Homecoming week is underway and a festive mood has engulfed the students. Even six-weeks testing can’t diminish the spirit. The first six-week grading period ends October 1st. Parents should receive report cards the week of October 4-8. Parents should contact teachers with any concerns. Parent involvement is a key to student success.
Grades 9-12 have nominated their respective class sweethearts for homecoming queen honors. Miss Taylor Terry is the freshman class nominee, Miss Brooklyn McGinty is the sophomore class nominee, Miss Stormi Davee is the junior class nominee, and Miss Brooke Bennett is the senior class nominee. The 2010 Homecoming Queen will be announced prior to the start of Friday’s homecoming game against Gustine. 2009 Homecoming Queen Miss Ashley Ferguson will present the crown to the 2010 Homecoming Queen. The Coming Home King and Queen will also be announced prior to start of the game.
The Richland Springs junior high and junior varsity will play at Gustine beginning at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 30. The junior high was defeated by Rochelle last week 32-20. The Richland Springs junior varsity was victorious over San Antonio Feast 52-0. The cheerleaders will have a black-out pep rally in the gym on Wednesday at 7:30, and the homecoming spirit bonfire will follow immediately.
The varsity Coyotes will play Gustine at 7:30 at Coyote Field on Friday. The varsity Coyotes remain unbeaten at 5-0 with a 56-0 victory over San Antonio Feast. This will be the last non-district game of the season. Come out and support our young athletes in UIL competition and enjoy the Homecoming festivities.
