Assistant Principal's Message

  • 2019-2020 AP Message


    Welcome to the 2019 – 2020 school year! I am proud to proclaim from the mountaintops that we are a C! Our staff worked extremely hard to provide quality instruction and their hard work did not go unnoticed. Rock Island Elementary has “LEVELED UP”.

    This summer, we were recognized by the Florida Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) Project as a PBIS Silver recipient. This means that Rock Island is focused on establishing school-wide expectations, providing Social Emotional Learning, reducing the behavior referral rate, and decreasing the number of external suspensions. Please assist us with this continued effort by infusing our Core Values at home and reminding your scholars to; Be Responsible, Be Respectful, Be In Control, and Be Kind.

    This year, we will continue to focus on ensuring academic proficiency through high quality instruction, and creating an environment that is safe and supportive for all scholars and their families. Our safety practices continue to be revised to ensure that your scholars are safe at all times. As a school-based team, we frequently review of practices and make revisions on a situational basis. Our “Welcome Back” newsletter will outline those safety practices as well as outline our school-wide expectations.

    I encourage you to join our Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and our School Advisory Council (SAC). This is one way to become further involved in our school and provide input on our system practices. The cost to join per family is $7.

    Communicating with and providing excellent customer service is a priority at Rock Island. Important information is included in the monthly newsletter and disseminated through parent links. Please ensure that your contact information is updated often.

    Please feel free to contact me at anytime with any questions or concerns. We will work together to address any concerns and provide a speedy resolution.


    Here to serve,

    Mrs. Marie Rumble-Wise
