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


We would like to invite you to come check out an exciting event that is taking place at our school this weekend. This Saturday (9am - 4pm) and Sunday (9am - 8pm) the Boston Crusaders Drum and Bugle Corps will be rehearsing at Crestview. They will perform Saturday Night at Paul Brown Stadium in Massilion. You can watch them practice for FREE!

The Boston Crusaders are a member of the Drum Corps International organization that sponsors competitions across the country each summer. 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.

Survey: PAC Ticketing


Dear Crestview Community:

We are looking at the possibility of an an on-line ticketing system for paid events in the Perfoming Arts Center. Most events are FREE; however outside events and our spring musical come with a charge. We want to know if you would like the ability to use a credit card and pick your seat to an event in advance. Currently, everything is General Admission. We have a one question survey to see if this is of interest for our community.


Sophomore Dominic Perry Breaks School Shot Put Record

Shot Put

Thrower aiming to make state

By Brian Dzenis

“My goal is just to beat my [personal record] and wherever that takes me is where I end up,” Perry said.

Right now, his personal record would take him to Columbus and there’s still time to get even better.

On April 11, Perry broke the school record in the shot put with a throw of 54-7.25. The previous mark was Scott Raschilla’s throw of 52-7.25 in 2004. The sophomore’s throw would have been good for sixth place in last year’s state tournament.

“He’s had some incredible throws in practice that you just sit there and watch a kid that’s only 16 years old throw that far,” Crestview coach Greg Woolman said.

Perry crossed the 50-feet mark — a safe number to get to state — during his freshman season.

“I didn’t really know where I was going to end up. It just sort of happened,” Perry said.

He won a district title before injuring himself at regionals.

“I was warming up and I stepped out of the pit and I slipped and fell on my foot and I ended up tearing a plate in my [big] toe,” Perry said. “The big toe is a lot of balance. There was so much pain going through there. It changes your form. It changes everything.”

Facility Meeting: 2/16/17 in HS Cafeteria



The Crestview Local Schools is in the process of doing a facility study to address our physical plant needs. The first priority is to address the academic needs of our students. Secondly, the study includes examining and seeking business partners for a possible community center. No decision or plan is in place! We will spend the next three to six months determining needs and priorities. We will examine how to do this with the least or no impact on our taxpayers. We have been notified that were are eligible for .88 cents on the dollar from the state for renovation or construction. The state will also assist us in this study and assist whether their dollars are applicable to our needs.The consultants will be here on the 16th during the meeting too. The school will present an update at this meeting We will be very transparent and seek community input. At the end of the three to six months we will have options to look at so that we can stay solvent for many years to come. It will be at that time, that we determine our plan.

Paper Physical Exam Forms 2017-18 Form

The OHSAA has approved the use of Privit Profile as an electronic alternative to the paper pre-participation evaluation forms required from student-athletes. Each high school athletic department has its own URL for accessing the digital forms required by OHSAA for medical clearance.

Parents will be responsible for going to the appropriate high school Privit Profile web site to complete the health questionnaire, and student-athletes will still be required to complete a physical exam with a medical professional. Athletic Departments are able to access their school’s web link and information to introduce the new process to your student-athletes and their parents by searching for your high school at www.e-ppe.com, and leveraging the welcome packet found here within the PRIVIT Help Center.

Crestview preparing for Challenges,Opportunities

LISBON — With the possibility of renovating school buildings, expanding space and a possible community center addition, Crestview’s board of education held a public meeting Thursday to get some feedback from members of the community.

At the board meeting earlier this month, the board purchased two modulars from the Talawanda school district on the other side of the state in an effort to have more classroom space next school year. But that is only a temporary solution, according to Superintendent Matthew Manley.

The modulars may be used next year for “specials,” which are classes such as music or art where students only go for a short period of time once a week. The bathrooms in the modulars may not be hooked into an actual septic system, more of a temporary holding system which can be pumped out.

In the meantime, the modulars will allow for more space to be opened up for preschool. Manley said 50 to 60 children are currently being turned away who want preschool and the lines on signup day have started forming hours before the registration begins. The hope is this plan will give more children in the district a chance to better prepare for kindergarten.

Manley said Talawanda was the only owner of those modulars, which were new in 2003 and the district was using until they were able to move into new space during Christmas break. The modulars will have security cameras and intruder locks on the doors.

Manley also pointed out currently at Crestview there are $1.6 million in physical repairs and projects, but only $230,000 in the permanent improvement plan each year. Currently on the list is $355,000 in repairs to the flat roof portion of one of the buildings and a track that if it does not get resurfaced soon will deteriorate beyond repair.


MS Track finishes 2nd in Rebel Relays


Track Closed until August 2017 for repairs

The track is currently under resurfacing/reconstruction. We respectfully ask that no one use the track or football field until all work is completed, near the end of July, even if a gate is open, as there are heavy duty equipment trucks in and out. If you have any questions, please call Mrs. Nappi in the Athletic Department at 330 892-3116 or the Board office at 330 482-5526

Bullying and Harrassment together

School Climate Mission
We are committed at Crestview to create a bully free environment.  RESPECT for others plays a critical role in the development of REBELPRIDE with every student who attends CRESTVIEW.

If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to call, email, or set an appointment to meet with any of our teachers, principals, and counselors. The first step is an informal report with direct dialogue. If the problem persists, you may wish to file a more formal report.

Filing a Report for Bullying/Harassment/Intimidation
Bullying, harassment and intimidation is defined by the Ohio Revised Code as an “intentional written, verbal, electronic, or physical act that a student has exhibited toward another particular student more than once and the behavior causes mental or physical harm to the other student, and is sufficiently severe, persistent, or pervasive that it creates an intimidating, threatening, or abusive educational environment for the other student.”  (ORC3313.666) 

If you have been the victim, or know of a victim, who is suffering bullying, harassment or intimidation as defined above, please use the form below to submit a report.  Reports should be turned in to the building principal of the victim.  If you wish to report anonymously, please mail the completed form to the appropriate principal.

False reports will result in disciplinary action.
