Red Rocks Reflections December 2019

2020 is here, and with the new decade Red Rocks is poised to move ahead. Some highlights:

Red Rocks teachers are committed to growing. We revamped our professional time this year in support of the district “Deeper Learning Model” and our teacher teams are diving into more robust planning. Teachers are crafting new lessons and looking to increase academic consistency across all grade levels to increase student achievement. 

Red Rocks students score within the top schools of Colorado annually, as noted by the John Irwin School of Excellence award. The Peer Mentor program sees 5th graders assisting younger classrooms and serving around the school.  Student Council members advise the school on purchases like improved playground equipment and members participate in school tours. One of our most popular programs, “Book Buddies,” pairs older and younger classrooms as readers and mentors--it is a truly special program designed by our teachers. 

 Red Rocks families provide extraordinary support. Beyond the many volunteers for clubs like STEAM or Girls on the Run, our active PTA wraps the staff with love and appreciation and ensures we can provide abundant resources for learning. Our SAC gives valuable  insight into school decisions. Check out the Watch DOG bulletin board and you’ll see the tremendous gift of  family involvement at our school. 

 As principal I can look to our new decade with confidence. Thank you for the privilege of working with your kids. My best holiday wishes to all of you. Go Raccoons! --Mr. I
