Mrs. Menta's Message

Hello Craddock Families and Happy July!

I hope this message finds you happy, healthy and in the midst of making new memories as a family! It's been a wonderful summer so far, with lots still to come!

I have included a few updates below to help prepare you for all that's coming. We have our first two building tours and our first popsicle event this week! Please see below for more details! I hope to see lots of you there!

Also, I recorded a short video for all of my 1st and 2nd grade friends. I have been thinking about them lots over the summer and can't wait to see all of them these next few weeks! Feel free to share this video with them if you have a few minutes! Thank you!

I am back in the office daily starting Wednesday, 7/26, so if you need anything at all, don't hesitate to reach out. My contact information is listed below.

Have a wonderful rest of the summer and I hope to see lots of you soon during tours and/or Popsicles on the Playground!

Take care,

Kim Menta

Cruisin' Craddock Fundraiser (Parents are invited to walk with their child this year. Stay tuned for more information!)

Welcome Back!

We are so excited to officially welcome back all of our 1st and 2nd grade students on Monday, August 14th during our annual Meet and Greet. At this drop in event, you and your child can bring in all school supplies, visit the classroom and meet the teacher. It's a wonderful opportunity to see old friends and meet new ones in preparation for a great year!

To help with parking and traffic flow in the building, we encourage all students with last names beginning with the letters A-L to come between 3:00-4:00 and those with last names beginning with M-Z to attend 4:00-5:00. Thank you in advance for helping the teachers and with parking. We hope to see you all there!
