Awards and Recognition at C.R.E.S.
At Crooked River Elementary School we frequently recognize students who are doing the right thing!  Making wise choices, showing respect to teachers and classmates and following our three school expectations; Be Respectful, Be Responsible, and Be Safe.  Some of our school-wide awards and recognitions include the following. 

Terrific Kids - sponsored by the St. Marys Kiwanis Club this award is given out quarterly to one student from each homeroom who is demonstrating the Camden County Character Trait of the Month.  Students are presented awards at our quarterly Fin-tastic Awards Ceremony which include a certificate from the St. Marys Kiwanis Club, pencils and bumper stickers.

Service Member of the Month - Military service members from Kings Bay Submarine Base come to our school in uniform to present special certificates to students who have demonstrated the character traits and gone above and beyond in all ways.  Teachers write a paragraph about why the student is deserving of the Service Member of the Month and the military members read the teacher's words at the quarterly Fin-tastic Awards Ceremony.  This award is also presented at the end of the year, but for Service Member of the Year, which includes an engraved plaque!

Accelerated Reader - School-wide awards vary year to year so that the children are always excited and reading!  This year we will have a Reading Parade in the fall!  All students who reach their reading goal for the quarter will get to parade around the school with pride!  A spring reward is planned in May to the Aquatic Center.  See the media center webpage for all the details. 

Writing Students receive gold, silver, and bronze medals for outstanding essay writing on the three writing assessments for Narrative, Informational, and Opinion Writing.  The gold and silver medals are awarded to students on the CRES Morning Show. 

Quarterly Assemblies - Students will be recognized for outstanding achievements at quarterly assemblies that we call "Fin-tastic" Awards Ceremonies.  For our first nine-weeks the assembly was a time for our students to practice proper assembly behavior and etiquette.  Thereafter, parents of students receiving awards will be invited to attend as well.

We Love Our Volunteers!
Because of YOU, parents, volunteers, and community organizations, our school is a better place! 

Our volunteers, military service support groups, and community representatives help sell ice cream, run the school dojo store, supervise monthly after school movies, present monthly awards, shelve books in the media center and work with children in the classrooms. Thank you!

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.

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.
