MRS. DETTMER'S NOTES

First full week is complete. I am sure your kids are as tired as the adults! It has been a lot of fun to move from just reviewing expectations to "the work". Next week will be an exciting week at Rockcreek!


Thank you to The Landmark Farm Foundation for their generous support to begin a STEM Lab at Rockcreek Elementary. Through this grant we are able to have students complete projects varying in length from 3-4 weeks. Next week students will go to meet Mrs. Koester and begin going over expectations and learning to work together collaboratively.


We are looking for a few "trash" donations if you have any. Please read below for more information.

Trunk or Treat

I know October 19th seems like it is pretty far out, but we are looking for volunteers already! Please let us know if you are interested in having a trunk or volunteering in another way for a 30 min. shift. We are looking for volunteers with games, food, and as many trunks as we can get! This year our theme is camping or adventures! Let's be creative!
