RIS Newsletter - September 4, 2017

Greetings from Rockdale Intermediate School. We had a great week last week and our staff and students are off to a great start. Our students have settled in to the new year and have adjusted to the new routines and procedures very well. Please check student folders, conduct cards and reading logs regularly as they will give you an insight into how your student is doing. If you would like to know more, please contact your child's teacher by email or phone to set up a time to visit.

We are excited to kick off a new year of EAFK and can't wait to have our student orientation on September 13, 2017 at 1:30. EAFK, or EarlyAct First Knights Program, is a character education program supported by Rockdale Rotary. Please join us on our playground to enjoy this motivational kickoff for our new year. Feel free to bring a lawn chair to ensure you are comfortable during the presentation.

I hope you enjoyed the holiday and we look forward to seeing you all soon.

Have a great week!

Kathy Pelzel, Principal
