A NOTE FROM PRINCIPAL GUETTER

Good Afternoon ROCORI Parents/Guardians-

When the students return on Monday, we will turn the calendar to the busy month of May. In this week’s newsletter, there are many important dates and related information regarding some of the school events we have in the next few weeks. We are under five weeks of school remaining and many activities and academics to complete in this time. Please remind and help your children continue to have a healthy balance of academics, activities, and also taking time to rest and recharge. As we look to wrap up a challenging 2020-2021 school year, we want to make sure our students remain healthy throughout the remainder of the school year.

Have a great weekend and stay safe.
