Hello Rockhill Families,

Hopefully, the summer has provided you with many memorable opportunities to spend time with family and friends. It continues to be an honor and privilege to serve as the principal of Rockhill Elementary. As we prepare for the 2017-2018 academic year, I am reminded that the beginning of school is truly a special time, and I am eagerly looking forward to partnering with you as we continue to nurture the ongoing development of your child.

I look forward to meeting with students and families at our Back to School Open House on Thursday, August 31 at 5:00 pm. We will meet in the gymnasium to share important information regarding policies and procedures at Rockhill. Students will then have the opportunity to visit their classroom and drop off their school supplies. Your child’s homeroom class/teacher will be posted on the main entry doors as well as the cafeteria doors on Monday, August 14 at 4:00.

A reminder about our 1st-grade conferences & staggered start:

Wednesday, August 23rd & Thursday, August 24th: Parent Conferences, students attend their conference time only. This time was scheduled by your child’s teacher and sent to you through the mail. If you have not received your letter by August 11, please call the Rockhill Office at 330-829-2260.

Friday, August 25th: 1st-grade students with last names beginning A-L attend school ( M-Z do not attend this day)

Monday, August 28th:1st-grade students with last names beginning M-Z attend school ( A-L do not attend this day)

Tuesday, August 29th: ALL first graders attend school

The first day of school for students in second and third grade is Wednesday, AUGUST 23.

Students may enter the building at 7:50 AM. Dismissal is at 3:00 PM.

Rockhill teachers are working with enthusiasm getting their rooms organized and ready for our students. The office and custodial staff have also been working extra hard in getting the school clean and ready for a great school year. I look forward to continuing our work together as we support Rockhill Elementary! I hope you enjoy the final days of summer!

Yours in education,

Mrs. Michelle Balderson

Rockhill Principal
