Need to Know Information

Menu: The photo of the menu is pictured above. However, if you cannot read it, you can see the menu on the Crane R-III app. Tap "Menu" and then tap "Dining". You can select the date on the left hand side of the screen and both breakfast and lunch will be listed.


Students Attending Field Trip: Last week during the Dickerson Park Zoo Assembly some students chose to not be respectful. These behaviors from these students has led us to question which students will get to go to Branson this week. Any students who are not following the Pirate Code Expectations over the next two days will not attend the field trip as we do not want the poor behavior to reflect badly on our Pirates! Dr. Rogers will contact you if your child's actions warrant us to decide whether he/she can attend or not. Students who have had at least two strikes already this summer will not be going.


Acrobats of Shanghai Field Trip: We will be going to see the 11:00 AM show of the Acrobats of Shanghai in Branson, Missouri on Thursday, June 30. A small bottled water and a box of popcorn will be provided to ALL students. The buses will leave at 9:30 AM that morning to arrive at Mickey Gilley's Acrobat of Shanghai Theater. It is important for students to arrive on time that morning. If a student arrives after the buses leave, he/she will not be able to attend the field trip. If parents/ guardians would like to purchase a ticket for the show, they will have to call the theater to purchase tickets. Please know they will most likely not be seated with the school group. We will eat sack lunches, provided by the school, at Stockstill Park, weather permitting, after the show before returning to school. If your child would like to bring his/her own lunch, please keep in mind, it will be sitting on a hot bus for a few hours and there will not be a way to heat anything up in a microwave. This field trip is free to students, however, if a student would like to purchase concessions he/she will need to bring their own money.


Last Day of Summer School: On Friday, July 1, we will be having the Crane Fire Department bring the fire truck to spray down students! Students will need to wear their swimsuits under their clothes that day and bring sunscreen, a towel, and a complete set of clothes to change into before dismissal. Students must also bring shoes which can get wet as they must wear shoes the entire time. We also have a fun surprise planned for the students on this last day, so we don't want students to miss it!
