I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoy time with family and friends.  Because of the shortened week, there will be NO after-school activities next week.  Please be sure your child takes normal transportation home on Monday and Tuesday and is off campus no later than 2:45 p.m.  School will be closed on Wednesday, November 22 through Friday, November 24.  Therefore, we will be combining the Weekly Update for next week with this one so you will not be receiving a Weekly Update next week.

It was a privilege to share some time with our honored guests during the Veterans Day breakfast and assembly.  Thank you to all who attended.

We have teamed up with Monsanto for a canned food drive that will run through November 21st.  The food drive will support the “Got Your Backpack” program that we run at Crestview. All food collected will be going to Crestview families unless there is extra food, which we hope there is, and that will go to the district food pantry. Along with the food drive, we will be competing with the other middle schools in a design competition utilizing the canned goods that are collected. The competition will be judged by the donation size, stability, and creative design. The design will be built the last week of November outside of the cafeteria. We will also be doing a building wide competition through start rooms. The start room at each grade level with the highest can-to-student ratio will receive a pancake breakfast cooked by Dr. Jansen.

Our WEB Ice Skating event will be held on Tuesday, December 5 from 12:00 – 2:45.  If your child is interested, he/she should pick up a form during lunch or from the office.​

As you may be aware, our intruder alarms went off today.  We want to assure you that there was no threat as they were activated in error.  That being said, the student body and staff reacted appropriately and in the manner that has been practiced.  This lasted less than a minute and the students went back to their classrooms beautifully.

We are in the final week of collecting bottle caps for the recycling program we have been participating in promoted by the St. Louis County Health Department.  Please save your plastic bottle cap from soda, water and/or sports drink bottles and send them to school by November 10.  Students will also be provided a plastic water bottle which can be used at school and refilled at new bottle refilling water stations provided by the Health Department.

If you have a relative, friend or neighbor who is in the service or is a veteran, please extend an invitation to them to be our guest at Crestview’s annual Veterans’ Day breakfast and assembly on Friday, November 10.  See more information and how to RSVP . . .

I want to thank our parents for sponsoring the Fall dance last Friday and to our students for being on their best behavior.  A lot of work went into making this successful and students seemed to really enjoy themselves. Also, a huge thanks to the volunteers who donated time and items for the Wellness Walk. The students had a great time even though we had to move indoors due to the weather.

Please join us for our next Principal’s Coffee on Thursday, November 2 in the Library from 9:30 – 10:45 a.m.  The topic will be “Getting Ready for High School”.

Over the past few years the safety and security of our schools has become a priority nationally, in the Rockwood School District and here at Crestview.  Today we conducted an extensive intruder drill.  We practiced staying inside the classroom and protecting ourselves by turning off the lights, locking the doors, covering the windows, hiding in the classroom out of sight, and putting things in front of the door to keep the intruder out of the classroom.  We also discussed when it might be safer to leave the classroom and school to avoid the threat and practiced doing this option as well.  We want to make you aware this was only a drill so you are not surprised to learn your child practiced escaping the building! Feel free to also discuss this with your child and assure them the safety of our students and staff is our upmost priority.

Lately we have had many students staying late after school which is causing a supervision issue.  This is happening on days whether we have activities or not.  In order for us to keep all of our students safe and properly supervised, we are asking that all students who are not riding the bus be picked up at an appropriate time. This means on days without activities students should be picked up by 2:45 and on days that we have activities, students should be picked up at 3:30. If you are unable to pick up your child by 3:30, arrangements should be made for them to ride our activity bus. We want our children to participate in activities, but it is important for them to be picked up on time.

Crestview is participating in a recycling program promoted by the St. Louis County Health Department.  Please save your plastic bottle cap from soda, water and/or sports drink bottles and send them to school between now and November 10.  Students will also be provided a plastic water bottle which can be used at school and refilled at new bottle refilling water stations also provided by the Health Department.

This year, Crestview would like to serve those who serve us at a Veterans’ Day breakfast and assembly on Friday, November 10th. We would like to invite active service men and women or veterans that are part of the Crestview family to join us in this celebration. Please see the attached information to RSVP for the breakfast and assembly or to recognize your special Veteran. If your Honoree is unable to attend the breakfast and assembly, but you would like to honor their service and sacrifice, please fill out the Veteran's Day poster and return to school to be displayed on our bulletin board.  If you do not have a photo we will add the correct Armed Services logo for you.  Please help us recognize those who pay the ultimate price for our great nation.

Students also have the opportunity to participate in the Gallup Student Poll through tomorrow, October 27.  Click here for the Parent Letter.

Now that we have settled in to the new school year and routines are getting set, I’m asking for your assistance with student attendance and checking students in/out.  We try to avoid disruptions in the classroom as much as possible and to keep students in class to prevent them from missing out on instruction.  We realize there are times when a student absence cannot be avoided.  When this happens, please make sure to call the attendance hotline at 636.891.6965 as early as possible.  If you need to check a student out of school early, provide a note with the time and a reason for checking out.  The note should also indicate if a person other than a parent or guardian will be picking up the student.  The note should be given to the hall monitor at the front entrance or brought to the office before the start of classes.  A pass will be given to the student so they can be ready to go when you get here.  This will decrease your wait time and prevent disrupting the classroom.  You will still need to come into the building to sign your child out and please remember to bring in a photo ID!  Following this procedure is a Win-Win for everyone!

From the Leader in Me Family Learning Action Team

One goal of our Family Learning Action Team is to model activities that we do during monthly mentor times and transfer them to the home environment.  This month, our mentor time focused on relationships and team building.  Families can now share selfies of activities and moments that display our monthly Leader in Me theme on our Crestview Facebook page and Twitter.  Here's how:
     1) "LIKE" our page on Facebook @CrestviewMiddle .  You will see our updates in your friend-feed and get good ideas from other CMS families.  Follow our Twitter @Crestviewmiddle.
     2) SEND photos of you and your kids enacting Leader in Me themes at home to Dr. Jansen at 
jansengary@rsdmo.org
     3) WATCH for your pictures or great ideas from our family community.
Family sharing of Leader in Me ideas will be uploaded to our page and tagged as #SundaySelfies to show how we are all working on 7 Habits at home!  Send us a picture of your family showing teamwork during the month of September.
