Thank you students, parents, staff and community members for making our Used Book Sale a great success.  We raised an amazing $1486.82 for the library!  Your generosity will help put many new books on our school library shelves for students to enjoy.  This project would not have been possible without the wonderful volunteers - students, parents and staff - who helped donate, price, organize, set-up, sell and clean-up the thousands of donated books.  A sincere thank you to all involved - volunteers, donors, and shoppers alike.  Have fun reading and start saving your gently used books for next spring's 14 th Annual Used Book Sale!

Many parent/guardian volunteers are needed for this special school activity. We need your help!

Event Hosts  will receive all materials needed to set up and manage one field event station with student volunteers. Hosts will offer students encouragement and praise for their participation, and assist with station clean up. Host check-in will be at 8:30 a.m. in front of the school. Younger siblings are welcome to accompany hosts, just let us know so that we can help you select an appropriate station. All hosts are required to have a current background check on file with LWSD, and so when responding to volunteer, please note if you need a form. Also, let us know if you would like to be paired at your event station with an English-speaking volunteer. 

Water Balloon Fillers   will receive 30 small balloons and nozzle via Kid Mail the week prior to field day, and will need to return the filled balloons to school with your child in the morning on Wednesday, June 14 . Drop containers will be located in front of the school.

Contact us with questions. Thank you!

Calling Parent Volunteers! It's Baaack!!   
The Pacific Science Center's excellent "Science On Wheels" school program will be at Rockwell on June  15th & 16th.  This year's program is titled "Rock and Roll" and we need parent volunteers to facilitate the exhibit area by guiding students through the portable exhibits set up in the library. 
If you are able to volunteer for a half day shift (or longer!)  Please click on this link to access the available slots on the SignUp Genius website.

We appreciate your assistance! In appreciation for your help, you will be given passes for free admission to Pacific Science Center exhibits.
If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. Weinmeister.
**Please remember, as with all Rockwell activities, you must be cleared by the district with a background check and be on the LWSD approved volunteer list to volunteer.
Thank you,
