What is the Principal Reading?

For kids:   What if you knew the answer to every question, but couldn't respond?  Out of My Mind tells the moving tale of a girl living with cerbral palsy. I also recommend reading Newbery Medal and Honor Books, you'll be glad you did! 

For Adults: Our professional culture continues to be anchored to many of the principles found in Dare to Lead by Brene Brown and other leadership texts. 



Red Rocks Families: 

Ask a kid if pilots care about landing a plane well. Do landings matter? Yes! As we enter the last portion of the school year we ask your partnership to “stick the landing!” 

Yes, attendance matters! Thank you for supporting our students with consistent attendance. Routines matter. Ask any orchestra or sports team–repetition helps refine and improve skills. We’ve found this brochure helpful for K-5 students: Attendance in the early grades brochure 

Red Rocks students excel at “showing what they know.” While some folks see state testing as high stakes, here at Red Rocks we want our kids to see the natural life lesson of simply doing their best and rising to a challenge. Yes, state tests are hard! Good. It is a chance for all of us to shine. I am proud of the positive culture our staff creates around these annual tests. Got a question about tests? Reach out to me.

Red Rocks excels at community engagement. Our families get to know each other and develop real connections. Did you know that “events” are a part of our safety plan? Kids thrive when adults connect positively. I encourage you to get involved with PTA and support upcoming events like the PTA Carnival and Auction. 

Spring is a great time to be at Red Rocks–Go Raccoons!  –Mr. Isaac
