Native American Grant Opportunity - Input Needed

May 7, 2021

Crescent Parents,

I hope that you are doing well as we close out the 2020- 2021 school year. I am writing to share some good news and seek your input and support. Crescent School District is going to apply for federal grant money to use to expand our services to our Native American students who Crescent School District.

Although the preliminary allocation is not huge it is about $15,000. I would like to use the funds to create a part time position for a liaison to work with the district, our Native American students and their families . I envision the “liaison” providing support in the following ways:

  • Supporting improved student attendance.
  • Improving the academic success of our students
  • Improving communication between the school and our families.
  • Helping the district identify programs that might be added to our curriculum in the future.
  • Improving the linkage between students, families and the school.

In order to complete the application that is due on May 14, 2021, evidence of parent and school collaboration is needed.

I invite parents to join in a meeting at the school library on Wednesday May 12, 2021 at 6 PM.  

You are welcome to attend in person (masks, health attestations and social distancing will be required.)   You may also choose to join the meeting via ZOOM at this link.
