• School Pictures

    Picture Day has come and gone. Bell Photography did a great job and we are glad to be working with them. Make ups or retakes are scheduled for October 28th.

  • Board and FSO Changes

    We express gratitude for the efforts of Annette Webster and Mark Lofgren for their service on our governing board and wish them well. With their resignations, come a need to staff our board with people who are willing to help the school continue to improve. Specific needs would be in finance, business, and/or in non-profits. Please email the board your letter of intent including past experience that could be applicable to serving on a volunteer governing board. These should be sent directly to board@rockwellhigh.net or through Mr. Beck, dbeck@rockwellhigh.net. Your consideration of this effort is appreciated.

    Many schools have a PTA, some even have a PTO, but Rockwell has our FSO (Family School Organization). Every parent is a member and can be involved in meaningful ways to support Rockwell's continued growth. Sammie Anderson has been appointed as our new FSO President and she is excited to be involved. One of Sammie's main efforts this year is to get more parents involved as it works for them as well as to support teacher projects and activities that simply may not fit in the budget. Please send an email if you have something you'd like to do to help. Either email Sammie at rockwellfso@gmail.com or email a member of administration. Thank you ahead of time for any support you can lend.

Dear Rockwell,

Dear Rockwell,

The Utah State Office of Education has officially released SAGE assessment data. While Rockwell scored 23% on Language Arts (state average is 42%), 18% on Math (state average is 39%), and 33% on Science (state average is 44%), the good news is that we are not the lowest in the state. We have our work cut out for us as this test is more difficult for students and requires a better focus.

Here is a comparison between Rockwell and schools we compete with for enrollment, in sports, and in other ways:
UCAS, 71% LA, 68% Math, 76% Science - in the top 10% of secondary schools
WestLake HS, 50% LA, 27% Math, 53% Science
Frontier MS, 43% LA, 41% Math, 57% Science
Vista Heights MS, 51% LA, 55% Math, 65% Science
Pioneer HS, 35% LA, 16% Math, 33% Science
Paradigm HS, 33% LA, 11% Math, 33% Science
Summit Academy HS, 31% LA, 13% Math, 32% Science
Pinnacle Canyon Academy, 16% LA, 13% Math, 17% Science

In addition to this data, it is our privilege to share our term 1 GPA information and our 4.0 students:
7th grade, 20 students received a 3.5 or higher GPA with 5 earning 4.0s.
8th grade, 30 students received a 3.5 or better with 8 earning 4.0s.
9th grade, 27 students received a 3.5 or better with 10 earning 4.0s.
10th grade, 31 students received a 3.5 or better with 4 earning 4.0s.
11th grade, 31 students received a 3.5 or better with 4 earning 4.0s.
And last, but not least, 12th grade, 21 students received a 3.5 or better with 4 earning 4.0s.

We are proud of these students and their achievements.

Term 2 is off and running, so please make the effort to be to class on time, get your work done and turned in, and do your best on quizzes and tests. Math Lab is available on Tuesday and Thursday, 3:30 - 4:30 and all teachers have expressed their willingness to tutor and help before or after school if students speak up. Term 2 ends on Friday, December 19th, so the clock is running.

Best always and stay tuned for information as to how we can all continue to work together to improve student achievement,

Darren Beck,
Director
Rockwell Charter High School
