Crossing Guard Training at Rockledge
Beginning on April 7, the Crossing Guard Bureau will be training newly hired Crossing Guards at crossings used by Rockledge. There will be a certified instructor with trainees at all times. We have been asked to be patient during the weeks following April 7 as traffic may be impacted during the training period. As always, student safety is our top priority!
Bike Rodeo Coming March 28!
The Rockledge PTA, PWCPS, and Together Counts will be hosting a Bike Rodeo to kick off Spring Break! It will be held on March 28, at Rockledge, from 8am-11am.

Come on out while we encourage students to be active and at the same time learn basic bicycle safety, maintenance and some rules of the road. We look forward to seeing you there!

Reminder about Morning Drop-off Time
As it has been cold this winter, especially in the mornings, please make sure your child does not arrive before 8:50 am and they are dressed for the weather. School does not begin until 9:00 am; students should not be at school prior to 8:50 am as there is no supervision before this time. Please refer to the PWCS Elementary Guide and Calendar, page 21, Arrival at School, for more information.

PEP
Parents as Educational Partners (PEP) is a parent outreach program coordinated by Central Registration for grades K-12. It is designed to empower parents and guardians of English language learners (ELLs) to become involved in school decisions regarding their children's education. Sessions highlight the English language necessary for the home-school connection. Components of the program include:
  • Orientation to the PWCS educational system
  • Information on school procedures
  • Strategies to support academic success
  • The sharing of information on educational systems from heritage countries
PEP classes will be held at Rockledge every Wednesday afternoon from 4:00 - 6:00pm during February and March.
Free Online Reading For Children
How would you like your child to always have something to read, for FREE?   There are several ways to do this without leaving home.  First, if your child does not have a Public Library Card, get one for them.  An application is available on the website.  The card is free, and if you have internet access you can go to the Public Library's webpage and find lots of books and resources that can be accessed from the comfort of your own home.  On the left of the website, found at http://www.pwcgov.org/government/dept/library/Pages/default.aspx,
there are two resources that are particularly helpful.  The first link is eAudiobooks and eBooks where you will find books that can be “downloaded/checked out” to your computer OR digital device, for a week or two. Click on Overdrive and the last column at the top takes you to fiction and nonfiction titles for children.
A second link to explore is the Online Resources and under that click on Electronic Resources.  There is an incredible wealth of online products for both children and adults that the Prince William County Library makes available at no charge to its patrons.  If your child does not have a library card, please, please consider getting them one and take a little time to explore the online portion of our fabulous Prince William County Public Library from your own home!


 
Rockledge Elementary Designated 2014 School of Excellence

Our students have the distinction of attending a newly named PWCS School of Excellence. This is the 13th year Rockledge has earned the coveted title.

School of Excellence is the highest recognition awarded to schools by the PWCS School Board. It signifies high levels of performance on state accreditation, Annual Measurable Objectives, and in moving toward the goals of the Division's Strategic Plan.

Congratulations to everyone who helped to earn this important indicator of student success.
