Back to School Night

Dear Families,

I look forward to seeing everyone at our Back-to-School Nights on Tuesday, September 11 for our kindergarten families, and/or on Thursday, September 13, for grades 1st – 5th.  Because it is an adult-only event, childcare can be an issue.  Reach out to someone in the school community and either share and/or offer childcare if you already have a caregiver in place.   Back-to-School Night is the time for parents/guardians to find out what is happening in the classroom, and it’s important for everyone to be there.  You will hear about the classroom curriculum, projects, field trips, and the expectations for the year.  Teachers will share ways to best support your child at home.  It’s also a nice time to meet other families and to make those community connections.

All kindergarten families will meet in the Multi-Purpose Room on Tuesday evening at 6:30 p.m.  We will begin with all-school information and then all-kindergarten information.  Parents/guardians will then separate into classrooms for specific classroom/teacher information.

The schedule for Thursday’s presentations is as follows: 6:30 – 7:15 Primary Presentation (1st – 2nd) 7:15 – 7:45 Whole School Assembly – Squeeze in! (in the multi-purpose room) 7:45 – 8:30 Upper Grade Presentation (3rd – 5th)

Please respect the teachers’ time and agree to make this an informational, question and answer time about the content of the school year.  If you need to hold a conference about your child, please contact your child’s teacher via email, telephone message, or a note.

I hope to see everyone either on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m., or Thursday at 7:15 p.m.!

Coming to School

I need to remind families about some of our safety/traffic concerns –

1) We want to teach our children good habits, so please use the crosswalks.  There is a lot of jaywalking occurring as families come to school.  Safety first!

2) Traffic goes in a clockwise direction around the school.  Our PTA is trying to coordinate drop off zones, on Hubert and Midcrest but we need help.  If you are willing to volunteer some time, please contact Simon Becerra, simonbecerra@gmail.com, or Eric Trawick, kid_knowledge2000@yahoo.com.

3) Do not park in the red (leaving your car unattended) or block driveways.  We need to be a good neighbor.  Also, the police make an occasional drive through the neighborhood and will ticket for parking violations.

4) We have begun to issue our own “Crocker Parking Tickets” for those forgetting the laws.  An infraction constitutes one hour of community service at school.

5) Most people love dogs, but not everyone.  If you bring Rover to school with you to pick up your child, please wait across the street with him/her.  Some kids are afraid of dogs, and some are allergic to them.  With the excitement of over 400 kids exiting the building, it may overwhelm Rover and bring out unexpected behavior.  We need to be considerate of everyone.

6) Designate a meeting spot with your child so you can easily find him/her.  Pick-up spots must be outside, not in the library or in the courtyard.

7) Supervision on the playground begins at 8:30 a.m.  There is NO supervision on the playground before that time.  Please do not drop off your child without adult supervision.

8) If your child is on the yard after school unsupervised when I do my “sweep” at 3:05 p.m., I will bring him/her into the office to wait or to call home. If you notice a child who has not been picked up, please let me know.  I’m still learning the parent/caregiver/child match.

These general guidelines serve to keep our children safe.  I appreciate everyone’s cooperation.

Beth Rhine
