Esteemed Marshals, parents, faculty, and staff,
First and foremost, I would like to congratulate everyone involved with the increase in our graduation rate for six straight years. We have gone from 45% in 2011 to the 2017 rate of 97%. This signifies a great deal of work from many people, especially the graduates. I am happy and privileged to certify that each and every graduate in my time here has legitimately earned the required credits to graduate. Even more, they have earned the right to choose how they will take on their post-high school life. Without their diploma, they are locked into a menial existence, yet with it, they can look at possibilities of all sorts. A Rockwell diploma means a great many hours and a significant effort had to be extended to earn it. Anyway, congratulations Rockwell.
Secondly, students are out at Noon on Friday the 15th. We do not return until Wednesday, January 3rd. We will have a week and a half until the end of term 2, semester 1 on Friday, January 12th. Please encourage on-time attendance and participation in classes (including turning work in). In order to make up absences and tardies, there will be a Saturday School Marathon on Saturday the 16th, 8 am to 2 pm. This fixes attendance, but not grades unless students have discussed the matter with their teachers.
Lastly, on behalf of the Administrative team and office staff, we wish you all a Merry Christmas or whatever you may celebrate at this time of year and a great 2018. Please let us know if you have questions or concerns. We are grateful to have you all involved with Rockwell at whatever level in whatever capacity. Hoping we can all be committed to continually making needed improvements to ourselves and our school.
Rockwell Charter High School
As part of the public system of education in the state, Rockwell is committed to constant improvement. Furthermore, as a public charter school, the school is committed to doing what it can for the students entrusted to us. As needed, parents, guardians, and students should seek opportunities to meet with teachers to go over work, to review policies and procedures, and to connect in the mist appropriate ways to help students succeed. Positive interactions help us grow a culture of success.
