Kiwanis Senior Recognition

Isaiah Passmore, Spencer Cuvelier, Austin McAllister, Kaylie Henry, Tracy Martinek, and Blair Bodermann were honored by the Cresco Kiwanis Club during a recognition banquet held at the Cresco Country Club.

Congratulations Students and Parents!

A very sincere thank you to the Cresco Kiwanis Club for recognizing these outstanding seniors on all of their accomplishments.  

Social Host Bill
In April 2014, Iowa Governor Terry Branstad signed a Social Host bill into law. The law states that an adult host who knowingly allows a person age 17 or younger to consume alcohol is subject to a misdemeanor charged with up to a $200 fine per minor involved. Subsequent violations would result in a $500 fine. Many counties and cities have local ordinances which are stricter than state law. In those areas the stricter law prevails.

Welding Open House

Student welding projects were recently on display at the NICC - Cresco Center.

Students were on hand to answer questions and show off their individual projects.  The large picnic tables they designed and constructed as a team were also on display.

Great work by all involved!

Free Presentation on Financial Aid Offered

High school juniors and their parents will be able to get information on the college financial aid process during a free presentation offered by Crestwood Dollars for Scholars, Crestwood High School and the Iowa College Access Network® (ICAN).

The event will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 16th in the gym at Crestwood High School. During the presentation, students and parents will receive information on topics including the financial aid process, understanding FAFSA results and college costs, financial aid options, the scholarship process and completing and filing financial aid forms.

“This presentation is very helpful for juniors and parents who are unsure exactly what is involved in the financial aid process,” says Trish Hartman. “As students get closer to their senior year and graduation, they and their families often find the entire process confusing and discouraging. Our aim is to make the process more clear, especially with the changes that have occurred.”

Families will learn how to complete and file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), a free form available from the U.S. Department of Education via Although professional assistance is not necessary to file the form, ICAN’s free services help reduce confusion and can ensure accuracy.

For more information about the presentation, students and parents should contact Trish Hartman at Crestwood High School by calling 563-547-2764.

April Attendance Update

We believe in positive school attendance, knowing that attending school has a huge impact on a student's academic success starting in kindergarten and continuing through high school. Parents/Caregivers/Guardians play a key role in making sure students get to school safely every day and understand why attendance is so important for success in school and on the job. Research proves that if a student is not in school (excused or unexcused), these absences have a major impact on their educational progress. We do understand that "life" happens and it is a necessity to miss school, work, etc...  Family vacations, appointments, and other obligations are a necessity. Please continue to call our office and inform us of those absences and be here all other days. When a student misses a day, they really do miss a lot.  

Our average daily attendance rate is, unfortunately, down slightly when compared to this time last year.

We have four less students enrolled in grades 7-12 than we did a year ago at this time. In grades 7-12 we have 580 students in the seats, compared to 584 this time last year.
