RIS Newsletter - September 11, 2017
EarlyAct FirstKnight is a character education program sponsored by Rockdale Rotary Club, EAFK motivates and teaches students to become civil, service-oriented people during their most formative years.
This is the second year that Rockdale Intermediate School has participated in the FirstKnight program. The goal of the event is to inspire students to commit to the EAFK program throughout the school year where they will learn and apply concepts like respect, personal responsibility, honesty, compassion, fairness, tolerance and service to others. Contact our counselor, Keely Reinser, at 512.430.6200 for more information.
Gold Out Pep Rally : RIS students will attend the Gold Out Pep Rally at Rockdale High School on Friday, September 15, 2017 at 9:00 am. Students must be on time to school as students can not be dropped off at RHS by parents if they are late. Also, if you need your student before 11:00 am you will need to let us know before the end of the day of Thursday, September, 14, 2017 so that we can make arrangements for your student not to attend the pep rally.
Students are encouraged to wear a Gold Out Shirt to the pep rally and football game. We will also take a school photo after the pep rally with students who are wearing Gold Out Shirt. Forms are available in the office to purchase the 2017 Gold Out Shirts. The shirts are $10.
If you have any questions, please contact counselor Keely Reisner at 512.430.6200.
Have a great week!
Kathy Pelzel, Principal
