SHADES OF GREEN – Fall 2012
After School Programs Committee
Helps bring fee-based before and after school activities to the students at the school. Scholarships are available for every class. Examples of activities include Chess Club and Drama.
Book Fair Committee
Held in the fall and is a fundraiser for the Arthurine Crosse Library. You can shop for holiday gifts at this event and provide for a better school library at the same time. Students also get to hear from a real live children’s book author.
In May, on a Saturday, we host a simple but fun family Carnival. There are carnival games, prizes and a café; the kids love this one! Each class is responsible for one booth. Everyone is welcomed, including siblings, friends and neighbors.
Educating parents on policy issues as they relate to children and education is the job of the Children’s’ Advocacy group.
The Craft Fair is a lab for capitalism at its best. Students make and sell their own wares on a Saturday before the holiday season and keep their earnings.
Need that phone number, e-mail or mailing address of someone in your child’s class? The Directory is your source for contact information for all students at Crocker Highlands.
Health and Safety Committee
Our Health and Safety team shares information concerning creating the health and wellness of our children.
Our Hospitality team is always filling a back table with goodies for our PTA’s General Association meetings. They also coordinate monthly Teacher Appreciation Lunches.
New Parent Outreach
Our New Parent Outreach committee runs several information sessions a year to help show our school to prospective parents. It also facilitates the Buddy Program, which hooks up new parents with seasoned families for a more confident start at Crocker.
Community Service Day Committee
Organizes a Service Day during the year .
Room Parents Coordinator
Makes sure each class has at least one Room parent (preferably two) and one Treasurer.
Whenever a program needs a hand, our Volunteer Coordinator puts out the call to deliver the bodies to complete a task.
Our website contains most of the information and links to navigate most of what happens at school. We are always looking for more volunteers to help manage and deliver excellent content.
The PTA maintains a Wish List for various items that teachers and staff may want for their classroom or the school.
