It is hard to believe we are 4 weeks into our Learn at Home journey - our students, families, and staff members are all to be celebrated for their great work in helping to make this a success! A special shoutout to all of our Creston students who emailed or sent photos/videos to your teachers for Appreciation Week - our teachers are so valuable to us, and we know they appreciated their students reaching out! A huge thank you to our students and families who worked so hard to get course requests in for our 5th, 6th, and 7th graders this past week! Well done!
