Parents, Guardians and Students,
Good evening! This is Principal Lloyd. I hope you are enjoying some fun over your summer break! We are busy preparing for the new school year and can't wait to see you in just a few weeks.
Please join us on August 22nd from 5:30-7:00 pm for our annual "Meet the Teacher" open house for all students. We will meet in the gym promptly at 5:30pm for information and introductions. The rest of the night will be a ‘meet the teacher night.’
Other things to do at meet the teacher night:
Please take advantage of the computers that will be available for parent volunteers/room parent, PTA or Watch Dog signups.
Anyone that enters the building during a regular school day and interacts with our children is required to sign up through the district and have a background check.
Please consider joining PTA during this night. Joining PTA is not the same as donating to the PTA fundraiser. Only those involved on a day-to-day basis in our school really understand the magnitude of the programs and services provided by our amazing PTA volunteers.
Our PTA sponsors and funds all field trips, Watch DOGS, Conquering Cub Program, teacher and Staff Appreciation, Run Club, Safety Patrol supplies, Book Fairs, Hearing and Vision Screening volunteers, Box Tops program, Reflections, Classic Skate Night, Spelling Bee, class emergency kits and a whole lot more!
Who are Watch DOGS? Fathers, grandfathers, step-fathers, uncles, and other father figures who volunteer at least one day a year that are willing to make a positive impact in the lives of our Crescent Family. We will have our Watch Dog rally Tuesday, September 12th 6:00-7:30pm. Please join us as we welcome Thurl Bailey
Thurl inspires others to win through working with youth in basketball camps to his involvement in the corporate world. He is recognized as a master storyteller, accomplished speaker, NBA basketball legend, singer, and songwriter. His courtesy, integrity, and strong sense of community have led to numerous civic
awards and earned him the nickname “NBA’s Mr. Nice Guy.”
Kindergarten teachers will meet with parents and students individually by appointment August 22nd – 25th. You will receive an appointment time. If not, please call the main office at 801-826-8200.
Online registration is open. You should have received a postcard in the mail as well as an email from the district with specific instructions on how to access the online portal. If you have not received this communication, please contact the district office at
801-826-5525 for access information.
Everyone is anxious to know class placement for the 2017-18 school year. This information will be available Friday, August 18th at 5:00pm for those who have completed the online registration process. Log in to your Family Access account on this day and click “student info” on the left side of the screen.
