It appears we are on the cusp of spring which means we are in the fourth and final grading period of the school year. Track, baseball, and softball seasons have begun as we look forward to consistently warmer temperatures. We were very fortunate to have a very mild winter. If the weather continues to cooperate, our last day for students should be on May 17. Graduation for our seniors will be on Sunday, May 14, 2017 at 2:30. It is hard to believe we are already planning for end of the year events.
Like the previous two grading periods, the third nine weeks was a busy one at Crooksville Schools. This newsletter will highlight many of the activities which took place during the third quarter. Our elementary students have continued to showcase their emotional and social growth and several have been honored through our “Step Up to Blue” program. Middle school students participated in a debate tournament, have enjoyed athletic success, and are planning our eighth grade trip to Washington D.C. Also, three of our high school students, Lindsay Baughman, Austin Burgess and Morgan Mulligan, and one of our high school teachers, Mr. LaBatte, were recently honored at the annual Muskingum Valley Educational Service Center Awards Banquet. Additionally, our students have enjoyed developing products with the district’s 3D printer. Finally, the newsletter contains information about a new charity event taking place on our school track, the Memorial Mile.
Crooksville Exempted Village Schools continues to offer many excellent learning opportunities for our students. I encourage you to attend one of the many events we have going on at the schools before the end of the school year.

Matt Sheridan, Superintendent
