April Theme:  Joy & Tradition

The warm sunshine, birds singing, and blooms returning are all welcome signs of hope that spring has arrived!

This time of year is often filled with much joy as we transition recess back outside and we partake in some traditional school wide activities in the months ahead. This month we are looking forward to sharing a virtual International Celebration on April 22 from 5:30-6:30. We will be partnering with our friends at the African Cultural Connection to have students partake in making African Art. More information and registration for families will occur in the weeks ahead, so please be on the lookout for flyers.

School Wide Communication

A reminder to all Crestridge families to check ClassDojo daily. ClassDojo is the school wide communication app that is used across Crestridge. Families can find school wide and classroom announcements shared here. Additionally, teachers use this tool to communicate your students achievements, as well as areas where parent- teacher collaboration may be needed. Reviewing your child's Dojo points is a great way to discuss with your student the positive choices they are making at school.
