A Message from the Principal
Hello and welcome to Rock Springs Elementary. We’re excited to start a new year and we’re happy you will be a part of the excitement. Whether you’re a returning family or you’re new to our school we know this will be a great year. We are large school for sure! Last year we had the largest enrollment of any elementary school in Rutherford County. We may not have that distinction this year but our population will certainly be very close to last year’s numbers.
At some point in the year you will probably visit our school for one reason or another. When you visit RSE please remember to bring a photo ID. Student and staff safety is of the utmost importance and visitors are only allowed after presenting their ID. If your child will have family members other than you visiting them at school please make sure those visitors are on your child’s registration card. Also, please remind them to bring their ID when visiting.
Although we have a relaxed dress code one clothing item we require for all our students is closed-toed shoes. We recommend athletic shoes be worn by all students everyday so that students may participate in PE class and recess. If a student wears sandals or other types of open-toed shoes the parent will be called to bring appropriate shoes.
Our teaching staff is of the highest quality and we routinely finish toward the top of RCS elementary schools. We have been recognized for finishing in the top 25% and even top 10% of the state in different grades/subjects. Our focus is on challenging our students to learn at the highest levels. We judge our success solely on the success of our students.
Thank you in advance for your support of RSE. Although I won’t meet every parent this year I look forward to meeting those of you I will have the privilege of seeing. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or concerns. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
