Information for the 2013-14 School Year
From the Principal's Desk...
I want to officially welcome all of you to the 2014-2015 school year! Summer has come and gone and we must now move forward with many exciting changes to follow. We have been very busy throughout our campus this summer with upgrades to our facilities. Everything is progressing smoothly to a great opening of school on Wednesday, August 6, 2014.
I feel privileged to have the opportunity to work with our highly qualified and dedicated staff, wonderful students, and supportive parents. This will be my first year as Principal of Crumpton Elementary, and I am thrilled at the opportunity to get to know all of you and engage in the educational process together.
This school year, our teachers will be focusing on the arrival of the Common Core Standards. They will be attending Professional Development trainings and will be prepared to implement many new strategies to differentiate the instruction for all of our student’s needs. Our teachers have been working hard in preparing their classrooms and lesson plans that promise to make for another exciting and productive year at Crumpton. We give many thanks to our site custodian, Mr. Greene and the District’s entire maintenance crew who have been working diligently to prepare our campus for the start of the new school year. All we await for now, is our fabulous Roadrunner students.
Research shows that parental involvement in a child’s education benefits the child. These benefits are higher levels of academic achievement, positive attitudes, and greater maturity and responsibility. Because the benefits are so solid, I urge you to take part as much as possible in the life of our school. It does take an entire village to raise a child. Your assistance as a volunteer would be extremely valuable to our students. Consider becoming a school volunteer. There are many areas where your help would be appreciated.
I’d like to invite you to soon visit our school’s website. This will serve as a resource tool for all upcoming events, classroom information, important reminders and you can catch up with our monthly newsletter.
Please know that I am available to meet with you in person or talk to you over the telephone to discuss any concerns you may have. As the instructional leader of this campus I am responsible for all decisions made in the best interest of your children. I look forward to a great year and to meeting all our returning and new children and their families.

Important School Information-Attendance
Exposure to Instruction = Academic Success
Absenteeism = Academic Deficiency and Lost School Revenue
Help us help your children succeed. Being on time to school is important. Our students can’t learn to their potential if they have an inconsistent arrival time to school, or if they are absent from our instruction. As parents we want the very best for our children. Building good habits, meeting responsibilities, taking advantage of learning, all play a role in creating success at school.
At Crumpton, about 95% of our students come to school every day. That is one full percent lower than the state average. In the three months to start the school year Crumpton lost over $35,000 in revenue from absenteeism —we get revenue from attendance. It’s called Average Daily Attendance.
Support your children’s learning and support Crumpton--be at school and be on time. Take advantage of our holiday breaks to be with friends and family. Be in school on scheduled school days.

Please take the survey to help us improve our school environment, communication and academic rigor our students experience.
