Hello Rocky Mountain Families! 

We have a fantastic event coming up this Wednesday from 4:30-6:00!  We will be having a camping themed read-in event at our school!  We will be having a hot dog dinner in the cafeteria from 4:30-5:00pm.  We will have a family read-in inside the gym that will be turned into a camping theme extravaganza!  And you will have an opportunity to browse our Scholastic Book Fair – which is a Buy One Get One Free event!  Students must be accompanied by their parents/guardians.  Students can bring sleeping bags, blankets, or pillows for story telling around the campfire!

We have a special focus for the month of February.  Our theme is All Day Every Day!  Our goal is to have every single student here every day for the entire day.  It is extremely important that students are here for the entire day.  Please make sure that students are arriving by 8:30.  Critically important learning opportunities are happening between 8:30-8:45 during morning circle time.  Checking out students early also causes disruption to learning.  Students are often missing key components of learning and are missing opportunities for checking understanding for content that has been delivered.  Have you ever started watching a movie fifteen minutes after it started?  When that happens to me I often feel like I missed something really important that would have helped me understand the whole movie.  The same goes for leaving a movie early.  The last fifteen minutes can often matter the most.  Please help us support kids in getting the largest benefit of learning by having students here for the entire school day.  Every Minute Matters!
