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.

New Immunizations Required for 7th and 12th Graders Fall 2016
The Ohio Department of Health has revised the immunizations requirements for the 2016-2017 school year. All students entering the 7th grade are required to have one dose of Meningococcal vaccine and one dose of Tdap (Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis) prior to the start of school. In addition, all students entering the 12th grade are required to have two doses of Meningococcal vaccine prior to the start of school. However, if the student received their first dose after their 16th birthday then just one dose of Meningococcal is required. You may obtain the Meningococcal and the Tdap vaccines from your private physician or other community providers. Please consider the new guidelines when scheduling your child’s next medical appointment. These vaccines are also available from the Cuyahoga County Board
of Health. Please call 216-201-2041 for an immunization appointment or for additional information. 

National Mix It Up Model School
Rocky River Middle School's Be the Change group organized a Mix It Up day that brought students differently-abled together with other students. During a week of thanks, they encouraged everyone to give honest praise to family members, other students, teachers, cafeteria workers, custodians, bus drivers and other staff. They created a giant bulletin board that said “thank you” written in 22 other languages. They kept the positive energy up with a Week of Kindness!
