Our 5th graders are participating in Step Up Day with our middle school teachers this morning! They submitted questions they have about going into 6th grade next year. It can be scary, even in a small school, to transition into middle school-our teachers do a great job of preparing our students for that change!

May 21st was all about our Class of 2024! 8th graders started their day with a delicious catered breakfast from Louie's Waffle House, followed by a morning of graduation rehearsal, then finished with a clap out. Families were invited back for a graduation ceremony in the evening. We're so proud of you all and cannot wait to see all that you accomplish in your bright futures! Keep coming back and telling us about the amazing things you're doing! Congratulations, Class of 2024!

Our band and choir students got a behind the scenes look at the Rialto Square Theatre on May 20th. They toured the theatre, learned about its history, and got to see an organist perform. Thank you to the Rialto volunteers for guiding us and to the Sliver Spoon Family Restaurant for having us for lunch after our tour!

Rockdale Families: Today, Wednesday, May 15, 2024, Rockdale students and staff were evacuated from the building due to a potential gas leak. This occurred at the time of student arrival. As students were arriving for the day, they were taken to our reunification location. Rockdale Police and local fire departments were on scene to inspect the building. First responders gave District leadership the all clear at approximately 9:15 AM and all students and staff were able to return to the building safely. We appreciate the flexibility and understanding of our Rockdale families. Our students, staff, and first responders did an excellent job handling this situation! Should you have additional questions or concerns, please call the main office or contact Mr. Moland. Thank you!

Our 6th-8th grade students showcased their scientific research at yesterday's Science Expo! Rockdale students explored solar, hydro, and mud energy, innovations in medical technology, and the process of extracting DNA. Shout out to Mr. Olson and Ms. Lee for all the support they provided our students this spring as they worked through the scientific method; and a big thank you to ExxonMobil for sponsoring the Expo and to Minooka Intermediate for hosting! We're grateful to be able to participate in such an awesome event every year; and especially grateful for all the support from our families (and former Rams)! We can't wait to see what innovations our Rockdale students share in the future!

Throughout the month of March, Ms. Willis and Ms. Nordstrom's 3rd grade classes participated in Book Madness! Students designed their own jersey, completed their own bracket, and voted each round to choose a winner. The championship round was a battle between "The Tree and the River" by Aaron Becker and "Finding Winnie: The True Story of the World's Most Famous Bear" by Lindsay Mattick. Check out the class photo to see which book the 3rd graders voted as the 2024 Champion!
