Rockland Woods will be going through a transition of administrators in February. Mrs. Stiles has been appointed to lead the new Jonathan Hager Elementary in its operations and development and she will be leaving Rockland Woods on February 12th. We wish her nothing but the best in her new school, we will certainly miss her! And we welcome Mrs. Hope Fuss to our staff as our new Principal. Mrs. Fuss will be coming to us from Winter Street Elementary and will be starting February 16th. Mrs. Fuss is coming to us at a very exciting time as we are launching our DLP (DigitalLearning Plan) initiative. All of our 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders will be equipped with an iPad for their academic use and success. So welcome to Mrs. Fuss and lets get excited about our new technology!!
Welcome Mrs. Fuss to the Rockland Woods community. We are all looking forward to meeting and working with you!
Parents, please remember that the best way to communicate with your child's teacher is through our WCPS school email. The classroom Facebook pages and the Dojo are not efficient ways of getting important messages to your child's classroom teacher. These two formats may not be checked by teachers daily, but the email certainly will be, so please use email for your communication needs with your child's classroom teacher.
We need your box tops
Please start collecting your box tops to send in to Ms. Abeles and Mr. Waldron. These box tops help to fund new supplies for our PE program. Every time you purchase something with the box top symbol on it, please cut it out and send it into school, it is worth .10. These become cash that our PE program can use to buy items for field day and water day. Let's see if we can raise $2,000.00 in box tops this year!
Please visit the website for Box Tops For Education by clicking the image on the left for a list of products. Also, see below a helpful note from Ms. Abeles. Let's do what we can to support our awesome PE / Media programs and get those Box Tops and Soda Pops in.
