Greetings Bulldogs,

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year. I hope that you had a restful summer and had the chance to read a good book. We are excited about all that his new school year has to offer and look forward to working with our students and families as we focus on continuous improvement in teaching and learning, and all areas of our school environment. Class of 2026 welcome to the family. We look forward to seeing your academic and personal growth over the next 4 years.

This year we will renew our commitment to excellence in all that we do, with a resolute expectation that all students can learn and succeed. We will continue to provide students with opportunities to address academic deficiencies, to build numeracy and literacy skills, to make up missing credit, to be college or work force prepared, and to have the opportunity to participate in advanced academic classes. We will continue to implement initiatives to promote teaching and learning, and to engage all our stakeholders in the process of educating our students. The Rockdale County High School family will commit to continuous improvement in all aspects of our organization. We will continue to focus on efforts to improve student literacy. Improvements in literacy will positively impact student performance in every content area, and in their overall academic growth and development. We look forward to partnering with our stakeholders in these initiatives.

I am excited about all that this new school year has to offer and look forward to working collectively as a family to ensure that our students are provided with the best educational experience possible to be critical thinkers, responsible citizens, and prepared to be successful in their endeavors after high school. The school district through its partnership with Kids’-Doc-On-Wheels and our regional health department continues to provide access to COVID-19 testing and vaccinations for students and staff of RCPS, and their families. We will continue to implement mitigation measures as our Superintendent determines are needed to ensure that our staff and students’ safety and well-being are prioritized. I encourage you to become active members of the PTSA and the Bulldogs family and look forward to seeing you on campus for academic and extracurricular functions. It is going to be an amazing year.

Sincerely, Dr. Eldridge Powell Principal
