Rockwood Summer Workshops
Certified staff participating in summer workshops will be paid $16/hour.

Last week, classroom teachers were given a book for summer reading focused on writing instruction. If any other teachers would like a book (there is one for primary and one for intermediate), just let me know.
No More "I'm Done!" - Primary book
The Writing Thief - Intermediate book

Mark your calendars for Thursday, July 14th at 8:30 a.m. for an optional breakfast and book talk at Maggie's Lunchbox. We will have everyone meet together for breakfast and then we can break off into our two separate groups. EVERYONE is invited whether you received a book yesterday or not, or whether your reading the book or not! :)

Packing Up Reminders

Wednesday night, May 25th, after Adventure Club leaves, and Thursday, May 26th, the custodial staff will start moving boxes to the cafeteria for summer storage. After teachers leave for the day on Thursday, they will come around to get the remaining boxes to move to the cafeteria for summer storage, move as much furniture to the inner classrooms on the lower level, and any remaining furniture to the cafeteria. We will mark off each classroom section in the storage areas, so everything stays together, whether it be in the cafeteria or in the inner rooms.

Please let us know if you have any questions!

The End of 2015-2016

As the school year comes to a close, I want to express my sincere gratitude to each and every one of you for a successful school year. Thank you for welcoming me into the Kellison community, helping me feel like I belong, and teaching me more than I could have ever imagined. I absolutely love this school, the staff, the students, and our families. While I know I've made mistakes this year and I have so much more to learn, I want each of you to know how committed I am to Kellison and doing my best each and every day for you. Enjoy your summer! You've earned it!
