ROCORI EQUITY ADVISORY CHAMBER (REACH)

A community equity advisory committee is being formed to provide diverse perspectives to school district leaders to assist ROCORI as we pursue our Vision 2025 goals of creating an inclusive, curious, balanced, connected, equitable, and progressive school district. The committee will be advisory only, but topics, suggestions, and concerns will be relayed to the various decision-making groups within the district. REACh will meet 2 to 3 times each year for 90 minutes. REACh members will choose a 2- or 3-year commitment upon application.

BARNES & NOBLE BOOK FAIR

We will be having a Barnes and Noble Bookfair on December 8th-12th. This is a great opportunity for folks who may be interested to purchase those materials, but will also help benefit Rocori Middle/High School. They work a little differently than a traditional bookfair. Nothing is done here at Rocori. It is all done online and in-store. Things that qualify for credit toward us are:

-Books

-Movies

-Music

-Educational toys and games

-Gifts

-Cafe Items

Basically anything EXCEPT purchasing gift cards qualify. I’ve attached 2 flyers…one for the online dates and one for the in-person dates. I also attached a pre-order sheet for their Café if you want to pre-order items for the holidays. Anything purchased on that qualifies us. You just need to tell them its for the Rocori Fair and give them the code below.

The only thing you need for instore and online when you checkout is the Bookfair ID: 12618112

HEALTH OFFICE INFORMATION

Update Vaccinations:

If you have had any new vaccinations since last school year, please send that information to Missy Boucher in the Health Office so we can update your student file.

If your student has received the COVID vaccine, and you are willing to share that information, you can send a picture of your vaccination card to Mrs. Boucher. This would assist us in effectively and efficiently contact tracing within our building. Sharing this information with our school health office would be voluntary.
