Dear Rossville Families,

I am pleased to welcome you back to the 2020-21 school year! I would like to extend a special welcome to all of the new families joining Rossville this year and welcome back all of our returning families as well! It is a privilege to be your principal. Our mission in Walker County is to equip each student to be ready for work, ready for college, and ready for life!

Our goal at Rossville is to work together and provide our students with a rich learning environment. Our teachers build relationships with their students and make this a safe place to learn! We will always put our students first, and encourage your support and involvement in the process. Our teachers work with the varying needs of our students and support them to help them be successful. If you ever have a question never hesitate to contact me. Go Bulldogs!
