    Craig was born and raised in Yakima, where he graduated from Davis High School. After earning his undergraduate degree from Eastern Washington University, Craig owned and managed a local restaurant.  Looking to better serve his community he went back to school to earn his Masters in Teaching from Heritage University.  Craig began his teaching career at Adams Elementary in Yakima where he taught 5th grade. While at Adams he continued his education by earning his Certification in Educational Leadership from Gonzaga University.

    His wife, Erin, is also employed by the Yakima School District. She is a Health and Fitness teacher at Davis High School.

  • EBT Funds Available to All YSD Students

    Posted by YSD Food Services on 7/6/2020

    Because COVID-19 closed our schools, your children are eligible for food assistance, called Pandemic EBT (P-EBT): Emergency School Meals Program.

    P-EBT provides families with funds to make up for some of the cost of meals while school was closed. This benefit is for Washington children in grades K-12 who receive free or reduced-price school meals. These benefits will be on an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card which is used like a debit card to buy groceries. Because all YSD students receive free breakfast and lunch, all YSD students are eligible regardless of income. If you do not already receive benefits, you will need to apply on or after June 30.  If you receive food assistance benefits already, the money will appear on your EBT on June 30.

    Update 7/6/20: We have been in contact with OSPI last week and they said that DSHS had the incorrect student list for Yakima School District which is why they turned down some parents; they are updating with the correct list which will show any student enrolled in Yakima School District that was grade K-12 in the school year 2019-2020 as eligible for PEBT.

    If you were denied, go to WashingtonConnections.org and apply again and see if their list has been updated. You can inform them Yakima is a CEP district.

  • Sock-tober

    Posted by 5th grader, Antonio Castillo, NHE Student Council President on 10/29/2019

    Why a sock drive?  We all know how good a brand new pair of scoks feel, especially for those on their feet out in the cold.  Nob Hill Elementary School competed against Garfiend Elementary School to see who could bring in the most socks to donate to the Union Gospel Mission. Garfield Elementary School donated 1005 pair of scoks; while Nob Hill Elementary School brought in 1775 pair of socks. One 5th grade Nob Hill student said, "Not only is it fun to compete against another school, but it was also fun to compete agaist other classrooms in our school.  It feels good to give back to our community and more important to help one another out."

    Way to go Garfield Elementary and Nob Hill Elementary!
