MRS. DETTMER'S NOTES

The time is here! It will be hard for me to sleep for the next few days. I am excited to see everyone, hear about summer stories, and start an amazing adventure! Our theme this year is Adventures in Learning. We will take many adventures with our learning. My hope is to also focus on different countries around the world as well as the many other adventures we will have.


I was fortunate this summer to have the amazing opportunity to travel to China and fulfill a dream of mine - teach in another country. I want to share these adventures with students and bring in other cultures from around the world.


I hope to see everyone at Open House on Tuesday, August 7th - 5:30pm - 6:30 pm.


Important Dates

August 7 - Open House - 5:30 - 6:30

August 8 - First Day of School

2018 - 19 Open House

You will find a "passport" in your child's classroom on Tuesday evening. This passport is for students to use as they meet their teacher, visit with related arts teachers, visit the Boosters table in the gym, parents can sign up for the Rockcreek Remind, and visit transportation. All completed cards can be turned into the library at the end of the evening. Winners will be drawn this week for a prize package! Let's start the adventure!

Bulldog Boosters

Please stop by the Boosters table in the gym to see the exciting opportunities you can help with this year! We will move Walk-a-thon to the fall this year. We have been fortunate to only have one fundraiser for the last two years. This is due to the generous support of our families. We not only need your support through fundraisers, but we also need your support through volunteering. Please let us know how you can help!
