Town Hall Meeting 4/24/18


The Ohio School Facilities Commission  has released their report on the conditions of our school facilities. The state has spent 12 months studying the buildings and has completed the information. We will have an informational meeting to go over the report with the community. We will hold several meetings and coffee houses so that we can address questions and be transparent as we move forward together.  Here is the first meeting information.

Who: District, Share State OFCC Report

When: 4/24/18

Where: Crestview Performing Arts Center

Time: 6:30 PM


Student Athlete: Danny Moore

Student-Athlete: Danny Moore

COLUMBIANA, Ohio (WYTV) - Crestview senior Danny Moore knows how to light up a room. 

He's a special talent for the Rebels, with a great personality. Danny's on track to graduate with 11 varsity letters in five different sports. Plus, he's a top-notch student, earning him the honor of our "33 Student-Athlete of the Week".

"Winning is very important to me," said Moore. "And bettering myself is even more important."

Danny is always up for a challenge. He's a versatile athlete at Crestview and State qualifier at the indoor track meet earlier this year. Danny's a big part of the relay teams and is team captain for the second straight season. 

"I think my main role on the track team is keeping everybody loose. because like I said, track is torture. when you think about it, running in circles is pretty torturous. so track is all about having fun. 

Danny's passion and positive outlook carried over to the football field, where he was an All-County safety. He helped lead Crestview to two playoff appearances in the past three seasons. 

"In football, I just poured everything I could into every play because I just wanted to win," said Moore.

"And for track, I mean it's 100%, because I want to win and I want to be one of those guys that they're like, man he was pretty crazy."





Who: 27 middle schools teams from northeast Ohio (Columbiana, Mahoning, Portage, Stark, Summit, and Tuscarawas counties)

What: The finals for the 9-week 2018 Northeast Ohio Genius Challenge: The 2018 Genius Challenge – “Excursion Earth.” Design a fleet of luxury planes, and plot a vacation from Akron-Canton airport with seven exotic stops.

Where: Canton Cultural Center for the Arts (1001 Market Ave North, 44702) When: Thursday April 12, 6 – 8 pm
The Presenting Sponsor: KeyBank

The Background: To demonstrate the power of teaching art and science together, AiS began the Genius Project in 2015 with just 20 middle schools from one county. This year there are 350 students and 70 teams from six counties.

Dear Rebel Families…


This morning we had a bus on  an elementary run get into an accident. Our bus was stopped with its flashers on for student pick up. Another vehicle ran into the back corner of the bus. We had 8 students on the bus at the time. The best and greatest news is that all students and our driver are fine. NONE OF THE STUDENTS AND OUR DRIVER NEEDED MEDICAL ATTENTION.  Families were notified and the children went to school. I commend the emergency personnel, Nurse Janet, Our driver and our bus supervisor for their outstanding work. Most of all I would like to thank our kids for staying calm and their families for their patience, care, and love. Parents your calmness and love was just AWESOME!

We just wanted to make sure that everyone had the most up to date information!

Strengthen our Athletic Booster Club!



(One Call from Mr. Manley 7-13-17; 6:00 PM)

Dear Rebel Families:

I am calling to ask your support for our Crestview Athletic Boosters:

At Crestview, we've been fortunate to have an outstanding Athletic Boosters run by a great group of officers who have provided tens of thousands of dollars in the way of equipment, scholarships, t-shirts, and numerous other items. The group however is shrinking. When you have only a few, no one wins. Volunteers live at school which is impossible for family life balance.

In the past six years, the group has supported kids with scholarships, equipment, recognition, and school spirit and pride. They have spent over $130,000 in six years and they are in solid financial shape. We need your time. 100% of the funds are raised through workers at the concession stand. The goal is to get many volunteers so each will only have to work a handful of hours in  year. Without your help, this group supporting our kids faces disbanding. What would it be like with no recognition programs, no programs, and school spirit? You can be part of the solution while there is time to save and support this viable group!

Crestview to Host Boston Crusader Drum and Bugle Corp 6/24 and 6/25

The participants in each of these organizations range in age from 14 to 21 and tour the the United States sleeping on gym floors and tour buses while rehearsing 10 to 12 hours each day to perfect their performances.

This is one of the best drum and bugle corps (VERY intense version of a marching band) in the world. All rehearsals are free and open to the public! Please come and see great marching music happening in your own backyard!!! 

Here is a clip from their show entitled "Wicked."

MS & HS Rebels invited to join the All American Conference


On Tuesday,June 6, 2017, the All American Conference held a morning meeting and unanimously voted to extend an official invitation to the Crestview Rebels to the blue tier of the All American Conference. The Superintendent will be recommending to the school board at the June 14th meeting that we accept this invitation. The blue tier is comprised of schools in the Youngstown area that have district enrollments between 1150 and 1383 students. We would be the 3rd largest school in the conference; thus it is a good fit. We currently play some of these of these schools next year. The schools are:Campbell, Liberty, Brookfield, Labrae, Newton Falls, Champion and Edgewood. The invitation is to begin play officially for winter sports 2018 (18-19 school year). Football contracts are signed for two years and thus the schools already have contracts for fall of 17 & 18. The AD's will be working with the AAC to schedule us on their independent dates where openings allow through the fall of 2018.

Summer is almost here! It is that time of the year for all students’ lunch accounts to be paid in full.  The Cafeteria needs to have your child’s account paid in full by Wednesday May 17, 2017. We will not allow students to charge lunches after May 17, 2017.

 If your child has a balance at the end of the year, it will carry over until the next school year. The student’(s) report card will be held at the end of the school year if they owe a fee in the cafeteria. Please bring the exact amount or write a check to pay fees, to the building your child attends. I want to thank you for your support of the cafeteria. It has been a wonderful year!

When do we make up a snow day?






The Crestview Local Schools this year will physically make-up days with students after 8 closures or calamity days during the 2017 - 2018 school year. We currently are at 5 closures. We are now on hours. In the past the state gave 5 snow days. In years where the winters were harsh, the state sometimes waived the extra days to make-up. This is sometimes confusing, but for this year we wanted our community to know where we are at.

If we hit 8 days of closure and have a ninth, then that ninth day would be made up the Monday after Easter in accordance with our school calendar. Our hope is that we will not even need to address make-up days. We do encourage you to have your child read on any days off. Our teachers are busy preparing lessons, reading educational articles, grading, preparing their classroom and perfecting their craft during these closure days.  Learning is an opportunity and we still need to grow our students. It is just sometimes, the weather makes it unsafe for our buses to travel.
