RHPCS Families,
I’m not sure what it is about this time of year but tardiness suddenly becomes more pervasive, like weeds in the lawn that is just starting to green up for Spring.  More than 25 students arrived late to school this morning… that nearly 10% of our school population!  Please accept this as my friendly Springtime reminder that being on time to school continues to be important all year!  So, set that alarm clock a few minutes earlier, make sure it is turned ON, and don’t be tempted by that snooze button!

At Rolling Hills, we consider punctuality an important life skill. Students are expected to line up with their class at 7:55 a.m.  Academic instruction begins in RHPCS classrooms begins immediately at 8:00 a.m.. 
·         Students not in class by 8:00 a.m. will be considered tardy.
·         Students who arrive after 8:05 are required to sign-in on the tardy sheet at the front office before heading to class.  Not signing in at the office may result in the student being counted absent all day in error.
At Rolling Hills Charter, we maintain high expectations for student attendance and punctuality.  The primary reasons for our focus on punctuality include:

·         Educational Benefits – Instruction in Rolling Hills’ classrooms begins promptly at 8:00 a.m. –we really do “hit the ground running”.  Students who arrive to class late miss important directions and learning opportunities.  Getting a late arrival up to speed is disruptive to teacher and the progress of the class as a whole.
·         Employability - Employers desire employees who will arrive to work every day, on time, and ready to work.  We believe that setting this expectation for our students helps create a habit for work dependability and reliability that will serve them well beyond school.
As always, feel free to contact me with questions or concerns.

Valentine's and 100 Day of Kindergarten Celebration!

It is almost time for our Valentine’s party. The party will be held on WEDNESDAY, FEB. 14. We will enjoy treats and pass out Valentine’s cards. Here is some important info:
·       There are 23 students in the class.
·       If your child is making valentine cards, PLEASE ONLY WRITE WHO THE VALENTINE IS FROM. It takes FOREVER if they try to read the name of who they are to.
·       Please make a valentine for EVERY student.
·       Please send valentine’s in the day of the party.
·       Do NOT worry about making a box at home. We will make Valentine’s bags in the classroom. If you would like to send stickers or other decorations, we would greatly appreciate it.
·       If you would like to bring a treat, please contact me beforehand (this is not required).


One of my favorite days of the year is the day we get to celebrate 100 DAYS OF KINDERGARTEN. I would love some help with supplies for our 100 Day Trail Mix.
Please send in the item that had your child’s name next to it by FRIDAY, FEB. 9th.

Thank you so much for pitching in!
