Looking Forward to the New School Year

August 15, 2018

Hello Crawford-Rodriguez Families,

The beginning of the new school year is fast approaching!  The custodial staff and maintenance staff are diligently working to prepare the building for the upcoming school year.  The first day of school is Thursday, September 6.

Pre-School and Kindergarten Orientation and New Student Tours

Pre-School and Kindergarten Orientation is scheduled for Thursday, August 30 from 10:00-11:00am.

Tours are available for any new students in grades 1-5 transferring to the Crawford-Rodriguez Elementary School on the following days and times.  Please contact the Main Office at 732-833-4690 Ext. 6520 or Ext. 6522 to sign-up for a tour:

  • August 21 - 10:00am
  • August 22 - 10:00am
  • August 27 - 1:00pm
  • August 28 - 1:00pm

Summer Reading

Remember, students in grades 1-5 should be completing their summer reading.  During the summer, you and your child can access books at the public library, at a local bookstore, or eBooks can be used.  

Our goal is to make reading fun, enjoyable and something that families can do together.  Please try to set aside family time for reading and/or read the book with your child.  Continued engagement with reading during the summer months supports the growth your child has made this past school year with their reading independence.  

Student Transfers

If your child will be transferring to a new school beginning in September, please come into school to complete the necessary transfer out information in the Main Office.  Summer hours are Monday-Thursday 8:00am-3:00pm.

Caregiver Forms

If you are continuing with your Caregiver for the 2018-2019 school year, a new form has to be completed as soon as possible in order to be in effect at the beginning of the school year. Remember to have the Caregiver sign the form along with your signature and return to Crawford-Rodriguez Elementary School.
