HS Week of May 9th

WEEKLY NEWSLETTER
NOTES FROM THE DIRECTOR

This week was “Teacher Appreciation Week” at Craig High and boy, did we feel appreciated!  First, we were greeted upon arrival on Monday by a heartfelt sign made up of a bunch of smaller signs that spelled out “We Love Our Teachers” courtesy of our PACS!  

And that's not all! There was the Wednesday Food Truck where teachers were treated to a delicious grilled lunch.  And if that wasn’t enough, almost daily, candy, cookies, and donuts magically appeared in our teacher’s room.  Thank you to all of our students, parents, and PACS for an amazing week.

Dr. Cap

COMMUNITY NEWS

 

The High School Yearbook 2021 2022 “Among the Stars”: It is hard to believe that we are once again getting ready to wrap up another school year.  This year has been one for the record books and to celebrate the 2021-2022 school year and all that we have accomplished together as a school community, we are proud to present the 2021-2022 Craig School High School Yearbook “Among the Stars”. 

And although our yearbook does celebrate the CSHS Class of 2022, it also celebrates our school community and is truly a yearbook for every student.  Some of the exciting yearbook features include:

 

  • FULL COLOR everything!
  • Special Grade and Group Sections 
  • Sports and other Student Activities Sections
  • Student Artwork
  • Holidays and Spirit Days
  • Candid Craig Section
  • 2021-2022 Headline News Year in Review 

 

This year’s edition of the Craig School High School yearbook promises to be the most sought after edition that we have ever published, and yet we’ve been able to maintain our yearbook price of $30.00!  All you need to do is send in your check, made out to “The Craig School '' to reserve your copy. Yearbooks will be distributed to seniors prior to Commencement.  All other students will receive theirs during the last week of school.

 

CSHS Prom May 14th-Hollywood Nights:  The CSHS Prom is this Saturday, May 14th from 6-9 pm.  Thanks to some generous contributions of time, resources, and glitter from our awesome families, students, and teachers, the cost is only $25 per ticket which makes us the most reasonably priced prom in NJ.  Here is what you will need to know:

  • Tickets: Tickets ($25 per) will go on sale starting Monday.  Cash or check made out to Craig School. 
  • Prom Set Up: We will be staying after school on Friday, May 13th to set up.  Students are welcome to stay to help as long as they have a ride that can pick them up at CSHS at 4:30 PM.  
  • Prom Night: Drop off at 6 PM at our usual Craig Event Center Entrance (also known as the gym entrance!).  There will be a full Buffett and sit-down dinner.  Dress expectations are to look sharp.  Last dance will be at 8:55 PM!
  • Appetizers, Desserts, and Drinks:  We are looking for appetizers, drinks, and desserts to complement our buffet dinner.  Click on this link and let us know what you will be bringing to add to our "cocktail hour" and dessert table (https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0C45A9A822A7FD0-craig1).  They can be brought in the day before or the night of our prom
  • Guests/Plus Ones: Any guest from outside CHS must either show a vaccination card or a recent negative Co-Vid test (within three days of the prom).
  • Chaperones: Our amazing staff has this covered.
  • Clean-Up: Any student that would like to stay until 9:30 PM may help with clean up 

That’s about it.  All Set-Up and Clean-Up time will count towards community service. Any questions email Dr. Cap at ECaparulo@craigschool.org

DEVELOPMENT

A parent shares her experiences!

 

Hello Craig School Parents!

It’s hard to believe that after 10 years as a Craig School parent, my second child to attend Craig will graduate this spring.  My whole family has been so positively impacted by The Craig School. The skills learned here and the friendships formed will remain with all of us for the rest of our lives.   Although next year I won’t be at The Craig School quite as much, I will continue to be involved and support this school that has given my family and me so much.  

As I reflect on this big change, I recognize that the world is constantly evolving.  As new people come into our lives and cherished friends move on to other endeavors, it is incredibly important to keep Craig strong.  The best way that I know to help Craig continue to grow and thrive is by supporting their fundraising efforts.  The Craig School’s biggest fundraiser of the year, the Annual Golf Outing, will occur on Tuesday, June 21st at Ballyowen, New Jersey’s number 1 rated golf course.  You do not have to be a golfer to participate in this fundraising event.  You can attend the dinner and auction which is a wonderful opportunity to meet other Craig families, alumni and friends and help support this school we love so much!

If you’re not able to golf or attend dinner on Tuesday, June 21st, you can still support the school by helping with the silent auction.  You can donate items to the auction through our Amazon Wish List. The Amazon Wish List is similar to a gift/wedding registry – there are an assortment of items of varying price levels available for you to purchase for the 2022 Golf Outing and Silent Auction which will be delivered directly to the Blue House.   Should you decide to purchase an item(s) through the Amazon Wish List, please make sure all items are at the Blue House by May 20th and please list yourself as the donor so you can properly receive credit for your donation(s). 

There are other ways that you can support The Craig School’s biggest fundraiser of the year too.  You can make a monetary contribution - checks can be made payable to The Craig School and dropped off at the Blue House or your son/daughter can give it to their teacher.  You can purchase a tee box, sponsor a teacher or  you can donate an experience for the auction (tickets to a sporting event, vacation home, hotel package, etc.) Finally, you can volunteer to help put together the donations once all the items have been received at Craig.  There are so many ways to help make this year’s Golf Outing and Silent Auction the best fundraiser yet!  

Thank you so much for your support of The Craig School.  Any donation of items, cash, or time that you’re able to provide for this event would be wonderful!   We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, June 21st  to celebrate Craig!                             

Amanda Jahn, Craig High School Parent

JANET M. COZINE AUDITORIUM

Thank you for all of your support for the Janet M. Cozine Auditorium renovation. We are grateful to everyone who has contributed to this project, and for those who have gotten involved and shared their experiences at The Craig School.

 

Our campaign continues and as of today we have raised $165,000 with gifts from every constituency of the school: students, parents, faculty, staff, former faculty, alumni, alumni parents, and grandparents. A testament to Janet's 42 year career and the impact made on the lives of so many families that are a part of Badger Nation.

 

Our goal is to raise $265,000 for the completion of the project.  If you have not given to the campaign, please consider a gift today to celebrate our esteemed Director of the Lower and Middle School, Janet M. Cozine.

 

 

You can pledge here:

Donate to the Janet M. Cozine Auditorium,

pay via Text2Fund by texting Badgers to 71760,

pay via Paypal at https://www.craigschool.org/giving/

WALK FOR JANET M. COZINE

The Craig School will be hosting a walk on Saturday, May 21, 2022 to honor Janet M. Cozine’s 42-year career at The Craig School with this school-wide celebration!

 

Activities will kick off at 10:00 am with music and greetings followed by a stroll down the Boulevard with Janet as well as our students, faculty, parents, alumni, alumni parents, and friends.  After the event, we will meet back on campus for more festivities and refreshments, which includes the Kona Ice Truck!  All participants will be eligible for prizes that day.  

 

We would love to see you and your families joining us on this special day to celebrate the one and only Janet  M. Cozine.

IMPORTANT INFO

 

Craig School Emergency Contact System:  The Craig School uses a multi-tiered communication system that provides to our families, the highest level of certainty that you are made aware of any change in the opening or closing status of Craig Lower Middle School and Craig High.  Our various communication tiers include:  

  • Craig Notification Call System:  The Craig Notification call is a voice activated system so you need to say HELLO once and allow the system to activate.  If you say HELLO followed by another HELLO in rapid succession, the system will not activate and not start the recorded message.  If you are unable to take the call, it will leave a message. 
  • School Email Blast:  We will send out an email blast to all of our families and students.  Keep in mind that emails are dependent on the internet so if that’s down, so are emails.
  • Text  Dr. Cap:  As a last resort to check school status, you can always text Dr. Cap at (973)534-9054.
