Parents’ Final Grade: Straight A’s!

by TOM HOSFORD, Assistant Principal Rockford High School

In a few short weeks, the Rockford community will complete another wonderful and successful school year! Through hard work, patience and determination, many Rockford students, staff and administrators have received state or local awards and recognition. Our district has again received “straight A’s” from the State of Michigan! We definitely have a lot to be thankful for.

Through all the successes and positive experiences Rockford Public Schools has enjoyed over the last nine months, there is one underlying theme that should never go unnoticed: the incredible support from our parents. This support comes in many different forms, such as helping students with their homework or studying for tests, volunteering for various educational or co-curricular committees, or staying involved with the school through monthly parent meetings. Research proves that the more a parent is involved with their child’s education, the more successful that child will become in school. You cannot find a better example of this than right here in Rockford. As an educator, I see first hand the positive impact parents make not only for our individual students, but for our entire school system as well.

On behalf of the entire Rockford Public Schools system, I would like to thank all of our parents for their constant support. Only through consistent parental involvement can we continue our tradition of excellence. Enjoy the end of the school year and all the festivities that come with it! Have a GREAT summer!
