"Foreword:  The 1964–65 School year for the Rockdale Public School system has been most eventful and a highly successful one from the standpoint of group and individual accomplishment.
Most of the days throughout the year have been busy ones for both students and faculty and many competitive and entertaining events have taken place which will be long remembered.  High on the list of 'memorable occasions' are the football and basketball playoffs, the state track meet, the Christmas and Valentine dances, the Junior–Senior prom, graduation and especially senior week.
It is always a challenge to capture in pictures the spirit of these occasions as they take place.  It is the hope of the annual staff that this challenge has been met successfully.
Happy looking and may you find many memories ahead."

"Dear Seniors,
A good recipe for education to carry with you from Rockdale High School is: one cup of thinking, 2 cups of dreams, four years of youth, 4 cups of persistence,  3 teaspoons of ability, 2 cups of cooperation, 1–4 cups of good books, lectures and devoted teachers, 1 cup of health, 1 cup of plans made and followed through and a heart filled with love for your fellow man.
Mix all of this together thoroughly.  Add a few years, sift persistence  and ability together thoroughly and add 100% cooperation to the mixture.
You, the graduates, of RHS can add to this recipe your love of God and all He stands for and the servings will last for life.
My love and best wishes go with each of you.
J. M. Moorman"
