I hope you had a fabulous Thanksgiving and were able to enjoy time with family and friends. Just wanted to touch base with everyone as we wrap up the final weeks of 2017.

During the holiday season there are a lot of opportunities for students to volunteer on campus and in the community. This is a great opportunity for students to earn hours toward Silver Cord of Service. Opportunities for service are listed in the rotunda and on the RHS webpage.

STAAR EOC retesting is next week on campus. Students that need to retest will test during the morning. Please make sure to plan appointments around testing if possible:

English 1 Monday, December 4th

Algebra 1 Tuesday, December 5th

English 2 Wednesday, December 6th

Biology & US History, December 7th

 Christmas Round-Up: The high school will support Christmas Round-Up by collecting items for the food drive. We will have bins in the office and all items must be received by end of day December 6th: 9th grade – canned chicken / 10th grade – cornbread mix (2 pkgs = 1 item) / 11th grade – instant potatoes / 12th grade – Ramen Noodles (6pkgs = 1 item). Students can donate 1 of each item for a service hour. Beginning 11/13 students may also turn in items to Mrs. Thomas to replace detentions (1 item) and Saturday School (3 items).

 Drivers Education: In the past Rockdale ISD and iTigers has contracted services for Driver’s Education due to changes with the provider and increased prices we will not be offering Driver’s Education classes this summer.
