Welcome to October!

Hello Crissman families,


We are moving along here at Crissman!


M-Step Parent Reports Coming Home Monday: Students in grades 4-6 who took the M-Step at Crissman in the Spring of 2021, will receive their parent reports to take home next week. Please check your child's folder/backpack for the report on their progress in English Language Arts and Mathematics according to the State of Michigan. If you have questions on the results, please reach out to your child's teacher or me for further clarification.


Conferences: Fall conferences will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 9th in the evening and Thursday, Nov. 11 in the afternoon and evening. Conferences will be virtual. Sign up dates for conferences will come later in October.

Halloween Information

We all know that Halloween is a very exciting time of year for our children! By working together, we can make Halloween a safe and happy experience for all of our Crissman Cougars.


When shopping and planning for the perfect Halloween costume with your child, please avoid the following: masks, weaponry (including toys), blood, gore, overly scary costumes, and any character from a rated “R” movie: (ex. Freddy Krueger from A Nightmare on Elm Street, Jason Voorhees from Friday the 13th, Michael Myers from Halloween and the Scream ghost mask, etc.)


Face painting is a good alternative to wearing a mask. Students whose costumes do not adhere to these guidelines will not be permitted to wear the costume. Thank you in advance for your respect of our preschool through 6th grade student population.


Halloween Festivities- Passing out Halloween Treats will not be permitted. Classroom Teachers/Grade-levels will be having classroom activities on Friday, October 29th. More information about Classroom Celebrations will be sent home from your child's teacher. The School-Wide Outdoor Parade will be at 11:15am. Parade information will come out on Friday, October 22nd.


Friday, October 29th is a half-day of school.
