Parents, again, a major email virus was released into WCPS on Monday February 23rd at approximately 12:00 noon. We are running all types of repairs and scans, but email may not be reliable as a form of communication for the next day or so. We are hoping the steps we are taking will repair the damage from the virus, but that is still up in the air. So, please DO NOT send anything of major importance to the building via email tomorrow. I cannot say how quickly this will be repaired, it seems to be all county schools, not just ours, so it is a big issue! I will try to keep you updated on Facebook as to the progress being made. Thank you for your patience as we work through this technological issue.
Check out this great video of one of our students receiving a box from Le Cordon Bleu! What an amazing gift to inspire a young student, and other students to attend this University! Thank you to the wonderful people there, Rockland Woods appreciates you, and I am sure you inspired many students to enter the culinary arts!
Jump Rope for Heart is coming!
Coming home in your child’s folder (grades K-2) you will find information from the American Heart Association concerning Jump Rope for Heart. Every year all Rockland Woods students participate in this event because it encourages them to take care of their hearts through physical activity while making a difference in the lives of others by raising funds to support research to fight heart disease and stroke.
The Jump Rope for Heart information includes an envelope, and a permission slip with a coupon at the bottom. If your child is interested in ONLY returning $5 in order to receive SPLATTER duck and the lanyard, just clip the coupon and send it in with your money or a check made out to the AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION. If your child is interested in the coupon and collecting more money for the Heart Association, send both, the coupon and your money as well as the permission slip. That way I know that your child will be collecting more money in order to receive additional prizes.
Also included with your envelope are the instructions to collect donations online. This is a very secure site and the procedure is quite simple, plus the students can earn additional ducks!:)
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask
Box Tops and Soda Pops!
We need your box tops and soda pop 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! Mrs. Rubisch will take your Coca Cola points and turn those into awesome things for the library.
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.
