Dear Rock Ridge Families, 

Welcome back! I am excited for everyone’s return for another great year and look forward to all the adventures that are in store for us. Our clap-in event was a huge success with lots of excited kids and families kicking off the school year. 
A new school year brings many opportunities including the opportunity to become more involved with your neighborhood school. There are many ways you can be a part of RRE, including joining our PTO, SAC (School Accountability Committee), Watch Dogs, volunteering in the classroom, helping out with a club, or just dropping by to have lunch with your kid(s). Please take the time to check your calendars and make time to help make Rock Ridge a better place. It takes a Village. 
With the new school year, we also have some important dates. Below please check out what is upcoming in the near future so that you can be prepared and join us for some fun! You can also find these events on the school calendar. 
Picture day will be Thursday, August 17th. All parents and children are invited to attend our Meet and Greet PTO BBQ on August 17th starting at 5:00 pm.
