Principal's Message

February 28, 2018 will be a day no Croce student, staff member, or parent is likely to forget.  How often does a UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter land on your school’s soccer field?  Major Todd Bonner, Army National Guard and Croce dad, helped to make this day possible by securing the many permits and permissions to land the vehicle.  Major Bonner and his wonderful crew, CW2 Efren Enrille – Pilot, Staff Sergeant Julian Ross - crew chief, and Staff Sergeant Greg Proell – Paramedic, spent the entire day with us.  Each class, including the preschoolers on campus, had the chance to explore the inside of the helicopter and see the equipment used.  Students were amazed at the number of dials, knobs, and switches blanketing the panel and even the ceiling of the cockpit.  No wonder it takes more than 18 months in flight school to be ready to fly! Major Bonner presented at our awards assembly, illustrating how their team embodies the character trait of Caring.  With incredible photos of the crew fighting wildfires, conducting swift-water rescues, searching for lost hikers, and providing medical transport for troops and civilians overseas, it is clear they put caring for others above their own personal safety.  As one of our 4th graders said, “It takes such courage to put yourself in harms’ way to help someone else.”    It was exciting, and indeed an honor, to have this opportunity.   Thank you to our staff, families, and community for joining us for the occasion.  A very special thank you to Major Bonner and his crew.  DUST OFF!!!

Thank you to Bruce Anderson for the wonderful video below!


Our Croce PTA provides classroom supplies, technology needs, outdoor equipment, reading programs, library books, art programs and many fun and free activities for our students and families.  Our children’s classrooms and school cannot function successfully without the help of our Croce PTA and the many parents and teachers who volunteer their time.  In order to continue these great benefits to our students, we are in need of parent volunteers for our 2018-2019 PTA Board.  If you are interested in learning more about how you can help our school and your child, please send us an email at jvail@wakrauss.com.

(Open Positions for 2018-2019 are President, Treasurer, VP Events, VP Fundraising, VP Communications, VP Volunteers, and Historian)
