Join Rockwell’s Equity Team
Rockwell is looking for parents and other Rockwell family members to join our school Equity team! Team members would partner with us to learn more about topics related to race and equity in education and would work alongside members of the staff to promote equity here at our school. We are looking for team members with a variety of perspectives and backgrounds, and you do not need to be an expert in equity to join – we’re all learning and growing together! Please click here for information about this opportunity. if you are interested in meeting to discuss this possibility, please contact Michael Clark, Rockwell Principal,

Looking for fun ideas over Holiday Break?
Check out Heritage Night!

Rockwell Families: It's not too late to enjoy the PTA's annual Heritage Night. One benefit of having this as a "virtual" event this year is that you can enjoy Heritage "Night" when it's convenient for you! We have some wonderful cooking tutorials that would be great family activities over the long holiday break coming up :) 

For those who aren’t familiar with this important Rockwell tradition, Heritage Night is a special occasion where our PTA and school families celebrate the wonderfully rich and diverse cultures in our community. In “normal” times, the PTA hosts a large event at Redmond high school where we feature different booths from around the world. Parent volunteers organize each booth, and showcase fun and interesting features of their family’s country of origin. 
Even though it's not safe to assemble in person this year, we still wanted to keep the Heritage Night tradition alive. In these links you’ll find fun cooking videos, photos that feature Rockwell students in traditional outfits from around the world, interesting artifacts, and dance performances from several students. 
The PTA is deeply appreciative to all the parent and student volunteers who dedicated their time to help keep this important school tradition going, even in these disconnected times. And a very special thank you to Mansi Majeed, the Chair for Heritage Night. Enjoy!!
