Crawford Elementary Earns National Recognition
Congratulations to Crawford Elementary!
Crawford has been named a National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education.
U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan recognized 337 schools as National Blue Ribbon Schools for 2014 based on their overall academic excellence or their progress in closing achievement gaps among student subgroups.
“We’re delighted Crawford earned this honor,” said Superintendent Dr. Karen Gaborik. “The administrator and educators at Crawford worked diligently to reach every student and we're proud they’re receiving recognition on a national level."
Crawford Elementary is listed among the Exemplary High Performing Schools of the National Blue Ribbon School recipients.

Dear Caribou Community,
The leaves are falling from the trees and the 1st Quarter is more than half over. It won’t be long until we are getting ready for Halloween and then Thanksgiving!
In the meantime, October is a busy month with lots of happenings going on. The parents of our 4th Grade students are invited to attend “Lunch with Your Child.” All of the Crawford community is invited to Family Math Night, scheduled for October 23. Looking ahead to November, our Veteran’s Day Celebration is scheduled for November 7th, so keep those calendars handy!
Staff Sargent Reab brought “Cool School-Student Style” to Crawford during September. He stressed the importance of winter safety, wearing the proper clothing, and what can happen if they don’t. Our thanks go out to Staff Sargent Reab for helping to keep our students safe. This was especially timely as darker mornings and colder temperatures are moving fast. Please remind your children to dress for the outside weather, as are doors open at 7:45.
Our PTO held its first General Membership Meeting on September 5th. Mrs. Larsen, our librarian, showed us how to use Destiny (our on-line card catalog) and Mrs. Rodriquez, the attendance secretary in the front office, demonstrated the parent portal of PowerSchool. Those who attended found the evening very informative. Stay tuned for more information coming from the PTO and check out the Crawford Caribou PTO FaceBook page.
Please remember to drive slowly and carefully in the loop drive when picking up or dropping off your children. Students know to enter and leave the car on the curb-side, never on the lane side. Keeping our students safe is our number one priority.
