Dear Parents, Faculty and Students

The PTN executive board would like to thank you for all your support during the past year.  We hope you had as much fun at all the activities as we did. We are already planning for some different events for next year. If you have any suggestions or would like to find out more about how you can volunteer, please let us know. We have volunteer positions that are as little as a few hours a month such a Lunchroom library or “swag Bags” for the gift auction or boosters for the yearbook. We also have more involved positions such as book fair, holiday shop. We had a great time at the dance and the movie night and we are planning for those again next year. Speaking of movie night, we would like to congratulate Ethan Lamberto in Ms. Kalash’s class on winning the Lego movie.

We hope you have a great summer & look forward to seeing you next year!!

Crawford Rodriguez Sidewalk Chalk!


Written By: Allison Rosofsky and Kayla Wierbicki

Here at Crawford we are Bucket Fillers. Thanks to Ms. Herold, our school guidance counselor who is committed to promoting good behavior. Each time a student/staff member does something nice to another they get to write about it in a tiny newspaper article. Each week articles are chosen to be read during our school’s morning announcements.  Students/staff who have been recognized will come up to the main office and receive a token for their kindness. Ms. Herold appreciates all the students and staff for their efforts in participating in this initiative.
