Another Wonderful Weekend for Crestwood Fall Sports

Friday, October 24 saw our Red Devil football squad travel to Kent to take on the Rough Riders.  The first half was a bit of a struggle as we fell behind 26 - 7 late in the second quarter.  This team maintains their composure and the Cardiac Devils fought their way back in an exciting second half.  48 - 42 was the final as the Devils prevailed with six players scoring touchdowns; Brendan Fannin, A. J. Foulkes, Jared Bailey (2), Gabe Surgeon, Logan Thut, and Jordan Fabry with the game winner.  Our 9 - 0 Devils have clinched at least a share of the PTC Metro title as well as the first home playoff game in school history.  Field visits on Friday--Senior Night at Jack Lambert Stadium.

The Crestwood Cross Country teams traveled to Boardman on Oct 25 for OHSAA Reginal Tournament action.  The boys team finished 9th overall with senior Jeremiah Fitzgerald (3rd) and junior Jacob Ondash (9th) qualifying for the state meet next Saturday.  Also placing for the guys were Sam Oliphant, George Lesnak, and Colson Faust.  The girls team missed qualifying for a trip to Columbus by just one spot as they finished in 5th place.  Melina Edic, Evie Head, Kira Judd, Katie Fosnight, and Bella Wagner placed for the girls.

Welcome Back to School

Dear Crestwood High School Students and Families,

The teachers and staff at Crestwood High School are excited to begin the 2014-15 school year, and look forward to working with both students and parents to provide the best possible learning opportunities.

Improvements to our building were completed during the summer months including freshly painted classrooms, a new Guidance Department computer lab and large group counseling conference room, updated computer labs, and enhanced wireless connectivity. In addition, several new programs will be implemented throughout the school year, including a freshman mentoring program, an enhanced intervention program for all students, and a building-wide initiative focused on college and career readiness. Information on all of these programs will be communicated in the near future. Letter from Principal

CHS Fundraiser Flyer

The Crestwood Local School District currently has to make up four calamity days. The Crestwood Board of Education, last evening, passed a resolution to utilize Blizzard Bags to help offset school days missed this past winter.  Blizzard Bags are an option provided by the Ohio Department of Education for school districts to help make up as many as three instructional days during a school year. With the use of Blizzard Bags, the Crestwood Local Schools will only have to make up one day at the end of this school year.

Blizzard Bags are online or take-home lessons that students complete to make up a missed day of school. Assignments will be available online on our individual schools’ websites or as “take home” hard copy assignments for your child to complete beginning Monday, April 14.  Assignments are due two weeks after they are assigned.  For example, the first assignments will be due two weeks from Monday, April 14 which is Friday, April 25.   The second assignments will be assigned Monday, April 28 and will be due Friday, May 9.  The third assignments will be assigned Monday, May 12 and will be due Friday, May 23. 

If you have questions, please contact your child’s teacher or the Principal of your child’s school. We hope that the use of Blizzard Bags will be beneficial to your child’s education and success.

Since one additional day must be added at the end of the year, the last day of school for Crestwood students will now be June 6, 2014.
