Crenshaw Cub Connections

Crenshaw Families and Parents,

Dear Crenshaw Families,

I am so excited to share news about the Crenshaw Spark Park with you. We have been accepted to join with Spark Parks to fund, design, and build a new playground for Crenshaw. It is going to be AWESOME. We have a special committee that has already started the process. We are in the planning stages, deciding what kind of equipment and features we would like to have. We are also starting the process of fundraising. The more money we are able to raise the more fun with playground will be. The best part of the Spark Park is that is it not only for the students to enjoy during the day, but the park will also be open for the community after school. We need your help and support.

You will be seeing LOTS of things happening to raise funds for the playground.

  • One of which is the great Gobble Wobble Dance. Its happening THIS FRIDAY. The event will be during school hours but ONLY for those with a ticket. see below for information on that.
  • Students are also encouraged to donate $2.00 every Friday in November to wear PJs to school . What a fun way to support our new playground.
  • We will be taking an aerial photo of ALL students and staff Thursday, December 2nd. It is VERY important that students are here ON TIME. It is also important that they wear the assigned color shirt in order to collaborate to make our design. Please see color assignments below.

We hope you will help us in our efforts toward this great new addition to our school.
