Creston Intermediate and Middle School Family Newsletter

Week of September 8, 2019

Dear Creston Families,

Tuesday October 1, 2019 will be Parent Conference Day. Students will not come to school as scheduled on this day; instead, you will be getting communication from one of your student's teachers to schedule a time to come to the school (along with your child!) between 11am - 7pm to discuss their growth and achievement throughout Quarter 1. Please mark your calendar with this important date, and stay tuned for more details!

Our next PTSA meeting is this Wednesday, September 11 at 5:30 pm.

The week of September 23 will be an exciting one at CIMS and within our district! This is the week of College Go! Week, and it will present students with numerous opportunities to celebrate and learn more about their future college opportunities as they begin the process of considering their options post-high school. Additionally, we will celebrate Pink Week during this week as well, to bring attention and focus to the fight against cancer.

I appreciate your support and ask that you reach out with any questions.

Parent Portal - Important Information

You can access the Parent Portal registration form by clicking here. You can also pick up a copy in the CIMS Office - completed forms must be turned in to the CIMS Main Office.

As a parent or guardian of a student attending a Warren school, you have online access to your child or children's courses, grades, attendance, discipline, and academic history. The student and parent portal has been upgraded to Tyler SIS Student 360. This new portal offers parents, students and district staff online access to student information via the Web on PCs or tablets or on a smartphone application — providing comprehensive functionality with a touch-friendly, intuitive interface.

You must obtain a username and password through your child's school (CIMS) in order to access your child's information. Once your information is verified (after completing the form linked above), a username and password will be generated by the school and given to you.

Social Media Connections

The BEST way for you to stay updated with important Creston/Warren information is by downloading the app (see above!)

You can follow Creston Intermediate and Middle School on Twitter: @CrestonIMS

You can also follow our PTSA Facebook Page: Creston IA & MS PTSA


The occasion may arise when the school district wants to recognize your child or your child's school. This may include your child's photo, your child's name or your child's work in district publications, newsletters, on school district websites, and in electronic/ social media or in staff training videos. We may also want to tell the media (including newspapers, television, and radio) about your child's achievements. We never knowingly release information about a student to anyone who wants to use it for commercial/ political purposes. However, we will honor your request to not include your child in these types of recognitions if you notify your child's school office in writing that you do not want this type of information released.

Warren Central Athletic Events

MSD Warren Township strives to maintain a safe and orderly environment for all students while in school and at after-school events, especially our Warren Central athletic events. We ask for your support in helping us achieve this by ensuring that your intermediate and middle school student is accompanied by an adult or older Warren Central sibling, who has a WCHS student ID.

Also, for your convenience, we are including a reminder about approved items that may/may not be brought into athletic events at Warren Central High School.
