Teacher Feature

One of the most successful parts of the Auction is our annual Teacher Feature and you should have already received information about how to sign up!  Teacher Feature is when our amazingly dedicated, creative and talented faculty offer fun and engaging activities for the students outside of the academic day.  You are able to register your son or daughter to participate in any number of fun offerings with their favorite teachers.  The teachers are always so creative and the students love hanging out with their teachers in a non-school setting.  Please check out the Teacher Feature offerings and get your responses in by Friday, March 15th!

ANNUAL FUND

Have you given to The Craig School Annual Fund? We need to reach 100% participation. Your gift supports the people and the programs that make Craig so special!  This means talented teachers, small glasses, reading specialist, up-to-date technology!  These gifts are necessary because tuition doesn’t cover all the opportunities your student receives at Craig.  We are asking you to give and invest in your child’s school.
