Bus Notes and Dismissal Changes

If your child will be riding a different bus home with another student, we need a hand-written signed note from each parent involved. We need a note saying who your child will be riding the bus home with and the bus number, plus a note from the other parent saying it's okay to have the student ride home with their child. Both notes will then be approved by the office staff for the teacher to give to the bus driver. If we do not get notes from both parents, the student will be sent home on their normal bus.

Changes in how your child will be going home that are different from his/her normal routine are required to have a note from home. The note needs to have the student's full name, date, dismissal change and parent signature. A note must be sent in everyday that the change is in affect. The note will then be sent to the office to keep track of each student's mode of transportation.


Text book fees are now available in Skyward. Go to family access and click on Fee Management to see the balance. The due date is September 15, 2015. You can pay your fees with a check made payable to CRES. Please have a separate check for EACH student and put their name on the memo line. You can pay cash, but you must have exact change. You can also pay online through eFunds with a credit card or debit card. You can access the link on our website. Under the quick links you will see a link for eFunds online payment system.

From the CRES PTO…

Thank you for the positive response to this year’s SpiritWear! Orders have been submitted to the vendor and we look forward to delivery in early to mid-September.


Our first of only two major fundraisers this year is the Roadrunner Rally. It will take place on Thursday, October 1. Leading up to the fun-filled event, students will be rallying for pledges from aunts, uncles, grandparents, neighbors, coaches, parent’s friends, etc. Be on the lookout for more information in your child’s Monday folder. The Rockin’ Rally Recess Reward was a huge hit with the kiddos last year, and we look forward to watching the students make this FUNdraiser a success again this year.


Please mark your calendar for the following upcoming events & meetings:

  • Tuesday, September 1 – Open Forum Meeting
    All CRES parents & guardians are welcome and encouraged to attend this PTO meeting. We’ll begin at 7:00 p.m. in the Art Room.

  • Friday, September 25 - Grillin’ & Chillin’
    This FREE evening of food and fun will be held at the school from 5:30-7:00p.m.!

  • Thursday, October 1 – Roadrunner Rally
    The Roadrunner Rally is one of two major fundraisers we are sponsoring this year. Be on the lookout for more information soon. This has turned into a tradition and the kids have an absolute blast.

Café Expectations and Procedures

We want our café to be a place where our students can enjoy dining with each other using kindness and good manners.

There are two rules for students in the café.

1. Be Kind.

2. Be Safe.

This looks and sounds like:

Walk in quietly with your hands to yourself.

Use a quiet indoor voice to talk to your friends.

Raise your hand if you need help or need to get something.

Keep your hands, feet and objects to yourself.

Eat your own food.

Cooperate with others to clean up your table.

Pick up all your trash and walk to trashcans to throw it away.

Actively listen while the cafeteria staff is giving directions.

Procedures to make our café a safe and enjoyable place to dine:

1 Café staff will greet students in hallway at west entrance of dining room.

2 Students will be lined up along the south wall in hallway (across from bulletin board) in the following order: (Brought, Milk, PBJ, Turkey Sandwich, Chef Salad, Pizza Pak, Hot,)

3 As students enter the dining room café staff will direct packers to their assigned classroom table. Students purchasing a milk/lunch will be directed to enter the serving line and then take a seat at their assigned table. (Table will be marked with a color coded cone assigned to that class)

4 Once seated at the table, student will raise their hand if they need assistants or additional items such as napkin, fork, etc.

5 After students have eaten, they will clean up after themselves. This includes cleaning off the table and making sure they have not left any trash on floor or around the eating area. When students have finished picking up after themselves, café staff will direct students to dispose of trash and trays.

6 Students who bring a lunch from home and going to recess right after lunch (1st, Kg, 4th) will place lunch box in basket at east end of dining room. Students returning to class will keep lunch boxes with them at table.

7 Students will remain seated until their teacher returns to the café to pick them up.

8 When teacher returns to café, students will line up along outer walls of café. Teacher and students will exit dining room at east end.

On Fridays 4th graders may choose a seat anywhere in the café. This privilege will be continued if students show they can follow café rules, use indoor voices and keep order during their lunch time.

Students can earn an extra day of “Choose your seat” if they do well on Fridays.

School Directory

The online school directory is now available to all families in Skyward. This year the directory is based on an opt-in model. Families must choose to show their contact information in order to be visible in the directory.

To opt-in, click on "My Account" in the upper right corner of your Family Access account. From there, check the boxes for the information you wish to make visible under the School Directory section and then Save. Families can make changes to this section anytime throughout the school year.

What to do if you suspect a disability/Child Find:

If your child is age 2 ½ through 21, attends any school within the Hamilton Southeastern Schools boundaries or you live in our community, and you suspect your child may have a disability, you should contact us for more information.

· For children at least two and a half years of age, but not yet age-eligible for kindergarten, you should contact the Early Childhood Assessment Team at Brooks School Elementary School, 915-4250.

· For students who are eligible for kindergarten through age 21, you should contact your child’s teacher, school counselor or building administrator to discuss your concerns and explore the steps to be taken. If your child is not enrolled in public school, you should contact the counselor or building administrator in the building your child would attend if enrolled.

Response-to-Instruction (RtI)

RtI is a general education initiative designed to provide high quality instruction and interventions matched to student needs, and using learning rate over time and level of performance to make important educational decisions. The RtI model is based on a three-tiered model of service delivery with a focus on early intervention and prevention of academic and behavioral concerns. Data collected during this process provides valuable information regarding students’ educational progress and response to interventions. Students who do not demonstrate a response to well-implemented, scientifically-based interventions at the Tier 3 level would be referred for an educational evaluation to determine eligibility for special education. RtI is a component of HSE’s Child Find Process.

Lost and Found

If your student is missing their personal items, please have him/her take a look in our Lost and Found near the gym doors. Our Student Council will be laying our Lost and Found items in the hallway for students to look for their missing belongings before we take them to Goodwill. They will be placed there for 3 days and then donated. Please see the following dates when student items will be placed in the hallway:

September 17th
