Back to school this year means new facilities

Have you been in any of the new schools? I am so proud to know that Rockdale has these kinds of facilities in our town! They are beautiful and such a wonderful learning environment.

Thank you to all who have worked so hard for the schools to get them where they are. They are such an addition to our community and will defi- nitely make new people want to come to town.

And add to that the quality of teaching staff we have and we have got a win-win situation.

If you haven't had a chance to go look at them by all means go and see them. You will be as proud as I am.
