Report Cards

You should see report cards come home tomorrow. Honor Roll and Principal's Honors are indicated by a sticker at the top.

Grades are complete on PowerSchool - you can get a sneak peek today if you want!

PowerSchool Login

PowerSchool has again thrown us a curve ball :) Please check PowerSchool online for comments from your child's teacher and also for your child's Genius Hour grade.

There is a Citizenship Honor Roll for grades K-2. If students receive an O in citizenship for all of their subjects (including specials) they will be on the Citizenship Honor Roll. Congratulations!!


iPads are almost complete. As of tomorrow morning, students in grades K, 1, 2, 4, 5 and 6 should have their iPads back and restored. All passcodes are currently 0000 but you may change them. Also, Apple IDs are now managed by the school, so any apps to be added will be done through the office. This should make things MUCH easier for you as a parent!

Jean Day for Pennies for Playground & Food Bank – Friday, January 23

On Friday, January 23, students & staff may wear jeans along with a school appropriate casual top of their choice. You may also wear: Spirit Wear or an 8th grade shirt. In order to participate, students must bring a $1.00 donation to benefit the Pennies for Playground Restoration Drive AND an item for the Food Bank.
Since Preschool children do not wear a uniform they may also participate in a Food Bank offering, (optional), by bringing in a food item needed below (you do not need to pay the $1.00).
The Food Bank items that are needed are as follows: Canned Tuna, Jelly, Peanut Butter & Spaghetti Sauce. Please turn in both donations to your homeroom teacher.
Thank you for helping out.

Credit/Debit Card Payments now available in school or online!

Great news! We can now accept payments online or at school for the many things you currently write checks for! We will be utilizing Square - a completely safe alternative to writing checks. There is a 2.75% fee that is added to each transaction and will show up as a tax - it ends up costing about $1 per every $36 spent. It is a convenience fee and an option, but you may also still pay by cash or check. Tuition will still be paid using SmartTuition.

You can pay online from the website by clicking on the "payments" tab. You can pay for lunch, field trips, milk, CYO, Jean day donations, etc. all from the website. Put everything on one charge and you'll receive an emailed receipt. Just forward that receipt to and we will make sure it is applied where it needs to be.

If you pay for lunch online, please add the receipt number (see the red box below) to the lunch form so we know which is your payment.

You can also pay by swiping your card in the main office.

We hope this is just one more convenient way to help you manage your daily life and school at St. Mary Rockwood!
