Assistant Principal's Message



    Rock Island Families,

    As we transition into the Fall season, I am thankful for all you do to support learning here at our great school. From morning drop off to dismissal pick up and everything in between- thank YOU for your role in keeping KINDNESS at the forefront of all we do here at Rock Island.  We are all on the same team, working hard to ensure our children receive the very best education daily.  KINDNESS is a mindset and with your help each morning, we can remind our scholars that it costs nothing to be nice and makes the day full of joy as we work and learn together as one big ROCK ISLAND FAMILY.

    I am very proud of our school’s academic growth and perseverance and will continue to work hard to support the commitment to our students’ academic achievements as well as their social emotional development.
