Dear Rondout Families, Friends and Faculty,

Happy March… This week we welcomed meteorological spring. We look forward to the arrival of the vernal equinox and astronomical spring arriving on March 20th. We are excited about the longer days, added sunshine and warmer temperatures. We will be launching a special school wide gardening project creating mini greenhouses out of plastic milk jugs. Please save your empty gallon milk jugs. If you could please send them to school clean and with the caps on that would be helpful. We will share more about this exciting project in the weeks ahead. The empty milk jug collection will begin now and go through the Friday before Spring Break. We need "a lot" of milk jugs so check with your family, friends and neighbors. Please feel free to contact us if you have questions.

We hope to see many of you at tomorrow’s Family Day of Service. We have an exciting morning planned from 10 to 12 here at Rondout with guests from Orphans of Storm included both 2 and 4 legged friends.  You are welcome to join even if you did not RSVP. Children do need to be accompanied by an adult. It should be a fun morning working together to make a difference.  Donations of food, pet toys and newspapers will be accepted tomorrow also.

Report cards will be arriving in your mailboxes next week.  We hope you find them informative and helpful. We are so proud of the great progress our students have made this trimester. Feel free to reach out to your child’s teachers should you have any questions.

Have a wonderful weekend. Until next time... Take care...

Rondout Family Day of Service

Saturday March 4, 2023

10 a.m. to 12 noon

All Rondout Families Welcome

Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Grades 4-8 Brush Cutting

Friday, March 10th 2023

On Friday, we ask that all students in grades 4-8 wear long pants, and have a pair of boots at school, in addition to coats, hats, etc. This event will be weather dependent and will be rescheduled if the weather does not cooperate. Students who do not have the appropriate attire, including boots, will have an alternate activity during their scheduled outdoor time.

Special Seniors Day Returns to Rondout!

Mark your calendars for Friday, April 28th! 

For one day each spring, the population at Rondout doubles. That day, we open the doors and welcome special guests for Special Seniors Day, an event that recognizes and celebrates the special relationships and interactions between generations, and the desire for multigenerational interaction as part of our children’s education. The goal of the program is to give students a chance to bond with their special guest at school.

The event is a collaboration between the PTSA and teachers, school administration, and the community. Proud grandparents, aunts, uncles, godparents and family friends have flown in from as far away as Los Angeles. Parents play a critical role in Special Senior’s Day (see below).  Because of this, parents are encouraged to find someone other than themselves, but if they want to be special guests, that’s OK.

RSVP Early!

We want to personalize this event as much as possible!  To do that, we need to capture the names of each Special Guest visiting Rondout.  There are 2 ways you can RSVP:

  • Electronically, through an e-invitation - Invitations were emailed to Rondout families on Friday, February 17th. In case the invite went to your spam, here is the URL: https://www.punchbowl.com/parties/7232fd1b275fed322817
  • Paper RSVP, via Backpack Mail - Fill out the RSVP form attached to the Falcon Flyer and send it to school in your child’s backpack.
