The Optimist Club is again offering a “Free Pick” pumpkin event for students 10 years old and under. The event is this Saturday, Oct. 16 at 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. The site is on 6th street about ¼ mile East of US 31. The address is 1250 W 6th Street, Rochester, IN. Anything a student can carry is theirs to keep.
There are two 4’ x 4’ signs by the field so it’ll be easy to find and there will be club members on hand to provide directions as needed.
We appreciate your questions and concerns regarding the restructuring of our district.
Q: Will first and second grade students have the opportunity to tour Riddle?
A: Yes. In May, the first grade students and the second grade students will come tour Riddle with their respective classes. We will show them the whole building and where their classes will be. We typically do this with the second grade class every year and we will add the first grade class as well.
Q: Can I (Parent) visit the school with my student?
Q: Will my student be rotating classes at all?
A: No. Your second grade and third grade student will not be rotating classes. They will have one assigned teacher just like at Columbia.
Q: Will there be an Open House?
A: Yes. Riddle and Columbia will coordinate a time for incoming students and parents to come see the school and meet their new teachers.
