“Let’s Build”

Screen Shot 2014-04-19 at 8.53.08 PMIt was one for the record books, a bond measure with a campaign expression of “Let’s Build”. When the bond vote arrived it had it ups and downs, keeping folks on the edge of their seats. Would it pass? It was a narrowest of victories.

cms old and new.pngIn the end, a new two story building emerged behind the old building. A modern building that paid homage to its roots and community.

It has since provided a point of pride to it’s students, the Creswell community and those within the Creswell School District boundaries.

With spades in hand.

On a bright Spring day in early June of 2007 a ceremony was unfolding behind the old Middle School building. With spades in hand a groundbreaking event occurred.

School Board Members, Community Members, City Officials, along with School Staff and other Supporters of Creswell Middle School enjoyed a BBQ before the historic groundbreaking ceremony.

Successful day of Learning and Fun: Earth Day 2014

No amount of potential weather woes could deter the hundreds of students and community members in attendance for the 5th Annual Earth Day Celebration at Creswell’s Garden Lake Park. Despite some passing rain showers overhead, broad smiles and good spirits could still be seen in the students from Creslane Elementary, Creswell Middle School and Creswell High School.

During the celebration students participated in a number of activities such as: scientific exploration of water quality, stream velocity, nature trail rehabilitation, along with environmental awareness through solar power presentations, recycled art creations, and alternative transportation demonstrations. Participants also learned about planting native trees, creative forms of recycling, animals large and small, and the power of human-powered machines all throughout the course of the day.

The Earth Day Celebrations would not be possible without the help of volunteers, business owners, and the generosity of the Creswell Community. Creswell School District is a proud sponsor of the celebration.
