Welcome Back!

Thank you all for coming out to Open House today! It was so great meeting each of you and your sweet children! I know all of the information can be overwhelming, but please take the time to read over everything and return all of the paperwork in your child’s folder as soon as you can. Our blogs will be updated by the end of each week and will be your best friend when it comes to obtaining resources to help your child succeed in first grade this year.
Homework Assignment
Don't forget to complete your All About Me homework assignment.  Please fill the brown paper sack with no more than 5 items to tell your classmates about you.  Please make sure that ALL items fit in the bag!  I can't wait to learn more about you!
Power School
Please be sure your address is up to date on Power School. This is very important to ensure your child is picked up and dropped off at the correct location if they use the bus as transportation. Also, please keep in mind that bus schedules may be off for the first few days of school while our bus drivers get used to their new routes.
Lunch Menu
Our lunch menu can be found on the Rocky Branch webpage. It will be updated online each month. If you do not have internet access, please let me know.
Remind 101
Be sure to download the Remind 101 app to receive text reminders throughout the year.  Follow the instructions provided in the blue folder at Open House.
Volunteer Training
Georgia law regarding volunteers in non-profit organizations establishes that all volunteers are now mandated reporters. In order for all volunteers to understand the law and know the reporting protocols, volunteer training regarding the new mandated reporter law will be provided. Below are the dates for the RBES volunteer training. If you plan to volunteer or visit in a classroom (this includes attending class parties, field day, working with students, etc.) you MUST attend one of the volunteer training dates with Mrs. Wages.
