WELCOME MS. HENECKE
Dear Rockbrook Families,
We are pleased to share that Ms. Madeline Henecke will be joining Rockbrook and Prairie Lane as the music teacher for next year. Ms. Henecke comes to us from Enid, Oklahoma, previously though, working at St. Wenceslaus (Pk-4) and Skutt High School as a music teacher. We look forward to having Ms. Henecke join our school. We know she will continue to grow and foster our students’ love of music.
Summer Learning Opportunities
Throughout the school year, as part of Westside’s Multi-Tiered System of Supports (MTSS) process, students are assessed in reading and provided with strong instruction to support their needs. To engage families and extend the learning for students, we are sharing ways in which you can support your child with their reading. As we enter into summer, it is important to encourage practice in the area of reading so that students maintain the skills they learned this year.
This link: https://tinyurl.com/ue2tbc6v outlines opportunities to continue learning with and without technology. Included are links to various activities you can do with your child, as well as reading programs available in the community and some website/app recommendations. The top priority this summer is simply having your child read every day. This can include times when someone reads to or with them.
Elementary Music Celebration Concerts
Band and String Families, we are excited to announce our district-wide end of the year celebration concerts! Each performer may have 4 guests in attendance with them at these events! Info about safety requirements and practices will be sent home as the dates approach. Please add the appropriate date and time for your student to your family calendars and reserve the night for this event! We can not wait to gather together for a live performance to celebrate all that these students have accomplished as musicians throughout this unprecedented year!
Mrs. CJ, Mr. Freeman, Mrs. Matheson and Dr. Meints
