School Board Appreciation Month
The Washington State School Directors Association has designated January as School Board Appreciation Month. We would like to recognize and thank our wonderful Crescent School District board members for their tireless devotion, loyal support, and effective leadership. Our directors are: Susan Hopper, Chair; Trisha Haggerty, Vice- Chair; Sandy Criss, Dara Peppard, and Colby Mackley.
Board members preside over monthly meetings typically held on the 4th Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the school library and make decisions on important policy matters regarding instruction, personnel, finance, and facilities. Outside of formal board meetings, these volunteers almost always seem to be on duty and available to listen and assist students, parents, and patrons. Thank you, Crescent School Board Directors, from all of us! We appreciate you!!
Señora Cobb Celebrates Dia de los Niños at NOLS By Ashara Dodson and Caroline Belford
Many Hispanic families are home sick during the holidays because American and Hispanic countries have very different holidays. One of the huge celebrations is Children’s Day or Dia de los Niños. On this day, the schools close and the children are brought around to the businesses who have food an treats for them. To ease this gap between cultural traditions, the North Olympic Library System has found a way to help Hispanic families celebrate Dia de los Niños. Every year on April 30th they hold a bilingual story time for Hispanic Children and their families. For the last three years, Señora Cobb has volunteered to help with stories, songs, food, and the piñata. Señor Cobb says she looks forward to doing it again his year and hopes to have her Spanish students with her.
Flu Season Has Arrived at Crescent
We have had many students with flu symptoms this year. We are taking precautions to prevent the spread of the flu virus at Crescent. We have instructed students on how to cover any cough and/or sneeze using their arm/clothing and to dispose of used tissues promptly and properly. We continue to remind everyone to wash hands with soap and water often and thoroughly. Students and staff have been encouraged to use alcohol-based hand sanitizers.
You can help at home. If your student has flu symptoms, keep your student at home and don’t send the child back to school for at least 24 hours after the fever has gone away. When away from school, children should avoid contact with sick people and avoid touching their eyes, nose, or mouth, and shaking hands with others.

Congratulations and thank you to Lynne Evinger and her talented singers and musicians for an excellent Winter Concert last night. It was well attended and the Jukebox theme was surely a big hit!! Thanks also to her support team including her husband Lee, K-8 teaching team, HS student chair set up team, Mark A. and Linda Mellott and the PTO. It was truly an enjoyable evening and the kind of event to get everyone in a holiday mood!!!
