Good morning R.C. Waters!

Today is Friday, December 15, 2017

I hope you all enjoyed your big SNOW DAY yesterday!  

Happy “Lemon Cupcake Day!”  Enjoy!  

December is “Write a Friend Month.”  This is a wonderful time to write a note or card to someone special to you.  Let them know how grateful you are that they are in your life.  




R.C. Cagetakers:


Today is a Rocket Pride Friday.  Rocket Pride is being grateful for people and experiences in our lives.  There are many people doing wonderful things in the spirit of the season.  We have a fantastic group of volunteers working with the Santa Shop.  This annual event is a favorite and we appreciate them!   We need to say a big thank you to Miss Gillaspy for putting together 4 AMAZING Christmas program!  Thank you for bringing out the smiles, dance moves and voices of our fantastic students.  Finally, I want to say thank you to Mrs. Bryant.  She put together our 12 days of Christmas for Staff-Elf Style including daily themes & gifts and the most adorable elf pictures EVER to line the hallway!  As they say in the movie Elf “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!” Thank you to all of our favorite “Elves” this season!  You are AMAZING!   GO ROCKETS!  


The “Ties & Tiaras Daddy-Daughter Dance” is coming up tonight. From 6:00-8:30 at the High School the evening will include dancing, desserts and games to make lots of memories.  What a wonderful time to be had by all!


Here’s an idea of kindness for your Friday …leave a quarter.  I am an Aldi’s shopper and I know that many of you are also.  The next time you take your cart back, leave your quarter in the slot.  It’s a small gesture but it “pays it forward” in a BIG way.  


Looking forward to next week....get ready for Christmas Spirit Week RCW!  Monday is “Wear Hats & Scarves” Day.  Tuesday is “Wear Red & Green Day” and we will have a BLT meeting after school.  On Wednesday we will celebrate the season with our “Christmas Sweaters” and the staff party is after school at “The Castle!”  Thursday is “Dress as your Favorite Holiday Movie Character Day.”  Will you be the Grinch or perhaps Rudolph?  I need to work on my costume!  On Thursday our kindergarten and 2nd grade friends will journey to Riverview HealthCare Campus to entertain the residents with Christmas carols.  PBIS committee members will gather after school for a meeting Thursday afternoon.  Finally it’s Friday!  WOOHOOO!!  Friday is “PJ Day” and we will carol as a school family at 2:00 in the gym.  What a wonderful, exciting week we have ahead of us!


As we begin another beautiful day here at RCW, I will remind you to always be:

  • Ready

  • Responsible

  • Respectful



Now I will ask you to please stand tall and proud, place your right hand over your heart and say the Pledge of Allegiance with today’s leader.  After we finish with the Pledge, he will lead us in singing the Fight Song!  GO ROCKETS!
