Week of December 7-11

 Hello Trailblazer Families, 

We hope you and your families had a nice break and a Happy Thanksgiving. Students are going strong with their learning on site and in our Champions Academy. Our students are doing an incredible job on site of wearing masks, following our procedures and exhibiting our 7 Habits. I am so proud of them and their hard work!

We had a Village Meeting on Thursday within our own classrooms. Our students reviewed Habit #3: Make Priorities Matter and did some fun activities. Students did an activity in which they completed some work very fast and then took time to slow down and put in their best effort. We learned it's often times best to slow down and do our best the first time!!

Linked below are the 7 Habits we discuss at Diamond Creek. Over the school year, we will spend time each month reviewing one of the 7 Habits along with the essentials that align with each Habit.

Feel free to print and use these posters at home as well.

Hello RCSD Families,

  

The Annual Household Eligibility Form (or Free and Reduced Meal program) is more important than you might think.

 

The Free Meal Program typically provides assistance to those who qualify, and even though meals are free for all students for this school year, we are asking you to please take a moment and fill out Annual Household Eligibility Form online at https://www.rcsdk8.org/annual-household-eligibility-form. The application is due by December 15, 2020.

 

By taking time to fill out this form, it allows our District to potentially capture funds lost by the lack of forms filled out to date. If you have already completed a Meal Application for the 2020-2021 school year, please also complete this form.

 

The number of students that qualify for the Free and Reduced Meal program impacts many services and programs that RCSD offers families. 

 

Our students and schools are at risk of losing 23% of the supplemental grant funding that supports those programs due to the lack of applications submitted to date. 

 

This 1-minute video explains more about the form and the funding that goes along with this form.

 

The supplemental grant supports:

  • Mental & Health Services - help fund school counselors and health aides.

  • Class size reduction - help fund smaller class sizes in Transitional Kindergarten and 4-5 grades.

  • Foster youth and homeless services - help fund resources for both foster youth students and students experiencing homelessness.

  • Music & Elementary PE - funds a portion of the teachers’ salaries for these programs. 

  • AVID and IB programs - help to fund school sites that have AVID and IB programs.

  • Technology - help to ensure students and staff have internet connectivity.

  • Intervention Services - help fund staffing for intervention teachers and other intervention support providers.

  • World Language Program - help fund world language teachers at all four of our middle schools.

We appreciate your time and continued support.

 

Thank you,

 

The Roseville City School District
