Week of September 16th - September 20th
MESSAGE FROM TAD JACKS
I have enjoyed seeing the students back in school and meeting our new students and families. Welcome!
Thirteen of our teachers and staff have moved into new spaces, so similar to your children, they are getting used to new routines. The new teaching spaces and the larger rooms that Mrs. Rosky and Mrs. Miller have moved into are cheery, spacious, and welcoming to all. We are excited for you to see these attractive new homes for learning when our Parent Information Luncheon (September 20), our Back to School Night (October 3) and our Ribbon Cutting (October 7) occur.
Wilson Lobby- Visitor Entrance and Check-in
In my letter to all families in August, I announced that the Wilson Lobby (building closest to the Boulevard and where the Gym and Cafeteria are located) is the place for parents to come and sign in upon arriving at school.
Sharon Anderle will greet you, call for your child to meet you, or direct you to your meetings with Mrs. Cozine and others.
I look forward to seeing you on campus.

Hello Craig Families!
The Parents Association of the Craig School (PACS) is already hard at work with several initiatives to ensure an exciting year. We strive to create a cohesive community in which you can be involved in many ways:
Volunteer – Spend an hour at the Book Fair, act as Class Parent, help with the Waffle Breakfast, or chair our Truck or Treat Halloween event – we hope that everyone can take advantage of at least one opportunity;
Support – Be on the lookout for membership forms that allow you to support our programming through three levels of membership, and CRAIG GEAR order forms. Order your shirts, hoodies and sling bags and let your school spirit shine… GO BADGERS!!!
Participate – Have an idea or a talent to share? Attend our next open meeting on October 8th at 8:30am in the Wilson Lunchroom. Everyone is welcome! We are ALWAYS open to new ideas!!
If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to email me, Susan Gross (PACS President) at firstname.lastname@example.org. Wishing you and your children a wonderful 2019-2020 school year!
