1:30-‐4:00pm GRAND OPENING for Students

All students are dismissed at 1:30pm during conferences.
LVJUSD is holding goal-setting conferences in October. The intent of the conference is to have a collaborative meeting to discuss learning goals for the year. During the conference, the teacher will review your child’s progress to date: assessments, observations, work habits, social behavior, etc., in order to establish learning goals for your child.
"Respect" was the theme of our September 30th Spirit Assembly
“These Cheetahs Read Year Round!"

To help ensure our students’ safety, all exterior gates are closed during school hours. Once the day has begun, all visitors need to enter campus through the front office. Gates will be opened again just prior to dismissal times. Please help us by keeping gates closed.
Parking lot/drop off—a reminder that the back parking circle is for PRESCHOOL DROP-OFF ONLY. This area must be kept clear for the bus and parent traffic at both arrival and dismissal times. All TK-5 students must be dropped off in the front parking areas. Remember, we have valet parking to assist students out of cars near the Kindergarten area. TK/K students are escorted to their play areas from valet. Please use the appropriate drop-off areas to keep our students safe.
Thank you for helping to protect our students and minimizing disruption by following these procedures.
Welcome back to another exciting and eventful year at Croce Elementary. I am eager to get back to the business of teaching and learning. Teachers are already streaming back from summer, anxious to set up classrooms, prepare lessons, and implement new curriculum to support every child’s learning. Our amazing PTA has already begun planning events and activities to enrich our students’ experience. It is our common goal--staff and parents--to see every child have their best year yet. To help get the year off to the right start, remember these three Cs: consistency, communication, and commitment.
It is our goal to see every child have their best year yet. To help get the year off to the right start, remember these three Cs: consistency, communication, and commitment
CONSISTENCY—Structure and routines are helpful to all children. Establish a routine for homework, a designated time and place each day and a set location for materials and backpacks to make sure the homework comes back! Having a regular bedtime helps students to perform at their best. Elementary School students need 9-10 hours a night to develop fully. Finally, regular school attendance is vital to a child’s learning. Please have them in school, on time, everyday unless they are ill.
COMMUNICATION—Regular communication with the school is essential. Make time to attend Back to School Night for important general information for the year. Croce teachers all have direct voicemail and email, and will respond to your requests. It is important to let the teachers know sooner, rather than later, if your child is having difficulty with their subjects, their social skills, or any concerns they’re expressing to you. Know that as principal, I am available to assist as well. When we know the needs, we are better able to help. If the school needs to contact you regarding your child, we appreciate having your most current phone, email, and address information. Please remember to keep that updated as we go through the year.
COMMITMENT—We are making a commitment to you to do our very best job in serving your children. We ask that you commit to being positive and supportive of the school. Get involved. Join the PTA, sign up to assist in your child’s classroom, or agree to occasionally take home a project to help the teacher. Attend school events, come by and visit the classroom, or help to support fundraisers. Join one of the school’s committees. Any way you participate, either big or small, has been demonstrated to have a direct and positive impact on your child’s success in school. We are so fortunate to have a dedicated and energetic group of parents; together, we can make this another great year here at Croce School!
With children in mind,
Kendra L. Helsley
