90th Anniversary Shirts on Sale Through November 22

90th Anniversary Shirts on Sale Through November 22

Swag black 2015              swag pink 2015

Back by popular demand, these are only available through this campaign. There are two adult-only sizes (unisex army green and black scoop neck tee for women) and three others (green, pink and dark blue) that can be purchased in both youth and adult sizes. Some feedback we received from the first run was that the kids’ sizes were on the small end, adult sizes were true-to-size…take that advice into account when ordering.  Click on this link to place your order:

As before, once the shirts are delivered, we’ll schedule time to distribute them on the Crocker playground. This should be ready before winter break. Buy these shirts for extended family members (they’d make a great grandparent gift). Proceeds will raise much needed funds for Crocker.

If you have any questions, feel free to email Amy Catalano at

Crocker Walkathon: 10/10

Crocker Walkathon: 10/10

The 23rd Annual Crocker Walkathon is coming on October 10th. There will be many opportunities to volunteer on the day of the event, and we also need a couple more key volunteer positions filled soon.

The Walkathon has been a part of the Crocker Highlands tradition for many years and it operates like a well-oiled machine with lots of documentation and guidance from years past at your fingertips, so you will not be ‘re-inventing the wheel’. If you feel at all moved to help out with this great event – Please, Please, Please don’t hesitate to lend us helping hand.

Gratefully, Carla Higgins and Andy Young, co-chairs

This year’s Walkathon is scheduled for Saturday, October 10, 9:30-3:00.

This major fundraiser is the first in the school year and really involves the efforts of all children, parents and our community. Each year the students collect pledges and walk a 0.4 mile course around the neighborhood near the school, earning prizes and a sense of pride as they rack up laps around the course.  The Walkathon is a fun and easy way for parents to get involved, volunteer and share in a sense of Crocker community.

Walkathon packets went home with your children on Thursday, September 10th and the deadline for turning in forms is September 24th. To get involved, contact Co-Chairs Carla Higgins and Andrew Young at and if you need replacement copies of those forms, you can download them here.

Respect – Our First Word of the Month Assembly

Respect – Our First Word of the Month Assembly

Respect assembly 2015This year, some enthusiastic parents have taken the creative helm for our Cougar Word-of-the-Month assemblies.  Host Harrison Pollack and the Crocker Cougar highlighted what some 5th graders said about how they show respect to their teachers and other students.  He also led the whole school in reciting a new chant he wrote.  Feel free to practice the chant at home!

Is it too much to expect,

That we use our intellect,

That we’re honest, and direct,

That we treat each other with respect?

Do you want to make a bet,

That you’ll make somebody fret,

If that person doesn’t get,

Treated with respect?

A ballerina does a pirouette,

And a pilot flies a jet,

Teachers like to correct,

Let’s treat them all with respect!

If you’re a giant, or a tiny speck,

If you’re wild, or if you’re a pet,

You should never, ever forget,

Everybody needs respect!
