RHS Newsletter 9/1


RHS Newsletter

September 1, 2017

Our students are doing well adjusting to the routines and procedures of a new school year.  Now, the challenge is to excel at our school work.   We have outstanding teachers and students at Rockdale High School with high expectations for our school and ourselves.  Your support of academics and effort at home reinforce this work.  Please check skyward regularly to see updates of grades to support your student and email your child's teacher if you have questions. I have attached the tutorial schedule   so you are aware of tutorials dates when planning at home.

Mark your calendars:  Tuesday, September 12th is the RHS Open House. This is an opportunity for you to meet teachers and pick-up progress reports (3rd period teacher).   Open House is from 6:00-7:30pm.  This is a come and go event for parents and students; we will not follow a bell schedule.   We will also offer College Readiness Night in the library from 5:00-6:00pm before Open House. Counselors will be available to help you register for the ACT or SAT exams and help apply for college.

A new feature on our webpage is the Anonymous Reporting Program “Quick Tip” available on the RISD webpage allows students and parents to report incidents of bullying, alcohol and drug use, and abuse. 

Monday is a school holiday so enjoy the long weekend.
