Dear Creswell Elementary School Families,

Welcome to the 2021 - 2022 school year!  I am thrilled to welcome you back to school. It is truly an honor for me to be the Principal of Creswell Elementary School.  I am privileged to work with an outstanding staff to make it a smooth transition for our students during this uncertain times.

We have been working hard all summer to plan for a safe opening of school and to implement best practices to mitigate the risks associated with Covid-19. Our classrooms have been modified to increase social distancing, signage has been installed throughout the building to guide students, and our schedule has been modified to allow for more time for mask breaks, hand washing, and opportunities to access outdoor learning spaces. A stronger emphasis will be placed on social emotional learning in all of our K-5 classrooms.  

 Creswell Elementary School is such a special place to learn and grow. We are proud of our schools dual language 50 /50 immersion program in kindergarten through second grade, our global school initiative and we have high expectations for each and every student.  Our students are kind, compassionate, and inquisitive.  Together with our dedicated staff, we strive to make connections with students to help them feel valued, accepted, and safe. Whether we are learning in person or remotely at home, our goal is to encourage active student engagement to foster a lifetime love for learning.

Partnering with families will be crucial this year as we face many obstacles due to the global pandemic.  We appreciate your support as you work with students at home to practice safety protocols such as wearing a mask and washing hands. We encourage families to stay connected and informed by following our district website for important updates and information regarding the districts direction in navigating the pandemic.

Educationally Yours,

Michael L. Yancey, Ed.D
