Learn, Grow, Lead.

We learn ways to learn, grow, and lead that contribute to the larger community and invite our best human qualities to shine.

The Community Roots School

The Community Roots School is now offering half-day, offsite Kindergarten for the 2015-2016 school year. Enrollment forms are due by July 31st for the lottery. CRS will hold the Kindergarten Lottery on Monday, August 3rd at 6pm. You can mail them or email to traeger_miranda@silverfalls.k12.or.us.

Due to capacity limitation at our current facility, CRS will be offering Kindergarten in a room at the United Methodist Church at 203 W. Main Street. The school day will be from 12:00 - 3:15 and will follow the CRS calendar. If you need more information, please email Miranda Traeger at traeger_miranda@silverfalls.k12.or.us.
