Weekly Note from Mrs. Clement

January 22, 2023

Dear Rocket Families,

I hope you all enjoyed the weekend! Here are a few key items for this week:

  • On Tuesday, we celebrate the 100th Day of School! We hope to celebrate this day by inviting students to dress as if they are 100 years old!

  • On Thursday, Jaxon Appling - 4th Grade, will represent Rutherfordton Elementary at the Rutherford County Schools Spelling Bee. Good Luck, Jaxon!!!!!!!

  • As a reminder, Carolina Photography will be at Rutherfordton Elementary School to photograph CLASS GROUP pictures this Friday, January 27. If you would like to order pictures, please return the order form that will be 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 Click ‘Enter a SHOOT/JOB KEY” then enter JOB KEY D34YVC5D. The online prepay will be available until the end of business of the scheduled picture day.

  • Please help us spread the word for KINDERPALOOZA which is Tuesday, February 21. 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.

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.
