The Rocket Report Family Edition

August 22, 2022

Greetings Rainwater Families!

We have been having some amazing days here at Rainwater. We continue to enroll new students and meet new families!

Tardies have been greatly reduced since last year. Please plan on being at the school by 7:30 so that your child is in his/her seat by 7:40. 7:40 is the actual tardy time which means a child should be seated in class at that time. We release kids from the cafeteria at 7:30 so children can get to class, get unpacked and settled, and be ready for learning right at 7:40. Let's see if we can have 100% of the classes have ZERO tardies this week!

We are looking forward to having a marvelous week with lower temperatures!

With kindest regards,

Ms. Nicole Greenleaf

Lunches with Parents


We know you are excited to enjoy lunch with your kids, and we love to share lunch with you. We will begin Student Lunch with Parents on Friday, September 2nd. The first few weeks of school we use that time to solidify our procedures, help students (especially our youngest) learn the routines of the cafeteria, and allow students time to form friendships and visit.

Thank you for understanding. From September 2nd forward, parents are invited to the cafeteria to lunch with their children each Friday.

Canned Fruit Drive

Support one of our most valued community partners in September, Metrocrest Services, by donating canned fruit at the annual Rainwater Elementary fall canned food drive. Bring donations of canned fruit to school September 6th - 16th. Students can place the donations directly into the food drive boxes during that timeframe.

Also during the month of September, students will focus in on what makes each of special and unique. We will dive into diversity and inclusion by making new friends and learning to accept others and embracing each other's differences.

I look forward to partnering with you in supporting our students as they rocket into their best school year yet!
