​We have a very busy week ahead of us, so please take a moment to view the Upcoming Events calendar in order to be aware of what is happening at Crestview for the final week of school. Some of the events that will be occurring are:

  • Literacy goal celebration will take place on Monday, May 21st.  We are expecting a large number of students to attend this event, and could still use some volunteers (especially for 7th grade). Please sign up here if you are able to help in any way. If you signed up to donate something, please send it to school by tomorrow morning with your child.

  • The 6th grade will have their Field Day on Tuesday, May 22nd.

  • 8th grade celebration takes place on Tuesday, May 22nd. This is an all-day event with many fun activities planned. Please remember that students will need to wear appropriate attire including socks and athletic shoes, and should either bring a sack lunch or $4 to purchase pizza & water.

  • Six Flags Safe School Field Trip is Wednesday, May 23rd. As a reminder, students must ride their assigned school bus to the park and back. It will deliver them to their designated bus stop at the end of the day.

Crestview is fortunate enough to have 3 sets of virtual reality goggles.  These require students to have a device to work with them.  Some of our students do not have a device or they may not operate with the goggles.  We are seeking donations of older phones that we could keep with the goggles for all students to use.  If you have an Iphone 5 (or newer) or Samsung 4 (or newer) sitting around your house, we could use it.  If you are willing to donate them, please make sure you have reset the phone to factory settings and disconnect your google app account or Icloud from the phone.  Please send the device to school with your student with their name on it.  We would need the name in case something is not cleared, we would know which family to contact.  Students may bring them to the library before the end of school. 


Announcements regarding end of the year

As we draw close to the end of the school year, check with your child to make sure they start bringing home anything out of their lockers they no longer need. They should also check lost and found if they've misplaced an item recently, turn in library books, take care of textbook fines, etc.  The sooner they start on unfinished tasks, the less they will have to do that last week!  Check around your house for textbooks and library books and make sure they are returned to school. 6th & 7th grade students will keep their chromebooks at home for the summer. 8th grade will need to turn theirs in, along with the power cord on Monday, May 21st following their last exam.

Please look at our website for information regarding end of the year procedures for meal accounts.

The last day of school for students, May 24, is an early release day and students will be dismissed at 11:15.  All students MUST be off campus by 11:30 on the last day.

Our language arts teachers would like to challenge our students to keep their minds active this summer. A list of summer reading recommendations has been compiled that is designed to help students best prepare for the upcoming grade level. The list of recommendations is available on Crestview’s website.

Report cards will not be mailed and will only be available for viewing on Infinite Campus from 4:00 p.m. on June 1 until 4:00 p.m. on June 15.  After that date, the 2018-19 school year becomes active and you will no longer be able to view the report card online.

*PARENT ACTION REQUIRED: Pick up your child's EPI PEN, INHALER, AND MEDICATION from the nurse BY END OF THE SCHOOL DAY on THURSDAY, MAY 24th.

I wanted to follow up on the email you received for our Superintendent this week. He stated, “As a public school district, we simply can’t afford to support the concept of random walkouts or we would be dealing with such events often. We can, however, understand that students do need a voice. We believe there are acceptable ways to work with requests to show respect for fellow students across the country who have lost their lives to violence”. We have been working with student leaders at Crestview and have devised a way to allow for student voices to be heard without disrupting school. We encourage you to engage in healthy conversations around school safety with your children. We plan to continue to collaborate with our students and others on the issue of school safety tomorrow and in the future.

TomorrowFriday, April 20th has been proclaimed by Rockwood School District as “Power of Purple Day” in support of the Relay For Life event. We hereby call upon all faculty and students to show their support for the fight against cancer by wearing Relay gear or the color “PURPLE”.

MAP and EOC testing continues this week and next. We understand that circumstances occur that are beyond our control, but want to stress that It is very important that students be at school during these testing times if at all possible.  Testing for 8th grade Science begins tomorrow and continues through Monday. Language Arts testing will be Mondayand Tuesday for our 6th & 7th grade students, and will continue through Wednesday for our 6th graders.

To help our students test their best, students need to:

- Get a good night’s sleep
- Eat a complete breakfast
- Remember to charge and bring their Chromebooks everyday
Have a pair of earbuds or headphones here at school
- Have a positive and optimistic attitude
- Give their best effort

2018 Crestview Service Day
I wanted to give you an update on our service day.  I had big plans to have all kids participate in a service activity all on one day.  The total number of kids become overwhelming when trying to find locations and activities for that many children.  I have been working with organizations and unfortunately some of them have fallen through or just can't accommodate us.  I may have tried to bite off more than I can chew, but you have to dream big. 

Since our 6th grade students participate in service activities at Camp, and an activity to support the heart association is in the works for our 7th graders, we will be moving forward with just the 8th grade participating in the Service Day on the afternoon of April 11th. Some students will be leaving campus while others will be staying here to participate in service work.  The students will have a choice in which activities they will serve.  A sign up sheet will be given to the students in the next day or two to make their selection. There are still a few logistical items to work out, but we will keep you informed as we move forward.

If you are a parent or guardian of an 8th grade student, we would like for you to be involved. Please contact me via email at jansengary@rsdmo.org if you are still interested in joining us on April 11.

It’s not too late to give us your input on school character and climate.  Please take a few minutes to take the School Climate Survey. The survey will close tomorrow, March 30th. Results from these surveys are utilized in the follow ways:

  • Answers from this survey about safety, character education, the teaching and learning environment, prevention services, and parent involvement help with district-wide program evaluation process.
  • Analysis of data by school level teams can help focus goal setting and action planning on solutions that lead to school and student success.
  • Applying for awards such as National Schools of Character.

On Sat 2/24, 3 teams of Crestview students (14 kids) competed in the Missouri Regional Middle School Science Bowl. The team of Sujay Vadderaju, Soham Saraf, Arnav Busani, and Lawrence Liu won!  These students will be continuing onto the National Competition in Washington DC from April 27-30th. Congratulations, and let’s wish them success as they prepare for the national competition!

Support Opening Day tomorrow and have your student wear their Cardinal gear!

Just a reminder that school will be closed next week during spring break.  Therefore, there will not be a weekly update sent out next week.  I hope you have a safe, restful and enjoyable spring break!  Let’s all hope for springtime weather!

Congratulations to Ali Krinski, Assistant Principal, on being a 2018 ROSE Award recipient!

Parents, take a few minutes to share your thoughts by completing the School Climate Survey. The survey will close on March 30th.

As a Leader in Me school, we would like your feedback to aid us in tracking important areas of growth and measure the impacts of The Leader in Me on aspects of academics and culture within our school. The Leader in Me survey takes about 12 minutes to complete and will ask you some questions about your child and about his/her school.  

Dr. Lisa Counts, Assistant Superintendent Supervision of Schools, has published an article regarding Digital Parenting on the Rockwood website. Please take a few moments to read this insightful article.
