What do you know about Vaping and Juuls?

Vaping is a trend among teens across the nation that is growing at a furious speed. We have found that some of our students are vaping too. It is addictive and harmful. It is super easy to conceal. It is illegal for anyone under the age of 21 to purchase e-cigarette products in St. Louis County. It is NOT ALLOWED AT CMS! We are focused on educating students on the harmful effects of using e-cigarette products. Please have a tough conversation with your child about vaping and that it is not cool and not acceptable. Read below for more information about the harmful effects of vaping. 

 

Our CPO is hosting a principal coffee on February 1st at 9:30. We will have two different speakers.  One is an author (as well as a former Lafayette student) to speak about his addiction and the other is a health coach.  This is another opportunity to learn ways to keep your child healthy and away from harmful products.  

 

Here is an additional story from USA Today regarding this topic:

Congratulations to Mr. Barrett’s classes!  They participated in a design challenge with Monsanto utilizing the cans we collected as part of our food drive to create a 3D model. They created a model of a tractor which took second place in our district competition.

This week Crestview celebrated our International Week.  Students and staff participated in various activities including door competitions and trivia contests. This week helps us to celebrate the diverse student population that makes up our wonderful CMS population. One of the best events was held today in our library where students and our families created presentations to share information about their individual cultures. We appreciate everyone who was part of this program.

Especially this time of the year, please read and adhere to the attendance procedures as listed on our website.  If your child has a planned absence for an extended amount of time (three or more consecutive days), make sure they pick up a Planned Extended Absence form from the Guidance Office at least three days prior to the absence.  Students dropped off in the morning after 7:30 must be accompanied into school by a parent in order to sign them in.

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.

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.
