RHS Newsletter 8/11


RHS Newsletter

August 11, 2017

I hope you are enjoying the last weeks before school starts. I have been impressed with our students this week; a little over 50% of our students are involved in some activity to begin school (band, volleyball, football, cross country, cheer, Golden Girls, trainers…). We look forward to seeing you at Meet the Tigers Monday night to celebrate their upcoming season.

We are looking for a campus representative or two for the Campus Education Council (CEC). If you are interested in being the high school representative for CEC please respond to this email.

Class of 2018 Senior Portraits:  Rockdale Photography is the official photographer of Rockdale High School.  Schedule your appointment at their studio by calling 512-446-3346. They will take your yearbook shot (one outfit of your choice, cap & gown, and formal attire) for no sitting charge.  They also offer longer sessions with multiple backgrounds and outfit changes.  If you have questions, please contact Jocelyn Lewis at RockdalePhoto@att.net .  Those unable to attend sessions will have the opportunity to take a senior photo at RHS at a later date.

School Supplies: We suggest students bring a spiral and something to write with the first day of school. All students will need: 2 or 3 inch binder, dividers, pencil pouch, notebook paper, and blue or black pens, and highlighters if you want to beat the rush but know that more supplies may be required.

Senior Brag Ads: The Yearbook Staff is currently selling Senior “Brag” Ad space in our 2017-2018 Yearbook. Buying an ad for your senior is a wonderful opportunity to forever document the pride you have for your child, as well as the hopes and dreams you have for their future. Senior Brag Ad contract. Contact GLWalker@rockdaleisd.net

Support Shirts: spirit shirts supporting Project Graduation are for sale order forms are in the front office or with a senior for $15.00. The last day to order is August 31st.

Volunteer / Service Hours: If your student is trying to get a head start on volunteer hours for the 2017-2018 school year we have a list of activities posted in the office that they can do on campus before school starts. The high school is open Monday – Friday 8:00-4:00pm.
