Parents + Students + Teachers= Success

Anne Nielsen (Principal)

What is PBIS?

The goal of PBIS (Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports) is to create a positive school climate in which students learn and grow. Positive school climate includes:

  • A feeling of safety
  • Respect
  • Engagement in learning
  • Involvement in school life
  • Shared vision
  • Involvement of teachers, students, and families

At Crystal Springs, we want students to be Safe, Respectful, Responsible Learners. Our mission is to provide a positive, safe, healthy, nurturing and respectful environment in which all students have the opportunity to become productive members of society. We will provide this through:

1. Development of clearly defined and consistent student expectations and accountabilities.

2. On-going teaching and modeling of expectations.

3. Educationally sound methods that foster student character, safety, academic excellence and individual citizenship.

Every Moment Matters

At Crystal Springs, every moment matters. We value students arriving on time and being here each and every day! Every day counts!

Parents- do you have a minute to thank a staff member?

Expressing gratitude can fill your cup and our staff member's cup. Positive connections between home and school foster mutual respect; in turn creating a rich learning environment. If you're interested in sharing a quick "thank you" with someone who is having a positive impact on your student, please email me at: with subject line: Gratitude for Staff

Bus Lane- please do not use

When dropping students off or picking students up, please do not use the bus lane. Our bus lane is used early in the morning until late into the evening for middle school runs. Please only use the parking lot or the parent-pick-up lot in the north end of our parking lot. We truly appreciate your cooperation with this.
