Rocknoceros has dominated the Washington, DC children’s music scene since 2005.

Rocknoceros has won the Children’s Music Artist WAMMY award at the Washington Area Music Awards for four years in a row. They were also recognized in NPR Music’s “Best of 2009.” The music is sure to appeal to elementary school children of all ages (and parents, too!).

I want to inform everyone that our annual Student Count Day will occur this Thursday, October 23rd.

Some reminders:

1) Thursday will be a uniform-free day, no specific theme

2) Students will not be dismissed early Thursday until the count is over (scheduled to be sometime in the afternoon)

Finally, thanks to everyone that took the time last spring, over the summer, and into the beginning of school to ensure that your child’s enrollment packet was 100% complete. I am happy to say that after today we are fully prepared for the audit! A public kudos to Ms. Diggs and Ms. Casula for their work in preparing for the day!
