January 14, 2024
Dear Rocket Families,
I hope you are enjoying the holiday weekend! Remember that TOMORROW, MONDAY, JANUARY 15th is a HOLIDAY. There is NO SCHOOL for students or staff.
I wanted to share a couple of items with you:
- Please help our 5th grade raise funds for their end of the year trip! Last week, order forms were sent home for the "Bear-y Lovely Valentine Pre-Sale." Items are available for purchase for students at both a $5 and $10 price points. PLEASE NOTE this is an ALTERNATIVE to Valentine gifts at school as outside deliveries are not permitted. Order forms and money are due THIS Wednesday, January 17th.
- Rutherford County Schools recently adopted a calendar for the 2024-2025 school year. You can access it here - RCS Traditional Calendar 2024-2025. It is also below.
- KINDERPALOOZA is Tuesday, February 20. This is a fun event put on by Rutherford County Schools to get rising kindergarteners excited about starting school. Kinderpalooza will be from 4:00-7:00 at the Foundation at Isothermal Community College. Please help us spread the word!
- Carolina Photography will be at Rutherfordton Elementary School to photograph CLASS GROUP pictures on Friday, January 26. If you would like to order pictures, please return the order form that was sent home LAST WEEK and payment with your student on picture day.Or, for your convenience, you may prepay for the pictures by going to www.carolinaphoto.net. Click ‘Enter a SHOOT/JOB KEY” then enter JOB KEY C86Q55NR. The online prepay will be available until the end of business of the scheduled picture day.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org, by way of Class Dojo or by calling the school at (828) 287-3778.
