Welcome to Crocker Farm School!
Crocker Farm is a wonderful place to learn and grow. The themes of our school can be characterized by Achievement, Diversity, and Community.
We are fortunate to be located in an outstanding physical structure in a beautiful location. Our school was a recipient of a School Building Design Award in 2006, given from the Massachusetts School Building Authority to buildings that utilize successful approaches and design elements which can serve as models for the best school design of the future. We have a new playground (built in 2010) as well as a large field that is perfect for soccer and other outdoor games. In addition, there is a trail at the back of the school that extends to Mount Norwottuck and Mount Holyoke Range State Park.
We celebrate achievement in all academic areas, as well as aesthetics. As you walk around Crocker Farm, you will notice the beautiful artwork from our sixth grade art award winners of recent years. Our students are also honored for their academic achievements, such as earning high marks on the New England Math League Contest and the National Geography Bee. We have a talented and hard-working staff of educators who are passionate about the achievement of our students.
We celebrate diversity with a curricular focus on social justice and culturally responsive instructional practices. We build a wonderful sense of community through whole school events, such as our school-wide celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King in January, our musical production in the spring, and assemblies throughout the year.
We are fortunate to have an active Parent Guardian Organization, who supports teachers and students by running programs such as the Summer Read-A-Thon, organizes events such as the One World Festival, and contributes to the connectedness that Crocker Farm students and families feel towards one another. As you explore the various parts of our website, you will find practical information such as lunch menus and calendars, read our handbook to find important information spanning a wide number of topics, and also a link to the PGO’s blog, which you can scan for upcoming events during the school year. This is also a link to our newsletter, the Crocker Chronicles. You will discover that Crocker Farm is an exciting place to be!
