2018 Red Rock Back to School Night

posted Aug 29, 2018, 1:49 PM by Red Rock   [ updated Sep 12, 2018, 5:58 AM ]

WELCOME BACK!  
Red Rock Elementary Back-to-School Night  
Wednesday, August 29, 2018 | 4:30 – 6:00 P.M. 



BACK-TO-SCHOOL NIGHT CHECKLIST  
  • Meet the Teacher: Visit your child's classroom and meet his or her teacher.  If you know your child’s bus information, bring it with you.
  • School Supplies: Bring in your child's school supplies.
  • Conferences:  Red Rock is using an electronic system called PTCfast to schedule conferences. More details will be sent out in September.

VISIT THE COMMONS
  • Volunteer:  Calling all parents and guardians. Choose PTO opportunities that fit your schedule and talents.

VISIT THE GYM
  • Purchase Thursday Folder & Agenda (2nd- 5th grades):  $5 (write a check to “Red Rock”).
  • School Directory: Sign your family up to be included in the school directory. The update will also automatically sign you up to receive the PTO Red Rocket email updates.
  • Student Directory Changes from Past Years

    Each year the PTO offers families the opportunity to be a part of a student directory in which families can use to connect with other families at Red Rock. Previously, a hard copy was provided to families in late October. This year we are moving to an electronic student directory on MySchoolAnywhere.com. More information on how the new online Student Directory works can be found here.

     

    Families in the Directory Last Year

    Families that were in the Directory last year will receive an email asking you to log into the new system and update the data from last year’s directory that has been uploaded for you. You will want to make sure to enter your child’s new grade and new teacher into the system.  Information for updating your family's information in the online directory can be found here.  If you don’t confirm your information, you will not be published in the new online Student Directory.

     

    Families New to the Directory

    Families that were not in the Directory last year will want to go to join.myschoolanywhere.com (there is no www) and type in the code RedRock (all one word). Fill out the information on the form. Once we've had a chance to verify your family’s information, you'll receive an email with login credentials and instructions to access the system. Detailed instructions on how to input your information for new families can be found here.  If you don’t input your information, you will not be published in the new online Student Directory.

     

    More Details

    After families either confirm or input information into the system, the data will be verified.  Then everyone’s information will be made live and published in the new Online Student Directory.  At that time, instructions will follow with how to find yours and other families’ information in the new system.

  • Pride Wear: Now's the time to purchase fun Red Rock T-shirts and water bottles. Students are encouraged to wear their pride gear on Pride Day, which is the first Friday of each month.
  • Kid's Club: Speak with representatives regarding before- and after-school care.
  • School Lunch Table: Deposit money into your child's school lunch account

VISIT THE OFFICE
  • Transportation: Get your transportation questions answered.
  • School Patrol: Learn about our school's crossing guard program.
 
VISIT THE MEDIA CENTER
  • Stop by the Media Center to check it out.

Volunteers are needed to cover a few shifts that afternoon/evening. If you volunteer one shift, you'll still have plenty of time to visit your child's/children's classroom(s). Please consider helping out.

Calling all parents....we need your help!  February 27 - March 6 is the Red Rock Book Fair Fundraiser, and much of its success hinges on parent participation.  Please consider signing up for one (or more) of the following volunteer shifts.  Let your extended family members (like grandparents) know they are welcome to volunteer.  Please understand that some of the shifts may be a little longer or shorter than the times listed due to the traffic flow at the book fair.  A book fair chairperson will always be working with you and can answer any questions you may have.
