Mrs. Menta's Message

Happy Summer Craddock Families!

Before I formally send everyone off for a wonderful summer, I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to our staff, students, families, PTO and parent volunteers who have helped the final few weeks of the 21-22 school year go incredibly smoothly and be filled with so much fun. From Field Day to Lunch on the Lawn, it was a truly memorable end to a fantastic school year. Please know all of the time given, efforts made and support offered was truly appreciated. Craddock is so lucky to be surrounded by such a loving community! I have included some pictures below from the last few days. I couldn't catch all of the amazingness, but I did my best to give you a snapshot!

I invite all of our students to read this summer alongside their teachers and I. A copy of the Summer Literacy Passport is below for all incoming 1st and 2nd graders to record the days they read. We encourage all the students to return this to Craddock in the fall so they can be celebrated!

I put the 22-23 district calendar below and also included some important dates for Craddock to help frame your calendar for the start of the school year. I will include more and more as time goes on.

As a reminder, I will send a second communication out in mid-July and then resume weekly communication the first week of August. If you need anything in between there, please don't hesitate to reach out. My contact information is below.

Summer has officially begun and I know all of our students (and their families) are breathing a sigh of relief and feeling excitement about all that lies ahead these next few months. Please take time to relax, spend time with friends and family, and make new memories. Know we will be working hard this summer to be ready for all of our friends to return in the fall! We are already so excited!

Take care and happy summer!

Kim Menta
