School Official Point of View

Today s elementary student is living in the age of instant access and constant communication: Twitter; YouTube; Facebook, Instagram. Want to know the distance from the Earth to Mars? Google it. Want to know what your friend is eating for dinner? Text him. It s important for students to make sense of the information and filter all of this data to make good decisions. That s where Crestview School of Communication comes in. Students focus on three distinct strands of communication: oral and written communication; visual communication; and communication through media literacy. As early as first grade, students use microphones and sound systems to speak publicly and learn they can impact and have influence through their communication. The school has a state-of-the-art digital television studio, CVTV, where students get hands-on experience in the world of broadcasting. Students are in charge of all areas of production from serving as anchor to engineer to roving reporter. They gain real-world experience by operating the cameras, writing the scripts, and handling all transitions. The TV studio isn t the only way students learn to communicate. Radio broadcasting during lunch periods; communication through print - school newspapers; online communications such as blogging; classroom websites; Skyping; Facetime; video conferencing; visual communication through photography class and yearbooks; offer many other ways for students to sharpen their communication skills.

As an educator at Crestview Elementary School, I am proud to be a part of the fine learning environment of our school. Teachers, Faculty, and parents are very supportive and dedicate themselves to continually improving the academic and behavioral success of our students. I challenge all parents to come visit and see the positive, everchanging learning environment within the school. Please take a tour with our principal, Mrs. Kim Brown, and let her share how Crestview has evolved!

My interaction with Crestview came as an educator and a grandparent outside of the state of Indiana. My grandchild was in the fourth grade. His teacher had his mother's permission to make contact with me and she did. It was a wonderful year of collaborating about the educational needs of one of her students. I have no complaints. If he needed extra help, incentives or even funding for activities his father's family was there. I do recommend to all parents/guardians stay involved with your child(children) educational facility. Let them know you care by volunteering your time or at least make sure you work with your children as far their school work is concerned. When a child says 'I have no homework' there is always review over that day or weeks lessons learned. Be there in all respects for your children. Teachers/Schools can't do it alone. We need you!
