Mrs. Mata-Our New Principal!

I am beyond excited to be the new Principal of Crockett Elementary School!! This is a dream come true!! I look forward to working with our parents and community members as we come together for our amazing students at Crockett!!

A little about me- I started teaching 1st and 2nd grade almost 20 years ago! I was also a Special Education Teacher, Literacy Coach and Assistant Principal! I am a wife and mother! When I am not at school I enjoy: Reading, watching TV, crocheting and knitting! I also love baseball!! My favorite team is the Texas Rangers!!

I look forward to moving into this new role and promise that all decisions will be made with the kids best interest in mind! Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, suggestions or concerns! Please see my contact information below!! We're off on a great adventure!!

Let the Adventure Begin!!

ID Required

Parents any time you need to conduct business in our school you will be required to show your ID and state your reason for needing entrance into our building. This is a safety measure in order to monitor all visitors entering our building. Please help us by being prepared and having your ID ready when coming to the front door of the school. Thank you!


I cannot stress enough the importance of good attendance! Research shows there is a direct link to students with good attendance to high achievement! Simply, if your child is not in school he/she will not learn! Our campus/district goal is have our daily attendance rate at 94% or higher!

Here's our Attendance Rates from the last couple of weeks:

  • Mon 8/15 - 87.89%
  • Tue 8/16 - 89.91%
  • Wed 8/17 - 88.34%
  • Thur 8/18 - 91.03%
  • Fri 8/19 - 88.79%
  • Mon 8/22 - 92.17%
  • Tue 8/23 - 91.74%
  • Wed 8/24 - No School
  • Thur 8/25 - 92.19%
  • Fri 8/26 - 88.71%

As you can see we have work to do!! Help us achieve our daily goal!!

Attendance Challenges will begin September 1st!!

  • Students that have perfect attendance the first 15 days in September will receive a free dress day!! (Free Dress day will be Monday, Sept 19th)
  • If they have perfect attendance the entire month of September they will receive an Ice Cream Sundae!

This year this will include tardies and leaving early. If your child is tardy or leaves early he/she will NOT be in the running for the attendance incentive.

Unless your child sick please ensure he/she is in school EVERYDAY!!

Drop off and Pick up

Parents we are asking that you please be cautious and drive safely before and after school while dropping off and picking up your child. Specifically please follow all traffic rules when pulling in and out of our parking lot. Cars MUST turn RIGHT when pulling out of our parking lot! Also please do not drop off your child on Luna street and have them cross the street on their own. This is NOT safe and we do not want anything to happen to your child. WE DO NOT WANT A TRAGEDY SIMPLY BECAUSE YOU ARAE IN A HURRY! Please be patient, come through the roundabout to drop off your child safely. It will take about 5-7min to drop them off using our procedures. Thank you for helping keep our students safe!

Every Wednesday is College Shirt Spirit Day!! Your child is allowed to wear a College shirt on Wednesdays!
