Our 2013-2014 academic year has officially ended and our school office officially closed its doors on June 20th. We will reopen on August 4th, ready to begin another exciting school year. The year will officially begin with Packet Day on August 18th from 9:30am to 12:30pm and 6:00pm to 7:00pm. You will receive a “Snapcode” the week of August 4th, enabling you to complete or verify your online registration information. If you need help, please remember that we have computers available at the school site for your use. Remember to bring emergency contact information, doctor contact information, etc. with you. The process of pre-filling out and verifying your information will make Packet Day a quick “in and out” for you. You will also have the opportunity to purchase Crocewear, make a donation to offset or cover the cost of your child’s workbooks and planner and receive your child’s classroom assignment. Additional information about Packet Day will be e-mailed to all of you the week of August 4th.
We have experienced minimal staffing changes for the coming academic year. Our biggest announcement is the addition of a Transitional Kindergarten class to Croce. Mrs. Woods, our former first grade staff member will be moving to room 33 to “open” the new class. Ms. Halim, also a first grade teacher at our site, is moving to third grade to take the spot vacated by Mrs. Lewis. Our new first grade “additions” are Mrs. Claudia Barry and Mrs. Barbara Rogers. Mrs. Barry spent the 2013-2014 year as our 4/5 SDC teacher. She has a long history with Croce and we are thrilled to have her as a permanent member of the team. Barbara Rogers has been a member of our SDC Pre School staff. She too has a history with our school community, spending several years at Christensen before moving out of the area for several years. Both teachers have strong elementary backgrounds and I am delighted to have them join us. Regretfully, our 2/3 SDC class has been moved from Croce and, as a result, Mrs. Howard and her aide Holly Nordvik, have moved to a K/1 SDC class at Rancho Elementary. We will truly miss this wonderful “team”. We are, however, fortunate to continue our 4/5 SDC program at Croce and have the pleasure of welcoming Adrianna Schultz as our Special Day Class teacher. Adrianna comes to us from Sunset Elementary and brings strong special education skills and experience to the program. We will truly miss Mrs. Howard and Mrs. Lewis (who is embarking on a job-share situation at Arroyo Seco). Both are great and contributing staff members and skilled teachers. We wish them well in their new assignments and remind them that they will always be Cheetahs!
I hope you share my thoughts about the conclusion of a very successful and productive school year. Your children worked hard and have much to show in the way of academic and social growth. Our culminating activities and events of Croce’s Diversity Week have left me with images of an art-filled patio decorated with lanterns, kites and windsocks, a multipurpose room festooned with the flags of many nations and music, dance drumming. The general feeling is one of pride and satisfaction in our students and school staff. Thanks to all of you for supporting us and your children in their pursuit of excellence.
My best wishes for a fun-filled and carefree summer. Our teaching and office staff are taking a well-deserved rest as well, although Croce is always in our minds and hearts.
