Dear ROCS Parents,

I hope you had a lovely long weekend! Last week was busy at ROCS, with field trips, guest speakers, and a wonderful Winter Faire!

Some updates and reminders:

  • Calendar reminders: we have early dismissals on March 8 and March 29; Spring Break is April 1- April 5. Looking ahead to EOG’s: the testing window is May 27-June 7; specific grade-level and small-group testing days are being developed and will be shared as they become available.
  • Clothing swap: We’re hosting a clothing swap next Saturday 9:00-11:00AM. Clothing contributions are welcome but not required to “shop.” 
  • Staff discussions: ROCS teachers are in active discussions surrounding how to best support students who are experiencing dysregulation. Our Parent/Student Handbook is currently being updated to include guidelines for those supports – those updates will be highlighted in a near-future message. 
  • Communications: Hopefully we can all agree that social media has positive and negative effects on how we connect and communicate. We love using these platforms for community-building, but when concerns arise (and they naturally do), please contact your child’s teacher directly as a first step to having them addressed.
  • Promotional video: We’ll be adding it to the website, but you can preview a video about ROCS here. Please feel free to share it with interested families!
  • Our new home: Site clearing has begun! I’ll provide ongoing updates as they’re available. The address is 3600 Sungate Blvd., and target date for completion is December 2024.

Thank you so much for your continued support!

In partnership,

Dr. J
