“Make Our Learning Stick”

Croskey Real Estate was happy to help Mrs. Holz’s 8th grade students at Hillview. Education is a major interest at Croskey Real Estate and we are always looking for ways to help our local schools.  We want to thank donorschoose.org for making this connection possible.

 

“Mathematics Modeling”

Croskey Real Estate was lucky enough to find Ms. Frugaletti’s math class.

 

“Imagine you are sitting in classroom listening to the teacher drone on and on about the seemingly pointless mathematical procedures you will be asked to demonstrate on the next test. Wouldn’t you want to know why you were learning it? Wouldn’t you want to know what this math was used for? Modeling the math through hands-on projects is a great way to inspire kids to explore mathematics. The seemingly pointless procedures become a clear pathway to reaching a specific end goal and achieving in real life situations. I am requesting graphing calculators, scissors, paper, colored pencils, and other classroom supplies to implement hands-on projects with my students. Having the supplies necessary to be able to conduct such projects in class will make the classes more interesting, thus motivating more students, and raise the achievement levels. Ideally, these projects will inspire students to continue their math education and enter careers in the math and science fields.” Ms. Frugaletti

Getting the band to London

in 2014 the Pittsburg High School Marching Show Band traveled to London to perform in the 2014 New Years Day Parade.  We were proud to sponsor the band in their trip.  Our family has a long history with the band. Wolfgang Croskey was drum major in 1998. He was present at the recognition ceremony to receive a thank you gift on behalf of Croskey Real Estate
