Picture Re-take information for March 3rd

Hello Crystal Springs Elementary School Families,

Retake day is here! Firefly Images wants to share with you our very last opportunity for pictures at your school this year! We are so excited to be back in your community for another picture day. This is once again a by appointment only picture day. We are accepting appointments for those who need a retake and those who are coming to the camera for the very first time.

Date: Wednesday, March 3rd from 4pm to 6pm

Location: Crystal Springs Elementary School

Once again, we will be set up in our socially distanced photo tents and you will be happy to know we have added heat. Since we will be masking up, we ask that you do the same until the moment we take that picture. We will be following all COVID protocols for this activity and are happy to say we have a perfect safety record this year.

After photo day, your pictures will be mailed directly to you to save you from having to pick them up… Or if you ordered a digital product, it will be sent directly to your email.

If you are getting a retake, don’t forget to return your complete picture package to the photographer in order to fulfill your order.

Link to Sign-up/Order form:


Retakes? Just bring your entire original picture package.

Retake of Digital Images? Just tell your photographer.

First time to camera? Once again, let your photographer know.

And don't forget to bring your smile... We could give you one of ours, but you look much better with your own smile on!

Remember, if anyone in your family is sick, please don't come see us at the camera. We will figure out a way to get your picture. Let's all stay safe and healthy.

Thank you!

Highly Capable Testing

Grade 5 Update

The highly capable department will close the NNAT3 screener on February 28th at 8:00 p.m. If you intend to take the screener, please do so by that time. They will send you an invitation to sign up for Iowa Assessments if your student’s screener meets the 85% score needed. We would like to complete Iowa Assessments by the middle of March so your student can be prepared to sign up for the appropriate middle school classes during registration. Please sign up for a slot to test as soon as possible.

Students in grades 2-4

We plan to begin online assessments of students who were referred for screening and assessments once grades 5-7 testing is done. We will send out invitations to test toward the end of March or beginning of April. We will conduct all testing online.

Students in Grade 1

We will conduct our universal screening and assessment when first grade students return to the buildings. Classroom teachers will assist in giving the NNAT3 screener. Parents will have the option to bring their student to school on the specific testing day even if they are opting not to have their student return to the classroom. The NNAT3 will then be proctored by someone other than the classroom teacher. We will let families know the date and time of testing at their school by email.


We will compile current data from WaKIDS and iReady to compile a highly capable watch list for our current kindergarten students. No further screeners need to be given.
