Renovation plans for Rockway’s new basement

This summer, we are renovating some Rockway facilities, specifically the basement and Assembly Area: reconfigured art and family studies spaces; more digital media spaces; and, new floors, ceilings, and large glass doors for a more open concept (please see below). The Assembly Area will get a complete makeover too! – ceiling, floors, sound, and lighting…all of this to give students better learning experiences.

Revitalizing the school is one of four priorities contained in Lead Us Onward, a road map to bright futures for Rockway students:

  1. Fuel Sustainable Mission – financially sustain Rockway’s mission and enable students to thrive here.
  2. Embrace All Students – continue to support families and students – build respect and grow enrolment – so that more students can benefit from a Rockway education.
  3. Inspire Minds – give students exceptional learning experiences – build wonder – inside and outside the classroom, such as the new business program.
  4. Revitalize facilities and equipment – equip students with the best possible learning environment and tools.

Lead Us Onward is a 4 year campaign (2016/2017 – 2019/2020) to raise $3 million. Thanks in large part to a $625,000 matching pledge by a local family, we have received gifts and pledges for over $1 million so far!

We are all Rockway – students, parents, families, volunteers, Alumni, faculty, staff, Board members, and community members. This is your school and your opportunity to support bright futures for our young people and beyond.
