Staff Update: November 14th

Crestview Elementary and Nuevas Fronteras


  • Way-to-go Crestview Student Council and Katie Raso for hosting the Crestview Movie Night last Thursday night! The turn-out was fantastic, and the movie was super-fun!
  • Congratulations to Marjorie Blazovich, Nuevas Fronteras 2nd grader, for her 2nd place finish in the Mathnasium of Woodbury's 2013 Trimathlon Contest!
  • A huge thanks to the iSquad, Crestview's Student Team of Techies, for hosting the Crestview staff meeting/Appi hour on Wednesday. They are an impressive group! (Thanks also to Tammy Wilson and Erin Polta for their iSquad leadership!)
  • High-fives to the NFSI 1st grade team for a rockin' sing-a-pa-looza last Thursday. The families loved it!
  • Happy Birthday to Laurie Schmillen (11/18), Laura Trelles (11/20), and Gretchen Guenter (11/21)!

Know of other staff/students who have done something great? (or even just kind of cool?) PLEASE send a note to Tina so we can celebrate them here!

A Reminder About Classroom Events:

Please notify the Office when you are scheduling a classroom or grade-level event to which parents are invited. There are super busy times of the year when we will need to coordinate these events to balance space available in the building and in the parking lot. These events will then also be posted to SharePoint. Thanks!

NFSI All School Morning Meeting: November 15th

The next all school morning meeting for Nuevas Fronteras students will be at 9:30 a.m. tomorrow, Friday, November 15th. Gracias in advance to the 3rd grade team for facilitating!


The Nuevas Fronteras PTSO is hosting a "Kids Fiesta" fundraiser from 5:00-9:00 p.m. THIS Friday (Nov. 15th). Bingo, games, food and more.... olé!


Please, please, please come out and grab dinner at Wendy's in Cottage Grove next Tuesday night, Nov. 19th! Crestview will receive a percentage of their profits for all sales between 5-7 p.m. It is a wonderful opportunity to build up our school community! (And you don't have to cook dinner!)

Want to add something to this staff update?

The staff update will typically come out on via email on Thursday or Friday each week. If you have an item that you would like to include in this bulletin, please email it to Tina by Wednesday noon, and we’ll do our best to add it to the bulletin. Let’s work together to use this bulletin as our primary method for making all-school announcements, and hopefully by distributing information in one central way, we can decrease the number of emails that we all receive.
