Dear Rockdale Families,

We hope this letter finds you well and filled with the excitement that a new semester brings. As we embark on the second half of the school year, we want to extend a warm welcome to each and every one of our Rockdale families.

First and foremost, we want to express our appreciation for your continued support and partnership in your child's education. The journey we've shared so far has been filled with growth, learning, and memorable moments, and we are eager to build on that foundation in the upcoming semester.

Here are a few important updates and highlights to look forward to:

Continued Learning and Academic Excellence:
Our dedicated teaching staff remains committed to providing a nurturing and engaging learning environment. We will continue to focus on academic excellence while fostering creativity, critical thinking, and a love for learning in your child. We are entering “testing season.” The following tests will be coming up pretty soon: MAP, ACCESS, and IAR. More information will be coming about each assessment so all of our families are fully aware of what is up and coming.

Special Events and Activities:
Throughout the second semester, we have planned a variety of special events and activities to enhance your child's overall educational experience. Stay tuned for details about field trips, guest speakers, and other exciting opportunities for our students.

Parent-Teacher Collaboration:
Open communication and collaboration between parents and teachers are crucial for a child's success. We encourage you to stay actively involved in your child's education, attend parent-teacher conferences, and participate in school events.

Support Services:
Our school offers various support services to ensure the well-being and success of every student. If your child requires additional assistance or if you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to their teacher or the school's support staff.

Safety First:
The safety of our students is our top priority. We will continue to adhere to all necessary safety protocols and guidelines to provide a secure learning environment.

As we move forward together, we look forward to celebrating achievements, overcoming challenges, and creating lasting memories. Our school community is a vibrant and diverse family, and we are grateful to have you as part of it.

Thank you for entrusting us with your child's education. We are confident that the second semester will be filled with growth, joy, and success.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact us. Here's to a fantastic second semester!

Warm regards,

Raymond Moland
