For Parents
October 25, 2022

Rocky Run Middle School School has been selected to receive the School Year 2022-2023 Purple Star Designation from the Virginia Department of Education.  This is the second time Rocky Run has received this distinguished award.

The Virginia Purple Star Designation is awarded to military-friendly schools that have demonstrated a major commitment to students and families connected to our nation’s military. At Rocky Run, we work to support and recognize our military connected students with transition programs that help them adjust to our school, such as the Ambassadors program and middle school transition programs. We celebrate Month of the Military Child and host an annual Veterans' Day Breakfast to celebrate our military-connected families. 

Receiving the Purple Star is testament to our staff’s continued commitment in supporting military connected students and their families.  More info can be found at
