 Thank you to all of families and students that participated in the Veteran’s Day assembly Thursday. Thank you to the Veterans that joined us. It was wonderful to see all of Rockdale ISD in the RHS gym celebrating Veterans. I was impressed with the poise of our students that presented and proud of our students in the stands for their participation in the event. Congratulation to senior Emma Mireles our Voice of Democracy winner her speech was a great addition to the Veteran’s Ceremony.

Students received their second six week’s report cards in 3rd period Thursday. Please ask them to share the information with you. Here is a copy of the semester exam schedule.

Three students, from the Rockdale High School Art Department, were juried into the Central Texas Art Competition, held at the Temple College Visual Arts Gallery.  Please offer congratulations to Angel Hollan, Dejah Oges, and Shaunacey Cloer.   Their work will be hanging in the Gallery until December 1st.

This Tuesday seniors Frances King (Midwestern State) and Lyndy Laurrell (Southwestern) will sign their National Letters of Intent to continue their sports careers and education after graduation. It will be fun to celebrate these two as they take their next step; we will be in the RHS Gym at 2:45pm.
