Hello Rocky Mountain Families! 

Our 21 Days of Eagles Be Nice will continue this week.  We start with Good Manners Monday, followed by Teach Someone Tuesday, We Include Others Wednesday, Time to Help Thursday, and Work with a Friend Friday.  Over the weekend our focus will be ‘Be a Helper’, like doing a chore without being asked.

We still have Rocky Mountain Elementary T-Shirts available for sale.  The T-shirts come in light blue or green.  We have both student and adult sizes!  T-shirts are $10.00 (2X & 3X are $11.00).

Our annual Walk-A-Thon will be happening on Friday!  Thank you for supporting our school-wide Walk-A-Thon with pledges.  Your pledges will be supporting our SPECIALS department with refreshed supplies and equipment to support PE, Music, Science, Computers & Library.

Topic of the week - Spanish


April: Child Abuse Prevention Month

Each year, hundreds of kids in Mesa County are exposed to violence, abuse, and neglect. The good news about child abuse is that it is 100% preventable. Nobody wants to believe it can happen in our community, but it does. Do your part to prevent it.

In Mesa County Valley School District 51, elementary school counselors address prevention strategies with students in classroom lessons each year. I will be presenting personal safety lessons in each classroom during the month of April.   The focus of the lesson is to encourage children to talk to trusted adults (parents, teachers, etc.) if they have concerns about safety.

Sometimes, this topic has special significance to a family.  If you have concerns about your child that I should be sensitive to, please do not hesitate to contact me.

If you suspect child abuse - or if a child tells you about abuse - making a report is very important! You cannot get into trouble or lose your job for making a report that turns out to be unfounded if you had good intentions when you made the report.

Call 970-242-1211 or dial 9-1-1 if you suspect abuse.

Thank you,

Jessica Barton

School Counselor
