Help Crocker By Filling out the Free Lunch Form

The school needs each family to complete the free/reduced lunch form and return to your students’ teacher. Please complete the form even if your family DOES NOT qualify for the free lunch program – please see the example of how to fill out the form with minimal information necessary (one submission per family). Alternatively, you can complete the form online.


Starting Tuesday, 9/6 (after the Monday holiday), 6th graders and parent volunteers will be assisting to allow for parents to drive up curbside to the school and have their child assisted by our wonderful volunteers to safely get out of the car, no searching for a parking spot required! Please get involved in the school — it takes us all to create the community we love about Crocker/Riverside.

Volunteers Needed

Sign ups for volunteers needed for the enrichment programs and community events will be at the Kinder Welcome Brunch and the first day of school coffee/volunteer fair. Please make sure to sign up for what you are able, and make special note that we are in need of a Spring Jubilee event chair and subchairs for donations, raffle events, volunteer coordination, logistics, auction database, marketing pieces, and dinner. As you likely know, the Spring Jubilee is our largest fundraiser of the year, and most of the programs paid for by the PTA rely upon the funds raised at this event…without the listed volunteers, the event is not possible. Please consider stepping into one of these needed Spring Jubilee positions, and contact email hidden; JavaScript is required for additional information and/or to sign up for the needed positions.
