March 7 Rock Hill Schools Update #rockhill #rockhillschools

Hi-Tech Gala

The March 5 Hi-Tech Gala, sponsored by the Rock Hill School District Foundation, was IMPRESSIVE! A “who’s who” of business leaders, legislators, local officials, and educators attended. Keynote speaker, Dr. Mark Edwards, the 2013 National Superintendent of the Year, focused his comments on the economic value to a community when a digital conversion model is successfully in place in the local schools. The Hi-Tech awards of the evening went to the City of Rock Hill

Congratulations to . . .

  • fifth-graders at Finley Road Elementary School who toured the Levine Museum in Charlotte on Feb. 21. Principal Chris Roorda received an email from the docent who conducted the tour who said: “I have rarely had the privilege of working with a group of students as intelligent and well-spoken as these fifth-graders. They were engaging, mature, eager, enthusiastic and interactive. In addition, each of the chaperones was wonderful and engaged.”
