Message from Crocker Principal
Dear Viking Families,
As we move into the second half of trimester 3, our students have much on their minds. We have our California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) testing in May, the 6th Grade Yosemite trip, and end-of-year graduation activities in June.
During the days ahead, prepare your child for the final weeks of school. Reflect on what may help motivate your young adolescent to stay focused and have a positive end to the school year. Please encourage your child to move forward, work together to build a plan, and praise their efforts.
For these weeks, stick to the tried and true basics. Stability and structure are crucial; keep up with daily schedules and routines. Converse with your child about their friendships to support healthy peer relationships. Talk about their digital footprint and social media use. There is power in a reciprocal conversation with your child about how they interact with their friends and show kindness to their peers.
SAVE the Date 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.
