We are off and running!

Attention Crimson Point Community,


I have always felt so blessed to be a part of such a giving community. In the past four years, Did you know that over the last four years Crimson Point families have donated over 35,000 items to the local food bank, the FFA Christmas baskets, and to the Weekend Backpack Program? Crimson Point has blown my mind year after year with the amount of food we have raised for the yearly canned food drive. We have two opportunities to give in the next two months.


Turkeys for Teachers - PTA, Ridleys, and Mr. Jensen have set a goal to get every Crimson Point employee a turkey or a gift card for a turkey by November 18th. Such an easy way to make a big impact on all of our staff who have worked so hard through this pandemic. If you have any questions, feel free to call Mr. Jensen.


December: Crimson Point Annual Food Drive - In December we will continue the culture of taking care of our community by having our annual canned food drive. All items will be donated to one of three places. The KSD Weekend Backpack Program - We identify students who might need food support over weekends and holidays and send them home with a bag of kid-friendly food. FFA Food Drive - Food baskets are put together and given to families in need right before Christmas break. Kuna Food Bank - All donations that don't fit into the kid-friendly or Christmas dinner box areas will be donated to the Kuna Food Bank.


Parent-Teacher Partnership - As we dive deep into the school year we are seeing some unfortunate trends with student behavior. Students are struggling to be attentive or want to work when asked to work in the classroom. Teachers are spending more time than ever with reminders of behavior or learning expectations and the time lost is valuable. I encourage all parents to continue to speak nightly with their students about their school day. Clearly communicate your expectations as a parent to your student and let them know that you communicate often with your classroom teacher. The pandemic has been hard on our students and it is going to take a purposeful effort between the school and home to get things back to normal.


Possible questions to ask about your student's day? Your goal should be to get more than one-word answers.


What was your favorite part of your day? Why? Followup with specifics. What game did you play at recess? Who did you play with?


What is your least favorite part of your day? What did you do to work through it? What can you do next time?


Do you have any questions about your day? The goal of this question is to let your student know they can talk to you about anything. It shows them that you are a safe person who isn't going to judge or get angry or be upset if they want to talk about "the tough stuff."


How did you show kindness today? How did you show GRRR expectations to your school or your teacher today?


Did you get all your work done today? Why or why not? Did you give your best effort today? Why or why not?


Respectfully,


Mr. Jensen

Crimson Point Pick-up and Drop- Off's

We ask that if you are looking for an extended goodbye between you and your student to park and have your goodbye in the parking lot. The drop off lane is for quick in and out drop offs or pick ups. Please pull as far forward as possible to ensure we can fit as many cars into the drop off space as possible. Do not drop off or pick up right in front of the main doors if there is space in front of you to pull forward. (The photo below was created by 5th graders last year to help support this ongoing issue.)


Supervision will not be outside until 8:30 a.m. Please do not drop off before 8:30 a.m.
