Rockbrook Community Club - Your Help Needed!

Thanks to all who were able to join us for our first Community Club Meeting of the year. If you weren't able to join please know that you are always welcome and your input is appreciated. We are yet in need of a few key event coordinators and would appreciate your help whether willing to help on your own or as part of a partner or team. Please see our list below.


Event Coordinators Needed For:

Fall Festival - This is our Fun Fall Carnival. No date is yet set so we are open to options and ideas.


CARVED

We're looking for a lead Pumpkin Carver to represent Rockbrook at this fun fall event. We need one adult willing to carve a pumpkin for a contest that could earn the Community Club up to a $500 cash prize.


Grandfriends Day - April 24 - A fun concert and treats to share with our Grandfriends and Special Friends


Finally, if you'd like to review the minutes from the meeting, these are available on our Community Club website: http://rockbrookcommunityclub.membershiptoolkit.com. While you're there you can also review our proposed Bylaws update that was shared at the meeting.

New Community Club Website

This year the Rockbrook Community Club is pleased to announce the roll-out of a brand new website. This site will provide a one-stop-shop for volunteer and event sign-up, student directory, Community Club Minutes of Meeting and much more.

To get started it's important that you register for an account. Registration also allows you to select what information you wish to have included in the student directory. Click here to download instructions on how to register for your free account.

Finally, don't forget to download the Membership Toolkit App. This app gives you access to the site and student directory from your mobile device and makes it easy to keep in the know about upcoming Community Club events. (Please note, directory access requires approval by our web team to ensure all asking for access are current Rockbrook families.)

Gallup Night for 6th Grade Parents and Students

As you know, your sixth grade student had the opportunity to take the Gallup Strengths Explorer tool during first semester. You may have discussed their three strengths and heard about how they are learning more about these at school.


You and your child are invited to an interactive evening to further explore this tool and your child’s strengths. A Gallup representative will facilitate this event, and you will receive your child’s full report along with your Parent Playbook. You and your child can enjoy discussing the report together. If your child is unable to attend, you are welcome to come on your own.

The Gallup Parent/Child Nights will be held from 6:00 to 7:00 in the Westside Middle School cafeteria. Please contact your child’s school counselor if you have any questions. We hope to see you there!

Deliveries During the School Day

It happens to all of us. We forget something we needed for school or work at home. Fortunately, sometimes parents are able to drop items off for their child. To keep student focus on learning we would ask that such items be dropped off to the office. We are happy to deliver these to your child or have your child’s teacher pick them up at an appropriate time. Parents wishing to visit their child during the day are encouraged to do so at lunch. We are also always looking for volunteers willing to help out in our library, work on clerical tasks, or to volunteer for times arranged with their child’s teacher.

Don't Forget

Students will be dismissed every Wednesday at 3:00.

Please be prompt as teachers are scheduled to leave the building each week to participate in professional learning communities.

Welcome Mrs. Davis - School Psychologist

Hello! I’m Mrs. Davis, the School Psychologist at Rockbrook. This is my first year working at Westside Community Schools, but I bring many years of experience. I have worked in the mental health field for almost 30 years, which dates me. I know! This school year marks my 15th year as a School Psychologist. I am originally from Ohio; however, Omaha has been home for the majority of my life. My family and I recently moved into the district. My husband is a WCS graduate, and our three-year-old daughter will attend Loveland in just a couple of years. We are family-centered, and when not over our heads in home renovations, we also enjoy traveling and the outdoors. The Rockbrook community has been very welcoming to me. Thank You! I look forward to giving back by getting to know all of our students and working with staff and families in order to help all of our kids succeed. Stop and say hello. I would love to meet you!
