The classrooms and gym are expected to be open when students return after winter break on Jan. 8, 2018.&nbsp;<br /><br />The construction began with the removal of the mobile classrooms. During the project, the school office is being reconfigured and provide a more secure entrance to the school. Remodeling also will include adding a small group office, new building access and a vestibule on the west side of the school, additional teachers-only parking on the west side, and updating and replacing the building sprinkling system. The east side parking lot will be resurfaced and the roof over the school office and multipurpose room (the current gym) will be replaced. &nbsp;</p> Mon, 25 Sep 2017 11:55:44 -0600 http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/?school_id=5#5357 What's New In Language Arts http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/?school_id=5#5311 <img src="http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/icons/notebook.png" style="float:left; margin-right:3px;" /> <p><a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2F63qrD5jo4">What&#39;s new in the kindergarten through fifth grade&nbsp;language arts and literature program.</a>&nbsp;</p> Fri, 25 Aug 2017 14:50:24 -0600 http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/?school_id=5#5311 Rockland addition GRAND OPENING CELEBRATION! http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/?school_id=5#5478 <p>What: <strong><span style="background-color:#ffffff">The Grand Opening</span></strong> of the new Rockland gym, art room and music room<br />When: Tuesday, January 16th at 8:30 AM<br />Where: The Rockland School gym - the NEW one!<br /><br />See you there!</p> Fri, 12 Jan 2018 13:13:47 -0600 http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/?school_id=5#5478 Rockland Construction Almost Complete http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/?school_id=5#5475 <img src="http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/icons/raptorround.png" style="float:left; margin-right:3px;" /> <p>Renovation of&nbsp;Rockland School that began last June is near completion with the addition of two classrooms and a gymnasium, almost triple the size of the current gym. <strong>A celebration of the project will be held at 8:30 a.m. on Jan. 16 at the school</strong> on Rockland Road.&nbsp;<br /><br />The construction began with the removal of the mobile classrooms.
