Rolling Hills Elementary

Weekly Newsletter - December 20, 2019

Hello RHE families!

It is with great joy I send you season’s greetings. It was an exciting day filled with fun activities. We ended the day as group for a celebration activity and a whole school Sing Along. The staff ended the day with a great dance routine!

This has been a wonderful and exciting year so far at Rolling Hills Elementary. We are settled in our temporary home. Our students are working hard in their classes and enjoying the many activities we have had this year. Our teachers are dedicated to our students by finding new ways to make learning engaging and fun. The support from the Home and School Association and our many dedicated parents has never been stronger.

I feel privileged and honored to be able to work in this supportive and amazing community. I am grateful for your help, trust, input and desire to make Rolling Hills the best environment for our children.

We have many things to look forward to during 2020, but first, let’s enjoy this special time with family and friends. I sincerely wish you the healthiest and happiest New Year possible!
