Week of April 23, 2018  

Dear Rock Creek Families:  

Attendance  week of 4/16/18:  96.26%!!!  We met our attendance goal!  

PTO is sponsoring another Scholastic Book Fair beginning on Wednesday.  This book fair is Buy One/Get One free.  It is also a books only book fair, meaning no posters, toys, etc. will be sold.  The book fair will only be open during school hours Wednesday, April 25 - May 1.  On May1st, the book fair will stay open after school and during the art show till 6PM.   

Tips to make book fair shopping easier for students:  

  • *Please talk to your student(s) about what you wish for them to purchase. 

  • *Students need to go to class and check in before heading to the library to shop in the mornings. All students can shop during their library time.

  • *All money should be placed in an envelope/Ziploc, labeled with the student's name, teacher, and the amount of money.

  • *Please do not send bags full of uncounted changed.   

MAP testing begins this week for grades 3-5. We are confident that our students are going to "Rock It!"  

How can you help ensure their success for testing?  

  • *Assure your students they are prepared.  They have practiced and they have learned a lot this year.  They just need to take their time, read questions/answer choices carefully, show what they know, and double check their work.

  • *Ensure they get a great night's sleep. 

  • *Provide a healthy breakfast and lunch to give their brains power to think clearly and to focus. 

  • *Attendance is important.  Get your child to school on time and avoid signing them out early.
