Crestdale October Parent News


Fall Is Here

Crestdale Families,

We have had an eventful few weeks to finish out September with our K.I.S.S./Book Fair event, Homecoming Spirit Week, Boston Run, and Good Behavior Field Trips to COPE. It has been wonderful to see so many families involved with these events. We have more fun to come this month and look forward to interacting with students and their families.

It is my pleasure to serve our Crestdale families. Please reach out to me anytime if you have questions.

Mrs. Jenny Elorreaga

Important Reminders

Transportation Changes:

If you are going to change how your student is going home, please contact the office 765-973-3415. This needs to be done before 1:00 of that day. We would like to ensure all of our students arrive to their destination safely.

Bus Safety:

The safety of our students is of upmost importance including while riding the bus to and from school and during field trips. We will be addressing bus safety and bus expectations with all students and work with bus drivers and bus aids to ensure expectations are being met. We also encourage families to talk with your child about the importance of staying seated while riding the bus, following adult instructions, keeping hands to ourselves, and using kind words. We want to encourage a safe and positive start and end of the day for all students and appreciate your support in our efforts.

Outdoor Recess:

With the ever changing weather, please remind students to dress for the weather and wear a light jacket as the classes are still having outdoor recess and it can be chilly at times.


We are still in need of ECSE paraprofessionals for our preschool classrooms and a title I para to work with grades K-4. We are also in need of substitute teachers and/or substitute paraprofessionals as well as a full-time building sub. If you are interested please apply online at or contact me for more details. Volunteers are also welcome to help monitor the lunchroom, make copies, attend field trips, etc. Please reach out if you are interested (a background check must be completed).
