Welcome (Back) to Rolling Hills!

Happy September!


I am delighted to introduce myself as the new principal of Rolling Hills Primary School and look forward to working with you and your children.


Our faculty and staff members have been diligently preparing all summer to ensure that our students will have an excellent school year. We recently hosted a wonderful Open House and welcomed numerous students and their families to tour the school, visit their classrooms--and, in some cases--to meet their new teachers. I would like to thank all of the staff members who assisted with our visitors and the new RH SCA Board members, who took time out of their busy schedules to create a lovely bulletin board and welcome our families!


Thanks to Connect for Community's annual "Backpacks for Community" distribution, Rolling Hills has received 20 wonderful backpacks filled with basic school supplies and travel-size hygeine bags. If you know of a young student who would benefit from the receipt of a brand-new backpack to start the school year, please call the Rolling Hills main office. Thank you!


Please review all of the information in each monthly message so you can stay current with the upcoming events and spend some time enjoying photos from past events. We look forward to greeting your children on Tuesday, September 6th and hope to see all of our parents/guardians on Monday, September 12th. Please be sure to join us for an informative evening!


Although I strongly encourage you to reach out directly to your child's teacher(s) with issues pertaining to instruction, please be assured that I remain committed to every students' educational experience and encourage you to reach out to me if I may be of assistance throughout the school year.


Wishing you all the best for '22-'23,



Pauline F. Anderson, Principal

September's message focuses on self-care, for when you are feeling your best, you are better able to handle all that daily life brings your way.
