IndieFlix Trilogy Part 3

We would like to invite you to join us for our virtual screening of the film, The Upstanders, April 7th at 7pm. We have enjoyed seeing many of you at our first two screenings, Angst and Like and look forward to learning with you again in April.

The Upstanders: Building Resilience and Empathy to stand against Cyber-bullying

Thurs, Apr 7

7:00 PM

The Upstanders examines cyber-bullying from the perspectives of the bully, the victim and the onlooker, providing practical tips and resources to change the narrative – to stand up, speak out and support – and become an Upstander, not a Bystander

We will host a discussion following the film.

More Shining Comets!

This talented group of athletes won 3 out of their last 4 tournaments including our home RCYBA tournament and finished 5th place in state which is the HIGHEST any Rochester youth basketball team has placed in a long time!

Pictured here are Kellogg Comets Rihanna, Madison, Avery, and Isabella along with the rest of the team. Shout out to their coaches for leading this awesome group of ladies to such a great season!

I am sure by now you heard that the Rochester Raiders floor hockey team headed to the state tournament late last week. We wanted to give a special shout out to our very own Kellogg Comet, Eli, for his awesome participation on the team who because the STATE CONSELLATION CHAMPS! Congrats, Eli!

Mrs. Fox's class hosted Limb Lab last week and had an outstanding experience! You can see a few pics above but can access more pics and videos using this link.

Special shout out to our Comets for being so well-behaved and engaged during this visit! Limb Lab reached out to say how impressed they were, which means the world to us!

Thanks to Limb Lab for the partnership!
