We as a Rocket Family pride ourselves on being good citizens to the community that supports us in various ways. It has recently been brought to my attention that a few of our students who are taking Benton St. to and from school are entering our neighbors yards and harassing dogs, using loud profanity and screaming and disturbing a quiet neighborhood. Those students who are doing these things need to be called out by their peers and they most definitely will be called out by us. The police have also been contacted and will be watching for students who trespass into community members lawns. This is a crime. As rockets we take pride in thinking beyond ourselves and caring for others. Being kind to others and respecting others. ON a day to day basis the majority of you do demonstrate this belief and you make us proud. This announcement for a few of you to be better and do better. Think beyond yourself!
