Driven to help @ CES

A new record! Creslane’s annual food drive has come to a close with 4,210 pounds of food being delivered to local families just in time for the holidays.

PSM44_CreswellMustangs“Once again this school and community amazes me. Our canned food drive wrapped up today and we donated 4,210 pounds of canned food (our goal was 775 pounds) to help feed local families! That is amazing.

The race for first place was so close that the fire department decided to have two winning classes participate in the activities at the fire house. Here are the top 5 classes:IMG_2236

1) Mrs. Dean’s 5th Grade: 879 pounds
2) Mrs. Larson’s P.M. Class: 875.5 pounds 3) Mrs. Larson’s A.M. Class: 349 pounds
4) Mrs. Nickelson’s 4th Grade: 178.5 pounds
5) Mrs. Langan’s 1st Grade: 146 pounds

What a battle! I can’t believe the top two classes were separated by a mere 3.5 pounds of food. The fire deportment will be in touch with the winning classrooms to set up the fire truck ride and ice cream sundae party.

Thanks again Creslane community for your support of the food drive.” - Principal Beck

Well Done Mighty Mustangs!

Challenge met: Pucker up!

Congratulations Creslane Elementary! Well done Mighty Mustangs!

pigThis year’s annual November PBIS “Civil War Canned Food Drive” had an extra element of fun added.

If we donate more than 750 pounds of canned food and non-perishable food items for our PBIS event I will kiss a pig. I feel sorry for the pig and it may be animal cruelty but if me kissing a pig helps feed families I am in!” - Principal Beck

IMG_2237 IMG_2236Pound by pound and item by item the donations came into Creslane Elementary. A challenge accepted, a challenge met! 

“I have some bad news for local pigs…

We have far surpassed our goal of 775 pounds of donated canned food items to feed local families so I will be kissing an unlucky member of the swine family after our winter choir concert on Tuesday, December the 2nd.

The choir performance starts at 1:00 on the 2nd and I will pay up my end of the bet after the last song has been sung. There is also a night-time choir performance for families, led as always by Mr. Telfer, at 7:00 on Tuesday the 2nd in our gym.” – Principal Beck
