CMS has a team of Beta Club Members at a Leadership Conference. This post is shared from their Facebook page! The students earned a spot at Nationals with the Lead Outside of the Box competition. They were given a challenge yesterday and had to come up with a plan of action and present it today. The challenge was to find ways to help kids reduce stress and anxiety. They came up with Calming Corners. It’s a room where students can be sent to calm down, chill out, relieve stress, etc. it would have 4 corners: blue corner-chill corner with bean bags, soft lighting stress balls, etc; green corner-healing corner for students with stress headaches and stomach aches...it will have aromatherapy diffusers, stress balls, cold compresses, etc; purple corner-shred your feelings corner where students who are frustrated or mad or upset can go and write their feelings down or draw a picture and then shred it so nobody sees it; yellow corner-meditation corner where they can practice meditation and deep breathing/cool down techniques. I thought this was an excellent idea and they did a fantastic job planning all the details! Only 4 students could present, but all six girls planned this out, so they all qualified!

Upon investigation it was discovered that there was a rusted handgun located near the creek bed that runs through the middle of our campus. Law enforcement was immediately contacted and a current investigation is underway. At this point we are not aware that any actual threat was made to students or staff as a result of the gun being on campus. The safety of our students and staff is top priority.

The Crossett School District would like to inform our parents and patrons about a statewide situation involving schools in Arkansas. The Little Rock FBI office issued a general awareness statement regarding an unsubstantiated report they received from a source that lives out of the country and whose identity could not be confirmed. The report indicated that a school shooting would occur in Arkansas on 8/29/19. The reporting party allegedly received the information while playing an online video game. The threat is not specific to any school in Arkansas and there are no known threats directed at Crossett School District. However, we take all safety concerns seriously and will continue to monitor the situation and work with local law enforcement to ensure students and staff are safe at all times. Again, the general awareness statement is not specific to any school district in Arkansas, including Crossett School District.

Neel Childress, an 11th-grade student at Crossett High School, recently attended Inclusion Film Camp hosted by Northwest Arkansas Community College(NWACC) in Bentonville, AR. The camp targets junior and senior high school students with IEPs or 504 plans who are interested in pursuing or exploring a career in the film industry. The camp only admits 50 students annually for an intense five-day learning experience. The film camp is funded by Vocational Rehabilitation of Arkansas. Joey Travolta, a veteran filmmaker, is the owner of Inclusion Films and collaborates with Arkansas Transition and Arkansas Rehabilitation to host the film camp. Neel attended film camp with his mother, Rachel Johnson, the week of April 29- May 3. While he was at camp, he learned about the history of film, developed a script, helped produce a short film, and learned how special effects makeup is done with other students from across Arkansas. Barry Pearl, best known from his character “Doody” from Grease, is an instructor and helped coach some of the students in film camp. Other instructors included: Samantha Laurenti and Roger Welch. The instructors were absolutely fantastic with the camp goers. Neel was selected to do the clamper board or slate. He was a natural on the set. This job is one that every Hollywood movie has on its crew. On May 1, Mrs. Karen Frisby, Special Education LEA, and Mrs. Donna Culpepper from Crossett School District visited Neel at camp. Neel’s film was featured at the film festival in Bentonville this year. His family attended the festival where he was presented a GOPRO from Cox Communication. Joey has a film school, that lasts 20 weeks, in Bakersfield, California - it is one of five in the state. The school specializes in teaching people with disabilities how to further a career in the film industry. Joey recently produced a movie in which 70% of the crew were individuals with disabilities. Once Neel graduates from Crossett High School, he would like to attend the camp and explore the film industry as part of the camera crew. Joey Travolta believes in the students who attend the film camp. The camp teaches soft skills, independence, and how to be proactive to help them live in their community regardless of their disability. Once a person finishes his film school, he picks several of them to travel the road with him to film camps all over the United States. Some of his students from film camp have gone on to live productive lives and working on sets in Hollywood. Submitted by: Mrs. Donna Culpepper, CHS

Joshua Teutsch, a 10th grader from Crossett High School, has spent the second half of his sophomore year in the Owl Program (Opportunity for Work Based Learning). Joshua expressed that he wanted to work in the fire department. After talking with Assistant Chief Wilhite about the OWL program, the fire department was glad to have Josh on board. Josh has enjoyed his time after school with the young firefighters and medics. The guys have given him a great experience showing him about “Fire Life”. What they have also done, is guided him down the path of a potential full or part time post high school career. Successful partnerships with public agencies and local businesses are key to supporting these wonderful young adults in the Owl Program governed by Arkansas Rehabilitation and Arkansas Transition. Students like Josh get the chance to see what careers are really like when they get the chance to job shadow at places like the Crossett Fire Department. Josh’s job was setup with Assistant Chief Wilhite back in January. The fire department welcomed Josh with open arms after school. He has been going to the fire department twice a week for two hours and helping do odds and end jobs around the fire station. Josh has really enjoyed the job shadowing and extra money this opportunity has given him. Most students in high school don’t really know what they want as a career after high school. Being able to see what goes on in a career first hand gives students an idea if they would want to spend time in school for it. Submitted by: Mrs. Donna Culpepper, CHS

From CMS Engineering Eagles: Wow! What a day!! 2019 State Championship is in the books! It was a very emotional day and things didn’t always run smoothly...two teams had issues with parts breaking on their robots, but thanks to a suggestion from a team from another school, they were able to fix the issues and make it to the finals! My other team had a disappointing match up that caused them to drop in the rankings for finals match up...BUT with all of the disappointments today, we had some really great moments! All three teams scored their highest skills scores of the season! 6th grade and 7th grade were chosen for interviews with the judges for their Engineering Notebook! 5th grade team...let me just say that if there was a most improved award, this team would get it!! They went from scoring single digits at their first competition this season to scoring in the mid 20s today! Out of 121 teams in Arkansas, 5th grade is 24th, 6th grade is 16th and 7th grade is 5th in Skills!! In teamwork, out of the 38 teams that competed in the State Championship, 5th grade finished 16th, 6th grade finished 10th, and 7th grade finished 4th!! And how about these WORLD Skills standings: out of 3,074 teams, 5th grade is 879, 6th grade is 605, and 7th grade is 133!! All of those standings are impressive!! To say that I am proud of all of them would be an understatement! With all of this said, we did not come home empty handed! My 7th grade team won the Design Award and they will advance to the World Championship in Louisville, KY!!! I am so excited for them! Their Engineering Notebook and original robot design are AMAZING!! Now we prepare for Nationals in Council Bluffs, Iowa for all three teams April 1-3 and then on to Worlds for 7th grade April 28-30!! Congratulations to these teams! Way to go!

Currently, Crossett High School has implemented the OWL program for the 2018-2019 school year. The OWL program is a program that is funded by Arkansas Rehabilitation Services(ARS). Cynthia Bullard, a representative from ARS, visits Crossett High School twice every month to help with post secondary schools/ training options. The first semester Crossett started out with 10 students in the program. Mrs. Culpepper’s students performed jobs in the media center, cafeteria and custodial work in the building. Mrs. O‘Neal’s students participated by cleaning in various classrooms throughout the building. Her students also participated in a recycling program. Both teachers have witnessed positive effects from the program with participating students. These students are loyal, punctual, and enjoy learning their jobs to perform all duties expected of them. Additionally, the OWL program has been a step in the right direction to promote independence of Special Education students for post secondary options after high school. Since, the students have received their first paycheck several have opened up bank accounts with the support of local banks. This will help them build more skills for balancing checkbooks, want versus need purchases, how to file taxes, and many more skills that are needed after high school. For those students that want to further their educations the OWL program will guide these very students into post high school programs. Crossett High School Special Education students established an entrepreneurship business with the help of art students. This business allows students to serve coffee/ hot chocolate from mobile carts (Hospitality Cart & Crossett Cafe Cart) around the school. These students are building confidence while learning to take turns, making eye contact with people, how to communicate with people, and how to count money. They are really enjoying selling coffee to the teachers and administrators in the building. Six of the students pushing carts around the school are calling themselves the “Green Men”, and it has stuck. You’ll see the carts on Wednesdays and the students really appreciate the staff that have supported this group. The OWL program has been a positive move for Crossett High School. The students have really improved their skills since the first day of starting the OWL program. Soon the students will participate in off campus opportunities. Several local businesses have shown interest in our students, because the OWL program actually funds work / training hours up to 20 hours per week. Our students have interests in working in the local fire department, Georgia Pacific, bowling alley and Daylight Donuts shop who has also decided to donate pastries to the carts this semester. Finally, the OWL program is on its early legs here at Crossett High School and is really turning out to be a positive impact on the students and local community.

Any student that rides a bus and their parents cannot be confirmed to be at home or are not picked up by their parent, will stay at school with their teacher and will be taken home at the normal time at the end of the school day.

The Crossett School District plans to be open tomorrow. However, our forecast calls for 3-5 inches of rain overnight, which may be significant enough to cause some local flooding. The roads will be inspected in the early morning hours, and if they are adversely affected, the district will consider two options if needed. The first option will be a two-hour delayed start to school. If this occurs, pick up times for buses will be pushed back two hours to coincide with the delayed start of school. The second option would be to cancel classes and use our second AMI day. Again, Crossett Schools are planning to be open tomorrow, but we wanted to share these possibilities for planning purposes. Any announcement for a delayed start or cancellation will be made at approximately 6:00 a.m. If no announcement is made by 6:15 the district will be open at the regularly scheduled time.

The Crossett School District plans to be open tomorrow with possible minor modifications to bus routes. Areas that are still impacted are Ashley County Road 13 near Brushy Creek and White Station. These areas will be inspected in the morning, and if flooding is still an issue, these routes may be slightly modified. If any modifications cause a student not to be picked up by the bus and parents are unable to bring their child to school, we ask the parents to please contact the school. If a student is absent due to any bus route modifications, it will be excused with a parent note. There is a chance of rain overnight. However, the expected amounts are less than one-half inch. In the event we receive more than the expected rain and roads are adversely affected, the district will consider two options if needed. The first option will be a two-hour delayed start to school.

The Crossett School District has been approved for an Alternative Method of Instruction (AMI). Arkansas Act 862 of 2017 allows a public school district and open-enrollment public charter school to develop a plan for alternative methods of instruction to be used on days when the superintendent closes school due to exceptional or emergency circumstances. These circumstances might be snow, flooding, widespread illnesses, or other occurrences. During these days, students and families will be notified to work on AMI lessons. If the superintendent declares an AMI day, students will work on their AMI packet and return it to their teacher when they return to school. If the work is to be done online students will submit their work as prescribed by their teacher. If a student did not receive their AMI packet or cannot access the packet they will not be adversely affected. They will be allowed to make up their work when they return to school.

NEWS RELEASE OFFICE OF MEDIA SERVICES UNIVERSITY OF ARKANSAS AT MONTICELLO Students from Crossett and Hamburg High Schools recently received core curriculum certification by the National Center for Construction Education & Research (NCCER) after completing a series of welding classes at the UAM College of Technology-Crossett. Students completing the program received concurrent high school and college credit. NCCER certification means the students will be placed on a national registry used by employers to verify training of individuals applying for employment with their companies. "The American Welding Society did a study that showed the average age of welders today is 58," said Donnie Dubose, a welding instructor at UAM COT-Crossett. "Job availability in welding is at an all-time high. There is an employment need of over 300,000 welders with no end in sight." According to Dubose, NCCER offers certification at multiple levels. Students must complete core skills before they are issued an NCCER card and certificate. Additional levels of certification may also be earned. "NCCER certification may also give students a higher entrance level wage," Dubose explained. "Many companies are using NCCER as their training program and certifying in advance will give these students an advantage." Students from Crossett High School participating in the program are Jareth Concannon, Hayden Matthews, Trenton Haen, Adolfo Gonzalez, Dillion Barnett, Joseph Monroe, Logan Black, Matthew Barnett, Taylor Thurman, Mitchell Cooley and Kyler Duncan. Hamburg students are Garret Ogletree, Logan Barner, Tyler Smith, Ben Wood and Dustin Snow.

At each length the students shoot once to practice, and then shoot 3 'ends' that are scored. The top score possible per round is 50.

There was a call made to Crossett Middle School, and though it was not deemed very credible, we are taking it seriously and in an abundance of caution the students have been evacuated from the building. The building is being searched with the assistance of law enforcement. When we feel it is safe for the students and staff, we will return to the classroom and continue with school.
