Next Week’s News! 9/22/17
What a crazy week! We’re so glad everyone is safe, and we are wishing Jose would just move along!
Next week we wind up our study of apples. We have taste tested, examined the parts of an apple, made a still life painting and cooked up some applesauce. The books we will be reading will include:
“The Apple Pie Tree” by Zoe Hall and Shari Halpern
“The Busy Little Squirrel” by Nancy Tafuri
“Johnny Appleseed” by Patricia Demuth and Michael Montgomery
“Fall” by Sian Smith
“Flora’s Very Windy Day” by Jeanne Birdsall and Matt Phelan
“Apple Trouble” by Ragnhild Scamell and Michael Terry
The Golf Classic is on Monday! If you would like to participate in golf, tennis, or just dinner, please contact Beth DeGerlia ASAP! BDegerlia@rockyhill.org
A big THANKS to all who attended Parent Night in Lower School. It was wonderful to have you all here. As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to drop me an email.
To answer some questions that have come in, here is the RHS policy regarding missed days:
“We will offer “make-up days” only for a child’s scheduled days that fall on a day that RHS closes (as opposed to when a child is out for other reasons.) Even then, the day to be made up needs to be arranged with Lisa and Mrs. Ponterelli so that it works for the class size or any other considerations on a given day.”
Our Virtuoso schedule is:
Tuesday: Science with Mr. Wyzga and Spanish with Senora
Wednesday: Music with Ms. Emily
Thursday: P.E. with Mrs. Wood (don’t forget your sneakers)
Friday: Library (please bring your library books in)
As the weather begins to cool off, please make sure the extra clothing in your child’s RHS bag are appropriate.
On Thursday, October 5th we will have a visit from the Fire Department for Fire Safety Week!
Homecoming is Saturday, October 14th!
Do you know a family who would benefit from a Rocky Hill education? Please send them to our Fall Admissions Open House on Sunday, October 22nd at 1:00 p.m.
Our annual Pumpkin Carving Night will be Tuesday, October 24th at 5:30 p.m. Bring your pumpkin, carving tools and something to share for dinner. Is there a parent who would like to organize our potluck? Just let me know.
