Need to Know Information

MAP Testing Continues This Week: Students in 3rd-6th grades will continue MAP testing this week! It is important for your child to arrive to school on time each day and be in school all day since testing occurs throughout the day!


Kindergarten Graduation: Kindergarten Graduation is Tuesday, May 24 at 6:00 PM in the High School Gym. Doors will open at 5:20 PM. Students will need to be in their classroom by 5:30 so we can ensure we get their caps and gowns on them in time for the ceremony!


JH Basketball Camp: Junior High Basketball Camp for current 5th grade through 7th grade students who are planning on playing JH Basketball next year is this Tuesday, May 24 through Thursday, May 26 from 3:30-5:30. Students will need to be picked up from the Jr. High School Gym at 5:30 each day.


Summer School: You can still register students who are incoming kindergarten through incoming 8th graders for summer school! The flyer below explains all the fun options we have for our older students! Summer School is encouraged for all students! If you need an extra form, please let us know so we can send one home or you can stop by the office to fill one out!


Field Day: Elementary Field Day will be held throughout the day on Tuesday, May 31, weather permitting. Students should wear clothes that can get wet and tennis shoes. They should also bring a towel and sunscreen along with a bottle of water.


End of Year Awards Ceremony: We will be holding our End of Year Awards Ceremonies on Friday, June 3 at the following times:

Kindergarten through 2nd grades will be from 12:45 PM-1:45 PM.

3rd - 6th grades will be from 2:00 PM-3:00 PM.

Your child's teacher will let you know if your child is receiving an award prior to the last day of school.

Class Placements for 2022-2023 School Year: We are excited to try something new this year to allow students and teachers the chance to meet earlier and start getting excited for the upcoming school year! On the last day of school, students who will be in 1st - 6th grades next year will get to find out who their teacher will be. If our new staff members can be in Crane that day, then students will get to meet their teacher!


Still Important...

Absences: If your child is going to be absent from school, regardless of reason, we need you to call the Elementary office to let us know. If you call before anyone is at school, please leave a voicemail letting us know your child's name and reason for absence. The office phone number is 417-723-5300 ext. 1301.


Transportation Changes: We understand plans can change throughout the day. If transportation plans change for your child, please call the office to let Whitney know so she can ensure your child gets the message. Some parents have been messaging teachers on Dojo and there are days teachers do not see messages until after students have left for the day. We would hate to miss an important message! The Elementary office number is 417-723-5300 ext. 1301.
