"Within the pages of this book we have recorded some of the memorable events of the 1962–1963 school year.  We feel that this year has been an exceptional one.  Throughout the years, the spirit of the student body has upheld the traditions of Rockdale High School.
It is the hope of the Lair staff
that in the years to come, this book will serve as a reminder of the efforts and accomplishments of the members of our school.

"Dear Seniors:
Your school experiences will soon be completed in the Rockdale High School.  How well you have adapted yourself to the problems of life will be very important as you leave us to pursue other fields of endeavor.
We hope we have inspired you to acquire and retain useful and pertinent
information of a factual nature and that you have reached a level of understanding, application and performance commensurate with your ability.
How effective our program of teaching has been will be reflected in how well you relate yourself to the tasks ahead.  We hope you pursue the tasks with diligence and perseverance.
My very best wishes to the Class of 1963.  Never stop learning.
I commend the Lair Staff and its Sponsor for a job well done.  Thanks to all of you.
Sincerely,
J. M. Moorman"
