RIS Newsletter - December 4, 2017
Greetings from Rockdale Intermediate School!
November was a busy month for RIS with Veteran's Day, EAFK and the Thanksgiving holidays. However, our students have found time to work hard and prepare for UIL. We are excited to host our academic UIL competition on Tuesday, December 5th at RIS. In order to accommodate all of the events, RIS will release at noon and bus transportation will be provided at that time. Parents received a call out to remind them of the early release last week. There will be no iTigers on Tuesday at RIS.
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:
- Macaroni and Cheese
- Cocoa Mix
- Canned Chicken
Each item collected is worth 1 point. The class in each grade level with the most points by December 8th will receive a party and movie. Below are the class totals as of today.
Families in need of support this Christmas can signup for Christmas Roundup by completing an application and returning it to RIS by December 8th. Please contact Keely Reisner, RIS counselor, for more information at 512.430.6200 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to a great week at RIS!
Kathy Pelzel, Principal
