News & Events
Each year we have a special evening before students go home for Thanksgiving vacation where the whole school community comes together to share songs, poems, and thoughts of all the things for which we are grateful. It’s a wonderful time to be together and reflect on the values and goals that bind this community together and make us proud to be a part of Rock Point School … and it’s followed by some delicious food!
This year’s service was particularly sweet. We sang together a bit less off-key than usual, our statements of gratitude were particularly heart-felt, and we were doubly blessed by a dinner made by our very own Farm-to-School program. What a great way to head into vacation.
Congratulations to all of our fabulous runners!
Building a catapult was an exciting time for all of us! It was great to learn about forces and materials with a hands-on application. We didn’t achieve the launch velocity we were hoping for … but even that was a good lesson about the real trial-and-error nature of applied science.
This spring … a trebuchet?
