Red Rocks Reflections, October 2018:

Dear Red Rocks Community:

In honor of “Rocktober” and our wonderful hometown baseball team, we remember that October is a great season of learning and growing for our kids and adults.

We look forward to meeting with our families at conferences, most of which will occur between October 8-11. As principal I ask our teachers to actively engage our families and include a level of “customer service” in presenting information that makes a difference for each child. I know they are working hard to prepare, so thank you for partnering with us.

Speaking of parent partners: You’ll see a thermometer in the lobby about PTA. The PTA is a great group of humans and we encourage you to sign up. We hear laughter and creative ideas at meetings, and the team is always looking to add to our school. It is a truly unique group and Red Rocks is better because of our great PTA.

You should being hearing stories from your kids about teachers taking their class to the outdoor classroom--we have many more teachers taking advantage of the setting. Who knows, maybe Mr. I will figure out ways to have more parent meetings there as well (before it snows! Ha).

Finally, for those who wanted specific information, we have resources in our lobby to inform you on the potential impact of 5A/5B for Red Rocks.We encourage everyone to be informed and decide their stance on the measures.

Enjoy October! It’s a great month to be a Red Rocks Raccoon!   --Mr. Isaac
