A Note from Ms. Coyle

We have had many questions about whether Crawfordsville Schools will remain open or move to a short term virtual learning. Our goal is to remain open. Staff has been asked to prepare for the possibility of virtual. CCSC will follow recommendations from the Montgomery County Health Department.

A Note from Mrs. Peacock

This week I am very thankful for our community and how so many people support our students at Nicholson. Just this year we've had individuals and organizations that have donated money, time, winter coats, food and much more to help our families. This allows many of our students to feel more secure, safe and loved. We can't thank these individuals and organizations enough for the support Nicholson has received. Our staff, students and their families are very grateful.

Second Step

This week our students reviewed lesson 5 of Second Step - understanding feelings. Identifying others’ feelings using physical, verbal, and situational clues is essential to empathy development. Understanding that people can have different feelings in similar situations, and that feelings can change, helps students develop empathy and perspective-taking skills. Accurately identifying others’ feelings helps students make friends and avoid conflicts.
