Rocky’s Road is a legacy partnership with the Prince William County School district established in 2012 at Yorkshire Elementary School.
Rocky’s Road will demonstrate the power of mentorship, healthy lifestyles, on academic achievement. It is based on the belief that learning begins in the classroom but is a lifetime commitment. Healthy activities begin on the playground but live in every portion of our lives.
Rocky’s Road tracks the evolution of 26 kindergartners who have been identified as needing more support. We work with them and integrate a customized healthy mind/healthy body curriculum through Yorkshire Elementary School. Rocky’s Road is a comprehensive program that supports these students from kindergarten through 5th grade.
The program is led by local high school students and championed by 5th grade mentors who work with each student to set personal goals and track their progress through healthy mind/healthy body daily workbooks, weekly activities and monthly check-ins with their parents
All activities are entered into an online computer database which tracks the path of success down Rocky’s Road.
Rocky’s Road will show that with the right tools any student can achieve success.
