Due to the weather all book fairs at drop-off will be inside the front entrance–for Monday, this will be the double doors on the opposite side of carpool drop-off, Tuesday, inside the door to the green building, and Wednesday, right inside the doors in the gym!
  • All campuses will be on Springs Break March 14th-18th
Our book fairs will also include Cards for a Cause!

Summer Camps and Yearbook Pick-Up

We will host a yearbook pick-up day near the end of the summer. Currently the plan is to have a Yearbook pick up day that coincides with camps the week of August 8th-12th. This camp week will include photography for K-Upper School students and Epic Disasters where we pick apart some cool engineering disasters and recreate some of them and fix others through hands-on experiments! Sign up for this camp and others on our Summer Camps page!

TREA Partners with Jamaican Church!

From Mrs. Jay-Turner


In effort to expand community service opportunities within our school program and serve others across the world, TREA has “adopted” a church family in Jamaica. I had the privilege of visiting these amazing people last week. We delivered clothing and toys, helped with baptisms and helped launch a building fund for their new church. Each month my own family will send boxes of items needed, and donate directly to the building fund for the church (we plan to return to Jamaica to help actually  build the church this summer).
These families, many of which have one room houses and 5-6 family members, are incredibly poor, yet the most grateful and joy-filled people I’ve ever known. If you’d like to help and donate used clothing and shoes, you’re welcome to bring items to campus and I will ship them via a courier. The 2 first boxes will be sent out tomorrow afternoon.

Here’s a list of items needed the most, should you feel led to donate:

*boys clothing size 2T
*tennis shoes and sandals, crocs would be great
*all sizes & styles of summer clothing for boys and girls, men & women
*bath soaps and scented lotions
*dried nuts & fruit, fruit cups (food is ridiculously expensive there, 1 generic box of cereal that would be $2 here is $8 there)

Donations directly to the church building fund can be sent to director@therockenrichmentacademy.org via PayPal. This is the account linked to our non-profit and it is tax deductible. A receipt will be provided.

This is a picture of the future church grounds.

The current church is in a tent with a dirt floor, the restroom a 3- sided outhouse with a bucket, but the people come to worship with a heart for God unlike anything I’ve seen. Your children will soon see a video compilation of pictures of the families with children their age.

NWRR Location Launched last week!

If you’re wanting to add some classes to Wednesdays, our newest location opens this Wednesday, March 2nd. Classes for K-6th include Science, Spanish, Servant Leadership, PE, and Orchestra. We are also offering taster courses for those thinking about joining Upper School next year. Those courses are Intro to Creative Writing and Intro to Psychology as well as the above Orchestra, Spanish, and Character Building courses. All students can attend full-day or choose classes a la carte!
