Message from Superintendent Mike Johnson

One of the wonderful things about serving Creswell School District is the community's support for our fully articulated K-12 system. Administrators and staff at our elementary, middle, and high schools work collaboratively to prepare each student for the next level, at every level. While each of our schools has a unique mascot and culture, we operate as one team to support students and ensure they learn, gain skills, and are prepared for any post-secondary path they choose to pursue.

To represent this teamwork, we're excited to introduce a new district logo that we will begin incorporating into our communications. This logo WILL NOT be replacing the current school mascots and logos; the Bulldog, Tiger, and Mustang are important to each school's identity. Instead, this logo represents the support offered each student districtwide as they progress through our three schools towards graduation. Thank you for being an important part of the CSD One Team, One Dream community!

COVID-19 Dashboard

To transparently share information with the community, we have developed a COVID-19 dashboard that will be updated regularly and available on our website. This dashboard will provide current and cumulative information about positive/presumed cases of COVID-19 among our school community and the number of students and staff required to quarantine due to an exposure of which we've been made aware. To visit the dashboard, click here.

Summer Enrichment Program Feedback Requested

If your family participated in CSD's Summer Enrichment program this year, we'd like to hear from you. We are eager for feedback and look forward to receiving suggestions to help us improve the program in the future. Please take a moment to complete the survey and share your thoughts. If you had students in multiple programs, please complete the survey for each individual program. Thank you for sharing your opinions and time!

CSD 25+ Heroes

Kimberly Kuhnhausen, also known as Mrs. K, has been with Creswell School District since 1989 and is enjoying sharing her love of reading with many "2nd generation students." Mrs. K loves being surrounded by co-workers that support her ideas and leadership that allows her to learn and try new techniques. She encourages students to "Embrace the Odd," be themselves, and remain open to new things. Thank you, Mrs. K, for the many ways you go above and beyond for your students! We appreciate you!

National Principals Month

In honor of National Principals Month, we're glad to recognize and share our thanks with two of our special principals: Creswell Middle School's principal, Julie Johansen and Creslane Elementary principal, Amy Halley.

Principal Johansen is in her second year at CMS. When asked about what she enjoys most about working at CSD, she pointed to Creswell's staff and students. "The staff is hardworking, dedicated and selfless. They go the extra mile to make our school a great place for kids. The students are amazing, too. I love that they are unique, not afraid to be themselves, and willing to stretch themselves even when it is hard." She also shared how much she appreciates the collaboration between the principals at all three schools and how they work together to truly make Creswell "One Team, One Dream." Thank you, Principal Johansen, for your tireless work to help students succeed!

Creslane Elementary is fortunate to have Principal Amy Halley at the helm. This is Principal Halley's third year at Creslane and she is grateful for CES's amazing students and supportive community. Among the things Principal Halley enjoys most about working at CSD are her staff who she says are 100% dedicated to the success of our students and the support of community organizations like the Intergenerational Reading Collaboration (IRC) and others who partner to provide services to Creswell families. Principal Halley, we are grateful for you and your commitment to students all year long!

Thank you for encouraging students to wear their face coverings, wash their hands regularly, and distance to the extent possible. Creswell School District employs many mitigation strategies to help keep students in school and learning. Please contact the school and keep your student home if they are experiencing COVID systems or have been exposed to someone who has tested positive or is presumed to have COVID-19.
