Spirit Day- Friday, Sept 20th is school spirit day here at Rolesville. Please wear your school colors on that day. The school store will be open to purchase any spirit wear you may need.
Reflections- The PTA Reflections Program invites all students to create works of art for fun and recognition. This year’s theme is "believe, dream, inspire".

Early Release - We will be having our first early release event at the end of the month. It will be held at Granite Falls Swim and Athletic Club from 1:30 to 8pm. So mark your calendars for Friday, Sept 27th. An invitation will be sent home the week of early release. The invitation will need to be presented for admission. Kona Ice will also be there serving and part of the proceeds will go back to our school.
Additionally, parents I want to share some general reminders to ensure the safety of our students. It is important that everyone sign in whenever you come in the building and get a new visitor badge each time. Carpool parents please help us by practicing your carpool number with your child, staying in the lanes and not driving through the middle of cars, and practicing patience as we have over 100 students using carpool this year. Parents of students riding the buses, please make sure you are at the stop for students in grades K and 1. We plan to create a Twitter account, where we will twit out real time information when buses have left our campus. Please plan to follow us on our Twitter. Information will come out this week regarding our Twitter account.
This concludes the cougar weekly update for Sept. 16-20, 2013. This message can be viewed on our Rolesville Elementary website under Paw Prints from the Principal tab.
