Mrs. Schott and Mrs. Everett encourage parent involvement in influencing decision-making, so please consider becoming active in ways which are shared with Rockledge parents throughout each school year.  They will continue to work closely with staff to ensure you always feel that you are a welcomed member of the Rockledge family.
