New Text Messaging Feature
This week The Croswell-Lexington School District rolled out our new text messaging system that will go along with our email and our voicemail system. You will be receiving a text message from a short code number 68453 that will ask you to respond by opting in or opting out. You can opt in by replying YES. This will allow you to receive further text messages from the district to your cell phone. Your cell phone number needs to be listed in your child's contact information at the school. You can check this by logging into Skyward Family Access. Some of you may have already received the text message. If you haven't you will receive a message later today if your cell phone is connect to your child. Thanks and have a great day!

Hawks family pledges $250,000 in scholarships for Cros-Lex students
Jarold and Marijean Hawks of Jeddo have pledged $250,000 for scholarships to the St. Clair County Community College Foundation’s All Aboard: Campaign for Talent, Technology and Tomorrow.The donation will establish the Jarold and Marijean Hawks Cros-Lex Scholarship Fund. To be eligible for the scholarship, college freshmen and sophomores must have graduated from Croswell-Lexington High School with a cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or better and submit an essay. Awards will vary up to a maximum of $3,000 annually.
“I want to give back to the community,” Jarold Hawks said. “If you give a person an opportunity to achieve, they can apply these achievements to other areas in their lives. It’s all about creating opportunities these students wouldn’t have otherwise.”
Jarold graduated from Croswell-Lexington High School and attended what was then Port Huron Junior College and went on to co-establish Black River Manufacturing. He is now retired.
"I am so proud that Mr. and Mrs. Hawks have dedicated money to help us achieve our mission of sending more students on to college," said former Cros-Lex Superintendent Dr. Kevin Miller. "This is the epitome of giving back to the community in which you live and changing the lives of young people through college education."
