ROCORI SECONDARY SCHOOL NEWSLETTER

September 2, 2021

Hello ROCORI Families!

I am excited and honored to begin this year as the new Secondary Principal at ROCORI! I have lived in this community for three years, have students who attend RMS, and have thoroughly enjoyed meeting staff over the last week. I look forward to meeting you and your students at entrance conferences and getting to know our families during this year. If you see me in school or the community, please say hello and introduce yourself.

We want to make sure all our students are ready for entrance conferences and have everything they need to begin the school year. We understand the transition this is for our 6th grade students especially. Please review all the information in the newsletter, and if you have questions, please reach out to me or my teammate in the office Dee Torborg: torborgd@rocori.k12.mn.us

This is going to be a great school year and our teachers, custodial and office staff have worked tirelessly to be ready to have students in the building. ROCORI is a great school system with a proud tradition, and I’m happy to be a part of the team.

Go Spartans!
