The Crenshaw School held a Winter Festival for students in grades K-12 January 28, 2022, sponsored by Student Council. Teachers were pied in the face and we brought in a huge bubble machine that the elementary students loved. Most students got airbrushed tattoos and jumped in the bounce house.

In addition to the games, we gave away multiple homework and lunch passes, a $25 gift card to Target, a Google Home device, and a $25 gift card to Amazon.

Seniors won a pizza party at the Faculty vs. Seniors obstacle course race, 4-0. The DJ had students playing musical chairs and dancing the cha cha slide.

How to Help Your Student Think Critically

Wednesday, 05 January 2022 19:03

Oxford Languages defines Critical Thinking as the objective analysis and evaluation of an issue in order to form a judgement. Throughout our lives, we are influenced about how to think by the thoughts and opinions of others. 

Somewhere along the way, in order to be successful, children must learn how to think for themselves. Parents can only hope that our students and children will develop a critical thinking pattern that will better the world and future generations to come. 

Spirit Week 2021

This week has been Spirit Week! Check out our students' outfits for the week, including "Heritage Day," "The Roaring 20's," and "Culture Day."

When your eyes first meet those of your newborn, it is hard to imagine them ever growing up. It seems like they will be that tiny forever. 

As they grow, we celebrate as they accomplish milestones such as rolling over, crawling, walking, and talking. We even try to hurry them along, coaxing them to take their first steps and speak their first words. 

As they reach their toddler years, we may want to rush them through the “terrible twos” and “threenager” phases. However, as they begin preschool and kindergarten, we start wishing they could stay little forever. 

Although we might want to prolong their elementary school years as long as possible, our little ones are getting older, whether we like it or not. Parents must take steps to make sure their children are as prepared as possible for the transition to sixth grade. The middle school years are some of the most challenging and rewarding for parents and students.
