It’s that time of the year again!

Rockwell’s PTA is looking forward to our very first VIRTUAL Heritage Night on December 3rd, 2020! This event has always been a fun filled and educational way to celebrate the cultural diversity of our students and this year will be no different. We are looking for ways to make this yearly tradition another success- virtually. Please reach out if you'd like to help with the event (either hosting a recorded dance lesson, a cooking lesson, or a video sharing something important or significant from your family's country of origin). Stay tuned for additional details, and ways you can volunteer. If you'd be interested in participating, please email Mansi at secretary@normanrockwellpta.org.
