Happy New Year, ROCStars! I hope you’re getting back into the swing of things after a restful and joyful break.  We’re jumping right back into action at Parent Circle.  Here’s what’s happening!

  1. 3 Hour Early Dismissal Tuesday, January 9th: Due to the threat of inclement weather, ROCS will dismiss 3 hours early (at 12:15pm) on Tuesday, January 9th.  Please be safe!
  2. Parent Circle Meeting: Our next Parent Circle meeting will be Tuesday, January 9th at 6:30pm.  DUE TO THE EARLY RELEASE AT ROCS AND THREAT OF SEVERE WEATHER, THIS MEETING WILL ONLY BE HELD VIA Google Meet.  If power outages are widespread, we will do our best but appreciate your flexibility if we are unable to meet as planned.
  3. Carpool Etiquette: just a quick reminder that if you arrive after 9:00am and the doors are closed, carpool is over and you must walk in with your student(s) to sign them in.  Please park in a spot to go in and do this instead of leaving your car in the carpool lane.  Leaving your car in the carpool lane blocks parked cars in and forces pedestrians to walk between cars which can be unsafe.  Thank you for your assistance with this!
  4. Don’t forget about the ROCS Root to Rise campaign.  Donations of all sizes are gratefully accepted and will allow ROCS to finish this year strong!
  5. Girls on the Run: if you are interested in coaching Girls on the Run for the Spring season, please reach out.  There are currently not enough coaches for ROCS to have a team.  GOTR is a program for 3-5th grade students that identify as female and focuses on building strong bodies, self esteem, and positive relationships.  Practices are held 2 days a week for 10 weeks and a 5K celebration concludes the season.  You 100% do not need to be a runner to coach!

Have an awesome week!
