a wireless laptop computer lab capable of monitoring computer use to show the
student how much time he or she spends using computers.
The school's playground
facilities include swings, soccer goals, a baseball backstop, a running track,
a jungle gym and sliding boards.
The parent teacher association, which meets
monthly, is vibrant at Crestview, according to school officials.
the school sponsors special events such as Buddy Day -- a competition involving
physical and computer games. Kindergarten and first-grade students are helped
through the competition by third and fourth-graders, creating an atmosphere of
peer support at the school.
An accelerated reader program awards students
who meet their reading goals with the "Reader Celebration Award," each year.
As part of the award ceremony, the principal dresses in a costume selected by
students. According to school officials, this year the principal will dress as
Elvis Presley, but last year Principal James Vardy dressed as Cinderella, showing
a commitment beyond traditional duty.
Each year, Crestview students compete
in "Destination Imagination," a state competition involving problem solving.
The school has an unusual program for elementary schools. "We have our own TV
station, 'KROC' (Kids Reporting On Crestview)," said Vardy. "Every morning the
students report on the news, weather, lunch menu and things of this sort."
