Jump for the Gym!

The PSP will be kicking off our Jump for the Gym fundraiser! The Phil Spears Gymnasium has provided us wonderful new space for P.E., school events, and our middle school athletics program. However, there are so many more ways we could utilize this space, for instance, for music and theater performances. Our goal is to raise $40,000 to fund sound equipment, stage lighting, stage curtains, and a floor cover to protect the beautiful new floor. Look for the flyer and pledge form attached to the Gazette!

Save the Date: Concert in the Park!

We are revamping our Core Knowledge Showcase (on May 11) to be focused on the classroom and our art program, and are planning an incredible all-school event at Johnson-Springview Park to bring families together to celebrate our growing music program! All students will have an opportunity to perform Core Knowledge music selections, and our evening will end with our band and choir students. Food will be served, games will be played, and music will be enjoyed. Save the date for Thursday, May 18, for this wonderful all-school end of year celebration. More information about both events will be provided soon.

Run Rocklin

The Matt Redding Foundation presents the 14th Annual Run Rocklin 5K – 12K – Half Marathon Free Kids Run on Sunday April 2, 2017 at Johnson-Springview Regional Park. We have created a team under “Rocklin Academy Gateway” for families and staff and have an opportunity to raise funds for our school. We need a team of 20 paid participants and our school will receive a $5.00 donation per paid participant from Run Rocklin. Each year, Run Rocklin has a School Team Challenge and awards the top three school teams having the highest number of paid participants in the event. Registration for our Rocklin Academy Gateway team is now open and we encourage your participation and look forward to a great turnout. To learn more about the event, please visit

Lunch Orders

We are changing some of our lunch procedures to help our nutritional services department run more smoothly and efficiently. The details are noted below.

• Orders for lunch need to be received the MONDAY (not Tuesday) prior to the week for which you are ordering lunch for your student(s). Orders for lunch are done through a Google form available on our website on the Nutritional Services Page.

• Payments may be made through our School Payment Portal also found on our Nutritional Services page of our Rocklin Academy Gateway website. Payment may also be made in our main office. If your child qualifies and participates in the Free and Reduced lunch program, you still need to place your orders one week prior along with payment if one is required.

• Cash payments are only accepted in the office. If you would like your child to be able to purchase milk to go with their home brought lunch, please put funds onto their lunch account for this purpose. Cash sales will not be accepted for this purpose beginning on Monday, December 5th.

If you need to contact the nutritional services department, they can be reached via email at

Report Absences on the Rocklin Academy Gateway App!

You can receive notification of important events and reminders and have access to all the information you need right at your fingertips! By using the app, you can now report absences, order and pay for lunches, read the Gator Gazette, sign up for volunteer opportunities all from the convenience of your phone!

Placer County Food Bank Drive -THANK YOU

Thank you for the amazing support during the food drive. It was so momentous to deliver hundreds of cans of food and a total of 136 turkeys to support the greater Placer County. Our students were so excited to show compassion and generosity to others.

If your child is absent, please call the office by 8:30am at (916)778-4550 x845 or email the day your child is absent. If you know your child will be out for more than one day (i.e., due to fever, flue, diagnosis, travel, ect.), please state how many days you expect them to be absent.
