Summer here we come!


Well, we have had a great 6th year of ROCK thanks to all of your hard work and dedication to ROCK. Thank you so much for being part of the ROCK team this year.

Pay Roll Cut Off - is tomorrow. Make sure to turn in your pay requests ASAP! Don't forget to include the extra hours that you will work for Early Release tomorrow.

Summer Staff schedule assignments will be sent out by Jeanette shortly. Be on the look out for this email.

Save the Dates: Please check the Upcoming Events section as I have added the August training dates. Plan your summer vacations accordingly!

Staff Updates:

Congratulations to our graduating seniors and ROCK Aides: Hillary Adams (Nebbie), Courtney Beaster (Springer), Tyler Ham (Pullen), Hannah Hohenberger (Stevenson), Danielle Kula (CLP), Ashleigh Letlow (Reinhardt), Clair Whelan (Reinhardt), Gabriela Vigueras (Amy Parks). We are so proud of you!

Two of our ROCK Teachers will not be returning next year. Gaby Yanez (Spanish teacher at Dobbs, Hays and Stevenson) and Denise Hoover (Art teacher at Springer). Thank you both for your service to ROCK. We will miss you.

Kylle and Keanne Esteban will be working Summer ROCK, but neither will be returning to ROCK for next school year as their college studies continue. Please wish these ROCK Instructional Assistants and brothers well on the future endeavors. You've been great role models for the young boys in ROCK.
