Flyers and other important information.
To all Crittenden students, staff, families, and friends,
We’d like to wish everyone a cheerful holiday season and a very happy new year. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for everything you do to make our community strong. All of us are interconnected, and therefore essential to our continuing pursuit: to inspire and empower every student to pursue academic and personal excellence. Education is a journey, and you all are amazing companions.
We also want to wish our outgoing superintendent, Craig Goldman, all the best as he embarks on new endeavors. Craig, thank you for all of your years of service and leadership.
Looking forward to a fantastic, growth-filled 2015!
Geoff and Arline

Panther Prowl Planning
The Crittenden walkathon, the “Panther Prowl” is the schools main fundraiser, and money raised allows the PTA to pay for educational field trips, classroom supplies, staff appreciation, enrichment, athletics and library materials. This year’s Prowl will take place on the afternoon of March 6, 2015.
Last year we raised over $15,000 which enabled students to go on more educational field trips than in previous years. This year our goal is to raise $20,000 which will enable our kids to enjoy even more outside educational experiences.
Please join us for a planning meeting on Friday, January 9 from 1 to 3 PM at Crittenden to learn how you can help with this year's walkathon. We need your help to make the walkathon a success. For questions and/or to RSVP please email Elana Feinsmith at email@example.com or Fiona Brydon at firstname.lastname@example.org.
