Giving thanks

Last week was a week when we gave thanks for all of the blessings we have been provided. It was an opportunity for families to spend time together and enjoy each other’s company. It was a short work week for district employees and students; so, I am sure everyone was thankful for the holiday time. I trust that all of you had a wonderful holiday and are in that seasonal spirit.

There are a few things that we would like to bring to your attention. Report cards are out for the end of the second grading period. Parents, please review your children’s grades and know how they are performing in school. If you have questions regarding your child’s performance, please contact the campus administration or their teacher and schedule a conference.

Also, I would like for you to visit our web site and review the Texas College and Career Ready web page, our “Week in Review” video and the pictures from “The Soldier Visit.” These are informational and are also examples of good things taking place in our district.

While you are visiting the web site, please take some time and complete the Project Tomorrow “Speak Up Survey.” This survey allows you to share your ideas directly with schools and national policy makers. It is open until Dec. 14, and we would appreciate your participation.

This week, our campus design teams are meeting and collaborating to develop a blueprint for their instructional settings. We are committed to providing students with engaging lessons focused on profound learning opportunities and to developing meaningful relationships with our students, our faculty and staff and with our parents and community stakeholders.

Rockdale ISD is thankful for a supportive school board and a community that places high expectations on our public schools. We want to communicate with all of our stakeholders and to ensure that our students are meeting the expectations of their world.
