WEEKLY NEWSLETTER
NOTES FROM THE DIRECTOR

2nd Trimester Progress Reports will be coming home with your teen at the end of next  week (Thursday, Feb. 17th).  If you have any questions or need clarification on any progress report, please feel free to email that teacher directly (teacher email addresses are on each progress report).  

 

Each student’s COACH will be reviewing the progress reports with their COACHees during afternoon support starting this week through next week.  This will allow our students to be active participants in understanding their progress in specific classes, gain clarity on areas they need to continue to work on and be a part of the game planning necessary to set and achieve any decided goals.  

 

Have an awesome Super Bowl. Go Bengals! 

Dr. Cap

A Walk to Honor Janet M. Cozine

 

Thank you for participating in The Janet M. Cozine Fund.  We appreciate all of the gifts and messages received from our current families, alumni families, alumni, faculty, and staff.  Although we are well on our way towards raising the $265,000, there are still funds to be raised.

Please consider giving by using the donate button on this page.

 

You can also share our campaign mission with others.

https://www.craigschool.org/giving/janet-m-cozine-auditorium/ on social media, ask your company for a matching gift, or speak to others that may be interested in the Janet M. Cozine Auditorium.

 

Thank you again for your support of The Craig School.

 

 

IMPORTANT INFO

Ordering  Lunch Delivery for March:  The ordering window for ordering March Lunch Delivery will open Monday, February 14th and run through Tuesday, February 22nd.  To register to place orders or to re-order,  go to www.myfooddays.com  

 

Just an FYI that next month (our April food orders), MyFoodDays will be adding a 99¢ per order processing fee.  Previously, this charge was only applied if an order was under $25.  Even with the fee, they are still the best deal in the online food ordering industry for schools.  If you have any questions, reach out to our  Lunch Program Chair and Parent, Amanda Jahn at amandajahn77@gmail.com 

 

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.
