Rocket Family Weekly Update - Week of October 23-27

Students had a great time during GAME DAY! Students earned GAME DAY by meeting our SCHOOL WIDE 1st 6 weeks Incentive! Classes receive ROCKETS during their travel to Specials (Art, Library, Music, P.E. & S.T.E.A.M.). Once a class earns 20 ROCKETS they submit them to the office for a STAR. Once the school reaches 30 STARS overall, we celebrate with a school wide reward. (Please note students who have received an office or bus referral may lose all or part of their privilege to participate in the 6 weeks incentive event.) The class with the most ROCKETS earns a pizza party. Congratulations to Ms. Horne's 3rd Grade Class for being our winner for the 1st 6 weeks! They will have their pizza party this Friday! If students meet the school wide goal for the 2nd 6 weeks we will celebrate with a DANCE PARTY!!!

Dear Rocket Families,

Please don't forget that tomorrow, Monday, October 23 is a Required Work Day for Staff. There is NO SCHOOL for students!

Thank you so much for the supporting our FALL BOOK FAIR. We had a great week!

As mentioned last week, we will hold our Fall Festival for students on Tuesday, October 31. Students will participate in activities in place of their daily specials classes. We will need LOTS of Rocket Family support to run stations throughout the day. PLEASE volunteer if your schedule allows. Please see the link below!

Students may dress up next Tuesday. Please ensure all costumes are appropriate and are without any face masks.

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.
