It is hard to believe Spring has arrived and 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 had a mixed bag of winter weather this year, but it is my hope that it is finally warming up. If the weather continues to cooperate, our last day for students should be on May 22nd. Graduation for our seniors will be on May 19th at 2:00 PM. It is hard to believe we are already planning for end of the year events.
We were extremely busy at Crooksville Schools during the third nine weeks. This newsletter will highlight many of the activities that took place during the third quarter. Middle school students just finished up winter sports and are planning their eighth grade trip to Washington D.C. Also, two of our high school students, Katelyn Baughman and Alanah Williams, and one of our high school teachers, Mr. Williams, were recently honored at the annual MVESC awards banquet. Additionally, our maker space students have enjoyed developing games for the district.
We are also pleased to announce that Crooksville Schools is partnering with Energy Optimizers to upgrade our interior and exterior lighting as well as our HVAC systems at our schools. We are hopeful that most, if not all, of these upgrades will be completed before the 2019-2020 school year begins. The savings recouped by becoming more efficient will help offset the cost of these needed upgrades. These repairs and upgrades will continue to ensure our buildings are in excellent shape for our current and future students.
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.
