Hello Rocky Mountain Families! 

Please keep these important dates and events in mind:


  • Celebrate Our Learning Night will be held on Thursday, September 3rd from 4:45-6:45.  This will be an excellent way to connect with classroom teachers to learn more about grade level and classroom expectations.  There will also be several booths in the gym run by our specials team and support personnel.  There will be math games to take home.  And there will be a delicious free dinner provided by our Nutrition Services department!
  • PTO – we are always in need of help for the various events that PTO sponsors.  If you are interested in popcorn sales, taking pictures for student of the month, helping with the Scholastic Book Fair, or helping with the fundraiser, please give the office a call. We would greatly appreciate the help!
  • Only a few more days before ABC fundraiser orders must be turned in!  Please support in any way you can.  All proceeds from the sale support our school in becoming the best place for students to learn and grow!  Orders must be turned in by Friday, September 4th.
  • If you haven’t filled out a Free and Reduced Lunch application, it is not too late.  We will be having computers set up for parents to apply during out Celebrate Our Learning Night.  Rocky Mountain Elementary receives Title One funding based on our percentage of students who qualify for Free and Reduced Lunch.  Please help us maintain our funding for full day kindergarten, reading interventions, and classroom instructional materials by filling out an application. 
  • Safety Drills – We have completed two fire drills, a reunification drill and a shelter-in-place this year.  We practice so that we will be prepared in case of a real situation.  Our staff and students do a great job following the safety protocols.  We will also be practicing lockdown drills, and we will have several more fire drills throughout the school year.  We practice these drills in conjunction with the D51 Safety and Security department and the Mesa County Sheriff’s department, which includes Deputy Chad Searcy, our School Resource Officer.  Safety first! 
  • PICTURE DAY – Thursday, September 3rd!


Have a great week!

Love those kids,

Patti Virden
