Crow Island Parent Newsletter

October 10, 2022

Dear Crow Island Families,

It was a pleasure seeing all of our families show up to cheer on students during our annual Run-a-thon last week. I want to thank our PTO for all of their efforts and planning. We also enjoyed having Misericordia and the Athletes here to help cheer on our runners! In addition, I want to thank Coach Sweene and Coach Mendoza for their planning and organization. Our students ran a collective 329 miles and it was a huge success.

This week, we are looking forward to partnering with families during conferences. These collaborative conversations are intended to provide a snapshot of where your child is academically and socially emotionally. During the conference, you will work with teachers to complete a collaborative conference form that can be revisited throughout the year.

Happy Monday!
