What is the Principal Reading?

For kids: One Book One Red Rocks annual summer reading is here! I will be reading The Beatryce Prophecy by Kate DiCamillo (Common Sense book review is here)   I also recommend reading Newbery Medal and Honor Books,so it might be time to review the list! 

For Adults:  My brother is a principal and he recommended The Six Conversations. It is a powerful reminder about connecting. Our professional culture continues to be anchored to many of the principles found in Dare to Lead by Brene Brown and other leadership texts. Latest leadership reading: FYI: For Your Improvement by Lombardo and Eichinger.


From Mr. Isaac:  May Happenings: 

  • Red Rocks is a culture of giving. Special thanks to our PTA, volunteers, and staff who made the Carnival possible. Our community is better because we come together! 
  • Life Change Alert! Dynamic DC Trip is Happening Now.  Each year Red Rocks 5th graders engage on a life-changing trip to Washington DC led by our staff and parent chaperones. Amongst the thousands of students who visit DC from all over our country and our world, tour guides tell us that Red Rocks stands out–our kids and staff get deep into the vision of America and understanding our history as we tour monuments and explore special connections. 
    • What actions can K-4 families take now?  Ask a family who attended about the impact of the DC trip. Start planning for the trip now, and while fundraising occurs each year, families benefit from early planning. 
    • Please join me in thanking Mr. Moore and Mr. Patterson for their ongoing leadership of this exemplary and life-changing trip and for the staff and families who make this possible. 
  • Red Rocks is a culture of staff unity.  Each year some staff get reassigned and we say hello and goodbye.  Please see the separate email for staffing updates and take time to honor the team that serves our students so well. 
  • May brings traffic! Heads up about concert season, and check out the graduation times that may clog up downtown traffic.
