RADA Cutlery Fund Raiser:  Our RADA Cutlery fund raiser will run through November 29. Please turn in any orders and catalogs by November 29.  Checks should be made to RKS. These items make great Christmas gifts.  For online orders go to www.radafundraising.com and put in the search bar: Rocky Knoll Home or the code 1008486 to make sure we get credit for your order.  Online orders will be sent directly to your home and a shipping charge will be added.  If you do a paper order and turn it in at the school, there is no shipping cost added to your order.

Drop Off:  Parents, please remember to have your child ready to get out of your vehicle when you pull up to the school.  There are many parents on their way to work in the morning and don’t have time to wait for many minutes at a time for a child to get out of the vehicle.  Please be conscious of this in the morning.

Staff Development:  School will close at noon on Monday, December 6, for Staff Development.  After School Care will run from 12:15 to 5:45 pm.  Lunches will not be needed on this day unless your child is staying for After School Care.

Weis 4 School:  Our school is participating in the Weis 4 School Program.  Please share the bar code with your family and friends so that we can earn points for our school which can be redeemed for cash funds to help support the school. 

Drive Through Bethlehem:  On Sunday, December 12, our students will be participating, along with the Martinsburg SDA Church, in a Drive Through Bethlehem event.  Students will be given costumes to wear and assigned places where they will be musically participating as the community, family and friends drive through the recreated town of Bethlehem. The arrival time for students will be announced after Thanksgiving.  Be sure to share this special event with your family and friends.  It will take place from 5:00-7:00 pm.

FACTS:  Parents, did you know that you can log into FACTS and check your child’s grades and attendance?  Just go to factsmgt.com and click on the parent log in.  Then put in the district code:  CC-SDA and then your username and password.  Finally, click on student on left hand side of screen.  Preschool and Kindergarten do not use FACTS except for attendance.
