Principal's Corner

Welcome to 2019-2020

Hello Rocketville,

Our floors are shiny, our rooms are clean, our cafeteria has been painted, the only thing we are missing is our students, and that will be rectified soon. Please take some extra time to enjoy your children, they are only this age once. I know that the summer can seem to drag at times and patience may be a minimum once in a while, but the memories that you build with your children will last a lifetime. I hope your days are wonderful!

I frequently remind our staff that our students are only in their current grade once so I am asking them to do everything possible to make it memorable. There is a tremendous amount of work that takes place on a consistent basis but once in a while it is OK to just have fun. We feel it is our responsibility to not only address academics but the whole child. Our promise to you is that we will do every thing we can to make your children the best versions of themselves.

That being said, our motto for this year will be "IT STARTS WITH ME". Please have a conversation with your child about what they think this means and how it applies to their lives. We will continue to discuss this throughout the year so please remember to have future conversations as well.    

Dates to remember:

  • First Day of School, Wednesday, August 21
  • 4th Grade Back to School Night, Wednesday, August 21, 6:00 - 7:00
  • 5th Grade Back to School Night, Thursday, August 22, 6:00 - 7:00

Both nights will begin in the gym with a brief overview of our year.

Have a wonderful day!

Dave McAtee
