On behalf of the Field Day team we would like to thank all our parent volunteers. Without you, we couldn't have had such a great day, nor have it run so smoothly. You manage to keep everybody under control all while having water splashed on you, getting sticky from bubbles & having sand in your shoes. Special thanks also goes out to our awesome 5 th graders who provided such an excellent example to the younger students this year by being on time & super helpful to all our parent volunteers. You should be very proud of yourselves!
An extra special shout out of course goes to the fabulous Christine Cottom ! No one can call a tug-of-war like you.

It takes a village . . . . . to create a fabulous yearbook!

Thank you to all those who contributed photos to create this year's book. Your kids are going to love it!

We are recruiting for next year - we have broken the yearbook job down into several parts and want to try something new with our photo collection efforts. Except photography, all the jobs can be done at home, at any time of day. And the LifeTouch software is easy to use.

Yearbook layout lead - 1 person - are you a big picture person? All of the pages you see in our yearbook are filled with templates we've created over the past six years. You can use these or create new to set the stage for the general book layout.

Photography lead for events - 1 person - coordinating photographs for all the special Rockwell events next year.

Photography leads for each grade - 6 people - coordinating photographs for your student's full grade and all the special Rockwell events will help us get an equal representation of all 650-plus students at Rockwell.

Yearbook creation - do you love to scrapbook? Well our yearbook is just an 88-page scrapbook.  If you like to create the special pages and select the photos use, then this is the job for you.
