Dear Parents/Guardians,


We hope everyone had an enjoyable Easter Weekend!   As you know, our Home and School Association organized a Readathon as a spring fundraiser. A big thank you to all those who are taking part as readers and sponsors!  Students need to bring back their reading pages and sponsor pages with money collected by Tuesday April 10th to be eligible for prizes.  Winners will be announced later in the  week.  The Home and School Association has also organized a clothing drive to raise funds (separate communication was sent home).  Items can be dropped off at the school on April 12th  and 13th. The Home and School Association always welcomes new members! The next meeting is Tuesday, April 24th at 6:30pm.


Parent/Teacher Interviews are coming up Thursday April 12th (6-8pm) and Friday April 13th (9am-11:30am). We look forward to meeting with parents/guardians during these times.  Please call the school at 734-3700 to book an appointment time. The Book Fair will also be happening the same week.  Like other years, it will be set up in the library at CRHS and will be open during the week including Thursday evening during Parent/Teacher interviews. More specific times will be sent by our librarian with Book Fair information. Sales from this book fair support our school library!     Activities taking place at our local public library are included below!


One final note, spring is upon us and our playground is going to be wet and muddy!  Please ensure students are dressed for outdoor play. Students look forward to this part of their day.  It is much more enjoyable when they are dry and warm.
