Superintendent's Message
Dear Students:

My sincere best wishes go to those graduating this year.  Rockdale takes great pride in you as a group of well-poised, straight-thinking, cooperative youth.  We will follow your course with profound interest in the future years ahead.  You represent my first graduating class of Rockdale High School

To those remaining, I wish you every success in your school work and offer you my services in making Rockdale Public Schools a pleasant and profitable school experience for you.  My desire is to lead you to discover new horizons in the field of educational achievement.

My prayer for the graduates is for your  lives to be linked with God in service, and to those who remain with us, my prayers shall ever be that God will bless and keep you close to Him, and that you may fully realize that Christian character is developed in the home, the church, and the school.  Rockdale offers all three institutions.
