PTA End of Year Report

June 30th marked the end of the 2013-2014 PTA term and I would like to thank you, the families of the Crocker/Riverside PTA, for the generous contributions and hours of volunteer service you have given throughout this year. It is through your dedication and commitment to our students and school that we are able to provide the wide range of programs and support to our students, teachers, and staff. This year we logged over 7,500 volunteer hours! It is through this time spent together, volunteering, that we continue to build the unique community that we have at Crocker/Riverside. THANK YOU! The following is an end of year recap of some of the programs and equipment the PTA has been able to provide due to your generous support. At year-end, the PTA has successfully spent 92% of its budget, which means we reached our goal of spending the carryover inherited from the previous school year, while leaving a balanced carryover to kick start next year.

Summer Reading Program

Let’s keep our kids reading this summer! Click here for the recommended reading lists by grade level. Students are encouraged to “pledge to read” this summer by returning a signed pledge form to the office before the end of school. Next fall, the class with the most summer readers will get a special reward (and everyone who reads will get a prize).

Back-to-School Tips from CA PTA

Well-informed, engaged parents make a vital difference in helping students and schools succeed. When families, schools and communities work as partners, student achievement is boosted and children are better prepared to lead happy and productive lives.

PTA connects families and schools, and one of the best things about a new school year is the opportunity to be involved in helping your child, your school, and your community. Click here for tips parents need to know.

This is a great option for those who would rather not participate in the event-based fundraisers throughout the year but would still like to support the school.

Common Core Standards

New English/Language Arts (ELA) and Math content standards called the “Common Core” are coming that will change what your child learns and how they learn it. Click here for more info. You can also attend a workshop to learn more.

Accelerated Reader Program

We hope that our new Accelerated Reader Program for second-sixth grades is encouraging your child to become even more of a voracious reader.  We have sent home information for parents that will help clarify the program, and provide guidance for accessing books at your child’s reading level as determined by the diagnostic test from Accelerated Reader.
