Welcome To Crete Public Schools

Dr. Mike Waters, Superintendent

Welcome back everyone!  Although the summer went by quickly, I hope every person took some time to recharge their batteries.  The 2018-19 school year is filled
with high expectations, hard work, and a determined group of students, staff, teachers, administrators, board members and parents.


In September 2017, we began a journey of strategic planning which will be approved in the August 2018 Board meeting.  Our new 5-year plan will provide guidance, vision, and a direct path forward for Crete Public Schools.  The strategic plan brought together many people in our community to discuss issues facing CPS.  We have a great school system and this strategic plan will be one part of our success story in the near future.


Crete Public Schools has a long and widely recognized commitment to all students.  As we continue to increase  student enrollment numbers, it is imperative to have open, two-way communication on many topics.  The most important topic is your child.  As administrators, teachers and staff, we work diligently every day to meet the needs of every child.  We are here to help your child(ren) attain their educational goals.


Now that you are a part of our CPS family, I encourage you to ask should you have questions.  Administrators, teachers, and staff are here to help.  Beginning a new grade, a new school building, or a new school system can be exciting and filled with apprehension for parents and students.  Please communicate with the school about questions which might arise during the school year.  It is important to the success of each student for the school and families to work together.  Communication is a crucial component to a successful school.  You may find many informational pieces on our website,  www.creteschools.com .  I can be contacted directly at mike.waters@creteschools.org or 402-826-5855.


Go Cardinals!
