Friday night lights at Creswell High School!
Play hard and study hard!
Creswell Volleyball players not only control the court when they play, they study hard when hitting the books as well. Congratulations Lady Bulldogs on your 2nd place ranking in state for the Academic All State. The lady bulldogs had the 5th best GPA in the entire state of Oregon in any classification! Way to go!
Congratulations Lady Bulldogs!
The Great Oregon ShakeOut Drill is good time to be reminded about earthquake readiness and learn the actions you can take to be safe.
Millions of people worldwide will practice how to Drop, Cover, and Hold On at 10:20 a.m. on October 20 during Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drills!
Federal, State, and local emergency management experts and other official preparedness organizations all agree that “Drop, Cover, and Hold On” is the appropriate action to reduce injury and death during earthquakes. Great ShakeOut Earthquake Drills (www.ShakeOut.org) are opportunities to practice how to protect ourselves during earthquakes.
Remember in MOST situations, you will reduce your chance of injury during an earthquake if you:
DROP where you are, onto your hands and knees. This position protects you from being knocked down and also allows you to stay low and crawl to shelter if nearby.
COVER your head and neck with one arm and hand.
• If a sturdy table or desk is nearby, crawl underneath it for shelter
• If no shelter is nearby, crawl next to an interior wall (away from windows)
• Stay on your knees; bend over to protect vital organs
HOLD ON until the shaking stops.
• Under shelter: hold on to it with one hand; be ready to move with your
shelter if it shifts
• No shelter: hold on to your head and neck with both arms and hands.
If there is no table or desk near you, drop to the ground and then if possible move to an inside corner of the room. Be in a crawling position to protect your vital organs and be ready to move if necessary, and cover your head and neck with your hands and arms.
Encouraging Higher Education for Everyone
ASPIRE is a mentoring program that matches trained and supportive adult volunteer mentors with high school students to develop a plan to help them meet their education goals beyond high school.
Today’s students may not have the good fortune to have someone to help them figure out what to do after high school, let alone the myriad of education and training options. If you have a desire to help students explore college options, admissions, and financial aid, ASPIRE is for you. Become one of our trained and supportive adult volunteer mentors and work one-on-one with students throughout the year.
Creswell High School’s ASPIRE program is seeking volunteers for the 2016-17 school year. If you have a desire to help students explore their options after high school, contact Creswell High School today.

It’s homecoming week for our Creswell High School Bulldogs!
After years of saving and fundraising combined with months of planning, 20 students and their chaperones from Creswell Middle School were finally bound for Washington DC, Boston, and New York City
Day one in Washington, DC included observing the Changing of the Guard at The Tomb of the Unknowns, Arlington National Cemetery. (Learn more about the Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns here.) Then CMS students and families paid respects by laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns.

October 5 is National Walk to School Day!
Walking or riding your bicycle to school is a fun and healthy way to start your day.
Walking or riding your bicycle to school is more than a one day event. How often do you walk or ride your bike to school?
Remember to be safe when walking. Check out these tips for walking safely to and from school:
Each spring, Oregon students in grades 3-8 and 11 participate in state assessments in English Language Arts and Math. Rather than multiple-choice questions, today’s tests ask students to explain their reasoning and, often, write out their answers. The new assessments measure more complex skills such as critical-thinking, writing, and problem solving so that schools and parents can assess whether children are on-track to graduate high school ready for college or a career.
The Oregon Department of Education has developed an Annual Notice for Statewide Tests that includes more information about Oregon’s State Tests and how you can stay informed. This annual notice is provided in English and Spanish.
If you have any questions feel free to contact your student’s principal.
