Principal's Message


     Principal Priester



    Greetings Rock Island Family,

    Happy New Year Rocket Families! I hope you had the time to enjoy with your loved ones. I wish you much prosperity, health and cheer during 2019. A new year always brings an opportunity for all of us to set new goals for success. Scholars in third, fourth and fifth grade will participate in an interim assessment on the following days: Subject Area Date Science January 11th and 14th Math January 16th & 17th English Language Arts January 23rd and 24th Interim assessments provide important information for teachers to use as they develop a plan to prepare your child for success on the Florida Standards Assessment (FSA). Reports cards will be distributed on January 30th. I encourage all parents to review the report card with his/her child. Praise them for areas of success and create goals to target areas for improvement. I challenge our Rocket Scholars to double the number of Principal and Assistant Principal Honor Roll scholars for the second quarter. Attendance Counts parents! Children are to be in school all day every day. Children learn how to be responsible when they follow a routine schedule. All Rockets are to be in their seat and ready to learn at 8:00 am. Happy New Year Rocket Families! 

    Educationally Yours, 

    Mrs. Cormic Priester

    Proud Principal of Rock Island Elementary
