From the CRES PTO…

Thank you for the positive response to this year’s spirit wear! Orders have been submitted to the vendor and we look forward to delivery mid-September.


Our first of only two major fundraisers this year is the Roadrunner Rally. It will take place on Thursday, October 6. Leading up to the fun-filled event, students will be rallying for pledges from friends, family, neighbors, coaches, etc. Information regarding this amazing FUNdraiser will be coming home with your child in the near future!


PTO Open Forum meetings are held on the first Tuesday of every month (no meeting in December). All CRES parents & guardians are welcome and encouraged to attend – it is a great opportunity to hear what is going on at CRES and get involved! The first meeting of this school year will be held Tuesday, September 6th at 7:00pm in the Art Room. We look forward to seeing you there!


Please mark your calendar for the following upcoming events & meetings:

· Tuesday, September 6 – Open Forum Meeting at 7:00pm in the Art Room

· Friday, September 23 - Grillin’ & Chillin’
This FREE evening of food and fun will be held at the school from 5:30-7:00pm!

· Thursday, October 6 – Roadrunner Rally
The Roadrunner Rally is one of two major fundraisers we are sponsoring this year. Be on the lookout for more information soon. This has turned into a tradition and the kids have an absolute blast.

Pasta Bowl Fundraiser

Help support the HSE Foundation by donating boxes of pasta to the local Hamilton County food pantries. September 1st-9th CRES Homerooms

· Each class with 30 + boxes of pasta will win a reward recess.

· Collect all the boxes in your homeroom.

· Mrs. Riethman will ask you to bring them to her office on Friday, September 9th..

Reward recess will be held on Monday, September 12th.

IPad Passcode

Thank you for your patience as we continue our 1:1 iPad Journey in our classroom. We are all learning. Rental iPads must not have a pass code to log on. If you own your iPad and you feel the need for a pass code to log on, HSE suggests you use your child's 4-digit or 6-digit birthday. Please know that if your child forgets it and is locked out during the day, he/she will be unable to use the iPad that day so PLEASE be sure your child knows the code. Older kids will quickly learn how to change it so be sure you impress upon them how important it is to not change it. It is a nightmare if you parents are locked out and your child forgets it. It is also wise to be sure it is set so that your password is required for all downloads from iTunes (including the free ones) so that you can supervise them. Also be sure that you have turned on "FIND MY iPAD" in case it is lost.

· For children at least two and a half years of age, but not yet age-eligible for kindergarten, you should contact the Early Childhood Assessment Team at Brooks School Elementary School, 915-4250.

· For students who are eligible for kindergarten through age 21, you should contact your child’s teacher, school counselor or building administrator to discuss your concerns and explore the steps to be taken.

Response-to-Instruction (RtI)

RtI is a general education initiative designed to provide high quality instruction and interventions matched to student needs, and using learning rate over time and level of performance to make important educational decisions. The RtI model is based on a three-tiered model of service delivery with a focus on early intervention and prevention of academic and behavioral concerns. Data collected during this process provides valuable information regarding students’ educational progress and response to interventions. Students who do not demonstrate a response to well-implemented, scientifically-based interventions at the Tier 3 level would be referred for an educational evaluation to determine eligibility for special education. RtI is a component of HSE’s Child Find Process.
