MRS. DETTMER'S NOTES

We are so excited to have everyone back on Monday to begin the 2nd semester. This is the time where we are beginning to review all of the standards addressed the first quarter, push to achieve higher levels, and make sure we are ready to go for the next grade level. It is hard to believe 2nd semester is already here!!


Good luck to our basketball teams and cheerleaders this week. The boys and girls will play Smith Elementary at Southside on Monday at 5:30. If they win they will move on to play Southside on Wednesday, January 9th. Cheerleaders will be in competition on Saturday, January 12th, 1:00 pm. at Columbus East. Please plan to come and show them support as well.

Weather and E-Learning

Please make sure you are enrolled in the BCSC alerts as well as the Rockcreek Remind. Both systems will be utilized if we were to have a cancellation or delay. We will utilize E-learning days if we have a total of 5 snow days. We have currently only used 1 snow day.


E-Learning days - If we think it will be a possibility of an E-Learning day we will send chromebooks home with any students with signed permission. (This was sent home at the beginning of the school year.) If we are caught by surprise (flood days last year) we will have the building open by 9 am to allow access to pick up the device and charger. All work can be completed after snow days as well. Students will have a total of 3 days after the E-Learning day to complete the assignments. Let's hope the warm weather continues!

Staff Spotlight

We are focusing on some of our support staff members this week. We will continue with our bus drivers, cafeteria staff, custodians, and finish up with everyone else that works at Rockcreek with our students!

We want to bring home the TROPHY!

How can you help Rockcreek? - Coca-Cola and Office Depot

Dear Parents,

We’re excited to share that our school is part of the Coca-Cola Give program. This opens up Rockcreek to new funding opportunities to help improve learning environments for students.

The best part? Donations don’t come out of your own pocket. When you make Coca-Cola purchases, you simply enter the product codes here: https://us.coca-cola.com/give/schools/ and our school receives a donation.

Help Rockcreek make the most of this program and learn more at Coke.com/give.
