Attention: Current 6th, 7th and 8th graders! Have you ever wanted to help your community but get stuck trying to figure out how? Come spend a week with us, during the Helping Hands Service Camp, June 10–15, 2024, from 9:00 a.m.–2:00 p.m. at Wilbur Pence Middle School. This camp will be filled with fun and fulfilling service projects. We will help feed the hungry, make and deliver items to a local animal shelter, build and paint bookshelves for a local service group, and make blankets for people in need (just to name a few). We’ll even host a cleanup at the river, and of course, enjoy a splash or two ourselves! There are so many opportunities, we can’t list them all here, but we can guarantee it will be a great week if you join us! Sign up at https://forms.gle/zBU2j2DtDzqHiFuo9. Email jlmiller@rockingham.k12.va.us with questions

RCPS will dismiss students at 1:00 pm on Monday, April 8, 2024. As you may know, on that day, a total solar eclipse will be visible in North America. In our area, the eclipse will begin around 2:00 pm and end about 5:30 pm. The weather forecast calls for a sunny day, and we are concerned for the safety of our students, as the maximum solar eclipse will occur at 3:17 pm. On a regular school day, many students would be traveling home on our school buses at this time. We want to ensure they are fully supervised during the solar eclipse so they are not tempted to look at the sun, which can be harmful to the eyes.

Dear Parents & Families, We're thrilled to introduce a new feature in our district app called Rooms! This platform is designed for seamless communication between staff and families, making it easier than ever to stay informed about school updates and activities. As we roll out this new tool, we're starting with a small group of teachers, all spring sports coaches, and our Middle School and High School Principals. While not all staff members will immediately transition to using Rooms as their primary communication tool, we're moving in that direction and aim to have full implementation by the beginning of the 2024-2025 school year. Stay tuned for more information and resources as we continue the rollout. Effective communication is essential to our school community's success, and we're excited to embark on this journey with you through Rooms!
