    • Parents need to report to the activity room by 9:30 the day of field day.
    • Students need to dress comfortably for a day of outside activities. Wear sunscreen, and a hat or sunglasses are optional. They should bring a water bottle that they can refill if possible.

  • As a service to our RRES families, the PTO is sponsoring the pre-order of your child’s school supplies for next year.  School supply kits are sold at cost and delivered to the school for pick up at Open House on August 31st. This is NOT a fundraiser.  Send your paper order into school with payment made out to Rocky Run PTO by June 9th, or order online until June 30th at educationalproducts.com/shoppacks.  School ID: RUN000 (3 letters/3 numbers).”
  • Reminder: The school store will be open every Friday morning…and it will be mobile.  Be on the lookout from a classroom near you.  Remember, nothing in the store is more than a dollar.  Please do not send children with bills larger than a $5.  Thanks in Advance!
  • A few Bulldog Pride Rock Rentals are still available!  You can rent the rock for $20 a week in celebration of birthdays, holidays, or a personal achievement!  (Important Note: When you rent the rock for the week, you are paying for your ability to paint the rock NOT for the rock to be painted for you).For more information and to reserve your week, contact Becca Craven at vicepresident@rockyrunpto.org .
  • Remember to continue to send in Box Tops for Education…it’s better to have them counted for next year than to expire in your kitchen drawer.
  • Giant A+ Rewards are in full effect.  Remember, this year, you do not need to re-register your card if your school selections remains the same.​
