"You make the difference"
In an attempt to provide our Croce families with information about our new writing curriculum, the staff has written some brief monthly writing highlights. As you know, beginning last year, our Math curriculum has been refined and developed. Teacher-sponsored Parent Math Nights have provided you with information about the “multiple methods” approach to the Mathematics curriculum. Hopefully, your children continue to provide you with "Math News" via family conversations and homework discussions.
The information contained in our “Calkins Corner” is meant to give you additional insights on how our staff enhances writing instruction. We hope it will prove helpful. Your feedback is, as always, appreciated.
Please click on "Calkins Corner" to see the month of March in review.

Our State Testing is drawing to a close with the completion of Science testing for our 5th grade students on May 20th. We feel that the process went relatively smoothly at our site, with a 99% “test participation” rate and only a few minor technical glitches. I will survey individual teachers to get input to pass on to the district regarding time allotted, bandwidth access, etc. to help them in next year’s planning. We definitely profited from this opportunity to have a “no fault” opportunity to test. Thanks to all of you for getting your children here rested and ready to do their best!
As you can see from our “Calkins Corner”, teachers and students are still writing, writing, writing. I’ve been the recipient of wonderful letters across the grade levels on a variety of topics and have been invited to classrooms to see our Croce writers at work. We are delighted with their progress and hope you see evidence of their hard work in the samples they bring home.
We in the office are busily hosting new Kindergarten parents as they arrive for their Kindergarten Assessment interviews this week. We have four full Kindergarten classes and a TK program that is almost at capacity. As always, we’re excited to welcome over 120 new families to our Croce community.
June marks Diversity Week and we are delighted to announce some great presentations and performers for this year’s extravaganza. We will actually begin our week on May 29th, with our Spirit Assembly and two ethnic fashion shows. Last year we had thirty-nine participants and this year we have over fifty! I have added a separate schedule to this newsletter for your information regarding presenters, dates and times. We are especially pleased to have the Lion Dancers and “Cheza Nami” (African drumming and dance) for our all-school assemblies. Grade level presenters will represent Indian, African, Hawaiian, Chinese, Mexican and Native American cultures. As I write this, students at all grade levels are creating artwork representing over thirty different cultural art forms. Their work will be on display during Open House of May 21st and will remain up through June 5th.
Our annual Hoe Down will take place on June 10th and our students are excitedly practicing their square dance “moves” and readying their western wear. Of course, we will have as our honored guests our Rodeo Queen and our school namesake, Mr. Leo Croce.
It is definitely an understatement to say there is a lot going on! I hope to see you at these special events. Your support and participation means so much to your children. Don’t forget to check out our calendar of events listed above.
