    • If you don’t feel well, please stay home.
    • Schedule for January 24-28 - A, B, C, B, C
      • AcLab Tuesday, January 25 - Be sure to sign up on Monday, January 24.

      • ACT Prep Class:  The registration portal for the prep class for the April ACT test opened on Friday, January 14, 2022.  This five-week class begins on February 15, 2022 and runs through March 31, 2022. This class will fill fast since the all-district junior ACT test date is April 5, 2022, and there is a national test date on April 2, 2022 in which the Test Information Release (TIR) is available. Class information is available by clicking here.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email Mrs. Cheryl Hermach at hermachcheryl@rsdmo.org.
      • College Scholarships:  The College and Career Counseling Office is constantly receiving information about local and national scholarship opportunities.  For a list of those scholarships, please visit the College & Career website.  Students should also visit the scholarship pages of each of their desired institutions for additional college-specific scholarships.

        • DATE CHANGE:  The date for Senior Awards Night has been changed.  Senior Awards Night will take place on Tuesday, May 3, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. in the Theater.
      • Senior Year Event Costs:  Check out this document as you budget for senior year events.  Remember that the only required cost is your graduation fee of $60.00.
      • Attention Senior Parents/Guardians:  Please review the Lancer Parent Organization’s Senior Newsletter for information regarding upcoming Memory Maker and Senior Celebration events.
      • College Applications and Transcript Requests:  In order to request a transcript be sent to a college, students must fill out a Transcript Request Form. This form can also be found in the College & Career Office (Room 121). Keep in mind that the office asks for at least 10 processing days per request.  
      • College and Career Appointment Requests:  If a student would like to schedule an appointment with any member of the department, they can stop by the offices (rooms 121 and 123) or can request an appointment by filling out this form using his/her school login. **Please note that the College and Career Counselors reserve first semester appointments for seniors as they are working to complete college applications. 
    • Career Exploration Spring 2022 Now Live!  The spring application is now live for Career Exploration at www.rsdmo.org/Page/588.  If you are unfamiliar with Career Exploration through Rockwood's PIE Department, it is an opportunity for your high school student to spend a few hours during a school day shadowing a professional in a career that aligns with your student's current interests.  Typical experiences last between 2-4 hours, and students are responsible for providing their own transportation to and from the host site.  These opportunities will be available this spring between March 7-28 and March 28 - April 22, 2022.  

    The pulse behind this program is due to the emerging student loan crisis.  If we can help clarify a path for our students before they leave our high school campuses, hopefully that saves them time and money down the road. Other benefits for your student include accumulating A+ hours for the time spent shadowing and growing their professional network.   

    If you have any questions or want more details, please contact Matthew Schindler, schindlermatthew@rsdmo.org.

    This event is open to all but perfect for graduating seniors and recent grads considering college alternatives. The event takes place on three consecutive Saturdays, beginning February 26 at Eureka High School, North Tech on March 5, and South Tech on March 12.

    The 40 Developmental Assets® framework was created by Search Institute®, consisting of preventative measures, positive experiences, and qualities that young people need to grow up healthy, caring, and responsible. These assets are protective factors that have been consistently shown by research to buffer youth from risk. The more assets a child has, the less likely they are to be involved in behaviors such as teen pregnancy, school dropout, substance abuse, delinquency, or violence. Join us to learn about the 40 assets and how you can help youth develop them. Facebook event, too, so you can share it there: https://fb.me/e/23I4C90qe  Presented by Kristin Bengtson, Director of Community Strategy for PreventEd.  You can register at: linktr.ee/cpip

Please contact Lili Schiesser at schliesserlili@rsdmo.org for any questions. CPiP is a resource for all parents throughout the year. This group meets every month on the second Thursday of the month via zoom from 4 p.m.-5 p.m.  Feel free to reach out to Lili if you wish to volunteer or support the work they do. 
    • Free Opportunity from CHADS: Rockwood has brought on CHADS Coalition to provide “All in Conversations” the first Tuesday of each month in a virtual format. They are free and presented by Dr. Shannon Farris.  Dr. Farris is full of fantastic and helpful information and guidance in a judgment-free discussion. These monthly opportunities are incredibly valuable for all.  Again, they are FREE!!  These sessions can be joined by anyone in Rockwood School District and outside the district.  The zoom format provides an opportunity for cameras to be off and screen names changed to protect participants’ privacy.  Use this link to view the flyer and to register:  CHADS ZOOM Registration Flyer.
    • Please let us know if your child has been vaccinated.  As part of our Rockwood Safe Together mitigation efforts, the district has been encouraging all staff members and eligible students to get vaccinated to keep students and staff healthy and in school. We encourage all parents to work with their health care professionals to determine if the vaccine is right for their children. 

    Since the beginning of the school year, we have been asking employees to voluntarily share with us if they have received the COVID-19 vaccine, and we have been publishing those numbers on our district website. Now that all K-12 Rockwood students are eligible to receive the vaccine, we are requesting that parents voluntarily disclose when their child has been fully vaccinated so we can update their immunization records and have an accurate measure of how many students are vaccinated in our building.

    Originally, we asked parents to fill out an online form with the information. If you have already done so, we have that record. If you have not submitted the form, we ask that you take a photo of your child’s vaccination card and email it directly to our school nurse, Ms. Kristen Emms at emmskristen@rsdmo.org or Ms. Kayla Zimmer at zimmerkayla@rsdmo.org.

      • College Scholarships:  The College and Career Counseling Office is constantly receiving information about local and national scholarship opportunities.  For a list of those scholarships, please visit the College & Career website.  Students should also visit the scholarship pages of each of their desired institutions for additional college-specific scholarships. 

     

    • Career Exploration Spring 2022 Now Live!  The spring application is now live for Career Exploration at www.rsdmo.org/Page/588.  If you are unfamiliar with Career Exploration through Rockwood's PIE Department, it is an opportunity for your high school student to spend a few hours during a school day shadowing a professional in a career that aligns with your student's current interests.  Typical experiences last between 2-4 hours, and students are responsible for providing their own transportation to and from the host site.  These opportunities will be available this spring between March 7-28 and March 28 - April 22, 2022.  

     

    The pulse behind this program is due to the emerging student loan crisis.  If we can help clarify a path for our students before they leave our high school campuses, hopefully that saves them time and money down the road. Other benefits for your student include accumulating A+ hours for the time spent shadowing and growing their professional network.

    • Rockwood Safe Together - Pediatric Vaccination Information:  As part of our Rockwood Safe Together mitigation efforts, we have been encouraging all staff members and eligible students to get vaccinated to keep students and staff healthy and in school.  Now that all Rockwood students are eligible to receive the vaccine, we are requesting that parents voluntarily disclose* when their child has been fully vaccinated.  This is strictly voluntary, but it will save everyone valuable time in contact tracing. As a reminder, those who are fully vaccinated are not subject to quarantine if they are determined to be a close contact with a positive case, as long as they are not exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms.  Providing your child’s vaccine information will also help us have a measure of vaccination rates within our school community and guide how Rockwood might adjust our policies to promote a safe learning and working environment.

     

    This information is secure and will be accessible only by contact tracers with a need to know.  Again, this is strictly voluntary!  Even if you have already submitted this information to your school nurse in conjunction with contact tracing, we ask that you upload it via this new form so we have all the information in one place. 

    *Please note:  Rockwood is utilizing a new form provider, and we have information posted on our website about how to log in the first time.

      • “Ending the Silence” NAMI Health Class Presentations:  The Rockwood Partners in Education (PIE) office invited The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) to Lafayette Health classes to present “Ending the Silence” on October 27 and 28. “Ending the Silence” is an engaging presentation that helps audience members learn about the warning signs of mental health conditions and what steps to take if you or a loved one are showing symptoms of a mental health condition. These presentations included two leaders: one who shares an informative presentation and a young adult with a mental health condition who shares their journey of recovery. Audience members can ask questions and gain understanding of an often-misunderstood topic. At the end of the class presentations, students were provided an opportunity to reflect, share, and ask questions. Lafayette High counselors were available for additional support to students who self-identified as feeling as though they needed to speak with a trusted adult regarding them or someone they know struggling with mental health issues.  More information and resources about NAMI St. Louis can be found here.
