equipment and band equipment, etc.  It can be used to replace or repair school roofs, cracked sidewalks, windows, as well as for the purchase of new textbooks, desks and instructional equipment.

We’re listening: new parent education video stresses reading in the third grade


Under Ohio’s Third Grade Reading Guarantee, a student’s third grade year can be the most pivotal. Yet schools tell us that parents of struggling readers often don’t realize that. The Ohio Department of Education now offers a video that schools can use to help families understand the critical importance of monitoring their struggling readers’ progress in third grade. The video also suggests how family members can support a child’s reading at home. Download the 30-second video for parent-teacher conferences as well as posting on your district website.

Socktober at CPS

Every night in the United States an estimated 600,000 people live on the streets. This October,

SoulPancake and Kid President want 2 million people to prove that even the smallest acts of love, like donating a pair of socks, can make a big difference in the lives of our neighbors who are homeless.”

- If you are able and willing, please send your child to school with a NEW pair of socks any day this October.

-They will then add their sock contribution to a Sock Box which will be kept in their classroom.

- Every Friday I will collect a count of each classroom’s socks and do an announcement over the PA

-At the end of October we will be donating all of the socks we raise to a local shelter.

-This is a wonderful way to show our students at CPS one of the traits of a good citizen: To help people in our community!

-Here is the link to the Socktober website which gives you more information about Socktober including some videos of schools that have done this in the past:

-Any questions can be emailed to your child’s teacher

for which class has raised the most socks by the end of that week.
