Crestview Elementary School – A Rich Tradition of Excellence
Welcome to the 2011-2012 school year! Crestview Elementary School has a rich tradition of excellence in education, and the teachers, staff and I will do our best to continue to serve the children of our district through high quality instruction with best practice methods.
Once again, Crestview Elementary School received an EXCELLENT on the Local Report Card for our building. Our performance index score was well over the 100% mark, and we met AYP (adequate yearly progress) and value-added measures. Congratulations to all of our students as well as the teaching staff and paraprofessionals who worked hard to continue our tradition of excellence!
This year, we welcome several new teachers to our Crestview Elementary family. Jared Owens, a graduate of Crestview High School and Bluffton University, returns to teach 5th and 6th grade science. As well, Mr. Owens will serve as head coach of Crestview’s football program. Previously, Mr. Owens taught and coached for South Adams School System in Berne, Indiana. Natasha (DuVall) Breese, a graduate of Lincolnview High School and The Ohio State University, will teach 4th grade language arts and social studies. Mrs. Breese previously taught in Columbus City Schools and in Dublin City Schools. Mrs. Breese will also serve as head coach of Crestview’s cheerleading program. The last new teacher is Craig Taylor. Mr. Taylor is a graduate of Crestview High School and Findlay University, and he will teach 5th grade math. Mr. Taylor is also a part of the middle school football coaching staff. We are excited to have each of these young educators as a part of our Crestview family. Each one offers enthusiasm, new ideas, strong work ethics, and a desire to help students succeed in the classroom.
All students and parents are invited to attend the CPC-sponsored Open House on Tuesday, August 30 from
3:30 – 5:30 p.m. Please come and meet teachers, bring in school supplies, pay school fees, and enjoy a cookie provided by our CPC (Crestview Parents’ Club). The first day of school for students is Wednesday, September 7.
