Our Crossfield Community

Can Change Lives Today...

As the COVID crisis unfolded, the PTO Board was touched by the kindness of our families who reached out to offer help to any Crossfield families in need. Thankfully, many supports were already in place for those few families within our school walls in need of significant assistance.

Mr. Granieri made the PTO Board aware there is critical and immediate need in the community of Clearview Elementary...

~Clearview Elementary serves infant through 6th grade students.

~55% of Clearview students participate in Free/Reduced Lunch.

~Many families live in small, unfurnished apartments.

~Several Clearview families have been hit hard by positive cases of the virus.

~Clearview students are in immediate need of groceries and basic items.

~Clearview is located less than 10 miles from Crossfield.

Once again, Let's Give Back, Crossfield, and donate in support of Clearview Elementary students and families. The Crossfield PTO will match donations up to $1,000 with funds from our Acts of Kindness and Field Trip Scholarship funds that were not used this school year, due to the COVID crisis.
