Principal's Letter: 9/1/16
Once more, Rocky Plains has some exciting news to share. I’m sure your children have come home with much excitement concerning the FUN RUN healthy competition. We are asking each parent to register their student(s) online. The link for registering is online and can be found on the school’s webpage. Our students and parents are encouraged to raise a minimum of $40.00 (8 sponsors at $5), but you may donate as much as your donors will give
All of the proceeds will be applied to purchase student computers and instructional needs for teachers to use in the classroom We encourage everyone to promote healthy living through the RPES FUN RUN.
There is another area that we are watching closely, and that is attendance: Student tardies, early check-outs, and absences comprise the attendance component. From July 29th until August 31st, approximately a five-week period, we have had in excess of 280 tardies and absences and 272 early checkouts. This information is monitored closely by the State Department of Education. Rocky Plains as well all of the schools in the State are under this evaluation. We are asking for your support in having a strong student attendance at Rocky Plains.
In September, we are hosting one of our favorite events: Grandparents Day. Please watch our website for grade specific dates and times. As the event gets closer, more information will be sent home.
As always, parents and volunteers are very special to us, and we look forward to seeing you at RPES.
