Welcome Back to Crothers!
We are excited to start a new year and see all of our happy returning new faces and to welcome some new ones! We also have some new and exciting things for this year to tell you. The first is our school theme of “Lead From Where you Stand.” We will be using this theme to teach all students to be a positive leader wherever they are. This is done through a consistent focus on skills that all leaders have such as integrity, responsibility, initiative problem solving skills and many more. You will be hearing much more about this focus as the year progresses.
Crothers also has the privilege of welcoming some new staff members as well. We are so excited to have a new teacher, Mr. Branko Hamilton, with us this year as well as Mrs. Erin Roddis who is our new full-time counselor. Mr. Flanigan will be our technology teacher this year. These changes are exciting for all of us.
The last new addition is a program called Playworks which will be on site to work with our students in teaching them cooperative play, games, and good sportsmanship during our recess time. They will be working with each classroom to guide them through learning these important skills while having a lot of fun in the process.
Below, you will find some important information that you need to know:

On a more personal note, even after many years of being in education, I still get excited at the beginning of a new school year. There is much excitement that is evident in students and staff as we anticipate another year of fun and learning. Please know that I feel so grateful that you have chosen Crothers as the place where you believe to be the best place for your child to learn and we will treasure your child as we would want our own children to be treasured!
