Rocket Report
Vol. 2, No. 25, February 15, 2019
Thank you to Mrs. Lucy Moses for putting together this wonderful bulletin board display honoring Black History Month. This bulletin board can be seen outside of the Main Office at school.
Words with Wilson
On Tuesday, our Elementary Spell Bowl team competed in the South Deanery Spell Bowl Competition hosted here at St. Roch. The team had enough students to split into four different teams, and managed to bring home a 1st and a 3rd place trophy! There were 13 teams who competed from five deanery schools. We had teams from Central Catholic, St. Barnabas, St. Mark, OLG and Sts. Francis and Clare. The Rockets were coached by Mrs. Gann and Ms. Leppert.

Landon Ambrosia Robinson, Sawyer Borders, Lucas Sigler, Alex Jarvis, Kendall Kocher, Faith Lowry, Hayden Bauman, and Collin Ash all spelled for the team who placed 1st. Other members of the team include Maggie Hayes, Isaiah Littell, Frankie Eagan, Annabelle Snyder, Lucy Hermann, Christian Moguel, Victoria McDole, Will Reed, Zane Hamblin, Jillian Reeves, Holly Reeves, Kaitlyn Wade, Nicholas Bastida, Jacob Gaskill, Lexy Brand, Hailey Mullins, Vivian Hayes, and Eli Price.

Way to go, Rockets!
Come out and cheer for the Rockets!
