We want to hear stories and experiences from RPS 205 – and we want our staff, students, parents and community members to share them here on the Rockford Public Schools 205 VIBE – The Blog!

Writing a blog post is a great way to stay connected at other schools and build our community in RPS 205.

Need help brainstorming blog post topics? Check out some ideas:
