Craddock's Weekly Update
For the Week of February 6, 2023
Mrs. Menta's Message
Good evening Craddock families!
I hope you had a wonderful week and are warm and cozy at home with family this evening. I am typing this message from a Panera in Canton while my son is at baseball practice. Although I love quiet Friday nights at home, this isn't a bad place to get some things done and enjoy some delicious mac and cheese!
I wanted to take a brief moment to provide any needed reassurance following a small event we had take place at Craddock today. We had a student in need and reached out for support from our local police department. They were quick to respond and came to Craddock with an ambulance and police cars. We did our best to keep traffic around the office to a minimum during this, but I am sure some students saw the first responders enter Craddock, which may have made them nervous. The student we needed support for is doing well and we are very grateful for the quick response from the Aurora Police Department and ambulance team. If you hear anything from your child, please reassure him/her everyone is doing okay.
We battled some frigid temperatures this week and it was a great reminder to make sure to communicate how important it is your child has the appropriate clothing to play outside. We have noticed kids with no boots, thin jackets and not many layers on. We do have items we can loan out to help, but those are limited. Thank you in advance for packing all that's needed for your child to play safely and comfortably outside in the cold temperatures. They need that fresh air!
Have a wonderful weekend whatever it may be filled with. We look forward to seeing our adorable 1st and 2nd graders back on Monday!
