Crozet Connection

School Quarterly Newsletter - June 2015

News from the Principal

We end the school year with a national award - 2015 U.S. Department of Education Green Ribbon School acknowledging Crozet Elementary's achievements in taking a comprehensive approach to sustainability. The trip to Washington, D.C. was amazing. It was such a great honor to accept on behalf of our school community. I will be hanging the banner in the front of the school building. The national plague will be hung somewhere visible for everyone to see.

To add to our successful school year is our amazing PTO, parent volunteers, our PTO Eagle Time Enrichment Program and the tremendous fundraising support from our local businesses, organizations, churches and Crozet's community to help our eagles SOAR!

During the summer break of sun and fun, our Safe Routes to School Project will be in the completion stage. Our PTO and Walk/Bike to School parent coordinator, Jessica Simmons will be planning a walk/bike to school day of celebration.

Have a safe, healthy, active and relaxing summer break!

News from the Clinic with Mrs. Hajek

1. If your child kept any medication in the clinic during the school year it will need to be picked up by June 12th. 2.All rising 6th graders will need to have an up to date DTAP booster vaccine before entering middle school. 3.Rising kindergarteners will need to have their physical/vaccination forms turned into the office before they begin school. 4.If your child will need to have medicine kept at school for the following school year you will need to complete a "Request for Giving Medicine" form. These forms can be obtained from school, and need to be done on a yearly basis. If your child has any special needs or you have any concerns I am happy to meet over the summer break so that we have a plan in place. Summer is a good time to schedule an appointment with your child's doctor for a regular check-up to discuss concerns and complete vaccinations if needed. These appointment times fill up quickly so now is a good time to call and schedule. I wish everyone a healthy, relaxing and fun filled summer!

News from Art with Ms. McReynolds

It has been a wonderful year in the art room! I have really enjoyed getting to know your children and to see the budding artist we have at Crozet!

4th and 5th grade have ended the year with some wonderful architectural drawings of Victorian houses and castles. 3rd grade has finished up the year with weaving. 2nd grade has been working on positive and negative space name designs. KG and 1st grade have been busy making farm animals, which were for the end of the year music performance. I hope everyone has a relaxing and wonderful summer with their family!

We had great weather for field day. Everyone enjoyed getting wet at the water stations. We had a nice cool treat. Ask your child what their favorite station was at field day. If your child is missing a water bottle, lunch container, or jacket/coat, please come check out the lost and found box next to the gym. There are lots of items waiting for their owners to come and pick them up.

News from Music with Mrs. Brown

Our second & third grade students explored music from many cultures this year. We showcased music from across the globe with a performance of pieces from Hawaii, Japan, The United States, Spain, Latina America, and Israel. We made an iMovie of world culture class projects featuring Ancient China, West Africa, as well as multicultural songs and games in music class.
