Spring is always a busy time for staff and students and parents. Traveling and participating in events such as Little Dribblers basketball, baseball, tennis, track, UIL academics, UIL one act plays and assorted meetings seems to leave little free time. Spring break is always a welcome event where students, faculty and staff can rest and revitalize for the remainder of the busy school year. Only ten weeks of school remain after spring break. Richland Springs students are enjoying spring break the week of March 15-19. School will resume on March 22nd.
The UIL high school spring academic meet will be held at Panther Creek on March 23 and 25. Students and teachers are working on final preparations for the academic meet. Two students have already qualified for the UIL state meet in Austin. Brennen McGinty and Stephen Fowler will be traveling to Austin along with UIL director Nelson Smith on Monday, March 15 to compete in Cross-X Debate. Good luck and bring home the gold. Students who place in state competition are eligible to apply for TILF Grants. 60 -70 % of students who apply for TILF Grants become recipients of grant funds.
The UIL one act play Close Ties will be performed for the public at the Richland Springs cafetorium on Monday, March 22.
