Rocket Report

Vol. 4, No. 20, January 15th
Enjoy the 3 day weekend!
Words With Wilson
It has been a fantastic week having all of our Rockets back in the building. The bustle in the building is welcomed and needed! I am so impressed with how our students have been able to make so many transitions since March and keep smiling faces and positive attitudes.

I am equally impressed by how hard our students worked during the 2nd quarter. Learning from home is a challenge. It is a challenge to remain motivated and to learn in a setting where their teacher is not in the same room as them. Our Rockets did an outstanding job, and I couldn't be more proud of them. Way to go, Rockets!

Have a fantastic weekend!

Re-Enrollment for 2021-2022
We are nearing our re-enrollment period for the next school year. Details will be available in early to mid-January. All returning students will have the opportunity to register for $100 (per student Registration Fee) if registered before March 1st. 

Once open enrollment begins, on March 1st, the registration fee will increase to $125 for ALL students (including new and returning). 
School Make-Up Days
The week of Thanksgiving we took two school days to give our teachers some much needed time to prepare for E-Learning. This year our breaks have been very welcome by our students and our staff. With things being so different, the occasional day off really helps everyone recharge.

We are going to make up our days on Thursday, May 20th, and Friday, May 28th. On May 20th we will have an E-Learning Day. We will be in-person on Friday, May 28th as that will be our last day of school. We will dismiss at 1 pm on both days.

Making up our days in May will allow us to keep some days off during the long winter months.

My Story, R Family
My Story, R Family
What an awesome story for this week's My Story, R Family! Kim Elzea and her son Cole, current Roncalli senior, made the move to RHS over the summer, and as a senior, that is not an easy decision to make. We are blessed that they chose to spend this last year with us! It is NEVER too late to join the Roncalli Family!
