Need to Know Information

End of Year (EOY) Testing: Important end of the year testing is now underway! We would like to encourage families ensure their students are present during these testing windows and get a good night's sleep and eat a nutritious breakfast each day! Remember, students can eat breakfast for free each morning!


CSCO Meeting: The May CSCO Meeting is Tuesday, May 10 at 5:30 PM in the data room next to the preschool commons area. We invite everyone to attend...even if you have never been able to come yet.


Cox CARE Mobile Coming to Crane: The Cox CARE Mobile will be coming to Crane one last time on Wednesday, May 11th to provide students with needed services. They will be offering PK/K immunizations and sports physicals for students in grades 5th-12th grades who plan on playing a school sport. Details are shown in the image below. If you would like a permission form sent home, please contact Nurse Tena through email, Dojo or phone. 417-725-5300 ext. 1402.


School Library Books Due: All library books that belong to the school are due Friday, May 20. If you see any school books at home, please send those to school with your child!


Basketball Camp: Elementary Basketball Camp for Kindergarten through 4th grade is being held Tuesday, May 17 through Thursday, May 19 from 3:30-5:00. Students who have registered for this camp will stay after school and be walked to the High School Gym. Please make sure your student has tennis shoes each day for camp. Students will need to be picked up at 5:00 PM from the High School Gym.


Still Important...

Save the Date: Kindergarten Graduation has been set for Tuesday, May 24 at 6 PM. Details will come out closer to time! Kindergarten students will have their photo taken in their caps and gowns on Thursday, May 5. If your child is absent that day, he/she will miss out on this opportunity.


Absences: If your child is going to be absent from school, regardless of reason, we need you to call the Elementary office to let us know. If you call before anyone is at school, please leave a voicemail letting us know your child's name and reason for absence. The office phone number is 417-723-5300 ext. 1301.


Transportation Changes: We understand plans can change throughout the day. If transportation plans change for your child, please call the office to let Whitney know so she can ensure your child gets the message. Some parents have been messaging teachers on Dojo and there are days teachers do not see messages until after students have left for the day. We would hate to miss an important message! The Elementary office number is 417-723-5300 ext. 1301.
