As a special “welcome back” treat, the PTO provided a breakfast on the first week that the teachers came back and surprised staff members with little gifts throughout the week when students were back.
The Crestridge PTO showed its support for the start of the school year by providing “Welcome to the Crestridge Family” signs for staff members to deliver to families with kindergarteners. We also provided the large “Welcome Back Vikings” sign in front of the building. We are looking forward to another wonderful school year. Go Vikings!
Thanks to the generous donations of parents to the PTO, and with the help of St. Luke’s Methodist Church and private donors, staff members were able to enjoy a week of fun themes, treats, and gifts!

In every way, this school year looks and feels different for us all. What hasn’t changed is the love and commitment the teachers and staff at Crestridge give to our scholars and families.
For the start of school, PTO organized a variety of activations that showed teachers and staff that we appreciate them.

Each pinwheel representing a Crestridge student, a pinwheel garden greeted teachers and staff upon their arrival to school on August 23, the second week of 100% remote instruction.
