We had a great day and beautiful weather for our Fall Fun Day! An extra special thank you to our fabulous PE teachers Kate Clary and Mary Joyce who put in so much effort to make today a huge success, our 5th graders and parent volunteers who kept the games going, and all the parents who came to join in the fun!
Mrs. Rossi's class has been busy cooking in the solar ovens this week and the class enthusiastically presented me with some of their creations. They explained that they followed recipes and also used their own imaginations to make the recipes even better. I have yet to try the delicious treats but I will....soon.Hollene DavisPrincipal
Ashley won "Principal for a Day" in a raffle during the Spring Fling and did an excellent job today. She put 6 tickets in at $1 each and won! Together, we conducted an Open House for new Crest View families, answered calls on the radio, did errands for staff, had lunch with friends, chewed gum and even wrote a few conduct reports for misbehaved teachers. Ashley decided it is a busy job so she went to recess towards the end of the day. We had so much fun!Hollene DavisPrincipal
These clever students fooled me today with their twinkling eyes and devilish smiles. They offered me a brownie on a plate with aluminum foil. As I unwrapped it, giggles erupted when I found the letters of the word brownie on the plate. These moments bring so much joy!Hollene DavisPrincipal
While doing bus duty in the afternoon, a storm was brewing and precipitation started falling. Two girls were putting their hand out the window to feel it and one of the girls yelled out the window, "it's raining!" The other little girl said "no....it's drizzling!" Our teachers have been focused on teaching vocabulary particularly tier II and tier III words. Clearly, this little girl is working diligently to use the words she has learned at school and at home.

Mrs. Weaver's second grade students have a unique way of tracking their fluency in reading. They record each other while reading so they have a digital portfolio to share with their parents at conferences. The video experience allows the students and Mrs Weaver to self-evaluate their own reading and determine how they can improve.Hollene DavisPrincipal
You could feel the excitement from the students before the 1st bell rang in the morning. Their 100 day projects; so cleverly done, were displayed in the halls. When I walked in the kindergarten rooms, students were counting all kinds of objects and solidifying the Base Ten concept they had been working on all year. It is so amazing to watch kids engaged in learning with such joy!Hollene DavisPrincipal
I am positive I have the best job in the world. Completing my grocery shopping on a Sunday afternoon, I was patiently (questionable) waiting in line to cash out when I heard "Ms. Davis!" and felt an embrace full of joy. As I looked down to see who was embracing me, her face was full of smiles. It is moments like these, when I least expect them, that make me feel like I have the best job in the world!

It was 27 degrees on the morning of January 27th and 54 children still rode their bikes to school to celebrate Winter Bike to School Day! Many children walked as well and enjoyed hot cocoa, Clif Bars and received free stickers & water bottles from Boulder Cycle Sport. This is a small way to show our appreciation to their dedication to cycling and walking to school. Way to go!
