Mountain Climbers
The Mountain Climber Recognition Program was initiated at Crestwood High School in order to recognize students for improving or maintaining excellence in their academics, behavior, or overall citizenship. Many students face situations that require them to overcome adversity in order for them to reach their full potential in school. Nominated by Crestwood High School students or staff,  this is a testament to these individuals and their positive impact they have had on our school community.  Congratulations to Elizabeth Loberg, Dylan Johnson, Alysa Osmonson and Kevin Pira.  You have made a difference! 

New Dean of Students / Activities Director
Welcome Greg Hiemstra, CRESTWOOD's new Dean of Students / Activities Director! Mr. Hiemstra is coming to CADET NATION from Garner-Hayfield-Ventura Jr-Sr High School where he has taught Social Studies and Coached. Good things are happening! 

Welcome Coach Erickson!
CADET NATION's new HEAD VOLLEYBALL COACH Kelly Erickson and her family was on campus last week.

The Class of 2017
Sunday, May 21, we will gather in the Crestwood High School Field house to celebrate the graduation of the class of 2017!  It has been an extreme pleasure to know these young people and it is my belief they are "doers" and "achievers". The class of 2017 is a reflection of all that is good and right not only in Howard and Winneshiek counties, but also the State of Iowa.  I have heard many times that the fate of our Nation is in the hands of our young people.  Knowing the class of 2017, our future is in VERY good hands.  God Bless the class of 2017 and their families.  
John Carver, Superintendent of Schools
