Winter Concert

Maryann Spiess and Shari McQueen produced an amazing Winter Concert with our 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students this week! This show was a fantastic tribute to their talents and expertise as music teachers. The choir songs were not simple pieces, and they were so unique to the season. Their voices were spectacular altogether, and they performed flawlessly. The band performed their songs with precision and grace. Maryann and Shari, we thank you for your commitment and dedication to our music program, and for putting in so much time in giving our students an opportunity to shine! Thank you to all of our amazingly supportive families as well. This show would not have been possible without you! We would also like to thank Mr. Hanson and our custodial staff for their contribution and hard work.

Core Knowledge

Rocklin Academy’s Core Knowledge curriculum offers students the opportunity to gain a deep understanding of a variety of social studies and science curriculum topics. Our teachers work diligently each week to incorporate interactive and technology based activities that enhance the learning of Core Knowledge topics and subjects. Over the past month, we challenged teachers to put their Core Knowledge learning into action and were amazed at what we observed our students working on.

Our fantastic second grade team invited the Mandarin Dance Team, from Western Sierra Collegiate Academy, to visit our school campus and perform a traditional ceremonial dance. This fascinating assembly brought our student’s learning of Early Civilizations in Asia to life. In fourth grade, students were practicing note taking and comprehension skills by viewing an engaging video clip about Songhai (A Medieval African Kingdom) and then asked to transfer their learning onto a graphic organizer. Third grade students were creating digital media slides to demonstrate their understanding of animals groups and taxonomy. Fifth grade writing and art is proudly hung on walls and windows showcasing student knowledge of Early European Exploration and Meso-American Civilizations.

These are only a few examples of the hands on and meaningful learning opportunities happening in every classroom on campus. We are very proud of our teachers hard work in planning and preparing such engaging activities that seamlessly blend structured content learning, with hands on projects. We know that these activities allow students to demonstrate their understanding of content in a variety of ways and foster creativity and highlight their 21st century technology skills. Our students' hard work and dedication to growth and learning can be seen throughout the grade levels and classrooms on a daily basis. At Rocklin Academy, we love our rich Core Knowledge curriculum and the many opportunities it allows our students to have and experience each and every day at school!

Arrival and Dismissal

We would like to take a moment to review traffic expectations for dismissal. It is absolutely imperative that our families follow the specific dismissal windows as to not cause congestions in the business park. Please arrive in the parking lot at the designated time frame for your child(ren)’s schedule. If you do arrive early, please park in a parking lot space that is part of our campus not that of the surrounding businesses. • Arrive in the business park only during your scheduled pick-up and drop-off window. Early arrivals cause unnecessary congestion in the business park. If you are early, please park appropriately in a parking spot and wait for your pick-up window to begin. Staff will be asking early arrivers to park to avoid the back up into the business park. Thank you for your cooperation and commitment to keeping all of our students safe, and for helping us foster positive relationships within our business park community!
