Rockford Freshman Center

Tom Hosford - Principal

Kelly Amshey - Assistant Principal

Great start for the Class of 2023!!

The Class of 2023 includes over 600 students and each is unique in his/her own way. First impressions of this group are very positive. They are high energy, very polite, and youthful! It has been an honor to watch them begin to figure out high school and understand the building.

Part of high school is Homecoming! We hope that your student fully enjoyed the dance here at RFC. It is so fun to see them all dressed up! Our students were safe and seemed to have a lot of fun. We would like to thank all of the staff who helped chaperone the event, the student council members who organized, and our student council advisor, Mrs. Carey, whose efforts made it all possible.

Thanks again!

Tom Hosford
