Dear Rock River Intermediate School Families,

The 2018-2019 school year is right around the corner. I can’t wait for our halls to be filled with the sound of excited children.Welcome to those who are new to Rock River Intermediate. We are excited have you join our family!

We welcome a few new teachers to the Rock River staff. Lauren Rutter joins us as our 6th grade writing teacher. Alene Budd (formally Heeringa) will be teaching 5th grade. Megan Moeller, Daniel Sanders, and Lindsey Day are new special education teachers in our building. Jason Buchholz joins us as an additional technology teacher.

I would like to thank our dedicated staff for all their hard work preparing for the upcoming school year. We have spent many hours writing and revising curriculum and participating in professional development so that we can grow to better serve our students.

Rock River Intermediate is in the process of being remodeled to create an atmosphere that better meets the needs of students in grades 2-6. This new building will include six classrooms for each grade level, collaboration spaces for students to work together in small groups, a beautifully remodeled library with bookshelves that students can easily reach and comfortable furniture for students to enjoy a good book, drinking fountains with bottle filling stations that students can reach without a step stool…and so many other wonderful changes I am not able to list them all in this letter. It is so incredibly exciting! We hope you will plan to come see all the new improvements at our open house tentatively set for September 11th (more details will be coming).

Here at Rock River we truly believe education is a team effort. We look forward to working together with you to help your child grow. Please contact us to let us know how we can help your child succeed.

We are honored to have your students here at Rock River Intermediate School, and are looking forward to the seeing you all soon!
