Dear Parents and Community Stakeholders, 

On behalf of the staff at C. J. Hicks School, I am happy to welcome you to the 2018-19 school year! In support of the innovative RCPS’ strategic planning, we too are committed to move from Good to Great to World Class. We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities.

I continue to be inspired by the dedicated staff and families in this community and look forward to getting to know our new team members. C.J. Hicks is a school where students are supported and encouraged to grow in all areas- academically, socially and emotionally. I am fortunate to be a part of this high-quality learning community, and I speak on behalf of the entire staff when I say we are excited to have each of you as part of our school community. It takes all of us to help each and every child reach his/her potential, and we look forward to sharing in your child's learning experiences. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

1) Attends school daily and arrives on time, ready for the day’s learning experience

2) Completes all homework assignments given by teachers

3) Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills

4) Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life

5) Informs you if he/she needs additional support in any area or subject

6) Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and go on to college

Please consider joining our school volunteer program as our students can greatly benefit from your involvement and contributions to the school’s program and its operations.  Mrs. Cheryl Julien, parent liaison, is the gatekeeper for volunteerism at C. J. Hicks.  She can be reached at 770.483.4410 or by E-mail at  We seek volunteers to help us with the following activities: 

1) Teacher-led instructional support, usually in the classroom

2) Reading with children who need extra help

3) School-wide events

4) Student recognition events

5) Outreach and recruitment of parent and community volunteers

Working together we will have a wonderful year filled with learning, lifelong relationships and the joys of success and accomplishment. I look forward to meeting each of you, and to working with you and your children throughout the year.

Warm Regards,

Mr. Tiwon U. Toney, Principal
