A Message From our Principal:

Welcome Back to School and I hope everyone had an amazing summer break! I would like to start by personally
thanking everyone for making me feel incredibly welcome as I settle in as Principal of Big Rock School. I would
also like to extend a special welcome to all of the new families that are joining us at Big Rock this year.
Big Rock is truly an amazing school community. Amazing school communities are the result of amazing staff,
amazing parents, and most of all amazing children. I am looking forward to having an absolutely phenomenal
year at Big Rock.

So far, this year is off to a great start. A huge thank-you to Mr. Halase for putting together an amazing
slide show for our start-up assembly. It was great to see the wonderful activities and celebration that
occurred last year at Big Rock, and I am equally excited to start creating wonderful memories for this year.
Speaking of wonderful memories, on September 9th we had
our back to school pancake breakfast sponsored by Denny’s and Big Rock School Council. It was a beautiful
morning of breakfast and spending some time together as a school. This is the first of many activities
sponsored by our School Council. If you are interested in being part of our School Council, please come
to our next meeting.

I am very excited for the incredible opportunities and learning that will occur this year at Big Rock.
As a community, we are going to work hard, play hard, and learn at very high levels together! When you
walk into our gymnasium, you will see in big, bold letters: “This School is for Kids!”

This statement epitomizes what it means to come to Big Rock School. We have an amazing and dedicated
staff that work tirelessly to provide an outstanding education for your children in a safe and caring
learning environment. I am very excited to see the outstanding accomplishments that will unfold this
year as a result of engaged learners working hand in hand with the dedicated staff at Big Rock School.

Looking forward to a phenomenal year!!!

Yours in Learning,

Scott Carey
