Election Day is less than two weeks away. I want to let you know that Rockwood has Prop T on the April ballot to address increasing enrollment, class sizes and our continued support for STEM and innovative learning.
WHEN IS THE ELECTION?
Tuesday, April 4, 2017. Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
WHERE CAN I VOTE?
Just prior to Election Day, each registered voter will receive a postcard from the Election Office designating the polling place for the voter. You can find your polling place at www.stlouisco.com/YourGovernment/Elections.
HOW MANY “YES” VOTES ARE REQUIRED FOR THE BOND ISSUE TO PASS?
The Constitution of the State of Missouri requires a four-sevenths (57.14%) majority for passage of the bond issue.
WHERE MAY I FIND OUT MORE ABOUT THE BOND ISSUE?
You can visit the Prop T website: www.rsdmo.org/PropT. Plus, view the latest Super Talks video where our own Rockwood students interview Superintendent Dr. Eric Knost regarding STEM education.
If you have questions about Prop T, please give me a call.
In this week's Super Talks, Eureka High School journalism students interview Rockwood Superintendent Dr. Eric Knost and share their questions about Prop T.
Watch the video and see what they have to say about the construction of a new elementary school to address increasing enrollment and class sizes.
Coming Soon! Next week in Super Talks, we’ll hear from Rockwood South students who have questions about the expansion of the one-to-one technology program. Learn more about the projects on Prop T.
Super Talks: Rockwood Superintendent Eric Knost shares Prop T information with our community. "We've been working hard the last three years to balance our budgets and be fiscally responsible," says Dr. Knost. "Now we are aware of 2,300 homes being built in the district in the coming years. Prop T will not raise the current tax rate and will address increasing enrollment and our continued support for STEM/innovative learning in the Rockwood School District." http://bit.ly/2l7ONMg #RSDPropT

Student Hannah Molskness says, "She always comes up with new ways to make class fun while we are learning. Also, she is always there in a time of need when I need someone to talk to. She will forever be one of my favorite teachers." Sanjana Kumar added, "She is always available to talk with current and past students. She makes you look forward to attending class and uses humor to help students relate to history." And Hannah Wozniak chimed in with, "Because she always makes learning fun and pushes you to strive to become better. I always know that I can talk to her about an academic or personal issue and she will always be there to help me through it."
Wow-much love for a great teacher. Congrats, Brittany!

Our Rockwood School Board has approved a bond issue for the April 4 ballot. Named Prop T, the bond issue would not raise the current Rockwood tax rate. It would address increases in student enrollment due to new housing developments under construction. Plus, it also supports our Rockwood students through innovative learning spaces and STEM education.
Some Prop T projects include the construction of a new elementary school in Eureka to address increased student enrollment and re-purposing the existing school for early childhood education program. In addition, the bond issue will expand the implementation of the one-to-one technology program in our middle and high schools.
I encourage you to learn more about this bond issue. I will be sharing more information as we move toward Election Day on April 4.
The Class of 2018 would like to cordially invite you to join us for our fundraiser and food extravaganza, the Taste of West County, on Monday, February 27.
Tickets for the event are on sale at all lunches next week, or you can order your tickets here.
If your student picks up tickets at lunch by Friday, February 24, he or she will be entered into a drawing for a $50 Visa gift card.
We look forward to seeing you at the Taste of West County!
