A Great Public Education Isn’t Free…It’s Up To Us!
Thanks to the dedication of parents, the greater community and our educators, Crocker Highlands is one of the best schools in Oakland. We are proud of the strong school that we, as a community, have built. In order to continue providing excellence for our children, we need your help.
Our PTA pays for music, physical education, library, computer instruction, supplemental math & reading, yard supervision & much, much more. The funds for these outstanding enrichment & academic programs come from you…our community.
There are many ways all of us can support Crocker. Below, you will find information about each of our fundraisers, as well as information regarding the simple ways you can help raise money for Crocker while simply doing things you already are doing.
Thank you for your support!

In calendar order, the fundraisers are:
Each school year, we ask all Crocker families for a direct donation. We ask for participation from every Crocker family. We know that some cannot give the suggested amount, while others can give more. Every donation, no matter the size, counts and makes a difference. Our goal is to get 100% participation this year! This is the fundraiser with the lowest overhead and the lowest volunteer requirement. Let’s make it our biggest contributing fundraiser. It is easy to set up a monthly installment contribution through this site that will automatically contribute a set amount each month through your credit card. We have a big push at the beginning of the year and when it is successful, it allows us to have fewer time-intensive fundraisers.

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

Our biggest fundraiser of the year is the annual Crocker Auction, where parents and staff bid on both silent and live auction items while having a great evening out. Questions or to get involved, please contact Elizabeth Karger at firstname.lastname@example.org
