Note from the Principal
Dear Rock Creek families,
I trust that you all had a relaxing time with family and friends over the extended Labor Day weekend. My family and I enjoyed the weekend at my parent’s farm. We took naps, played board games, road on the Ranger, did some skeet shooting, went fishing, played a few games of corn-hole, sat on the front porch swings, and did a lot of catching-up and encouraging one another. Sounds exhausting, but it really wasn’t. It was extremely relaxing and rejuvenating. Isn’t it interesting that part of me wanted to get back to school and into our routine? I’d be willing to say that many of you are like me. Recreation and relaxation are necessary, but there is great joy in getting back into the swing of things and watching our children continue to grow socially, academically, physically and spiritually. The reality is that it’s the seemingly mundane things and struggles that seem to promote the most growth.
During a recent faculty meeting, we discussed the importance of mind set during times of struggle. Brain research has shown that different types of praise can impact mindset (Dweck, 2014). Fore example, focusing on “being smart” encourages a fixed mindset. However, praising effort cultivates a growth mindset. Having a growth mindset encourages students to accept challenges and learn from them, which promotes achievement. Though many would rather avoid struggles, some realize that it was through struggle that growth occurred. We encourage you join us as we focus on helping your child to continue to grow through struggles as we focus on our mission to “develop students with a heart for God, who grow as Jesus did in wisdom, stature and favor with God and man.” Development is key. We thank you for your partnership and trust as we work together to ensure that your child is being supported to develop independence and opportunities to reach their full potential as young ladies and gentlemen who impact the world for Christ. We are blessed with incredibly talented and dedicated teaching staff who are called and equipped by the Lord to live out this mission on a daily basis and we covet your prayers as we invest in your child.
All for His Glory,,

We have been blessed by our neighbor, Rock Creek Riding Club, to use their private property as a part of our carpool process. It has been brought to our attention that the stable does have regular events and it is very important that families follow these expectations for the safety of their riders and animals:
- Stay on the designated route for carpool (road only...do not cut through the lot, as this damages their tent pad areas).
- Speed is expected 7 mph
To better control vehicles and reduce the probability of a severe injury, cars may not pass in carpool.
Carpool Numbers are expected to be displayed.
- If you do not have a number card, please park in the gravel lot, enter the main entrance and notify the front desk.
- Please do not go through the carpool line without a number. This is for safety and security of our students.
·Display your carpool number(s) to be seen easily
-traffic is one way during drop-off and pick-up
·Shift your vehicle into the parked position while stopped and especially when loading.
·Stay in your lane (passing is not permitted)
·Once your children are safely loaded in your vehicle:
·Take down your number. (This signals to us you are ready to go.)
·If your children do not come out when their number is called, keep your number displayed. When the vehicles begin to move forward, we ask you to drive back around and renter the carpool line. (This will keep the lines moving and alert us that your child may need extra attention.)
- Please do not park in numbered spots if you are going into the school
- Please note: we only have one crosswalk for those who are parking and picking up
Thank you for your help as we assist families with safe drop-off and pick-up procedures. We are certainly better together!
If you arrive after 8:00 am, please walk your student(s) in to the front office to sign them in. The tardy bell rings at 8:00 am.
