April Deadlines and Events

Dear Parents,

Weather! What more should be said about our recent weather other than an exclamation point. On Wednesday afternoon the hail started as students were walking to the gym for dismissal. It was very loud under the walkway. Students remained in the gym until the hail stopped and then we started dismissal procedures. Storms are predicted again for tomorrow (Friday). Please join me in praying that the storms hold off until after dismissal!

Rock Creek Elementary and Junior Academy students raised over $1,000 in cash and gift cards through the Buckets of Bucks project for Indiana families devastated by the tornados. These funds will be delivered to Christian Academy of Indiana next week. Thank you for supporting our effort to help others.

PTO Plant Sale – Orders Due April 2
Spring is in the air! As you notice the dogwood and redbud trees blooming, are you thinking about planting your annual flowers? Rock Creek PTO has the answer for you! This fundraiser has provided our campus with a profit of around $5,000 annually in the past, and we are very grateful. Please download the order form here or pick one up in the office. Be sure to pass it along to friends, family, and coworkers. The plants will be delivered to Rock Creek for pick up on Thursday, April 26. Thank you for promoting and supporting the Plant Sale.

Wednesday, April 4 - Blossoming the Cross Chapel – 8:30-9:15 a.m.
Blossoming the Cross is a special Chapel tradition at Rock Creek. The cross, a symbol of cruelty and violence becomes a symbol of beauty, hope, and eternal life. The Blossomed Cross depicts Christ’s triumph over death and sin. You are invited to join us at Chapel as we raise the Blossomed Cross. Students should bring a silk flower to school by Tuesday, April 3, which they will place on the cross.

  • April 6-13      Good Friday and Spring Break
  • April 20          CAL T-shirt Day
  • April 23-27    Achievement Testing Week

Blessings to you,

Maribeth Thomas | Rock Creek Principal
