Dear Rock Ridge Community:

We just wrapped up DCHS’s Feeder Wish Week for Emily, a 5-year old from Castle Rock diagnosed with a genetic disorder that has left her blind. Rock Ridge students, staff, and community raised $850.90 for Emily’s wish week, adding to the overall total of over $47,000.00 that was raised by the entire DCHS feeder system. Thank you all so much for participating and helping her dream come true. The PTO Silent Auction Chili Cookoff Dinner (February 28th, 2020, 5:00-7:00pm) is quickly approaching and every year one of the items that we give away is a brand-new bow. This year we are auctioning off a Genesis competition bow, the same bow we use for the National Archery in the Schools Program tournament. Be sure to bid! (https://www.32auctions.com/ RREsilentauction. Plan on joining us for a fun filled night with lots of cool stuff to bid on and an awesome fundraiser event. February 2nd recently passed and supposedly the groundhog did not see his shadow. Hard to believe with the weather we are having and all this snow. With the poor conditions the school district has had to call a “delayed start” for our school day. In case you have forgotten, when the district has a delayed start, Rock Ridge elementary will have first bell at 10:00am with doors opening at 9:50am. BASE will also be on a 90-minute delay and all morning activities are cancelled as is morning pre-school classes and ½ day am kindergarten classes. Breakfast will also not be served. Please be sure that your children are well bundled and are not dropped off or sent to school any earlier than 9:50am. If the weather was severe enough to result in a delayed start, then your child could be placed in jeopardy should you bring/send them to school any earlier. Should you have any questions, concerns or celebrations, please feel free to contact me. I look forward to hearing from you as we set our eyes on Spring.

Sincerely, Peter Mosby, Principal
