CRES Send Off to Summer Any child who has rode the bus home from CRES on the last day of school knows the routine. Teachers and support staff line the bus loop, wave to the departing buses, and often blow bubbles. With the realities of this year, that isn't going to happen. The staff at CRES would like to make the best of this situation. CRES students and families are invited to a Send Off to Summer event at CRES on Thursday, May 28th from 3 - 3:30pm. CRES staff will be lining the bus loop. Students are invited to drive through the bus loop with their families. Families are asked to drive their vehicles south on County Road 31 (as if they are driving from Cuyuna into Crosby), so they can make a right hand turn into the bus loop. This will allow other traffic to continue in the second south bound lane. Upon entering the bus loop, we ask families to remain in their car. Feel free to roll down your window, wave, and say a few quick words to your favorite staff members. As you leave the bus loop, please exit the bus loop by taking a right onto County Road 31. Law enforcement will be on hand to help with congestion. During this send off, two special teachers will also be recognized for their many years of dedication to the students at Cuyuna Range Elementary School. May 28th will be Jane Moore and Jody Perrine's last day of school. We would also like to invite former students and former co-workers of Mrs. Moore and Mrs. Perrine to drive through the bus loop to send them congratulations and best wishes. Everyone at CRES is very proud of the efforts of their students and families during these challenging times of distance learning. We hope to see you at the Send Off to Summer!
School Board Meeting will be held via Zoom, today, at 6:00 p.m. If you are interested in joining the meeting, please email Carmen at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will get you the needed information. Thank you!

Attention Camp Invention Campers, Due to the disruptions and challenges of COVID-19, we will not be hosting Camp Invention this summer. You will be receiving an email from Camp Invention Headquarters. This will provide details regarding offering all campers a virtual experience with Camp Invention Connect. If you choose to take part in Camp Invention Connect, they will send you a "boxed" camp to your home with all of the materials. Then your child can access digital resources to go through the camp activities. However, you also have the option to cancel everything and get a complete refund. If you would like to receive a refund, please call 800-968-4332. Please contact Allison Larsen at email@example.com with any additional questions. Thank you!

Crosby-Ironton's Student Action Leadership Team (SALT) would like to challenge our school district to clean up the community! During this time of quarantine, it is important for your health to stay active, so on a nice day, we encourage you to clean up an area of the community that needs your help. Keep in mind, we want everyone to stay safe, so please make sure to follow the rules of social distancing; this is not a gathering nor are we asking you to travel, but it is something you can do individually or as a family. When you clean up an area, I ask that you send a ten second clip to firstname.lastname@example.org , as the clips will be compiled into a video of everyone who participates towards cleaning up the Crosby-Ironton community. Please send in videos by May 26. Please take a moment out of your day to give a little back to your community and planet. This is a great opportunity to get outside and have something to do. Thank you to anyone who participated in our area!
Our 3rd grade teachers, miss their students VERY much! So, they have sent out a special mailer, of themselves, to each of their students.
