High School Program Spotlight

 Students Create Cool APPS during Annual “Week of Code” The High School held its annual Week of Coding a few weeks back.  After some brief training and exploration, a group demo and some modeling, students were tasked with applying their new coding skills to develop their own mini-programs and Apps.  We are proud to share some of the amazing and creative work of our students:

Clinician’s Corner

In Mrs. Brown’s Social Dynamics class the focus has been on Empathy.  The ability to understand the feeling of others.  Such an important life skills for any situation- to be able to be an active listener, use appropriate body language and really try and understand what someone is feeling or experiencing.  As the freshman are learning- empathy is a choice, and a skill you can always work on.  It is important to maintain healthy and positive relationships with our family, friends, teachers, future coworkers etc.

High School Reminder

​The Craig School Continues Collecting “Box Tops for Education”

The Craig School has been collecting Box Tops for Education since 2014 and as a school community, we have received almost $5000!  All from just cutting out those little “pink and blue squares” that say BOX TOP FOR EDUCATION on so many of the products we use on a regular basis (The following is a link to all of the products that carry the BOX TOP FOR EDUCATION logo:CLICK HERE)

Last school year, we raised almost $500 so that is where we set the bar for this school year.  Each box top brings in 10 cents so they do add up quickly.  The only way we are going to pull this off and achieve our school community goal is if all of our families get involved.  Cutting them out and sending them into the  office works.  You also have the option of downloading the BOX TOPS FOR EDUCATION APP (CLICK HERE) and then scan your shopping receipts.  The app will pick up on any box top items and turn that into cash for Craig! Our deadline for our next payout is March 1st so that gives us 6 weeks to bring in some box top bucks for Craig!
