Happy New Year! We look forward to seeing students Thursday, January 4th to start the second semester. Report cards from the third six weeks will be distributed to students the week of January 8th. When we return next week spring semester schedules will be available to students in the rotunda.

Parents if you have had a change of address, email, or a new phone number please contact Gloria Thomas (512) 430-6140 so that we can update your emergency contact information.

Just a reminder we are at that time of year when students need to restock paper, pencils, and folders. Take a few minutes this weekend and inventory the backpack; we want to start the New Year off on a good note for homework and classwork!

Congratulations to our STATE CHAMPION ROCKDALE TIGER FOOTBALL. I felt a little lost this week without a football game to attend J Many of you have asked questions about how, when, where, and what we will do the celebrate this huge accomplishment. Please know that we will have details out to you by the end of the week and will communicate it on our webpage, social media, and through the newsletter.

Best wishes to you and your family for a great 2018.
