  • Troy Craughwell was such a great elementry school! I am now in 6th grade at William B. Orenic and i cried a ton the days I left! At Craughwell there is a lady called the bug smasher and you go to her when you have problems. She is our school counselor but she is so great and really my role model. All the teachers and students are all so nice here. If however you think you do have a mean teacher, really you don't! The only reason they are hard on you is because they want you to be the best student you can be! The three rules there are BE
    respectful Be responsible and Be peaceful, as troy students know them as the three bee's! Also what is so cool every Friday morning, a student gets to play a song that has a message in it! Going to troy craughwell was an amazing experience that i will NEVER forget!
