Our school is participating in the worldwide Hour of Code event this week. "The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code", to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities but expanding to all sorts of community efforts. Check out the tutorials and activities. This grassroots campaign is supported by over 400 partners and 200,000 educators worldwide." (www.hourofcode.org)
Canyons District has a great Digital Citizenship resource available for parents and students. It is called Parent Connections, and is accessed through the Canyons District website or directly at: parentconnections.canyonsdistrict.org.
Crescent Elementary recently sent home a brochure for parents with tips and resources to help keep our students safe. To download a copy in English or Spanish, click here.
We look forward in December to Netsmartz Utah coming to teach our students about Digital Citizenship, and how to stay safe while navigating the digital world.

Our Booster schedule gives teachers time during the school day to collaborate and get professional development to ensure each student succeeds. Booster teachers teach for 30 minutes and our students rotate to all booster teachers. Our Booster teachers are trained specialists that provide curriculum-based instruction in areas such as physical education, art, engineering, and music while core teachers meet to collaborate and plan their instructional strategies.
Early-out days will be held on Fridays except on parent teacher conference weeks. On those weeks early out will be on that Thursday. Parent teacher conferences only happen twice a year, once in the fall and in the spring. School will not release early on other days during short weeks in which classes are not held on Fridays. During such times, collaboration and planning time for teachers will be adjusted as appropriate.
Crescent’s Instructional Technicians:
Media Instructional Technicians: Lila Macfarlane & Ginger Brooks
Playworks/PE Instructional Technician: Nancy Bromfield
Music Instructional Technician: Marie Smith
STEM Instructional Technician: Estefanya Yuritza Jensen
Art Instructional Technician: Katie James
