RIS Newsletter - November 20, 2017

Greetings from Rockdale Intermediate School!
We had a great turnout last week at our Thanksgiving luncheon. The students enjoyed lunch with family and friends and memories were made by all. Thank you for participating and helping make it one of the best attended meal yet.
We will not have iTigers this week as we will be closed Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to celebrate Thanksgiving. We hope our students and staff enjoy time with family and are safe over the holidays. We will have regular classes and hour on Monday and Tuesday.

Christmas Roundup Update - Food collections continued this week. Classes are competing to see which class can collect the most items for families in need. RIS will collect the following:
