A Great Public Education Isn’t Free… It’s Up to Us!
What is Annual Giving? Basically it’s the easiest way to help the PTA raise the funds needed to make Crocker Highlands one of the best elementary schools in Oakland. We support programs that are not covered by state or federal funding.
This academic year, the Crocker PTA will spend approximately $1,000 per child.
Where does your money go? Programs include:
- Small Group Activity Leaders – Teachers cannot do it alone! Bringing additional attention to enhance learning.
- Vocal Music – the best holiday concerts around!
- Physical Activity – moving our bodies helps our brain and contributes to well-being.
- Library – Lisa Hobbs (our librarian) is a gift to helping our children learn to love reading.
- Technology – computer instruction, replacement, repair and more!
- Supplemental math & reading – giving extra attention for struggling kids and acceleration
- Community-building events – Dad’s club, Spaghetti Feed, Mosaic Night and lots more
Donations in any amount are welcome from anyone – including relatives and friends. You don’t need to give $1,000 to make a difference! All donations help and are much appreciated. We are hoping to reach 100% family participation, so please give what you can.
