What is the Principal Reading?

For kids:  I recommend reading Newbery Medal and Honor Books, especially the Honor Books, such as Heart of a Samurai

For Adults:  My brother is a principal and he recommended The Six Conversations. It is a powerful reminder about connecting. Our professional culture continues to be anchored to many of the principles found in Dare to Lead by Brene Brown and other leadership texts. Latest leadership reading: FYI: For Your Improvement by Lombardo and Eichinger.


From Mr. Isaac:"Leaping Into Learning" in 2024

Winter at Red Rocks is a magical time.

  • Students and staff get to see the growth of mid-year academics and make adjustments moving past January into spring. 
  • Events pick up! We hope to have a visit soon from a scientist with the NASA program, and teachers have planned more outings, as well as visits from "Eco Adentures." School traditions like the Spelling Bee anchor us to the Science of Reading and to excellence in academics. PTA events include community builders like Paint on the Rocks, and you won't want to miss family game night in March! 
  • Our students gain confidence, and we can actually see them getting taller! Wow! This time of year each classroom that walks by starts to look like the next older grade! 
  • New students are now fully "Raccoons!" One new student said to me, "You know Mr. I, the older kids at my other school were always mean. The older students at Red Rocks are always nice to the younger kids." That means a lot to us. Our students are leaders, and it makes a difference. 
  • As we move into spring we will share more about 2024-25 planning, budget and academic vision. 

Winter is a great time to be at Red Rocks! Go Raccoons! --Mr. I
