The Crocker/Riverside Staff extends a warm welcome to all the students and their parents. Crocker/Riverside is a wonderful neighborhood school with a tradition of high student achievement, academic success for all students, and outstanding parent involvement. We believe in our students and their educational success is our focus.

CAASPP Testing
April 10-May 25


The state testing program, CAASPP, for students in grades 3rd – 6th will be April 10 – May 25. This is the time frame for the testing and classroom teachers will schedule their testing accordingly. The testing period can be an anxious time for students and teachers, and we make a concerted effort to minimize this anxiety. You can help your child by making sure that they are at school on time every day and schedule all appointments around the testing schedule.

Summer Reading Program


We work with the Sacramento Public Library to encourage kids to read over the summer.

According to recent research, kids who read at least five chapter books over the summer avoid the “summer slump” (the phenomenon through which students lose much of what they have learned over the previous school year).

We are encouraging Crocker students to read at least five (5) books between June 15 and August 31. Younger students should aim to read twenty (20) picture books.
