Dear Rockwood School Community,
Monday, July 1, marks my first day as your Rockwood Superintendent. I am excited to be back in Missouri and once again call it home. I am truly honored to be your next leader, and I understand the great responsibility that comes with leadership.
Over the next few days, weeks, and months, I want to take every opportunity to get to know our Rockwood students, families, staff, and community. We share the core belief that relationships are the foundation of all learning. In Rockwood, it is evident that we care about our students – and each other – and this commitment shows.
What I have learned throughout my career in public education is that it takes all of us – teachers, staff, parents, and community members - to provide an extraordinary learning environment for our students. We must strive to be our very best each day as we create memorable and meaningful educational experiences for our students.
That is what I promise as your Rockwood Superintendent. I will listen, collaborate, learn, share, work hard, and strive every day to do my best for our children. Rockwood has earned a reputation for excellence in education. Together, I am confident we will continue this tradition of excellence as we utilize our newly developed strategic plan as a focus of our continuous improvement efforts.
In a few short weeks, we will start the new school year. If you would like to stay connected as we embrace this journey, please follow me on Twitter @RockwoodSupt. In addition, I will be hosting some informal community conversations in the near future, so be sure to look for more information on the Rockwood website.
I hope you enjoy the summer weeks ahead, and I look forward to seeing you soon!
Superintendent Dr. Mark Miles
