Dear Parents,

Our school has a subscription to BrainPOP, an award-winning educational website we trust because it delivers reliable content on topics I’m teaching your children. As part of that subscription, your family has access to BrainPOP, too!

Each month, BrainPOP shares ideas and activities for using BrainPOP at home around a timely topic. This month is Computer Programming! Sign up to receive tips for watching the Computer Programming movie together and activities to extend understanding of computer programming concepts.

Please follow directions for students who do not use Google Classroom.

It’s a year of change for Black Rock Elementary School with old friends moving to a new school. Many of those moving away have been a big part of helping our school and we have some holes to fill. If one of these volunteer opportunities looks interesting to you please contact Ashley McCool at for more information. Please remember that we can’t run these events without volunteers.

Jog-A-Thon: This is our school’s main fundraiser to pay for paraprofessionals in each grade and it is held at the beginning of the school year. Most planning occurs over the summer.

Spirit Wear: Designing, ordering, and arranging sales of Black Rock shirts. Sales occur several times a year.

SHINE: The school variety show occurs in early 2019. Help is needed on three nights: auditions, rehearsal, and at the event.

Restaurant Nights: Over the summer restaurants are contacted and dates are set up, then monthly reminders are sent out throughout the school year.

Staff Appreciation: The PTO arranges a week of surprises for the staff at the end of the year.
We are so lucky at Black Rock to have incredible businesses that support us. Please help us return the favor by supporting their businesses!

Reporting an Absence

Avoid unexcused absences or tardies by notifying the office as soon as you know your student won't be at school at the start of the school day

We have three ways to report an absence at Black Rock:

When your student is late or returning during the school day, please be sure to have a responsible adult sign that student in at the front office, to ensure that attendance is recorded correctly.
