Odds and Ends


  • Next week your students will be bringing in old t-shirts for an upcycling project that will take place on the October Early Release Day. The bags can be sent to Jan Araniecke's room on Friday, October 2nd.


  • FIELD TRIPS: There is a slight change in the way parents give permission for their students to attend field trips. We can no longer use a blanket permission forms that parents used to complete at the beginning of the year. Parents will have to give permission for each field trip. After you submit your field trip request form to Becky, she will create the permission form for you, make copies, and place them in your mailbox. Once a student returns their permission form please keep it in a file in your room for future reference, if needed.


  • Bully Prevention Week - Here are our Theme Days for the week.
  • Monday: I mustache you to stop bullying and be lifesaver. Kids will receive a Lifesaver and should wear a mustache and a blue shirt.
  • Tuesday: Students should dress wacky tacky (mismatch) to show it is okay to be different;
  • Wednesday: Students will receive a Take a Stand, Lend a Hand; Stop Bullying pencil. Students should have crazy hair, to show who you really are.

  • Thursday: Students will receive a Take a Stand, Lend a Hand; Stop Bullying sticker. Students should dress from the 60’, 70’, or 80’s because it doesn’t matter how old you are or where you’re from everybody deserves to be treated with kindness.

  • Friday: Students will receive Take a Stand, Lend a Hand; Stop Bullying bookmark. Students should wear sports team apparel because sports teams are like families and families support each other.


  • SPIRIT Meetings: Our first SPIRIT meetings for this school year are scheduled for Monday, October 12th in the office conference room. RI, SSD, Tina Kilpatrick, and administration will be at each meeting to participate in the discussion regarding each student. All SPIRIT referrals should be turned in to Kim Harrick by Thursday, October 8th. Our goal is to send out a schedule for the meetings on Friday morning, October 9th. The forms can be found in the RTI forms and protocol folder that was shared with you through Google Drive.


  • Book Donations Needed: Book Donations Needed! Please support the Rockwood Summit Silver Falcon Marching Band by dropping of books in the rotunda at Uthoff Valley during the month of October. All books will be available for sale during the Summit Craft Fair later this fall!
