Student "behind bars" for Jail n' Bail Fundraiser

The Annual Dollars for Scholars Jail 'n Bail will be taking place on February 1st at RHS. Jail n Bail is a major fundraiser for Dollars for Scholars in which ROCORI junior and senior students contact family and friends through calling, text and email to raise their bail. The students raise their bail (pledges) between January 23 – February 1. On February 1 they will finalize their pledges and submit them while at the same time enjoying local business donations of food, snacks and door prizes throughout the event. The proceeds from Jail n Bail will go toward scholarships for the 2019 seniors who plan to pursue a post- secondary education. All seniors and juniors are invited to participate in this fundraiser. Members of the DFS committee will be speaking to juniors and seniors during homeroom on January 23 about Jail 'n Bail. There will also be drawings for additional scholarships for those collecting over $350 in pledges. Juniors and seniors participating in this event and other DFS events throughout the year will be included in an additional drawing for a $500 scholarship. Watch future newsletters for additional information.

Dear Parents/ Guardians of the Class of 2032!

Your child's academic journey starts now, and we are excited to have your family join the ROCORI tradition of excellence.  We invite your child to become a Spartan at the ROCORI All District Kindergarten Registration, which will be held on Tuesday, February 26th from 3:30-6:30 p.m. at Cold Spring Elementary. This opportunity is for all parents and students who will be 5 years of age by September 1, 2019. This is an important time to introduce you and your child to the program and help to answer questions as your child begins his or her academic career.

Kindergarten is offered in an All-Day/Every-Day format.  This program is tuition free and fully funded by the State of Minnesota! If your child will participate in the school lunch program, there is a fee for lunch.

Birthday Ideas for Parents

In an effort to comply with new wellness policy requirements, model healthy behavior, be more equitable and conscious of allergies, ROCORI Schools will no longer be celebrating children's birthdays with birthday treats. Teachers and staff will continue to recognize your child's special day. This will be done through special activities and projects, recognition, etc. If your family would still like to send 'birthday treats', we are asking that they be non-food items. Below is a list of suggestions. Please do not feel obligated to send anything, this is only if you wish to.
