What's New

pennies for patients

Rocky Plains Elementary will be participating in a fundraiser for Pennies for Patients to help fight blood cancer.  By now, your student should have come home with a collection box and flyer that explains all the exciting Hero gear they can receive by collecing donations in their box. All incentive Hero gear will be linked to their donation box giving.  Students may also set up an online page to raise donations as well.  A link to our school's donation page can assist them with doing this.  
When you send in your students donation box--PLEASE count the money, and place a note in the box telling us how much money you collected!!!  Thank you!
When heroes work together, we change cancer!
