The annual Juneteenth celebration marks a day in 1865 when enslaved Texans learned they'd be free - two months after Robert E. Lee surrendered and ended the Civil War and two and a half years after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation. Initially a uniquely Texan observance, Juneteenth has now been recognized in some form in every corner of the country.

Leader in Me at Craig Hill

At Craig Hill Elementary School, we are a Leader in Me School. Leader in Me (LiM) empowers students with the leadership and life skills they need to thrive in the 21st century.


At Craig Hill, the staff will be taking a survey called the Measurable Results Assessment (MRA). We are asking parents to take the MRA as well to gain your insight.


The purpose of the Measurable Results Assessment is to identify ways to improve in the coming year.


Survey Link for Parents: https://www.leaderinme.com/s/craig-hill-elem-ny/parent


The survey will take approximately 13 minutes. Please add comments at the end. This is great information for Craig Hill.
