School Save the dates

Posted by Beverly on April 20, 2016

 

Dear Parents,

With the school year coming to an end, the Toddler and Nursery children are busy practicing for their end of year shows. 
The Pre-K children are practicing for graduation and the Kindergarten children are preparing for their moving up ceremony. We look forward to seeing all of you at the end of year shows, our Pre-K Graduation and our Kindergarten moving up ceremony.

Read Across America was a great success. As a school we collectively read over 1000 books. Thank you to all of our special readers. To complete our event we participated in the Scholastic Book Fair. In addition to promoting reading, we raised around $900.00 for the PTA.

This year we had many great events that the Crestwood Parent Association planned.  I would like to personally thank all of the parents especially Gina James and Cherilyn Weiss, who helped plan and organize the wonderful events at Crestwood this year.  I am looking forward to hearing about all of the exciting events there will be next year.

As always, if you have any questions in regard to school this year or next year, please do not hesitate to call me.

With Warmest Regards,

Stephanie Steiner

The Crestwood children participated in a Pennies For Patients fundraiser during the months of March and April. Each class collected money and we donated it to the Leukemia/Lymphoma Society. As a school we raised a total of $1233.20 for this great cause. Our donation was made in memory of Ms. Barbara Joseph, beloved Pre-k teacher at Crestwood for 35 years. Thank you for your help with this worthy cause

 

Spring has finally sprung and the weather is turning warmer. The children will be going outdoors more now for recess, as well as for gym. To ensure your child's safety while playing outdoors, we ask that they wear sneakers or sandals with a back. No flip-flops, Crocs, or backless shoes will be allowed on the playground or in gym class. Please provide sunscreen for your child as they will be out in the hot sun during the day. The students will also be going on the jumping pillow. Please send in an extra pair of socks for this.

Posted by Beverly on March 30, 2016

    

                                 

Be our guest, be our guest, Crestwoods’ show will be the best! 
This summer, Crestwood Drama Program is proud to present “Beauty and the Beast, Jr.” Director Arielle Murdocco and Assistant Director Jared Glazer are returning to direct this classic tale alongside new Performing Arts Music teacher, Alexandra Lambraia. Children entering 2nd grade thru our Senior Rec Program (Grades 6 & 7) who have an interest in drama are welcome to join in this fantastic production. There is a part for everyone, both onstage and off. Since the show will be presented in the final week of camp, all cast members must be enrolled through the end of the summer. Auditions for this production will take place during the first week of our summer program. All campers who audition will receive a role. 

Also back for a second year, is our Mid-Summer show “Crestwood’s Got Talent.” Any camper interested in another performing opportunity should see either Arielle or Jared during their first elective period to sign-up to participate. The show is presented at the end of our first month session and all campers are welcome!

If you have any questions, please e-mail Arielle at CrestwoodDrama@gmail.com or call the camp office. Our Drama Directors will also be available to meet you and your child, as well as answer any questions about the program, at Family Fun & Clothing Day on June 25th.
