Weekly Note from Mrs. Clement

October 30, 2022

Dear Rocket Families,

We had a wonderful day last Friday with our Fall Festival and Costume Party Day! A HUGE THANK YOU to all the PTO Volunteers and our Travel Team Teachers for their help! Our students thoroughly enjoyed themselves!

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and we'd like to invite you to join your child for our Thanksgiving Day Meal prepared by our amazing school nutrition staff on Tuesday, November 8. The menu includes turkey with gravy, stuffing, green beans, sweet potato souffle, rolls, and cake! Adult meals are $3.00. As a reminder, no outside food is allowed on these days. If you did not receive a sign-up form on Friday one will be sent home on Monday. Please do complete the form so we know how many to prepare for on that day! Information is also included below this message.
