Yearbook Cover Contest and Orders
It's that time of year for the Yearbook Cover Design Contest! Entries are due in a large envelope with your name on it to Mrs. Annechino in room B108 by Friday, January 20, 2017. There will be a school-wide vote the following week to choose the winner of the contest. Please use only one side of an 8 ½ by 11 piece of paper and leave at least a ½ inch border around all four sides. Do not include any copyrighted images. You may use any medium you would like (crayons, colored pencils, water colors), but markers may smear or bleed and therefore are not recommended. Please see Mrs. Annechino if you have any questions.
You also have the opportunity to order yearbooks now if you have not already done so. Students who have not ordered yearbooks will receive forms during class later this week. The deadline for order forms is January 31st. Group picture day is scheduled for Friday, January 13th. Please contact Mrs. Annechino if you have any questions at annechino.kathryn@rrcs.org.
Middle School Newsletter
Attached is the newsletter for your reference.   
Hour of Code
On Monday December 5th students at Rocky River Middle School participated in a building wide Hour of Code. Students learned the basics of block based coding through the Code.org website. Activities included programming characters from Angry Birds, Minecraft, and Star Wars. Computer science is a field that is in high demand and currently there aren’t enough qualified people to fill these positions. Students watched a short promotional video on how coding impacts everything they do before completing the Hour of Code.
Pirate's Pen
The fall issue of the RRMS student newspaper, Pirate's Pen, is now available online.  Archived issues will be available under the "Student Newspaper" link on the left navigation bar.

Students get to work on whatever medium is available at that time (drawing, painting, small air dry clay projects). We will meet each Friday until the end of February - but students do NOT have to come every week - just come whenever you are able. Also, if students need to leave early - that is not a problem.
