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.
PTA Membership – Join Now!
We are so close – fewer than 30 PTA memberships away from our 500-member goal! A huge THANK YOU to all who have joined so far. It’s not too late – just $5 per member gives you an important voice in your child’s education. Click here to join online, or pick up a membership form at the school office. Our fall membership drive is in high gear, with classes having the most members by Oct. 31 winning pizza, cupcake and cookie parties. So far, Mrs. Kruse’s 5th grade class leads the pack, but Mrs. Krahn, Mrs. Louie, Miss Sinistro/Mrs. Winquist, and Mrs. Goodwin’s classes aren’t far behind. Join us today!
Shortened Days in November
Wednesday, November 12 – Friday, November 14
Tuesday, November 18 – Friday, November 21
Parent/Teacher conferences are coming up and that means Shortened Days. The schedule is a little different this year so please note the dates and remember, no shortened Mondays in November.
Also, we are piloting a new program for 5th and 6th graders as an “extension” to the school day on the shortened schedule in November. The PTA is sponsoring two options in this program for the fall: cooking and science.

Join the Cubs Club!
We are introducing a new PTA program for our Crocker/Riverside families based on feedback you have provided.

Volunteer Spot – A New Way to Handle Sign-Ups
We are piloting a new program for PTA volunteer sign-ups this year. The hope is that this will make it easier for everyone – event organizers and parent volunteers. We’re using VolunteerSpot to organize our upcoming activities. Here’s how it works in 3 easy steps:
1) Click here to see our activity signups on VolunteerSpot.
2) Review the activities listed and choose the one(s) you like.
3) Sign up! It’s Easy — you will NOT need to register an account or keep a password on VolunteerSpot.
Note: VolunteerSpot does not share your email address with anyone. If you prefer not to use your email address, please contact the event chair and they can sign you up manually.
We are hoping to raise $8,500 this academic year, funds that can be directed wherever the needs are greatest. It’s a way for people to “write a check” that goes directly to supporting Crocker/Riverside’s teachers and students. We welcome everyone’s help in creating another successful year of PTA fundraising!
