Renaissance Staff Person of the Month - May
Please join the Renaissance Student Steering Committee in congratulating...

Lauren Sakowski

as the staff person of the month for May.

According to Laura Champion, "She has been very encouraging of my art. Mrs. Sakowski pushes me out of my comfort zone and is flexible in letting me try new things. In addition, she decided to take on reading through my first draft of a novel I have been working on, giving me feedback and inspiration as I write despite being an art teacher and in no way being compensated or required to do so. I look forward to school because of her."

Way to go, Lauren. Going above and beyond? That's what she does.

The generosity of the Lafayette students, staff, and community continues to amaze me. Last Friday we raised $2,005.56 during our 2nd annual Cookies for a Cause fundraiser. What a way to honor the legacy of Lawrence Strawbridge and celebrate what would have been his 17th birthday.

Thank you to everyone who promoted and participated in our fundraiser. It was truly an outstanding day and the great character of Lafayette High School shined bright. It is our honor to donate this money to the Lawrence Strawbridge Foundation​ and support the many great things they are doing for kids. 

Thanks again for your help and support!!

Renaissance Staff Person of the Month

Please join the Renaissance Student Steering Committee in congratulating...

Stephanie Mullins 
as our Staff ​Person of the Month.  

Christie Leslie says of Mrs. Mullins, "Throughout my years at Lafayette, Mrs. Mullins has been one of the most helpful and supportive adults in my life. Whether I need a question answered or a recommendation, I can always count in her to aide me in whatever way needed. When I accomplish my goals, it is not unusual for me to receive a note from Mrs. Mullins telling me she is proud of me. Without her constant support, I do not believe I could have been nearly as successful."

Well-deserved, Mrs. Mullins, for the difference you make for kids. Way to go!

Prop T - Vote on April 4

Remember to vote on Election Day, April 4!

In just four days, Rockwood voters will consider Proposition T to address enrollment issues and continued support for STEM and innovative learning.

The bond issue will not raise the current Rockwood tax rate. A four-sevenths (57.14 percent) majority is necessary for passage.

Watch Superintendent Dr. Eric Knost's video to learn what Prop T would fund in the Rockwood School District. Read his message to the Rockwood community about the bond funding to address increasing enrollment, class sizes, one-to-one technology and our ongoing efforts to increase STEM and innovation at all levels of teaching and learning.

Also, check to see if your school or building will be used as a polling site, and review campaign regulations.
