TREA Newsletter: 12/5-12/9

Hello! Welcome to a new week. I apologize for the delay in sending this out. As things have been changing and shifting this past week, I wanted to wait until I had all the information I could get about upcoming events before I hit “publish.”

Due to some of recent the changes, I’m sure you have some questions! You are always welcome to reach out to Mrs. Turner, or myself, Mrs. Frankenberg, with questions or concerns. Our emails are: director@therockenrichmentacademy.org (Mrs. Turner) or admin@therockenrichmentacademy.org (myself).

Crazy Sock Week!

Is this week! December 5th-9th!

Join us for our 7th Annual Blessing Bags event, THIS Thursday, December 8th at CPW

All are welcome next Thursday, 2pm-4pm on our Cedar Park West campus patio, for our annual “Blessing Bag“ project. Each year we hold this campus-wide community service event as an opportunity to fellowship and serve those in need.

This year our recipient is the community of San Saba, where TREA is expanding its mission with a satellite campus. The community has a 50-60% poverty rate and very recently, the Austin Area Food Bank stopped supporting all of San Saba.

We are asking for donations of children’s clothing and canned or dried food packages. Donations will be collected on each campus this coming week, Monday through Thursday.

During the event, each student may choose to support a boy or girl of a certain age by bagging handpicked clothing outfits, snacks, and a personalized note to share God’s love. Mrs Turner will be delivering all bags to a church in San Saba!

The event officially kicks off at 2 PM. Parent volunteers will arrive at 1 PM to help sort clothing and food, but it is a ‘come and go’ event. Upper school photography students will capture the highlights, help facilitate games, and man snack table with hot chocolate, cider and snacks.

A sign-up sheet to contribute with either time or items can be found here.

Picture Delivery THIS Week!

If you placed an order for portraits prior to 11/28, your pictures have arrived! They will be handed out to your student this week.
If you placed an order on 11/29 or after, I will be submitting those THIS TUESDAY (12/6) so you have a few more days left to get in photo orders if you meant to place on and haven’t. They should arrive by Friday/Saturday 12/9 or 12/10 so that you’ll get your child’s pictures before Christmas. The photo magnets make great gifts!
We are also offering digital downloads this year! To save space, I have upload small images to the website, so if you purchase a digital download, I will email you a compressed full-sized image. I can send JPEG, DNG, or TIFF files (the latter two will be converted RAW files and are fairly large while the JPEG will be around 11-12mb and would allow you to print larger photos, but not a billboard or anything, haha).
Please reach out to me if you have questions! We haven’t gotten photos of all students yet (due to absences or recently joining us)–we will take more photos in the Spring and the photo store will remain open until the end of April.

Coming up!

The week before Christmas (December 12th-16th) all students are asked to wear festive clothes instead of their blue Rock shirts.

And Finally!

Buy your yearbook now before the price goes up!

This week’s newsletter is sponsored by:

Ruby Lee’s Corner- Handcrafted earrings by child entrepreneur

Miss Ruby has an awesome selection of earrings she has made (with a few exceptions). She’s had a blast making and selling them at local festivals since June. We are teaching her the value of hard work and how to save her money. She’s got some super cute fall and Christmas ones available, plus some for everyday occasions. Check out her website and be sure to choose “local pickup” when ordering to avoid shipping fees.

Jewell’s Jelly and Jams – Homemade Artisan Jelly & Jam

Four-ish years ago I accidentally started a business and I’ve enjoyed it so much I just keep doing it! I love coming up with all of my eclectic flavors to share with everyone. I also have traditional flavors for the less adventurous. Over 100 flavors actually!! There’s literally a flavor for everyone!! One of my regulars calls me the “Baskin Robbins of jelly.” I have flavors for everyday use plus a ton that are phenomenal for charcuterie boards! If you are looking for something special for your holiday meals or gifts you need to check out my website! There’s an order form link but feel free to text me as well. (Ariel Jewell 512-619-9497)
