Consolidation of our Community Schools

Consolidation of our Community Schools

 

Hello Crawford Families,

 

While we are heartsick that we are losing the unique setting of our Anderson K-2 school and the history that is embodied there, we are very excited to welcome the Anderson students, families and culture into the Crawford Elementary School fold. We are humbled by the trust that is placed in us to begin the educational journey for our youngest community members and take this responsibility to heart. 
 
Please know that we have great respect and admiration for the Anderson staff and for Mrs. Stansell as the leader of such a positive culture. We are excited to welcome the energy and potential of our youngest students and will work diligently with the staff to create a warm, welcoming environment for our young Thunderbirds so that they can continue to SOAR to success. We also trust our Ben Eielson Junior High colleagues to welcome the rising sixth graders and provide a smooth, supportive transition.
 
Your children and your families are our mission, and as the decision has been made to combine schools and transition Ben Eielson Junior High a 6th-8th grade configuration, the schools, now two, will continue to work together, as we have always done.
 
We look forward to supporting our students, families, staff and the community through this transition. 
 
Please let me know your questions so that I can add them to our Frequently Asked Questions document here.
 
Very Respectfully,
 
Teresa Lesage, Principal
