Dear Parents/Guardians, Students, and Community Members,


Next month we will be returning to Rowland to start the 2015-16 school year.  It is an exciting time for all of us.  Prior to the start of the year, I wanted to introduce myself and the rest of the Rowland administrative team to you.  I came to Rowland at the end of the previous school year as the acting principal.  I am pleased to inform you that I have been selected to continue in the position on a permanent basis.  Joining me are two assistant principals, Mrs. Michelle Archie and Mr. Jason Rawls.  We have spent this summer preparing for the school year with the goal of providing a productive, safe, and enjoyable school year for each and every student that walks through the doors.

In order to accomplish this goal, we will need your support and involvement.  We plan on establishing a Parent Teacher Association that will be able raise funds to allow our students additional educational and enrichment opportunities throughout the school year.  We also plan to develop partnerships in the community that can benefit our students academically and socially.  Please check our website regularly, and watch for announcements that will come home with your child, as well as through the Global Call system, as we move forward with these endeavors.  Thank you for your time and attention, and enjoy the rest of the summer!
