Teacher Appreciation Week Is Here!

Choose one (or more) of these options to show our teachers and staff how thankful we are for them:
  • Email a thank you note or photo (please consider copying Principal Hodges, as she loves to read these).
  • Drop off a card or coloring sheet (make sure to indicate whom it's for) in the drop box located in front of the school on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, or Friday the week of November 30.
  • Record a Flipgrid message using the links below (log in with your student's LWSD email or use guest password rosehillrocks!).
