Crothers Elementary School

Dear Crothers Families,

Well, it is that time of year when once again we celebrate family and friends as well as reflect on how the year has gone. 2016 has certainly had its joys, successes and challenges, both personally and here at Crothers.

However, it is most exciting to think about all that has been accomplished this year thus far. Our students are using their leadership skills in many areas throughout the school by helping other students in class and on the playground, responsibly holding school and classroom jobs, supporting each other as they learn to manage feelings appropriately and work through conflicts. Students are using the calming strategies they have been taught and are using their words to solve problems.

Crothers students are also making wonderful gains academically. Student growth percentages on the M-Step have surpassed the district, county, and state percentages. NWEA & Dibels scores are better than they have been and students continue to increase their reading levels and show growth in math as well. All students grades 2-5 are being challenged by engaging in experiences with robotics. Students in grades K-1 are developing their ability to “think outside the box” for solutions to problems and are being exposed to engineering concepts which will prepare them for robotics in the years to come. Many students are currently strengthening their writing skills by participating in the Brainstormer’s Writing Camp and having loads of fun in the process. Crothers is certainly a busy and exciting place to be!

Of course, I remember the many challenges ahead of us and want you to know that we will model for our students what we are teaching them this month; to “persevere” in our efforts to improve and make Crothers even better. I wish you and your family well during this holiday season.

Happy Holidays, Janis Byrn
