Farewell to the Class of 2018

I wanted to take this opportunity to offer my sincere thanks to all the graduates of the Class of 2018 and your families for ​an amazing four years together.  We have been through many challenges and many joys, and the one thing I will carry with me as a lasting legacy for this class is the strength you exhibited through it all.  I know you will continue to create new bonds of friendships in your futures, and I hope you are able to carry our motto, "Coming Together to Make It Count," wherever the journey takes you.  You are amazing people, and I will miss you.

Have an awesome summer and be sure to stay in touch!

THIS INCLUDES COMPLETING THE SENIOR EXIT SURVEY - THE LINK CAN BE FOUND IN YOUR ROCKWOOD E-MAIL ACCOUNT.

  • Senior Exit Survey
About three weeks ago, Seniors received a link to an Exit Survey that must be completed prior to graduation practice. Details are below:

Please check your RSD email account and take the Senior Exit Survey.  You must complete this survey prior to graduation practice.​

Background Information:

As part of MSIP-5, districts are required to follow-up on previous year graduates 180 days following graduation. In addition to this, our district Guidance Department has traditionally administered a “Senior Exit Survey”. For the Class of 2018, Rockwood will be combining these two different processes in an attempt to streamline data collection and reduce the demand on student/staff time at the schools.​

​​Process:

    • A unique link will be sent to each student by Monday, 4/16/18 in their Rockwood supplied Gmail account to complete the two part process
    • Part 1 - Intent Questionnaire
      • MSIP Required
      • NOT Anonymous
      • Up to 11 questions regarding future education and work plans
    • Part 2 - Guidance Senior Exit Survey
      • Completely anonymous
      • 26 questions regarding student experiences/satisfaction with Guidance Programming
      • Weekly reminders will be sent to students via email who have not completed the Intent Questionnaire.
Directions for Students:​
    1. Students login to their official Rockwood-supplied email account at https://mail.google.com/ (Email will be sent by Monday 4/16/18)
    • ​​​Username is the same as the student’s computer login combined with @rsdmo.org. Example: sstudent@rsdmo.org
    • Password is ​​​​​the same as the student’s regular computer password
    • ​​Open the email titled, “Class of 2018 Graduate Intent Survey” and click on the link contained within.
    • ​​​​​​For students who did not receive an auto-generated email ONLY, use this link (https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/RSDGRAD2018)  and your 10-digit Rockwood student number (REQUIRED)​.
  • Honor Cords have been distributed. Any student who did not pick up their cords will receive them on Friday, May 18 in his/her cap and gown bag.  All National Merit and Bright Flight stoles will also be in the cap and gown bags.

  • The Senior Release Form was mailed to your homes last week, but I have included an electronic copy (attached to this email) for your convenience.  

  • Seniors who are taking an AP Exam on Friday, May 18 and are planning to attend the Baccalaureate service on Sunday, May 20 can pick up their cap and gown from my office on Friday afternoon (May 18). However, any student who misses the mandatory graduation practice on Friday (May 18) must attend the make-up graduation practice on Monday, May 21.
  • Senior Celebration ticket prices are $90.00 and may only be cash purchases at the door.  I have included three attachments for Senior Celebration (informational letter, events agenda, and map of event) for your convenience.  I hope to see you there!
  • GRADUATION!

Final Exam Exemptions
Seniors:

This link (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSdqUEIz1dE7OoE8wFeBrZERHsViILzi4e1zzGCPH27oYIBTzQ/viewform) will connect you to the Google Form to request exemptions for your final exams.  

*** You must fill out the Google Form in order to qualify for an exemption! ***

A few important reminders:

*** EXEMPTION FORMS ARE DUE NO LATER THAN THURSDAY, MAY 10 AT 4:00 P.M. ***

You may choose to exempt any final exam in the spring semester in which you are earning an “A” in the course at the time of the exam. If your grade falls below an "A" before the time of the exam, you will be expected to take the final on the day of the exam.

Advanced Placement (AP) courses use the following procedure:

  • A student will be exempt from final exams in all AP courses in which he/she takes the AP exam and is earning at least a “B” in the respective AP class at the time of the final.

If you qualify for a final exam exemption and choose not to come to school, your attendance will reflect an absence for that class period. If you are an A+ program participant, your attendance status will be impacted. You do have the option of attending school and reporting to your classes in order to maintain your attendance status.

Senior final exam schedule:


Monday, May 14, 2018 – All Seniors in attendance for the full day

Tuesday, May 15, 2018 – Seniors take finals for 5th, 6th, and 7th hours.

Wednesday, May 16, 2018 – Seniors take finals for 3rd and 4th hours.
