Reflections and Events

Can you believe we only have 15 days of school remaining? As I reflect on the year, my first thoughts are snow, snow, and more snow! The renovation work and lovely landscaped courtyard are sweet endings to this multi-year project. Additional memories of the Rock Creek family that bring me joy: Christmas at CAL, Race for Education, our new electronic sign, parents volunteering in the cafeteria and carpool, watching Ms. Ely pull teeth, the kindergartners keeping me honest about my screen time during Philippo, and dancing like a mummy for Book Fair celebration. My fondest memories are of observing your children worship during Chapel, hearing their sweet voices singing songs of praise, and watching them grow in their knowledge of God. I encourage you to ask your children about their favorite memories of the year. Take time to talk, share, and remember the year together; you will not regret it!

We have many events planned over the next three weeks and want to ensure you have them on your calendars. On Friday, May 30, at 1:30 p.m. we will end our year with a family-wide celebration of memories during Chapel. We will have fun, praise God, and say a very fond good-bye to our 5th graders. Although everyone is looking forward to a wonderful summer break, the last day of school is filled with a myriad of feelings for our teachers and staff. We are excited to see them take this next step, but we will miss your children! If your schedule allows, please join us for this special Chapel. Just be sure to bring tissues and a camera!
