Dear Crestwood Families:
We hope you will be joining us tomorrow night, Saturday, May 18, for Crestwood's PTA Art Auction. There are so many creative pieces of art on display in the office that will be auctioned along with many other items donated from the community. It should be lots of fun! This event will will be held from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. in Crestwood's gym. There will be limited dinner tickets sold at the door. If you haven't already purchased tickets you are welcome to come just for the auction at no admission charge.
MAP and MSP testing continues next week. Please continue to be mindful of making sure that your child is at school each day.
Tuesday, May 21, is screening day for next year's incoming kindergarteners. If you registered your child for kindergarten for next year, you will be receiving a reminder call on Monday with your child's screening time.
Tuesday, May 21, is also "PTA Literacy Family Night." The event will be starting at 6:00 p.m. and will be held in the gym. We hope to see a lot of you there.
