Greetings Ketcham Nation!
We have come to the end of the first quarter and our school year is moving swiftly. First quarter grades are available in Parent Portal and we are proud of the progress our students are making this year.
We were so thrilled with the incredible performances of Romeo & Juliet by RCK Masque & Mime last weekend. The amount of talent and dedication in this group continues to amaze us!
Thanksgiving Recess is Nov. 22-24 and school reopens Nov. 27. Our administration is thankful for our students, staff, faculty, families and all those in the RCK community who make this truly the best school it can be!
Earlier this month, our Board of Education approved the renaming of our mascot as RCK Storm. We appreciate all of the support and patience of our student body, faculty, staff and community as we navigate through this exciting change. We love that our students are so willing to support each other and that our families feel the spirit of our message - All In. All Ways - and that we get there All Together.
As you know, some of our school families were affected by two devastating fires. If you would like more information on how to help with fundraising efforts, please check our social media as well as that of local firehouses, businesses and the Village of Wappingers Falls.
RCK Family Circle will host a special presentation all about Financial Aid. Please join us in the cafeteria on Monday, Nov. 27 at 7pm for this free, informative event.
We hope that you will continue to encourage your student to get involved at school and attend the programs provided by our clubs as well as school-wide events. We will continue to post details in the daily announcements and online.
As December nears, we want to remind you of a few things:
--Our delay bell schedule can be found on our website. Please make note of this schedule as any delays will be announced via e-mail, district phone calls, texts and online.
--Yearbook deadlines are coming up so it is best to order online as soon as possible. Seniors are also encouraged to submit their childhood photos, quotes and other senior exclusives. Details are on the Yearbook website: https://sites.google.com/wcsdny.org/rck-yearbook/home
Wishing you and yours a Thanksgiving full of good things.
The mission of the Wappingers Central School District is to empower all of our students with the competencies and confidence to challenge themselves, to pursue their passions, and to realize their potential while growing as responsible members of their community.
