Rock Bridge High School Newsletter April 30, 2022

Mission: Rock Bridge High School is a community in which ALL students and staff inspire each other to become lifelong learners.

Rock Bridge Families,

When we return from this weekend it will be May already. Very little time remains in this 2022 school year. Our Seniors will have ten days left, and the rest of us will have nineteen. The fast approaching end of a school year can be a highly motivating time for academic progress. The end is in sight, and we are all aware of what needs to be completed in these remaining days. Please take a moment, as a family, to discuss the outcomes you want from this school year and put actionable plans in place to achieve those goals.


May 2nd through 6th is National Teacher Appreciation Week. Our Rock Bridge High School Staff has felt a strong level of support from PTSA and all our families this year. We thank you for this! If you feel moved to do so, please send a kind note to a Rock Bridge Teacher next week. Notes of appreciation are often the greatest gifts educators receive.

April 28 (Final) IPR

Interim Progress Reports (IPR) were available in Home Access Center (HAC) through the CPS Families Portal at noon on Thursday, April 28th. Please go to the RBHS website for CPS Families Portal username and Guardian email information or for frequently ask questions.


We encourage families to view their IPRs together and talk about academic progress in each class. If there are questions related to content or progress grades, please reach out directly to the teacher of the course. Remember that IPRs are a snapshot of a single moment in time and there is significant time remaining in the school year for grades to move from their current spot.


We appreciate you partnering with us in our efforts to achieve the greatest possible academic outcomes!

Tutoring Center Reminder

As we wrap up this school year, it is inevitable that we are all needing some level of academic assistance. Rock Bridge provides our Tutoring Center for all students during each of the 8 blocks. Our Tutoring Center is staffed by Math, Science, and Studies certified teachers and students with interest (and competency) in each of these contents.


9th graders are able to access this assistance during the second half (45 minutes) of their Advisory class period. They can also use their time in Advisory to seek assistance from their 9th grade peers, Advisory Mentor, and their Advisory Teacher.


10th, 11th, and 12th graders are able to access the Tutoring Center during the first 45 minutes of their AUT. Please speak with your student and remind them that their AUT is the perfect time to get assistance with academics.

2022 Materials Collections

As we begin to wind down this 2022 school year we want to remind all RBHS Families to return all items you've checked out before the end of the school year. Any equipment or materials should be returned to the staff member or location where you checked it/them out.


ALL students will need to return their laptops, chargers, and other library materials to the RBHS Media Center by the last day of school. Students attending CPS Summer School will need to come to the Media Center at their convenience to have their laptop renewed.
