Principal’s Message

It’s a great time to be a Cardinal! This year promises to be an exciting time filled with the beginnings of construction, a new “cottage community”, and transformations happening around every corner! What a special place to be!

We are excited about the 2017-18 school year!! Our school theme will be “Building Our Future!” We will incorporate our long-awaited renovation into our learning this year! Students will have an opportunity to see how everything progresses, from planning to reality!

If you are new to us, you will soon discover that we have the most amazing students, staff, and families! I am so inspired by the efforts our Cardinals have begun under the Leader in Me process to build student leadership qualities using Dr. Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. In my years of experience with the Leader in Me, I have seen firsthand the positive impact this process has on student growth and achievement! Crestview joins a global Leader in Me community of over 3,000 schools, including 5 Henrico elementary schools. This marks Crestview’s 5th year as a Leader in Me school!

Crestview staff members are eager to work with your families to create a safe, nurturing school environment where students are excited to learn and grow. And, a big thank you goes to our tremendous PTA for their efforts to support us in so many ways! I encourage all families to join the PTA and consider ways to support their meaningful work at Crestview. Please contact me with any concerns, observations, or suggestions you have. I value and respect your perspective, as you know your child better than anyone. Know that I am here to work with you to make sure your child is happy and progressing. I encourage you to check this site frequently as we will keep it updated with all of the latest happenings at Crestview.

Your partner in education,

Jennifer Drake
