Recess Reminder

This entry was posted in News on by .

The weather is getting colder. Crothersville holds recess as long as the temperature is above freezing. Please make sure your child is dressed appropriately and has a coat so they can go out to recess on colder days. If your child is unable to zip their own coat or put on their hat, gloves and boots on their own, please have them practice with you at home. Thank you so much.

We are introducing a new opportunity for our students and community members needing some extra help with tasks. This job board will be for students in grades 6-12. Businesses or residents who wish to post a job (part time or even just yard work assistance) will need to send a flyer to:

lmyers@crothersville.k12.in.us

Please share this with surrounding communities to help with student employment.

Giving at the Holiday Season

This entry was posted in News on by .

The holidays are a great time to teach children compassion and empathy for others. It is easy for children to be excited to receive gifts, but how do we develop the same enthusiasm for giving? Here are some examples of how you can involve your child in the joy of giving.

  • Let your child shop for a few gifts for others using their own money
  • Do a holiday craft or bake cookies to give to neighbors or friends
  • Let your children wrap a few gifts themselves
  • Have your child make cards for others
  • Give your child the opportunity to present a gift to someone so they can see the joy it brings
  • Volunteer in a local soup kitchen or participate in Toys for Tots

Nationwide Food Shortages

Crothersville is experiencing unavailable items, last-minute replacements and rescheduled deliveries like many across the country. We will do our best to meet the menus but meals served are subject to change. We will keep you informed of any changes that may occur. We appreciate your patience and understanding. We look forward to serving our students free breakfast and lunch this school year.

This entry was posted in News on by .

Have you ever asked your child “How was School Today?” only to get an answer such as “fine”, “good” or “bad”? This could be because of how the question is phrased. It is too easy for students to just give a one word answer. Here are a few examples of ways to ask and actually get an answer!

  1. What was the best/worst thing that happened at school today?
  2. Tell me something that made you laugh today?
  3. If I called your teacher tonight, what would he/she tell me about today?
  4. Tell me one thing you learned today.
  5. Where do you play the most at recess?
  6. Who in your class do you think you could be nicer to?
