Bicycle Safety

  I’m The Principal
                     by Jordan Barloon
Today, Wednesday, January 18, 2017, I was Principal for the Day. I got a basket with treats, including my favorite: Gummy Worms! Mrs. Helsley and I walked around. We watched over the Preschool Parking Lot and said “Good Morning” to lots of people.    Then, Mr. Armando and I rode the golf cart around to lock up all the gates. Soon, it was time for a coffee break. I guess Principals need a lot of Starbucks! I did some paperwork and then it was time to visit classrooms. We visited the TK and Kindergarten students, including my class, Mrs. Coon’s.  Mrs. Helms and Mrs. Allen’s kids were playing for indoor rainy day recess.  I read with a friend in Mrs. Helms’ class. Then it was back to the office to check in with the office staff.

At lunchtime, I had Chicken Nuggets. Then I did some more paperwork. I went out to see the 5th graders in the cafeteria. I visited classrooms during rainy day recess to make sure everyone cleaned up on time. The 4th graders asked me lots of questions. Soon, it was almost time for the day to be over. I brought a treat to my friends in Mrs. Coon’s class.   Everyone said I did a good job. The best part of the day was using the walkie-talkie. I used it a lot!  When I grow up, I want to be an artist, but maybe being a principal would be fun, too.

Principal's Message:

Science is about knowing; engineering is about doing. --Henry Petroski

February is Science and Engineering Month.  Here at Croce, our students have been experiencing the joy and fascination of hands-on Science all year long.  We are fortunate to have two highly skilled and knowledgeable Elementary Science Specialists: Mrs. Pam Ferrucci and Dr. Gabriela Chirica.  They provide hands-on lab and demo lessons for students in weekly lessons, Grades 1-5.  Not to be left out of the fun, classroom teachers also provide Science lessons in the classrooms.  We have been increasing our students’ access to STEM learning.  STEM stands for “Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math”.  Some lessons are STEAM lessons, with the addition of an artistic component as part of the science.  These lessons focus on collaborative teamwork, and shared problem-solving in situations one might see in everyday life. 

February is also the month where we celebrate Science with the LVJUSD Science Odyssey.  Students in Grades K—12 in each of our District schools will be presenting their hypothesis and conclusions from individual and team projects.  There will be music and Science posters, and photography on display as well.  The event will be at Junction Avenue K-8 School on February 16, 2017, from 5-7 PM.   It is always impressive to see the creativity in their thinking and wonderings! 

Elementary-aged students are naturally curious about the world around them.  Just think how many times they’ve asked you “Why is…?” or “How come…?” or “What if…?”  That inquiry mindset is how they learn and grow within their daily environment.  Having conversations about what they see and wonder about are great ways to foster that inquisitiveness.  Scientists also realize that things do not always work out the way we expect them to.  Indeed, sometimes our greatest lessons come from those moments when nothing is working as we thought they would.  Being willing to take a risk, and to realize that mistakes are simply opportunities for learning, not failure, is an invaluable life skill.  Teachers work with students on these mindsets throughout the curriculum, but especially in Science.

For more opportunities for your budding scientist, please check our District’s webpage under Science and Engineering Events Calendar.

With children in mind,

Kendra L. Helsley

Campus safety

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.
