Rockbrook Elementary School's Weekly Updates | 10-25-19
Fun and Friendly Costumes Please!
Halloween is coming soon. It’s time to think about your costumes. For our school parade and party please wear only fun and friendly costumes. Fun and friendly excludes blood, gore, scary/frightening masks or clothing, and weapons. If anyone has questions concerning the appropriateness of a costume, please contact the office. Thank you for keeping things on the fun and light side!
Note: Given limited time for changing, we encourage you to reserve makeup for your evening trick-or-treating.
Parade and Parties
Please do not have your child wear their costume to school. There will be time to change before the parade. The parade will begin at 2:30 in the hallway by the kindergarten rooms. It will progress into the west hallway and up to the lobby. Weather permitting, the students will go out the west doors, around the north side of the building and come back in the main entrance, then back down the east hallway. If it’s raining, the parade will go through the gym. Parties in the classroom will follow the parade.
Please remember to follow the District Approved Snack List. Linked is the lists of what to bring for parties or birthdays. Thanks for helping to make Rockbrook a caring community for all of our students. We hope you have a fun and safe Halloween!

LOGO DESIGN CONTEST
Rockbrook is ready to try something new! Bulldog Pump-Up is our own version of Fuel-Up to Play 60. Our goal is to keep kids active and healthy by moving and making good food choices. Throughout the year students will participate in a variety of activities such as GoNoodle, field day, and Try-a-Bite.
We invite you to participate in drawing a logo for use with all our Bulldog Pump-Up communication. From Oct. 25th through Nov. 1st we will be accepting logo entries and Student Council will pick the top 3. Then all Rockbrook students will vote on the winner.
Good luck and get drawing!
