Principal's Message

Dear Students and Parents,

Crosswell Elementary is a special place where we strive to build on each child's strengths! I am very excited to begin another year as principal of Crosswell Elementary. This year our theme is "Camp Crosswell: Blazing A Trail For Learning." We hope that you will become involved in our school activities as a vital part of our Crosswell team. Help us learn more about heroes that help us each day as we partner with you in educating your child.

Please read this handbook carefully with your children and save it for reference throughout the year. It has been updated with information that is current for the 2017-2018 school year. You will also receive pertinent information on Mondays through our parent newsletter, Crosswell Connections, with updated monthly calendars, and on our school website at www.pickens.k12.sc.us/cwe . Each teacher also has a classroom website that has important information regarding upcoming assignments and other classroom needs. You can also gain access to your child's grades, attendance, and lunch account information through the website and Schoology. Phone calls with recorded reminders will be sent periodically through our ParentLink system. Stay connected to us this year through these valuable resources!

Feel free to contact me with any concerns or suggestions. If you need to reach me other than in person, please call (864) 397-1610 or email at andyholliday@pickens.k12.sc.us

How can you get involved in our school? Consider joining the PTO or School Improvement Council. We have a great team of parents who provide valuable leadership for our school. We also encourage our parents to seek out classroom and school wide volunteer opportunities. Volunteer training is held several times at the beginning of the year and is followed by multiple sessions during the school year.

We hope you will work side by side us for a great year!

Andy Holliday, Principal
