Crawford's Corner... A Message from the Principal

It is hard to believe that the fall semester is coming to a close. This semester has brought me much joy and happiness. I have enjoyed seeing our football players working hard to make it to the playoffs; our AVID students planning community service projects; our ECHS students on their way to earning their first college credits; and so much more that makes our school Always Victorious! So, as the holiday season is upon us and the break is a little over two weeks away, I would like to leave you with a quote from D.M. Dellinger, "This is my wish for you: peace of mind, prosperity through the year, happiness that multiplies, health for you and yours, fun around every corner, energy to chase your dreams, joy to fill your holidays!" Warmest thoughts to each of you this holiday season. I will be sending each of you peace, love, and light!


The time is almost here! All Crockett students with parent consent will be receiving Chromebooks on January 8, 2017. In order for your student to receive the device, please sign consent by December 8th. For more information about the Chromebooks, please click here.
