About Council Rock Primary School


    Welcome to Council Rock Primary School! We are excited for you to learn more about us. We love to work with our youngest learners as they begin their education, building a foundation for their future. Our hope for each Council Rock student is to instill confidence and a love of school and learning while providing opportunities for children to explore and learn how they fit into a larger community.

    We are proud to be a “Habits of Mind Learning Community of Excellence”. Over your time here at Council Rock, we hope to instill in your child (and in you and your family) the importance of these Habits of Mind that we all use everyday to be a successful learner and citizen of the world.

    While we emphasize cooperation and foster a spirit of community, we also value each student for the unique qualities they possess. Children of differing abilities, talents, interests, and backgrounds enjoy working and playing together. They explore, manipulate, and create in a safe, nurturing environment.

    We value our partnership with parents! Many opportunities exist to have your voices heard as we lay the groundwork for success for our smallest citizens to learn, grow, and blossom. We are excited to welcome back our parents to visit for lunch with their child, volunteer in their classroom, or participate on a committee. All are rewarding experiences. 

    Last, but certainly not least, we value regular communication with our families. This happens through the use of See Saw, classroom newsletters, teacher and school web pages, report cards, conferences, the Tappon Times, email, and eNews.

    Together, we can make a huge difference for our Council Rock students! We look forward to your partnership.
