Rocket Family Update - Week of November 1-5

Weekly Note from Mrs. Clement

October 31, 2021

Dear Rocket Families,

We had an INCREDIBLY FUN day at Rutherfordton Elementary this past Friday with our in-house fall festival! A very special THANK YOU to PTO President, Jessica Steiner, and those who volunteered their time so the day could take place. I'd also like to give a huge shout-out to our staff for making last week extra special for our students. We are so very lucky to have such incredible support and for that we are very thankful!

If you'd like to volunteer at Rutherfordton Elementary to help with future events, class parties, field trips etc. please ensure you complete and submit a volunteer form (linked below). We do have to have these completed yearly and if you go ahead and submit one that will help us get you approved ahead of time.

Our day for make-up pictures is this Tuesday. If your child was absent for our fall pictures they will have an opportunity to have their picture made. More information will be shared by Dojo tomorrow.

Just a reminder that Thursday, November 11th is a holiday to celebrate Veteran's Day.

Finally, ALL morning car riders must WAIT for a staff member to help them from vehicles in the morning car line. If you arrive late and our tardy sign is out an ADULT must walk students in the school to check the student in with our system.

As always, please feel free to reach out to me anytime should you have any questions, concerns and/or suggestions. I may be reached at, by way of Class Dojo or by calling the school at (828) 287-3778.
