Parent Teacher Conferences

If you have not yet scheduled your Parent Teacher Conference please contact your teacher to get on their calendar.


Extended Absences

The Crest View administration and teachers have seen an increase in extended vacations for families recently and understand that many families need to do so for their family's well being.


Should a child take an extended vacation, we ask that you work with the classroom teacher to assign work through materials and for the students to refer to the Launch Day on SeeSaw and Schoology. Due to the teacher's in-person teaching responsibilities, they do not post daily assignments in SeeSaw or Schoology. The assigned work with hands on materials can keep the child in sync with the class.

As a staff, we agreed that the following student attendance practices will be followed:


  1. If a student is not in attendance for non-medical reasons, the days away will be counted as an absence

  2. Students that are sick should be kept at home in order to rest and get better. If the illness is longer than two days, please reach out to your child's teacher and the administration so that we can devise a plan to keep your child on track in the curriculum.

  3. Students cannot be moved into an online class during an extended absence. Classroom cultures have been established and students are grouped and worked together based on the teacher’s relationship with the students.

Creation Station News

Our annual CV book fair is back and it is better than ever. We will be hosting an online book fair supporting our local Boulder Bookstore February 16-25. You can shop in person at Boulder Book Store, on their website, or call the store and place an order over the phone. Just mention Crest View at checkout! Everything they sell counts toward our fair (including books for adults, puzzles, and even chocolate bars).

A small amount of each purchase comes back to our Crest View Creation Station for the purchase of new books.

To celebrate the fair, we will also have two author virtual spotlights throughout the week. Amy McCulloch, who will be promoting her new book Unleashed (sequel to Jinxed) and Joanna Ho, author of Eyes That Kiss in the Corners. Both books will be available to purchase during that week.

Please see attached flyer for more information.

Counselor Corner

Dear Families,


I’ve been trying to look up and around more during my walks so that I notice the seasonal and life cycle changes that are occurring at any given time. This is one way that I am navigating pandemic life; to help me feel connected when daily life is so different from what it was.


Colorado is home to three species of bluebirds; the Mountain Bluebird, Western Bluebird and Eastern Bluebird. They build their nests as early as February to April.

The symbolic meaning of the bluebird includes the arrival of spring, happiness, prosperity, and good luck.


In terms of the school year cycle, it’s hard to believe that just four months remain. My upcoming class lessons will focus on enhancing social skills, increasing emotional regulation and discussing aspects of diversity, positive self-identity and community membership. The lessons will be tailored for each grade level.


Please remember that I am always available to answer questions, help you find resources and to meet with you and/or your student. The best and fastest way to reach me is by email. I look forward to hearing from you.


Sincerely,


Naomi
