As I write this, we have just completed our Kindergarten Registration Fair at the Robert Livermore Community Center. I’m pleased to say that we’ve enrolled some enthusiastic students and garnered more supportive Croce parents for 2014-2015! At present, whether or not Croce hosts a Transitional Kindergarten is still a “question mark”. The decision will be made after more enrollment information districtwide is known and analyzed. We look forward to meeting our new Kindergarten parents again at Croce in April for a Kindergarten Parent Evening.
The month of March brings with it our usual slate of exciting activities. We ushered in the month with a “guest appearance” in the Kindergarten rooms of the “Cat in the Hat” to celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss and Read Across America. The Cat’s reading to the classes of “Green Eggs and Ham “was followed, of course, by a late breakfast of ham and eggs. Other classes came to school in their pajamas to “get comfy” and read. We will continue our celebration of reading all month in our classroom and with other “special events” to focus our students on the joy of reading. I hope to see all of you at our March 6th PTA meeting and Read-a-thon kickoff. I know you’ll enjoy the presentation by the Livermore Public Library introducing their new book check-out and card system. At the same time, your children will begin logging in their reading hours and earning 10 cents for every hour read in “Book Fair Bucks”. Our top two readers and top pledge earners receive Book Fair certificates, and all students who reach grade-level reading goals participate in a PTA-sponsored pizza lunch. Thanks to our PTA for their support of reading at Croce. Remember—reading is the key to academic success for your children.
Other March events include Instructional Rounds for our teachers, Spring Conferences, Garden Day and end-of-the-month Spirit Assemblies. We will be having both an earthquake and a lockdown drill this month. Coffee With the Principal will be held on Friday, March 21.
This month Croce hosted a Math Night for parents. The idea was conceived and executed by Mrs. Angelo and supported by her fellow teachers. Please check out her article and the accompanying photos on our website. This was truly a great event and it is our intention to continue to host evenings for parents like this one. Of course, your attendance is critical to the “continuation” of these evenings. Please continue to make them a family priority.
My thanks to all of you for submitting the forms reflecting your family’s cultural/ethnic heritage. I am pleased to report that we have 50 different ethnicities represented in our Croce community. I am most appreciative as well to those of you who have offered to help support our year’s end cultural celebration. More news will be forthcoming.
Best wishes for a delightful spring!
