Teacher Appreciation Week
We need help keeping our parking lot safe for our children!
If you are reading this and are not the one who brings your child to school, please share this safety procedure with the driver who brings your child to school. We appreciate your cooperation with this as we always make safety our prority at Rocky Creek!
State Testing Week: SC READY and SC PASS
Students in grades 4 and 5 will continue to take SC READY and South Carolina Palmetto Assessment of State Standards (SCPASS) in science and social studies this week. It is very important for your students to be at school and on time because all test sessions are mandatory. Students who are absent or tardy on test days will have to make up the tests at a later date. As your child prepares to take SC READY and SCPASS tests, help us make your child feel confident and comfortable by making sure your child goes to bed early, gets a good night’s sleep, eats a good breakfast, and arrives at school on time.
Thank you for your support!
