 Earth Day Celebration 2014

The Crestwood Outdoor education Committee is proud to present our 10th Annual Earth Day Celebration on April 25th from 4:30-6:30 at the Bowen Road  Crestwood Elementary School Campus.  Dinner is available for purchase.

There are a wide variety of hands on and informational stations for your child to visit and projects to be completed.  Earth day is totally free for the children and always a family favorite.  Please plan to attend.  A great deal of hard work, time and dedication goes into planning and implementing this event.  We hope everyone can attend.  There will be a very small remaining number of Earth Day shirts available for purchase of $10.00.


Blizzard Bag Update

 For Primary School Blizzard Bag Assignments, Click Here


The Crestwood Local School District currently has to make up four calamity days. The Crestwood Board of Education, last evening, passed a resolution to utilize Blizzard Bags to help offset school days missed this past winter.  Blizzard Bags are an option provided by the Ohio Department of Education for school districts to help make up as many as three instructional days during a school year. With the use of Blizzard Bags, the Crestwood Local Schools will only have to make up one day at the end of this school year.

Blizzard Bags are online or take-home lessons that students complete to make up a missed day of school. Assignments will be available online on our individual schools’ websites or as “take home” hard copy assignments for your child to complete beginning Monday, April 14.  Assignments are due two weeks after they are assigned.  For example, the first assignments will be due two weeks from Monday, April 14 which is Friday, April 25.   The second assignments will be assigned Monday, April 28 and will be due Friday, May 9.  The third assignments will be assigned Monday, May 12 and will be due Friday, May 23. 

If you have questions, please contact your child’s teacher or the Principal of your child’s school. We hope that the use of Blizzard Bags will be beneficial to your child’s education and success.


Since one additional day must be added at the end of the year, the last day of school for Crestwood students will now be June 6, 2014.
