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.

Crissey Parents’ Club
One of Springfield Local Schools District goals is Community engagement. At Crissey, our goal is to engage parents and community members in the educational process and create an environment where community resources support student success. The Crissey Parents’ Club (CPC) plays an important part in this process.

The purpose of CPC is to first and foremost support our students. In addition, it supports the faculty, staff, parents and the local community. CPC is focused on preparing an enhanced educational environment for students. Throughout the years, the CPC has been a vehicle for our school, families, and local community to accomplish great things for our students.   There is a link on the left-side menu of this page for CPC, too!

Over the past couple of years the parent club has done multiple fundraisers. Within in the last couple of years, CPC has purchased a digital marquee, donated over $10,000 for school technology, purchased two basketball goals and has really helped fund our school PBIS initiatives. This year the CPC has some neat ideas to help support the students and staff at Crissey. One of the biggest fundraisers for the parent club is the cookie dough fundraiser. The fundraiser starts September 19th and ends October 4th.

The ongoing support and involvement of parents and students are essential for the success and effectiveness of the CPC.  CPC can also be seen helping at community events, like the recent Stone Oak 5K Walk and Run (pictured above).  

Be on the lookout for dates for these upcoming events and opportunities. You can stay up to date with all of our exciting upcoming events on the CPC Facebook page (facebook.com/pages/Crissey-Parents-Club/420175171359566) and/or Text @crisseycpc to 81010. Any participation is greatly appreciated! CPC meetings are held the second Monday of each month in the Crissey Elementary School cafeteria. The next meeting is scheduled for September 9th at 6:30 pm.

It is our honor to both thank and introduce the 2019-2020-CPC Executive Board: 
President: Bethany Nowowiejski
Treasurer: Julie Holmes
Secretary: Britt Bensman
Fundraising: Dawn and Denis Poirier

The Sensory Motor Pathway 
Crissey Elementary has an awesome new sensory pathway and the
students love it! The pathway is a colorful and playful way for kids to develop motor skills like balance, spatial awareness and coordination. It assists students that need to increase their energy and stimulation as well as for those students who need to calm and help prepare their bodies to attend quietly to classroom instruction. The sensory motor pathway offers children the necessary movement to help them refocus and obtain an optimal alert state for learning and retention of classroom instruction across all areas of the educational environment.

A special thanks to the Crissey Parents’ Club for their generous donation and to the hard work of Mrs. Delas, Mrs. Riley, Miss Andrews, Mr. Kistner, Mrs. Gerbitz, Ms. Hensen, Mrs. Walker, Mrs. Haskins, Mr. Steve, Ms. Jeanne, and Ms. Laurie. It’s exciting to see what we can do for our students when we all work together!
