The Crissman Connection

September 23, 2022

Hello Crissman families!

It was a great week! I would like to thank the Kindness crew for a great assembly kicking off our Raise Craze Fundraiser! The students loved coming together and hearing all about the fantastic things that they can do to spread kindness to Crissman, our Community and our World!

We are hoping to get 1,000 Acts of Kindness!

A Little Spot of Kindness by Diane Alber

This week our students got to watch the first eposide of the Mrs. Papastamatis Show! We talked about Assembly Expecatations and I read them a story about a spot of kindness. If you see your child come home with smiley sticker on their hand, be sure to ask them about it.

Elementary Handbook Reminder to 5th and 6th Grade

We had an informative assembly with our 5th and 6th-grade students about behavior in school, on the bus, and/or on school property. We spoke about the importance of being kind through your actions and your words to others.

Taken from the Handbook: A student’s right to a public education carries with it a responsibility to know and observe school rules. These rules help minimize distractions that disrupt learning and help to maintain a safe learning environment.

The handbook is below for reference.

We Need You!

Crissman would love for you to join our team and be a lunch supervisor! The hours are from 12:00 pm-1:15 pm. We are flexible with days and provide lots of smiles and hugs.

Lunch Monitors are an important part of safety, service, and supervision of students during eating and recess times. We will work with your schedule to fill our daily allocation of positions. Click below on the Edu Staff button to apply.
