Dear Rock Ridge Community:

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving this past month, enjoying the record snowfall. With only two weeks of school left prior to winter break there are a lot of fun activities going on at Rock Ridge.

One of the fun activities we just finished was our portion of the Snuggly Read-a- thon, where we get to dress up in our pajamas and read our favorite books. Mrs. Roach, Mrs. Gutierrez, and myself had the privilege of sharing our favorites books to 1st grade. Always a fun, exciting event that we look forward to every year!

One celebration I wanted to share is an example of where Rock Ridge spends money to invest in our studentsfutures. Rock Ridge sponsors part of the cost for DC Downbeats, a program that promotes the development of instrumental music education for both Orchestra and Band. Along with the other DCHS feeder schools Rock Ridge helps pay for the instructor of the program. If your child is interested in learning an instrument, please visit the DC Downbeat Elementary Orchestra web page for more information.

With the end of 2019 fast approaching, RRE has acquired a large amount of Lost and Found. Please come in and peruse our vast selection. All non-claimed items will be donated Wednesday, December 18th at the end of school.

As a quick update, the state assessment (CMAS) will take place at Rock Ridge from March 30th, 2020-April 16th, 2020. If you have any questions please check our school website or contact Julie Roach.

Should you have any questions, concerns or celebrations, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you and have a Merry Christmas.

Peter Mosby, Principal
