Now that the weather has cleared up Senioritis and Spring Fever are definitely in the air! Please keep encouraging your student to focus on academics and attend tutorials. For those students that are participating in spring extracurricular events please remind them to stay in contact with teachers, get their assignments BEFORE they travel when possible, and schedule retests when needed.

 

Congratulations to seniors Tyler Lehmkuhl, Torry Locklin, Brajon Ayala, Carlee Morgan, Jordan Jerman and Hailey Wilson they were selected as outstanding students for their character and service and will be recognized by the Rockdale Chamber of Commerce this week.
