Skate Night a Huge Success! Carnival Coming Up!

Wow! Skate night was a huge success! We were so happy to have had an excellent turnout of students, parents and volunteers and there were smiles and laughter throughout the event. Thank you so much to everyone who came and skated, to those who volunteered to hand out skates and helmets, sell food, or monitor the skating.

The best part of the whole night was stopping to take a look around. One could see knots of people talking and laughing, see children skating and visiting and getting sweaty and tired then eating pizza and cookies, and it felt as if we were getting back to normal. We are hoping to have similar success on April 29 with our Carnival.

Please be looking out for a signup genius from the PTO for the Carnival. We are only able to put on events with help from our community, so please consider volunteering. We are a fun crew and the community service can be added to a servicemembers Page 2. Think about it and sign up so we can bring more fun and excitement to our community on April 29 at the carnival!

Take care and see you in the car line!

April Month of the Military Child Celebrations

We are into April and the Month of the Military Child! Around the school doors are being decorated and bulletin boards are going up. We are happy to celebrate our students and their families this month and throughout the year!

April 15 we will celebrate the Day of the Military Child. This is the day we wear purple in support of our children and families. Our PTO has many ideas and can always use support from volunteers to make this memorable for our students.

April 29, from 5:00-6:30 we will have the Crawford Carnival, following the base wide parade. This is also meant as a community event welcoming the Anderson families to Crawford and an excellent time to enjoy springtime weather and time together. Please come, enjoy the carnival and get familiar with the school and staff. We welcome everyone and would love to have airmen and family members volunteer to carry off this very large lift.

Be looking out for information from our PTO about grade level donations for the carnival. We will be asking for specific items by grade level and would appreciate you picking up an extra item at the Commissary to help us put this on. More information coming soon!

Also, we will be selling prepaid coupons for carnival events. Bristol's Shave Ice will be in the Commons selling their awesome products! We are planning to have volunteers set up the game booths and sell the food, so everyone is welcome and invited to volunteer. Many volunteers will be necessary, so if you know a group of airmen or students who would like to help, have them get in touch with the school or PTO. Thank you!

Of course, the entire month of April will host the PTO Month of the Military Child Door Decorating contest! What an excellent way to celebrate our students and families. These will still be up at the Carnival on April 29, so be sure to walk around the building to admire the hard work and creativity of our students and teachers.

Teacher Appreciation week will come up later in May. Be on the lookout for more information from PTO about planned activities and opportunities to recognize our stellar Crawford teachers.
