The Roderick Review

June 2022

June Announcements

After a wonderful and unique year filled with excitement and lots of learning, we hope all Roderick families have a relaxing summer vacation! We look forward to having all Roderick students spend quality time with family, socialize with friends, and read over the months of July and August. We know that all of our 6th grade students will have a successful transition to the King Philip Middle School both academically and socially.

Thank you to the PTO and WEST for their continued support of the Roderick School throughout the 2021-2022 school year. As always, if you have any questions or concerns at the end of the school year, please do not hesitate to let me know.


Mr. Kevin Martes
