Rockbrook Elementary School's Weekly Updates | 12/20/19
Happy Holidays and New Year
Rockbrook Winter Break Challenge, Reading and Math!
This Winter Break we want to encourage kids to keep their reading and math skills sharp. Keeping young minds active will prime them for a successful return in January, and can help get a fast start to the second half of our school year.
To do so, we’re excited to present a Winter Break Challenge for all of our students. From December 21st to January 5th we are encouraging students to spend twenty minutes a day focusing on reading and math skills. We'll be sending home a record sheet before the break where students can record minutes read. Students can practice their math skills using our online IXL.com resource. Students completing 200 minutes of reading or 200 minutes of math will receive a special incentive. Students completing both double up on their prize!
We hope your family will consider participating. Be sure to check your child's backpack next week!
Building Skills of Independence and Empowerment
As we head into the second half of the year, consider how you and your child can continue to grow in their skills. With the new year approaching it's a great time to set goals and work to accomplish them. Your child's teacher can also be a great partner in helping to determine how to best promote their success for the second half of the school year.
Know someone who is looking for part-time work and loves to work with children? We are looking for the next amazing Educational Assistant to work with the students at our school. If so we'd love to talk to them, 402.390.6475.

Dropping Off Your Child? Please Bring Them In & Sign Them In
Help us keep students and families safe. Please review the routes for parking and pickup using the full route. Cutting across the lot has created some recent close calls for both cars and students. These routines help keep everyone safe.
Medication at School
For you child’s safety and for the safety of others, all medication, even cough’s drops, must be kept locked in the health office, it must be in the original package. All medication, including cough drops, needs to be accompanied by a medication form signed by the parent or guardian, all prescription medication forms must be signed by the doctor.
