Principal's Message

A Year to Remember

The 2017-2018 school year is one none of us will ever forget.  Who else can say they saw a solar eclipse on the first day of school?  WE CAN!  Who can say they had an Army Blackhawk helicopter land on their field AND they got to sit in the cockpit?  WE CAN!  Who can say they had a Fun Run with giant inflatable arches that raised $20,000 for their school?  WE CAN!  Who can say they saw their teachers act and dance their way through the top movies of all time?  WE CAN!  These, and so many more, memories we take with us as this amazing year ends.  Memories of breakout challenges won, field trips to fascinating places, root beer floats in Science, time planting in the school garden, and getting to see construction crews building right before our eyes. 

Most of all, it is the people we will remember.  The new friends we made, and the old friends who remained.  Teachers who taught us.  Volunteers who helped us.  Staff who worked every day to make our school safe, clean, and healthy.  When you look back on this year, it is my hope that your happy memories far outweigh the sad.  When you remember your days at Croce School, may you always remember your Cheetah pride, and the words from our school song, “You’re our favorite school, with the purple and white, And you help us to learn and to grow…” 

And know this: your principal will always remember this year as one of the best school years EVER—because I got to share it with you!

Enjoy your summer time with family and friends.  Play, explore, relax, READ while you can.  August 20th will be here before we know it!


Our Croce PTA provides classroom supplies, technology needs, outdoor equipment, reading programs, library books, art programs and many fun and free activities for our students and families.  Our children’s classrooms and school cannot function successfully without the help of our Croce PTA and the many parents and teachers who volunteer their time.  In order to continue these great benefits to our students, we are in need of parent volunteers for our 2018-2019 PTA Board.  If you are interested in learning more about how you can help our school and your child, please send us an email at jvail@wakrauss.com.

(Open Positions for 2018-2019 are President, Treasurer, VP Events, VP Fundraising, VP Communications, VP Volunteers, and Historian)
