The spring season is a busy time of year for students, teachers and staff. Exit level ELA TAKS testing begins in earnest March 4th. Parents should encourage their junior students to get a good night’s sleep on the night before the test and to eat a hearty breakfast on the day of testing.
Junior high and high school track practice is underway. Girls’ softball practice is underway. One Act Play is also underway under the direction of Patsy Hall and Krystal Butler. According to Mrs. Hall, it is tough getting all students to rehearsal. The One Act Play cast and crew traveled to Stamford ISD this past week for a OAP clinic. Richland Springs ISD also hosts a OAP clinic on Thursday.
Mr. McKee has been on the road to the major stock shows. He reports that Richland Springs’ students continue to do well at major stock shows. Berkeley Mann placed 3rd in her steer class at San Angelo. Bralei Lewis had a 5th place class 2 goat at San Antonio. Congrats to Berkeley and Bralei on their success.
Spring is approaching and tornadoes become a possibility. Tornado Drill/Winter Weather Awareness Week is March 18-22. Richland Springs ISD participates in a tornado drill each spring in conjunction with the National Weather Service.
In the event of a real tornado warning...you should seek shelter in a center room of the lowest floor in your home, school or business. Place as many walls between you and the outside as possible. An interior hallway or bathroom or closet on the lowest floor offers the best protection. Stay away from windows and doors. Get low and cover your head. Avoid rooms with large roof spans...such as gymnasiums or cafeterias.
We have a great community, students, teachers and staff. It looks to be a great year at Richland Springs.
Community involvement is the key to our success!
