I want to welcome our new families to Crane Middle School (CrMS) as well as welcome back our returning Cougars. I hope your summer treated you well. We have lots to be excited about as we begin our new school year. I am thrilled to announce that Crane Middle School is once again the highest ranked middle school in Yuma County based on our 2018 AzMERIT data. This is a tremendous honor to celebrate. I am so proud of the contributions from our Cougar staff, parents, and students to make this happen.
We have kicked off the 2018-2019 school year with so much excitement and positive energy. This year promises to be full of incredible opportunities for all of our students and staff. CrMS has redefined ourselves as the most innovative in cutting edge practices and a philosophy that focuses on your child as a whole. Programs introduced to CrMS are Den (Advisory), Discovery, and Career and Technical Education (CTE). We believe the importance of creating problem solvers and advocating for our students through Den. We will offer choice of classes through Discovery. We will be cutting edge through Career and Technical Education courses.
In closing, I do not need to remind you how important your job is for your child to be successful at CrMS. It requires your commitment that your child attends school every day, contributes to a positive learning environment, and strives for excellence. Let’s have an amazing school year. Work hard! Get smart!
Mr. Tyree, Principal
