Love your Passsengers!

One of our RCE Teachers, Mrs. Cheri Dickinson, unexpectedly lost her husband last year. She would like to celebrate his upcoming 40th birthday by encouraging people to do acts of kindness that include 40. Cheri has created the #404RobD along with a Facebook page for people to share what they did. This fits nicely into our Energy Bus Principle this month: Love Your Passengers.

At Rocky Creek, we will be hosting a Blood Drive on April 27th with the goal of collecting 40 pints of blood. Several of our grade levels, classrooms, and students have begun to participate, too. We invited all of our families to participate, too. Please share on Twitter by using the #404RobD, on the Facebook page #404Rob, or be sure your child tell their teacher. We want to make sure we know how all our Rangers are using "40" to Love Our Passengers through #404RobD.


Please make every effort to ensure your child's lunch fees are paid!

We appreciate you taking care of this!

Energy Bus Principle #6: Love Your Passengers

We will be sharing ways to be a powerful force of positive energy and share love with your passengers. The more love you put out, the more that comes back to you. Be Kind/Help Others/Make a Difference. When you show love and kindness, you attract it right back to yourself like a magnet. Love is something that needs to be nurtured. When you love someone you want the best for them. The motions for Principle 6 are brought to you by our fabulous 1st grade team!!
