The Crestview Parent Association organizes many activities and services to enrich the experiences of everyone at Crestview. There are many levels of involvement available for those who graciously donate their time in support of the school. Participation in the Association’s many Friend & Fund Raising Events and Support Services is a great way to build community and actively contribute to the atmosphere of fun and teamwork that Crestview students and parents enjoy throughout the school year.
Parent Association Events
Our biggest event of the year and a beloved Crestview tradition, our annual Walk-a-Thon brings Crestview students and families, alumni, and prospective families together to both fundraise for our school and instill healthy values of exercise and fitness. Students set goals and walk laps on the track of the neighboring St. Francis School.
Our annual Online Auction occurs over Presidents’ Day Weekend. Crestview families and local businesses donate items and services to be auctioned to raise money for Crestview. In addition, Crestview teachers and faculty members contribute priceless experiences for families to bid on.
Our Book Fair committee works with our librarian, Mrs. Bravin, to share a love of reading with our children and bring the community together in benefit of the Crestview library. In partnership with a book vendor, books are made available to purchase in the library.
Back to School Night
Our first event of the year, Back to School Night is an opportunity to learn about and sign up for Parent Association Committees, visit the classrooms, and learn more about your student’s academic year.
