Hello Rochester Primary Families;
Welcome to the 2014-2015 school year! Your Rochester Primary staff has worked hard preparing for your students’ arrival and the upcoming school year.
Over the last two weeks, we enrolled many new students which allowed us to hire an additional kindergarten teacher, Ms. Merrifield. Mrs. Strong accepted a position closer to home and while we miss her, we are finding a new friend in Mr. McManus who is teaching second grade. The needs of our students are such that we added a fourth special education teacher to our ranks, Mrs. Pitkin. Additionally, we have three long term substitutes teaching for RPS while our staff members are caring for their families. Standing in for Mrs. Lowe is Mrs. Evans; for Mrs. Fragner is Mrs. Kehr and for Mrs. Woods is Mrs. Sampson.
Each change or new hire was made after thorough consideration of all options available to us. The filter for every decision we made was, “Is this in the best interest of the students at Rochester Primary?” In each case I can confidently report the answer was yes! I am just thrilled with the team we have in place to support your children.
Information regarding school activities will be posted on our school website throughout the year. If I can be of assistance, please contact me by email or call the school at 273-5161. Our regular business hours are from 8:15 a.m. to 3:45 p.m.
We all are looking forward to a successful year of learning at Rochester Primary. Thank you for being such an important part of our great school!
Proud to be your principal,Amy Roney
