Rockingham County Schools is preparing for our next strategic planning cycle.  We are recruiting parents and students to serve on our Advisory Councils.  We have placed on our district and school websites two survey forms for interested parents and students to complete.  Representatives will be selected from the list of applications to ensure that each zone is represented and we have demographic representation across the county.  Students in grades 5 - 12 will be able to complete the survey also to represent student voices and opinions on the council.  The survey applications will be active on the websites beginning Friday, April 16 and will remain open through Friday, April 30.  Selected representatives will be notified during the week of May 3.  Our first advisory council meetings will be held during the week of May 10.  Thank you for your interest in providing feedback to the district as we strategically plan for our future success.  Please contact Charles Perkins at the Central Office with any questions.

If you have not registered for classes for next year please review your resources on our Student Services website and contact your guidance counselor if you have any questions.    Attention Seniors, If you have not done so, please go under Senior News on our school website for information about your senior order. This is very important and needs to be addressed immediately.  As always, thanks for all you do for our students.

We are constantly working to improve our program.  Rosalina Webster and Taylor Apple are the instructors.  Contact Jim Carroll at or 336 634-3220 extension 218.

Here is a picture of our Olive Tree in bloom. Blooming Olive Trees are extremely rare in NC. RCHS's Horticulture Department was lucky to have it come into bloom this winter There will probably not be enough to harvest but hopefully we will be able to see a few olives mature this year!

Students in Taylor Apples Ag Mechanics II class put their new Multimatic Miller Welder to the test. 

Thank you Leaksville

Fire Department

A huge Rockingham County High School THANK YOU to Leaksville Fire Department and their Chief Chuck Yarbrough for their donation of turn out gear, self contained breathing apparatus and other items to our Public Safety Academy.  Without donations from local departments our academy would face large financial strains.  Donated equipment always goes to good use.  Thanks again to Chief Yarbrough and the Leaksville Fire Department.
