conference week

Fall Conferencing Schedule October 9th – 20th

LVJUSD is holding goal-setting conferences in October.  The intent of our conferences has changed from a review of the report card to a collaborative meeting to discuss learning goals for the year.  Therefore, during the conference, we will review your child’s progress to date: assessments, observations, work habits, social behavior, etc., in order to establish learning goals for your child.  Your input in the following areas will be very helpful:

  • What does your child say about school?
  • What are your child’s special interests/out-of-school activities?
  • Does your child have regular responsibilities at home?
  • Do you have questions about your child’s performance in school?
  • Is there anything else we should be aware of?

Students dismissed at 1:30pm

Principal's Message

At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child's success is the positive involvement of parents.   --Jane D. Hull

The 2017-2018 school year is off to a roaring good start for the Croce Cheetahs!  Our Cheetah coalition has grown to over 700 students, including our Preschool “cubs”.  This means many new friends to meet and families to welcome into our community.  One of the best ways to get to know one another is to be involved in school.  Better yet, research clearly shows that students whose parents are involved in school perform much better on academic testing and performance. 

Here are three great ways to be involved this year:

Attend School Events/Parent Nights—Back to School Night on Thursday, August 31 is an important event.  This is your chance to meet your child’s teacher and learn key information for the coming year.  You, too, can share what your child’s needs and personalities are.  Throughout the year, we will have awards and spirit assemblies.  These will be on WEDNESDAYS this year.  If your child is receiving an award, you will be notified so you can attend and celebrate with us.  Goal-setting and Parent Conferences happen in October and March, respectively.  Other events will happen during the year, with Open House in May being the “Grand Finale” of the year.  Mark these events on your calendars and make it a priority to attend.

Get involved with the PTA—Croce is fortunate to have a lively and active PTA.  They provide many fun family events throughout the year, beginning with the Welcome Back Dinner and Games night on Aug. 25.  There are numerous dine-outs where you can help raise funds for PTA while enjoying a meal with other Croce families.  All throughout the year, PTA sponsors exciting events, such as the Fun Run, Halloween Carnival, Movie Nights, and more.  They also hold parent information events several times a year.  This is a great way to learn what is going on, and to have a voice in what we offer our students.  ALL of us are the PTA.  If you are a parent, grandparent, guardian, babysitter, or family member of a Croce student, I encourage you to join the PTA.  The $10 annual fee helps to provide support for our local PTA.  It also guarantees you will be notified of all PTA events.  Don’t miss out on the opportunities to get involved, and to have fun together.  For those who use social media, check out the PTA Facebook page and the Croce PTA App for information and updates.

Keep in touch- Throughout the year, keep in contact with your child’s teacher.  Each teacher has an email and voicemail that parents can use.  Many classrooms also have apps, newsletters, and other means of communicating key information.  Do you have a question or concern?  Contact the teacher.  With strong communication, your child will be more successful.  Also, check back on our school webpage regularly.  We will be highlighting learning and activities happening on our campus.

We had the BEST first day EVER on Monday, Aug. 21 with the solar eclipse.  Let’s continue to work together and make this the BEST YEAR EVER at Croce Elementary School!

With children in mind,

Kendra L. Helsley
