Fun Run opening

Dear Crossfield Community,

Our hearts are full and we are overjoyed and humbled by your support of the Crossfield PTO Fun Run. Special thanks to everyone who attended to volunteer and cheer on our students! Seeing our students, staff, parents and grandparents all together is what makes our Crossfield Community OUT OF THIS WORLD!  It was a day full of excitement, smiles, and lots of laughter. Our kids cheered, danced, ran and celebrated their "PLANET” with school-spirit and popsicles!

This vendor-free event would not be possible without the work of our parent volunteers and our amazing Crossfield Staff. Thank you to all the volunteers who helped over the past few months with t-shirts, marketing materials, sponsorships, website maintenance, and donation tracking. Thank you to all the parents who attended to mark off laps on shirts, hand out popsicles, and take class pictures! We could not do it without you. Mr. Tony "Fitness" Felt and Ms. Holly "Speedy" Sims kept us all laughing and the kids engaged with their all-day emcee roles. Nobody rocks Crossfield socks and sweatbands better! Mrs. Heather “Booky” Baucum, our librarian, produced all our awesome promotion videos, delivered regular updates to all students on the WCES morning news, and documented the event yesterday with videos and photos. Our teachers and staff members all came to cheer, dance and run too!

This event is a great fundraiser, but more importantly, it brings every part of our school together in celebration of our awesome Crossfield Community! 

Congratulations Savannah Venkatesan - Kindergarten PLUTO Team for winning the PTO Fun Run Raffle!  Special thanks to Monumental Sports & Entertainment!  More announcements and prizes coming soon!

Book Character Day

We're excited to invite our students to join in the fun on Book Character Day, which will take place on Tuesday, October 31. This event offers an opportunity for your child to come to school dressed as a character from a favorite book they have read or heard about recently. Additionally, your child is encouraged to bring a copy of the book to school on this special day to share their enthusiasm for reading. Please note that for the safety and comfort of all students, character masks, props resembling weapons, or costumes with materials that could be considered offensive are not allowed.

Thank you for your cooperation and support in making this day an enjoyable and educational experience for all our students.
