Assistant Regional Superintendent Jodie Atteberry

 

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2017-2018 school year. I hope you have enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing summer. Our work together this past year has brought collaboration and unification on many levels. With the start of the 2017-18 school year, I’m excited to continue our work together.

The 31st Annual  “CURRENT EVENTS CONTEST” sponsored by the Rock Island   County Regional Office of Education and Tammy L. Muerhoff, Rock Island County      Regional Superintendent of Schools, was held at Woodrow Wilson Middle School in May.

The 8th grade winners were as follows:

1st Place – Torin Kovach, Woodrow Wilson Middle School

2nd Place – Hailee Wasson, Seton Jr. High

3rd Place – Gage Mowry, Seton Jr. High

The Rock Island County Regional Office of Education and Tammy L. Muerhoff are excited to be hosting this event again in the spring.

ECO CAMP

ECO Camp is taking registrations now, for Friday, September 22, 2017. Also, the spring session has openings for a couple of groups on Thursday, April 26 and a couple on Friday, April 27, 2018.

It’s been a wonderful experience being able to attend such an outstanding event for our local students. Last year during the Fall & Spring sessions we had three schools representing over 195 students.

Some of the unique experiences for students have included: Professional biologists,   forestry experts, soil scientists, and a nature preserve ranger are just some of the  leaders who share their expertise with students who attend ECO-CAMP.  Students and their teachers travel the trails of Loud Thunder Forest Preserve to learn about forestry, soils, prairie, and/or wetlands from the experts.

Also, this field experience has direct application to the Illinois Learning Standards, including Illinois history.

Please contact Julie @ julie.cox@riroe.com or at 309-736-1111 for further information.

I look forward to the opportunity to serve the schools, staff and students of Rock Island County.
