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: Welcome to the 2023-24 School Year

  • Red Rocks is a community of high expectations, from our families and staff. Our team is excited to move forward into 23-24 as we build upon the strengths of the past year. We are digging into the results of student data and look to improve our instruction as well as craft the strong student culture that has become part of our regular "Red Rocks Promise." Stay tuned for more! 
  • Start Time change: 7:35 drop off, 7:45 bell is a big change! We will be like orchestras and sports teams and do three things to get school running smoothly: practice, practice, practice!  
  • Red Rocks is a culture of staff unity. We said goodbye to some outstanding educators and welcome a new batch of all-stars this year. Watch your emails for updates. 
  • July and August bring hope!  This summer I got a chance to teach some K-2 students some mini science lessons, and I felt 20 years younger!  
  • The 2023-24 teacher theme is "Burn Bright" --an invitation to curiosity! Look for tidbits during the year on inventions and the power of curiosity for our staff and students. 
  • Got questions? Reach out! We are hear to serve our community. Go Raccoons! --Mr. I
