Jog-a-Thon – November 7

The 10th Annual Crocker Riverside Jog-a-thon is coming! This is a great activity for building school spirit, raising money for the school, and promoting health and fitness. This year, money raised will go towards Grade Level Enrichment. Teachers use this money for field trips, transportation to field trips, in class enrichment activities, experiencing cultural music and dance, creating books through the Young Author program, and much more. We need many volunteers to make this event a great success! Volunteering for this event is fun and really easy – you can work the whole day, or just come for an hour. Click here to volunteer! For more information about this fun event, click here.

FINAL WEEK! There are just a few days left in our fall PTA membership drive.

Membership costs just $5 per person — join by clicking here or picking up a membership form in the school office. Remember, PTA participation gives you an important voice in your child’s education!

Shortened Days in November
