At last…Teacher Feature is back!  So many of our students have never experienced the fun of having an adventure with a beloved teacher(s). We are blessed that our hard-working faculty, who help your children all week, are willing to donate their time to provide wonderful experiences for students outside of the classroom.   

Here is how Teacher Feature works. Please read the activities offered first. Then fill out the Teacher Order Form (last page of the attachment) stating which activity or activities your child wants to participate in. Pay for your choices by sending in a check for the total amount made out to The Craig School.      

Teacher Feature operates on a first-come, first-serve basis as space is limited for many outings. If we have too many buyers for the space available, we will reach out to you to see if your child would like a different outing and if not, your check will be returned.    

The fun begins with our first feature on April 14th, so don’t delay. Remember, this is a FUNdraiser for the school.    

Please have your responses in by Friday, April 14th.      

Any questions, please contact Amanda Jahn at or Mary Calvano at Thank you for your support. Spring Fling Planning Committee
