Do you have your kite for Kite Day?
Next Tuesday, May 15 is our annual Kite Day.  This special Lower School tradition gathers our Lower School community together at the athletic fields for kite flying.  Families are invited to join us!  Please be sure your child brings an assembled and labeled kite to school that morning.  Weather permitting, the kites may be left on the grass outside Perkins Hall when students arrive in the morning. 

We’re in need of volunteers…can you lend a hand?
If you are available to assist our P.E. Teacher, Sue Wood, with our Lower School Field Day on Friday, June 1, please contact her at swood@rockyhill.org at your earliest convenience.  Opportunities to help set-up, oversee events and/or groups, as well as clean-up are available.  Your support will be greatly appreciated!

What’s for lunch??
Take a look at the lunch menu!

Take a Look…

Parents as Learners…
Gain insight into your child’s social-emotional and academic experiences.

Establishing positive thinking habits for children through envisioning language…
Setting a Vision for the Future

Mindful Moment…
Mindfulness has found a positive, peaceful, and valuable niche within our Lower School community.

August and Esme, our recent 5th grade Lower School Gathering leaders, used bubbles to create a mindful moment focusing on a peaceful, calm intention during this busy time of year!  Here’s a Bubbles Meditation to try at home.
