Weekly Announcements
Week of October 22, 2018

Dear Rock Creek Families: 

Attendance for week of October 16:  94.53%.  We did not meet our attendance goal for this week.  

Thank you PTO for the awesome Trunk or Treat!   To see pictures from the night, check out the news story on our website:  https://rce.fz.k12.mo.us/ 

Book Fair:  The Scholastic Book Fair continues to be open during school hours Monday - Wednesday.   On Wednesday, it will close for a short time after school and it will be moved to the gym and will remain open throughout Parent-Teacher Conferences.   

Tips for Successful Book Fair Shopping: 

  • *Talk to your child about what types of book and other items you would like for them to purchase. 

  • *Send money in an envelope or bag, marked with your child's name and teacher's name.   Pre-count all money.  

  • *Please avoid sending in large amounts of change, as it is time consuming for volunteers to counts and delays a student returning to class in a timely manner.  

Parent-Teacher Conferences:  Our teachers are excited to meet with you to share progress with you and to talk you about how they see your child as a learner.  Our goal is to meet with every parent.  Working together as a team can make such a positive impact on a student's growth.  Please email your child's teacher or contact the school office at 636-980-1800, if you need assistance scheduling a conference or if you need to reschedule for any reason.
