We are getting closer to graduation! We just love this photo and wanted to share it with the Rochelle ISD Community. Happy Thursday! #ChooseRochelle
We have an amazingly busy week next week as we reach the end of this year. We wanted to take some time to share our plans for next week with the Rochelle ISD community as we finalize plans for next week. Our campus continues to abide by the restrictions we have had in place this year which does have an effect on the end of the year events. We do sincerely value honoring our students through assemblies, ceremonies, and banquets and want to continue to do so even though restrictions remain in place. Some of our events are closed to the public given those restrictions; in such cases, we will be streaming those events at the scheduled time on our Facebook page. The Rite of Passage Ceremony (8th Grade Graduation) takes place next Thursday, May 27th, at 7:30PM at Hornet Stadium. Senior Graduation for the Class of 2021 takes place next Friday, May 28th, at 7:30PM at Hornet Stadium. Both of these graduations are open to the public; there is no limit on attendance nor is there a mask requirement at both of these graduations. Kindergarten and 1st Grade graduations are scheduled for next Wednesday (Kindergarten graduation is at 2PM and 1st grade’s graduation time will be 3PM). Both Mrs. Allgood and Ms. Adams will be sharing information about both graduations by the end of this week. We will be hosting both of them in the cafeteria (there will be a guest limit of five for both the Kindergarten and 1st grade graduation ceremonies and all guests will need to wear masks due to the continued COVID restrictions). Students in 1st grade and Kindergarten will be dismissed at the conclusion of their ceremonies for the remainder of the day, but they will need to be present for a full day of school the following day, Thursday, May 27th to pack up their items, check-in technology, and close-out their school year. The High School Athletics Banquet, historically hosted in the evening, has been moved to a daytime event due to the continued restrictions in place. We will be broadcasting/streaming this event on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/rochelle.isd. The High School Athletics Banquet is scheduled to take place next Wednesday, May 26th starting at approximately 11:30AM. Given the restrictions in place, this event will be a closed event with only students and school personnel attending. The end of the year Awards Ceremonies will take place on Thursday, May 28th at 10AM for high school, 2PM for elementary, and 3PM for junior high. We will be broadcasting/streaming these ceremonies on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/rochelle.isd. Given the restrictions in place, these ceremonies will be closed events as well with only students and school personnel attending. We appreciate the community’s support as we conclude this very unique year. We, as a community, have faced a lot of unknowns and continue to overcome them all with the support of our staff, teachers, students, parents, and community members. If you have any questions, please email Mr. Fields at firstname.lastname@example.org or 325-243-5224.
