Parent Resources

    You can monitor your child’s progress through PowerSchool at or at . Contact your child’s teacher for more information regarding grades. Or check out the parents "How to Guide" for Powerschool.
  • Georgia Parental Information and Resource Center
    This site provides information and resources that we hope you will find useful in your role as the primary educator of your children. There is valuable information here about the federal No Child Left Behind legislation and what it specifically means to your child or children, the schools they are attending, and the local school districting students.
  • Preparing for End of Year Tests
    A. Encourage your child in a positive manner to do his/her very best on each and every phase of the test

    B. Talk with your child about his/her concerns of taking the test. By reassuring them that it is only one way that will help the school measure the students' academic ability, we hope to relieve some of the pressure that they may be feeling about taking the test.

    C. You can help your child do his/her best by ensuring that they get a good night's sleep, have a nutritious breakfast, arrive at school on time, and have a positive/happy attitude each day of the testing. Be sure your child is at school on time. Rushing and worrying about being late could affect performance on the test.

    D. Remember to ask your child about the testing at the end of each day.

    As part of its assurances within NCLB program grant applications and pursuant to Section 9306 of the No Child Left Behind Act, an LEA accepting federal funds also agrees to adopt local written procedures for the receipt and resolution of complaints alleging violations of law in the administration of covered programs.

Parents Take Note:

CRES Students and the Four Signs of Respect

Have you heard of the Four Signs of Respect? Do you know what they are? At Crooked River, we expect our students to monitor their own behavior by following the four signs of respect throughout the instructional day. The four signs are listed below for your information and review. We encourage you to use the four signs at home with your child/children to help them remember what they are learning in school. Thank you for your support and assistance with our school-wide discipline plan.

  1. Eyes on Speaker (Look at person speaking.)
  2. Ears Open (Listen to person speaking.)
  3. Mouth Closed (There is no talking.)
  4. Body in Control (keep hands, feet, and body still.)
Note: We hold up four fingers to signal our expectation-four signs of respect. Also, this is way to let children know we want their attention.

New App for Military Parents

Military Family

ZERO TO THREE has developed a great new resource, an app called Babies on the Homefront. This free app for smartphones, available in both English and Spanish on iTunes and the Google Play store, is designed especially for military and veteran families as they navigate the many transitions that are part of serving, including deployment and reintegration, moving and returning to civilian life. The app makes it easy to select from behavior tips and activities for parents and children, with a special section for parental self-care. This product was made available through a generous grant from the Robert R. McCormick Foundation.

Babies on the Homefront provides military and veteran parents ideas for enhancing everyday moments with their baby or toddler. Parents will find lots of material to add to their toolbox of strategies, including:

· Behavior Tips—Ideas for handling those tougher parenting moments like tantrums, or those unique challenges like missing a deployed parent

· PT (Play Time)—ideas for creating activities

· At Ease—information and ideas on self-care

Parents can personalize the app with their baby’s picture and create a photo gallery of their child’s moods in Feeling Photos. To make it even easier, parents can sort the information by their young child’s age and specify their situation as; at Home, leaving soon, deployed, home again, a veteran, or visiting a hospital. The app also allows quick access to a series of podcasts on parenting for military and veteran families. Babies on the Homefront was developed by ZERO TO THREE: The National Center for Infants, Toddlers, and Families through a generous grant from the Robert R. McCormick Foundation.

Parent Involvement

    You can help make important decisions about our school by participating in PTA/PTO, school council meetings, and Title I annual meetings.
    There are several measures used to determine your child’s progress toward the standards. These include the annual Georgia Criterion-Referenced Competency Test (CRCT), benchmark or standards checks, which measure progress toward smaller sets of standards throughout the year, and teacher-made tests. Results from the CRCT and interpretations of the results are distributed annually.
    Each school has a school/parent compact that has been revised during the annual Title I parent meeting and outlines how parents and school personnel will be responsible for supporting students.
    Parent activities, workshops, and trainings are developed around your response to the annual parent survey, as well as needs addressed throughout the year. Your participation in and evaluation of these activities are beneficial to building better ties between home and school. Trainings are also held for school personnel to help build parental involvement.
    Transition activities are planned for students moving from prekindergarten to kindergarten, fifth to sixth grade, and eighth to ninth grade.
    There are many components of a Title I school wide plan. These include:
    • A comprehensive needs assessment of the school, which describes the academic areas and other factors that may affect achievement
    • Reform strategies for addressing the needs of the school
    • Instruction by highly qualified teachers
    • Professional development for school personnel
    • Strategies to increase parent involvement
    • Plans for assisting preschool children in the transition to kindergarten
    • Measures to include teachers in decision-making
    • Coordination of local, state, and federal services
    • Activities for students who are struggling
    • Help with understanding test results
    • Collection, analysis, and distribution of achievement data
    • Annual revision of the school wide plan with help from parents/community
    • Translation of information, if necessary
    Please contact your child’s principal for more information.
