7th & 8th Grade Backpack Night - August 15th
The 7th & 8th Grade Backpack Night is 6:30 to 8:00 pm next Wednesday, August 15th. Please park in the main HS Parking Lot and come in to the JH Boys' PE Gym (Mr. Smith's Gym) when you arrive.  This is an informal evening where the building is open for 7th & 8th graders to get their locker assignment and spend time unpacking school supplies before the first day of school (which is Friday, August 17th). Students can also pick up their PE clothes, sign up for fall sports (football & girls' basketball), and grab a variety of handouts and other important information.

Football & Girls' Basketball practices will begin after school on Monday, August 20th (3:30 to 5:00 pm). There will be a Parent Meeting following practice at 5:30 pm in the Auditorium. All students MUST have a current sports physical on file before participating in practice. Please turn these in ahead of time if at all possible!

6th Grade Orientation - August 16th
6th Grade Orientation Night will be held Thursday, August 16th at 6:30 pm. This orientation will be held in the Rockridge High School Auditorium. Please note that this evening is not an “open house” style but will begin with a set presentation at 6:30 pm in the Auditorium.

At this meeting we will review the Junior High Student Handbook, discuss techniques to increase success at this level, and share some valuable tips for students & parents.  At the conclusion of the meeting students and parents will have the opportunity to pick up their locker assignments and tour the Junior High. This will give new students a head start in becoming familiar with the locations of their lockers & classrooms. Students who have pre-paid for PE Clothes will be able to pick up these items in the JH Boys’ Gym.

Please contact the RJHS Office (309-793-8040) with any questions about this information.
