Principal's Message

Principal’s Message:  Uncertain Times

This last week or so has certainly been a rollercoaster of emotion and has brought enough shock factor to last for a long, long time.  As I sat and watched the president address the nation in his oval office address, I couldn’t help feel like I was living in a movie of some sort.   This situation is uncharted territory for us all, and with uncertain times such as these we can experience a lot of stress, fear, and worry. Our kiddos are not any different.

Below are a few links that offer some insight for all of us and ways to support our kiddos in dealing with some of the stress over this situation:

Reading with Mr. Hunt

Principal Challenges School to Read for 60,000 Minutes in Three Days and He Will Go “Rustic for Reading” Sleeping on the School Roof. 

March 2 through March 6 will be Rockport Reads week at Rockport Elementary. Each day students may wear Dr. Suess themed attire, lunch will be book related (ex. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs - Meatball Sub Monday), there will be a read-a-thon, and guest readers will be coming to read throughout the week.

The principal, Mr. Rick Hunt, has also presented a reading challenge. If the school, as a whole (staff and students), reads for 60,000 minutes Monday - Wednesday of that week, Mr. Hunt will go “Rustic for Reading”. He will camp on the roof of the school for one evening!

Staff and students will be challenged to read each evening at home, during free time throughout the school day, and during planned reading activities in the day. Parents may also read to their child to help the minutes add up.

If the goal is reached, the entire school will come out to watch Mr. Hunt climb to the roof at the end of the school day on Thursday (1:30 PM CST). He will stay on the roof overnight and will be reading books aloud for anyone in the community that wants to come by and listen. On Friday morning (8:30 AM CST), the school will come back out and wake Mr. Hunt up from his slumber on the roof! (If weather is too poor to allow students to come
out, either to see Mr. Hunt to the roof or in the AM to come and wake him, we would do it the next good day.)

This year, Mr. Hunt set a goal of finding more ways to promote reading. He hopes to get more students engaged with books and help them find a love of reading. He has started a YouTube Channel where students can watch “Reading with Mr. Hunt”, allowing every student to have a way to listen to someone they know, reading books they love. There have been book giveaways, as well. Mr. Hunt hopes to see these small steps
help Rockport Elementary become a community of avid readers.

    • At the end of the day Thursday, if we hit the goal, the entire school will come out to watch Mr. Hunt climb to the roof.  He will stay on the roof overnight and will be reading books aloud for anyone in the community that wants to come by and listen.  On Friday morning, the school will come back out and wake Mr. Hunt up from his slumber on the roof!  (If weather is too poor to allow students to come out either to see Mr. Hunt to the roof or in the AM to come and wake him, we would do it the next good day.)
