Rock Hill has started the safety patrol program for our school. The safety patrol program was started by AAA in the 1920s. For more than 85 years, AAA clubs have sponsored, promoted, and aided school safety patrol programs as a community service in the interest of safety for all schoolchildren. The AAA safety patrol program has provided a safer pedestrian environment and a wide spectrum of educational opportunities for millions of children across the country, as well as, in 30 other countries.
This club is open to 5th grade students who demonstrate responsibility both in their academics and behavior. Students who are in safety patrol will wear a green belt (provided by the school) and help the duty teachers monitor and keep order in the hallways and sidewalks. Safety patrollers will meet with Mrs. Mather on a monthly basis to discuss issues/concerns they may have. Morning safety patrollers need to be at school by 8:30 in order to report to their post and afternoon safety patrollers need to be at their post for 3:15. In order for a child to be considered for safety patrol, parental permission is needed. The safety patrollers are chosen by their fifth grade teachers with input from other special area teachers who work directly with them. Consideration is given by marking period.
K-Kids is branch of the Kiwanis Club. The Rock Hill K-Kids Club provides children the opportunity to assist their school and the community of Wallingford, while learning leadership through service. The K-Kids Club plans and participates in community service projects. Some community service projects include: a food drive to benefit Wallingford residents, motivational posters to encourage respect and tolerance among students in the school, raising money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Pennies for Patients, and family participation in The Look for the Good Project. These projects help students to foster strong moral character and encourage loyalty to school, community, and our nation. The K-Kids make a significant difference in their school and community.

Fifth graders at Rock Hill have the opportunity to join the after school, Photography Club. We meet every few weeks to learn new photography techniques, meet professional photographers and utilize computer technology to edit our photographs. Once a month the whole club gets together to have a photography event! Some examples of field trips have been Gouevia Vineyards, downtown Wallingford, Marcus Cooke Park and community departments and businesses have visited our school. We work throughout the year towards our grand finale which is our giant Auction held in May in the Gym. We will be selling some of our pictures to raise money for next year’s students. All are welcome to come and check out our event!
