October 2023 – At A Glance

Posted October 3, 2023

Hello Dragon Families,

October has arrived with a whirlwind of activity. With fall in full swing, the month is bustling with exciting events. Cross-country will have students lacing up their running shoes, ready to conquer the challenging course at Rockwood and test their endurance. Meanwhile, Jean Little will throw open our doors for Open House (Oct 5), welcoming parents and visitors to showcase achievements and plans for the year ahead. And, of course, the anticipation is building for the annual Dance-A-Thon, where feet will tap to the rhythm of music, raising funds for a noble cause. As the leaves change and temperatures drop, October promises a busy but vibrant calendar of events.
