Crissey Elementary School faculty, staff, and students demonstrate daily that the district’s mission to provide “exceptional education for today’s learners and tomorrow’s leaders,” is more than a collection of words on a page. It is a philosophy used to meet the challenge of giving each student every opportunity to succeed in life with a  strong educational foundation.  

We believe that the basic building block of education

begins at the elementary school level, and hand-in-hand with parents and extended family members, business and professional leaders, and elected officials involved to provide both a nurturing and challenging environment that allows each student to perform at his/her highest level or achievement.

100th Day of 2016-17 School Year
Many primary grade schools throughout the country celebrate the 100th day of the school year. The celebration is designed to be a teachable moment that engages students in activities that are both fun and memorable.  

The 100th day of school is never an ordinary day at Crissey Elementary School!  It is quite amazing to see how many different ways our staff finds to incorporate the number 100 into learning and fun! 

One of the most memorable events each year is the second grade 100th Day “Dress Older” day!   In Mrs. Hunter’s second grade class, students dressed like they were 100 years old.  Activities such as these could be seen throughout the school, as the teachers incorporated fun ways to reinforce mathematics using the number 100.  The students enjoyed having a break from the normal routines as they practice math or writing using games and activities, based on the number 100.

Crissey Blood Drive
According to the American Red Cross:
Did you know?

· The American Red Cross blood program started in 1940, under the leadership of Dr. Charles Drew.
· The Red Cross supplies about 40 percent of the nation's blood supply.
· The Red Cross provides blood for patients in approximately 2,600 hospitals across the U.S.
· Eighty percent of the blood donations given to the Red Cross are collected at mobile blood drives set up at community organizations, companies, high schools, colleges, places of worship or military installations. The remaining 20 percent are collected at Red Cross donation centers.
· The number one reason donors say they give blood is because they "want to help others."
· Half of Red Cross donors are male, and half are female.

Only seven percent of people in the U.S. have "Type O-negative" blood. Type O-negative donors are universal red cell donors as their blood can be given to people of all blood types.
Only three percent of people in the U.S. have AB positive blood type. AB positive type blood donors are universal donors of plasma, which is often used in emergencies, for newborns and for patients requiring massive transfusions.

Please consider donating blood at the Crissey Elementary Blood Drive on Tuesday, March 21, 2017, from           3-8pm. To schedule an appointment, please visit redcrossblood.org and enter sponsor code: CRISSEYELEM.
