From the Principal’s Desk...

The school year is off to an incredible start.  BUSY, but AMAZING!  We want to welcome everyone to Crestdale.  We are currently looking at 100+ new faces and I am excited to get to know each of you.  We would like to make sure everyone has necessary information to have a great year.  We are working on ways to communicate with all families; text, email, and phone.  Make sure you update your information with the front office if it changes.   

Make sure you take the time to LIKE us on FaceBook at Crestdale Elementary School.

Please let me know how I can help make this year your child’s best yet! 

Mrs. Hobbs

Research has shown that starting the day with a nutritious breakfast helps students stay alert and perform better in school.   This is a reminder that reimbursable breakfasts are available at Crestdale everyday throughout the school year.  For your convenience, the breakfast menu is sent home each month with the lunch menu.
