State Testing

May 3-May 21 will be a busy time at Rochelle. Students in Grades 3-8 will participate in several days of state assessments (FSA) and End of Course (EOC) tests, with the number of days of testing varying by grade level. In order to accommodate the blocks of time necessary for testing, all grade levels will experience variations to the normal daily schedule. We appreciate everyone’s patience as we strive to have the best testing environments for all. It is critical that all students involved in testing arrive before 8:00 am so they can test with their assigned teachers. Thank you!

PTA in 2021-2022

Our new PTA Board is getting ready for a fantastic 2021-22 school year, and there are still opportunities to get connected with different committees or projects, such as Book Fair, School Pictures, Fundraising, Spirit Nights at local restaurants, rewards & incentives for students, Mother/Son and Father/Daughter Dances, and Dollar Dinner Nights. Many of these activities can be done from home in-part or entirely. Interested in joining the team? Contact Mrs. Mayes at Kimberlee.mayes@polk-fl.net and she’ll get you connected!
