The Last Few Weeks

Thank you to everyone for a great fourth quarter so far! It is flying by. Please remember the small things you can do to ensure a great end to our school year. Especially with all the packing that needs to be done this year, keeping routines familiar and classrooms structured will help students have a smooth end to the year. We have 13 days left! You've got this!

Rockwood Summer Workshops

Registration for Rockwood Summer Workshops begins Monday, May 9th at 12:00 a.m. You can view the course offerings and register here:
Rockwood Summer Workshops
Certified staff participating in summer workshops will be paid $16/hour.


In addition to summer workshops, there is also the two-day student engagement conference in June. There will be three strands of breakout sessions in the conference this year; assessment, social/emotional learning, and experiential learning. They are also bringing back the student panel and will build in time for job-alike collaboration with other teachers.

Packing Up Reminders

1) You are welcome to begin boxing items that you know will not be used for the remainder of the school year. There are plenty of boxes available, and you just need to let Dawn know when you are ready for them to be delivered to your classroom. Please put your name on the boxes, to help us keep everything together during movement.

2) It has been requested that any personal items in your classroom be boxed up and taken home during the summer construction.

3) Any boxes packed before the last day of school will need to remain in your classroom. There isn't any storage area available until school has been dismissed for the summer.

4) Wednesday night, May 25, 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!
