Parents’ final grade: A+

By: Tom Hosford, Principal

Crestwood Elementary

 

In just a few short weeks, the Rockford community will complete another wonderful and successful school year! Through hard work, sacrifice and determination, many Rockford students, staff, administrators and schools have received state or local awards and recognition.

Rockford Public Schools has earned many awards over the years including every building being a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, and for seven straight years each building has earned a straight “A” from the Michigan Department of Education’s EdYES! Report Card process.

This year our district has again demonstrated Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) and several schools were recognized by the State of Michigan as a “Reward School” based on high achievement. We definitely have a lot to be thankful for.

Through all the successes and positive experiences Rockford Public Schools has enjoyed over the last few years, 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 the various Parent/Teacher Organizations/Associations, Parent Advisory Committees or Booster Organizations. 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 firsthand 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 School 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!
