Weekly Note from Mrs. Clement

October 23, 2022

Dear Rocket Families,

We had a great turn-out for our first PTO Movie Night on Friday. THANK YOU to all who came! We hope to host several more this year so stay tuned!

We will have our in-house Fall Festival for students ONLY this Friday, October 28. Flyers for donations were sent home this past Friday. Thanks to the many parents who have coordinated with Ms. Steiner to volunteer! We are very appreciative!!!

Students may wear their costumes on Friday. NO MASKS! Please be mindful that students will be "active" with festival games and they should wear something that allows them to participate and not get too hot.

Upcoming Important Dates Listed Below:

  • Friday, October 28 - Fall Festival for Students -this will occur during our school day for students ONLY

  • Tuesday, November 1 - Make-Up Picture Day

  • Friday, November 4 - End of 2nd 6 Weeks

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.
