Welcome Spring! We are excited to announce that construction for the ten classroom addition has begun! Stacey Enterprise, Inc. construction company has already begun to tear up sidewalk and push some dirt around. We anticipate the project will be completed by January 2014! The enrollment at Rocky Mountain Junior High continues to grow. The new addition will provide much needed space for our students. We are excited for this to be completed. Thank you to everyone who voted for the bond!
April brings about many exciting events for students. The counseling department will be holding the Reality Town Program for all 8th grade students on April 12th. Reality Town is an educational program that gives realistic financial experience to junior high and high school students. Students are given an occupation and a yearly salary based on their GPA. The students then walk through a simulation of buying a home, car, insurance, groceries etc. They must learn how to balance their budget and all of the events that happen in life. It is a great learning experience for students to help them understand the importance of education.
The annual 5k Fun Run will be held on April 6th at Fremont High School. This year the money raised at the Fun Run will be used to improve safety and security in the school. If you haven’t already signed up you can still sign up in the office or the morning of the race. Here are some other important dates to remember this month:
