Message from Crocker Principal
Dear Crocker Vikings,
A fond farewell to our wonderful community! Thank you all for supporting Dave and me and your sustaining dedication to our educators. The rewards of school leadership are strengthened, cultivated, and nurtured by the students, families, and educators we serve and collaborate with each day. I will forever be grateful for the Hillsborough City School District and the Crocker Community. It has been a pleasure to lead and support your children during these past three years.
I retire with a full heart, knowing that our community is stronger than ever. I appreciate knowing our community will welcome our new site leadership with open arms and wrap them in the same positivity and support I received when joining this caring community.
Wishing you a wonderful summer,
Message from Crocker Parent Group President
It's a wrap!
Thank you to the Crocker educators who taught, inspired, and engaged our tweens and teens all year. It was a challenging and exhausting year, and I hope you all enjoy a well-deserved summer break.
A special thank you to Principal Maria Brady and Assistant Principal Dave Miller. Wishing you both the best of luck as you move on in your life and career; Crocker will miss you.
Thank you to my Parent Group Executive Board and the event Chairs- every event on our calendar happened this year! It took long hours, many communications, and lots of flexibility, but the record turnouts and face-to-face greetings made it all worthwhile.
Personally, this year was a "swan song" for me as my youngest son is graduating. Serving as President was a privilege, as I worked alongside many fabulous leaders. I relish the relationships I built, the skills I learned, and the joy I witnessed at Crocker. We have a wonderful community, and Crocker is well-positioned to deliver continued excellence in the coming years.
Have a wonderful summer break.
Crocker Parent Group President

Crocker Class of 2022 Graduation
Wiliam H. Crocker's 8th Grade Graduation will be held on Thursday evening this year! Due to the Performing Arts Center availability, we had to pivot and plan for a Thursday night ceremony. Always determined to see the glass half full, we are excited for an opportunity to try a new tradition! The Crocker Vikings Class of 2022 Graduation will be held from 5:00 pm -6:15 pm on Thursday, June 9, 2022. Doors will open at 4:30 pm. The venue is large enough that we will not need to limit seating.
