Craddock's Weekly Update

The next Weekly Update will be out on Monday, July 24th!

Mrs. Menta's Message

Happy Summer Craddock Families!

I just wanted to say a quick hello to all of you, hoping summer has started off strong and you are soaking up all the extra time with your child! We have not slowed down too much at Craddock, as we are working hard on placements, schedules and getting the building in tip top shape for the return of our 1st and 2nd grade friends! It will be here before we know it!

Please take a close look at all of the important information shared below. I hope it helps give you an idea of what's to come and how to be prepared for the start of school. One of the most commonly asked questions is "When will my child find out his/her teacher?" You can expect to get an email sent to the email address you have in Final Forms on Friday, August 4th between 11:00-12:00 p.m. This email will include your child's placement letter. If for some reason you do not receive this email, please reach out to Craddock's main office asap.

We are so excited to welcome everyone back, but for now, settle in and enjoy this wonderful time with family making lots of new memories. We look forward to seeing you back in late July/early August for building tours and/or Popsicles on the Playground!

Take care!

Welcome Back!

We are so excited to officially welcome back all of our 1st and 2nd grade students on Monday, August 14th during our annual Meet and Greet. At this drop in event, you and your child can bring in all school supplies, visit the classroom and meet the teacher. It's a wonderful opportunity to see old friends and meet new ones in preparation for a great year!

To help with parking and traffic flow in the building, we encourage all students with last names beginning with the letters A-L to come between 3:00-4:00 and those with last names beginning with M-Z to attend 4:00-5:00. Thank you in advance for helping the teachers and with parking. We hope to see you all there!
