DASH
The DASH will begin in the very near future!  We are really focusing on doing things the ROCKETS’ Way!  We had a class discussion about goal setting where we set goals that are specific, measurable, and attainable.  The students decided to set a goal of receiving 75 sponsors for our class.  We will be monitoring the number of sponsors/donations that children receive.  Please help our school raise money to purchase some cool interactive robots to assist students with problem solving through the STEAM process! 

Friday night, Oct. 10th  is Elementary School Appreciation Night and OCYFL Night at the NOHS vs. Monroe Area High School Football game. The game starts at 7:30pm.

Your students are invited to report to the home side track of our stadium at 6:45 pm where a cheerleader will great them and each school will be announced and honored. We are excited about recognizing our future Titans.
