Manor's Message

Happy May Cougars,

Can you believe we only have 16 days left in the school year? With that being said, April showers bring May flowers - the end of the year comes with our last EOC test and finals, but we also have performances where are students get to shine. We have exciting events almost every night for the remainder of the school year and look forward to seeing you at celebrations like our Cougar Gold and Trustee awards, the National Honor Society induction ceremony and Crockett's 2023 Graduation ceremony.

Proud Principal,

Kori Manor

PTA Healthy Lifestyles

Multilingual Guides on Helping Kids Cope

Life is full of ups and downs. It is normal for our emotional state to change on a day-to-day basis and in periods throughout our lives. Many difficult situations, like the death of a loved one or the COVID-19 pandemic, are unavoidable. When our minds are healthy and strong, we are more resilient to life’s challenges, able to use healthy coping methods, have better relationships, maintain our overall health and well-being, and prevent chronic illnesses. That’s why it is important to be proactive about our mental health! Check out these videos in English and Spanish to see examples of families having conversations about mental health in their daily lives!

Spotlight on Loneliness and Isolation

As National PTA and Learning Heroes’ recent poll—A Year Into the Pandemic: Parents’ Perspectives on Academics, Assessments and Educationfound, “more than 7 in 10 parents (72%) indicated they worried ‘a lot’ or ‘some’ about their child missing out on important social interactions at school or with friends, more than any other issue/topic.” Check out these resources to better understand what loneliness and isolation can look like and what your family can do about it.

If you need more support, please reach out to your child’s counselor at Crockett or check the PTA Healthy Minds: Community Resource Finder.
