Hello Rocky Mountain Families!


Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year!!  We are very excited to start a new year with our students.  This year Rocky Mountain Elementary will be focused on building culture and community within classrooms and throughout the school.  We will be using our ‘HALL’ mantra quite a bit which stands for Habits, Attitudes, and Learning for Life.  Students will be engaged in classroom circles to help build a strong, positive culture that support HALL.  You will start hearing a lot about Growth Mindset (the Attitude part in HALL).  We will also be having some parent nights to actively engage you in our learning process with the Growth Mindset! 

Now that we have practiced the drop-off and morning routines with students, we will be transitioning back to our regular safety policy in the mornings.  Parents and Guardians are welcome to join their children in the cafeteria.  They can also walk them to the front entrance to wish them well for their school day.  We will no longer have parents/guardians be walking students down the hallways.  We will be available to walk students down the hallway if they are used to having a parent bring them during this transition.  Thank you for helping us provide a safe environment for all of our students!

August 19th-September 1st – ABC School-Wide Fundraiser
