Dear CRES families,

Thank you for being part of our school community at Colvin Run Elementary School. On Thanksgiving, we are asked to think about everything we have for which we are thankful. While we are thankful for our families and everything we have, we are also thankful to be working with such wonderful students, staff, and parents. CRES is a special blend of dedicated professionals, caring and supportive parents, and students who care about each other and the importance of learning. Not everyone gets the privilege to experience this, so we are thankful for you and for allowing us to be a part of your children's lives.

Whether you are near or far, on behalf of our CRES staff, we hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving break filled with lots of love and quality family time.

Take care,

Mr. Junge and Mr. Soderstrom

Veterans Day Reminder and Early Dismissal, Nov. 11

GovDelivery3 weeks 3 days ago

Dear CRES families,

This is a reminder regarding deadlines as we prepare Hall of Fame posters to honor family veterans/active military, welcome special guests at CRES and plan for the 2-hour Early Dismissal on Thursday, November 11.

2-Hour Early Dismissal- Thursday, Nov. 11

CRES will celebrate Veterans Day in the morning due to FCPS’ 2-hour Early Dismissal from school Thursday, November 11. CRES dismisses students at 2:05 p.m. Buses will arrive at bus stops 2-hours earlier than their regularly scheduled times. Students will have lunch at their regularly scheduled time.

Veterans Day Celebration- Thursday, Nov. 11

Thursday, November 11th, we will have our Veterans Day celebration to honor our CRES community veterans and active military.  This could be a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, sibling, or cousin of students in our CRES community. This year’s celebration will be different than in the past.

Veterans’ Hall of Fame Posters Due Date: Oct. 29-Nov. 10

We understand that our Veterans/Active Military may be unavailable to visit a classroom in-person or virtually, and we would still like to honor/remember them in our Veterans’ Hall of Fame.  As part of our Veterans Day celebration, we will also highlight our United States veterans and active military in our Veterans’ Hall of Fame located in the Main Lobby. Click here or .pdf version to access an information sheet to be completed and brought in with a picture of the veteran. Students need to only bring in the picture and information sheet. They will glue them on a school-supplied ‘ready-made’ poster and hang the poster in the Main Lobby.  We will accept the information sheet and picture Oct. 29-Nov. 10. We will start hanging posters in the lobby Nov. 1. Students may pick up their ready-made poster in the Main Office between Friday, October 29-Wednesday November 10. All Hall of Fame posters must be submitted by Wednesday, November 10.

RSVP To Meet with Students Due Date: Friday, Nov. 5

All veterans/active military who would like to talk with students must RSVP here by Friday, November 5.  To encourage the continued health of our students, staff and honored guests, we have several options by which veterans may participate in our celebration.

  1. Veterans/Active Military come into school. We would be honored to have that veteran/active military in-person to meet with an individual class. 
  2. Veterans/Active Military virtually meet with class. We would be honored to have that veteran/active military meet virtually with an individual class.
  3. We ask Veterans/Active Military to record a brief 5 minutes video using this link. Teachers will share your videos with our students. We encourage all Veterans/Active Military to complete a video using this link as we will have classes who will not have an honored guest. This gives all classes the opportunity to learn from you through recorded video.    

Schedule of Veterans Day Celebration Events- Thursday, Nov. 11

Teachers will coordinate with honored guests regarding a time they can come in and speak with a classroom, either in-person or virtually. We look forward to having our traditional Veterans Day celebration in 2022. Students will tour the Veterans’ Hall of Fame the week of Nov. 11-19.

 

Take care,

Mr. Junge and Mr. Soderstrom

Walk to School on October 6th

CRES will participate in International Walk to School Day on Wednesday, October 6th, in an effort to promote physical activity and reduce traffic congestion and pollution near schools. Students are encouraged to walk to school tomorrow.  All students can participate by walking to school, to their bus stop, to the end of their street or the end of their driveway.

We will be giving out sneaker charms to students who participate in the event.  On October 6th, please encourage your child to stop by the table in the front lobby to get a sneaker charm if they participated. 

Parents, please take a picture of your child or neighborhood group and send it to crespd@gmail.com by noon, October 6th. We will be selecting photos of our participants to include on the Colvin Run website and in our October 13th "On The Run" newsletter.
