Exciting News Cougars!
Crane Middle School has recently applied for grant through the U.S. Department of Education. With this grant, CrMS would become a 21st Century Community Learning Center! This program would allow our school to provide opportunities for academic support and enrichment outside of normal school hours.
Along with helping students meet standards in academic subjects, this will provide extra-curricular enrichment that will complement their core classes. Families of students will also benefit from literacy and other educational services offered as part of this program.
Keep an eye out for more information in the future!
