A NOTE FROM PRINCIPAL HAUGE
Welcome Back Students!
We have had a great first week of school and it’s been fabulous to have students in the building. I am impressed and proud of how respectful and well behaved our students are in the building and lunch room. We hope students and families have had a great start and are starting to establish routines. As Principal, I want to encourage families to reach out to staff or administration with any concerns or ways that we can help to improve your students experience this year. I feel blessed to be a Spartan and hope you will feel the same way during the 2022-23 school year.

We are committed to providing a safe and caring climate and culture for our students and staff while in our school. Our district and building leadership continuously review our safety procedures in partnership with local law enforcement to be sure we are making the best choices for our school community.
Through the work of this partnership, ROCORI Public Schools has been adjusting our safety procedures. This year, staff and students will discuss and practice possible responses to the unlikely event of an active threat. These responses include hiding and barring entry into the classroom or other safe space, distracting or evacuating the premises to a safe location.
These safety procedures will be taught and implemented in phases throughout the year. If you are interested in learning more about our updated safety procedures, please contact your child’s school principal.

HOMECOMING 2022 - MONDAY, SEPT. 19TH-SAT. SEPT. 24TH
ROCORI Schools will be celebrating Homecoming 2022 with numerous upcoming events during homecoming week which will occur from Monday, September 19th through Saturday, September 24th.
It is our intention to encourage everyone in the ROCORI community to get involved in homecoming and show their Spartan Pride. Here are some of the many events which will be available to participate in or attend.
Throughout the week at ROCORI Schools, students will celebrate homecoming during the school day with daily dress up themes, a walk through the schools with royalty and a grades 6-12 pepfest to help promote Spartan Spirit. However, most of the big events will happen outside of the school day.
On Monday, September 19th, the ROCORI Variety Show and Coronation will occur at 8PM in the RHS Gym. This event will feature numerous student acts displaying various talents and the announcement of the 2022 ROCORI Homecoming King and Queen.
On Wednesday, September 21st at 6PM the Junior Girls will compete with the Senior Girls for the Powder Puff Football Championship on Blattner Stadium at RHS. Following this event at 7:30PM the Junior Boys will play the Senior Boys in the Ironman Volleyball match in the RHS Gym.
Friday, September 23rd features the ROCORI Homecoming Parade at 4:15PM starting behind the DEF Building and ending at the parking lot by the stadium. Student groups K-12 are encouraged to show ROCORI Spirit by participating in the parade. We also need numerous family spectators along the marked route to cheer on the groups and pick up candy. At the end of the parade, various food items will be sold at the concessions area. The ROCORI Homecoming Football Game against Chisago Lakes will follow the parade starting at 6PM. The Fall Dance Team will perform right before the 6th grade football teams play at halftime.
Finishing the busy week on Saturday, September 24th, the Homecoming Semi Formal Dance will occur starting at 7pm for grades 9-12 in the RHS gym.
Although we did not include all possible homecoming activities in this announcement, we are trying to highlight some of the larger events. Please help celebrate homecoming by participating and showing your ROCORI Spartan Pride throughout the week at all events and don’t forget to buy your ROCORI Homecoming Button.
