FOUR SCOOPS!

SCOOP ONE

On Monday and Tuesday during advisory, 6th and 7th grade students will be learning about Kellogg’s honors classes and how to register for them for the upcoming school year. If your child is in need of increased challenge and rigor, consider signing up! We offer honors classes in English, science, and social studies. Here is a Google Slide presentation which includes information and the link to register: Registering for Middle School Honors Classes. Here is a direct link to the registration form: Kellogg Honors Classes Registration Form. The registration deadline is Thursday, March 25. Questions? Please contact Sarah Michet, Kellogg Gifted Specialist at samichet@rochesterschools.org.


SCOOP TWO

While we know school supplies can be hard to come by this time of year, we wanted to remind you of the school supply lists and highlight the most important pieces. To help mitigate risk, it would be ideal for students to bring many of their own supplies to class each day. This will minimize sharing of classroom supplies.

ALL GRADES (unless otherwise noted)

  • Notebooks & Folders (ideally one set per class)

  • Scissors

  • Calculator (scientific in grades 7-8)

  • Color Pencils

  • Pencils

  • Glue Stick

  • Kleenex (give to Target teacher)


SCOOP THREE

Bus routing is complete. If your child is scheduled to take the bus beginning April5, you should receive information from Transportation Dept this week!


SCOOP FOUR

Our plans are coming together for March 23.

In-person 6th graders and new-to-Kellogg in-person 7th & 8th graders will be invited to spend the day at Kellogg Tuesday, Marsh 23. Bussing (for eligible riders) and lunch will be provided. Students will spend time getting connected with their Advisory group and learning Kellogg routines, including walking through a mock schedule.

Watch for more information to come from your child's counselor.

Family Mental Health Sessions

Our March Family Mental Health Session, "Mindfulness During Challenging Times," will take place Thursday March 25 at 6:00pm. Use this link to join us! https://meet.google.com/kce-rqqd-ofs I will text a reminder & the link that evening! See the flyer below the February resources!

Student Mental Health Resource

Rochester Public Schools recognizes that we are all experiencing increased stress and worry during this time. In response, RPS is now partnering with community agencies to provide free virtual consultations to help address worries you might have about your child's mental wellness. These sessions will typically be with a community provider, not with an RPS staff member. Visit https://rochestermnschedule.as.me/ to schedule a 45 minute appointment with a trained mental health provider to discuss your concerns. These consultations can help you clarify what help your child might need and think about next steps. The mental health provider you meet with can connect you with resources for help. What is discussed during the consultation is confidential.
