Caribou Trails Update

Published by Crawford Elementary March 6, 2022

March Into Spring!

This has been a very busy week, and we have had a lot going on!

Mrs. Henry, the PTO board of Mrs. Fleming, Mrs. Ohm, Mrs. Chipman and Mrs. Hiener and scores of volunteers worked tirelessly setting up the Book Fair. Mrs. Henry needs some Dr. Scholls after all the time manning the cash register! To all of the parents, grandparents and Air Force volunteers who made it all happen-thank you!

If you didn't have a chance to shop at the fair or didn't find what you wanted, you have a couple more chances to shop. This coming week the Book Fair will be at Anderson, and many books appropriate for younger students will be added to the stock brought over from Crawford. The Book Fair will still benefit Crawford, however, so be sure to drop in to find a just right book.

If you would rather shop online, please find the link below and order directly from Scholastic. Crawford will continue to receive credit for these purchases through March 13.

The Science Fair was facilitated by Mrs. Gryga and went smashingly! Students were nervous and excited and so happy to share what they had learned with the judges and their classmates. There were about 100 science projects submitted. A lot of hard work goes into completing a science fair project and EVERY student who completed a project should be proud of themselves.

The students going to the district science fair are:

Violet Wolfe and Alexis Sartin

Dylan Kester, Elden Wier and Samuel Cline

Gabriel Peebles

Elly Bench

Alyvia Mercier

Colton, Rosslyn and Presley Russell

Alara Jiskru, Katherine Smith and Kailyn Colburn

Elyse Butler and Jaquelyn Jones

Priscilla Eicholz

Sore Reed

Shreya Thapa

Eithun Hunt

Logan Sigmund

Koen Yancheck and Max Perkins

Kaleb McDaniel

Bailey Taggart

And finally, Spirit Week was a great success! See the picture of Wacky Wednesday and see our Crawford Caribou Facebook page for photographic evidence!

Phew! We need to store up some strength for the last quarter - good thing we have Spring Break coming up March 14-18. If you want to plan some activities, click the button below for lots of springtime fun to come!
