Community Serve Day is on Sunday!  Please join us in helping teachers and staff at Rockwell prepare for the new school year.  We could really use your help!  Our volunteer numbers are down considerably compared to last year, and we have a larger number of teachers and staff to support, as well as many other projects.  

If you have time to spare (even if it is only for a couple of hours), please join us.  Please note that if we have inclement weather, there are numerous indoor projects that need to be done, so don't let that keep you away! 
Registration for the event is now closed, but you may join without registering.  If you are interested in joining and would like to receive the email update that will be sent later this week, please email Elaine Bentzinger.

Food is also needed for Community Serve Day volunteers! 

Please help feed our wonderful volunteers either by signing up to bring a tray of sandwiches, cookies or fruit/veggies or by setting up, maintaining the table, cleaning up... any help is appreciated. 

Sign up right here.

Can't make it at 12:30pm to show your appreciation to these hard workers? No problem! Bring your food to the Rockwell gym any time after 9am on Sunday and we will store it until lunchtime.

Questions?  Send an email to  Elaine Bentzinger.



Due to ongoing air quality concerns, the playdate scheduled for today has been canceled. 

We look forward to meeting you at Dog Day!
