SUPERINTENDENT MESSAGE

Hello Crestwood Community,

Crestwood Local Schools has many dedicated staff members committed to our students’ success. We strive to meet the needs of our students and will continue to work to get better every day.

This Quality Profile details our dedication, successes, and goals for improvement based on your feedback. In April 2022, the Crestwood Board of Education approved the new three-year Strategic Plan for the district. The plan includes eight goals: Communication; Culture, Climate, and Wellness; Facilities/ Infrastructure Safety and Security; Technology; Finances; Human Resources and Business Operations; Programming and Curriculum Development; and Board Relations. We will work toward attaining these goals.

I am proud of the efforts of both our students and staff, especially over the last three years of dealing with the pandemic. We will continue to grow as an organization from these experiences, and we appreciate your support in making Crestwood a great place for our students to learn and grow.

As always, it is a great day to be a Red Devil!

Currently, we have students who are grouped into a pre-professional track and another set of students interested more in the trades. The program was established last school year with 13 students in the 11th and 12th grades. In our second year, the program has grown to 22 total students. Most of our interns are

MUSIC

6th Grade Band and Choir

The fourth, fifth and sixth graders had their first concert in three years. The concert looked a little different this year. The fourth, fifth, and sixthgraders all sang together on the same stage in the old middle school gymnasium. The 6th-grade band had 40+ members and had three concerts showing great growth throughout the year.

7-12 Music Program

The 7-12 Crestwood Vocal Program had an exciting year packed with concerts and OMEA contests. This year the students were able to perform a 7-12 Fall Festival, 7-12 Winter Concert with 7th/8th Grade

serving locally within the district at Crestwood Primary, Hiram College, Advanced Rehab and the Mantua Police Department to name a few. However, we also have students in neighboring communities such as Kent State University (Twinsburg), Giulitto Farms (Ravenna), Grantwood Golf Course (Solon) and Coldwell Banker (Streetsboro). These students are expressing interest in agriculture, excavating, maintenance and construction

Girls’ Choir, participate in OMEA Solo & Ensemble at Firestone High School, participate in OMEA Large Group Adjudicated Event, perform a 7th/8th grade Spring Concert with 7th/8th Grade Girls’ Choir, and complete their first full Pops Concert Experience, ‘Singing Through the Decades’ as the high school’s last performance of the year.

as well as education, physical therapy, criminal justice, business and marketing.

At the end of the week, the students report back to class discussing the week’s events while chronicling their activities.

• OMEA Solo & Ensemble

Due to the number of students interested in choir, the program has been growing immensely. Next year, we will be able to split the high school choir into two groups. The students continue to amaze High School Music and Choir Teacher Nicole Nero with their musical

Crestwood High Drama Club (CHDC) saw a revival like no other during the 2021-2022 school year. The students and new director, Cameron Crabtree, took on a huge challenge: revitalizing theater at CHS. Through many obstacles, this was a record breaking year for CHDC. The students were able to perform in their 2021 fall play “Night at the Wax Museum,” which captivated audiences and introduced tons of new faces to the stage. Another great achievement was our 2021 Winter One Acts, where the students were able to finally bring back a 15+ year tradition of up and close Blackbox Theatre. Then, to close out a successful run, our students put on the phenomenal Broadway classic musical, “Annie” in spring 2022. With record breaking numbers, this musical turned out to be one of CHDC’s greatest successes ever. With the great success of this year and incredible parent/guardian involvement and support, we hope to continue to grow our theater program, continue to entertain the public, and work to become true patrons of the arts.
