Richland Springs students celebrate Red Ribbon Week each October. Red Ribbon Week encourages students to remain drug-free. Sherriff Department personnel Allen Brown, Todd Milster, James Barrows, John Paul Collins, Bill Price, and K-9 Freddie presented two programs to students (PreK-6 & 7-12) about Choices and Consequences. In coordination with Missy King and the Central Texas Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse, students received red ribbons, bracelets, pencils, and they signed cards promising to remain drug-free.
The Richland Springs’ 4-H club under the guidance of Valerie Gossett held their monthly meeting on Nov. 3rd after school. These students are learning citizenship skills that will last a lifetime. Sara Hedley spoke with the 4-H members about 4-H Shooting Sports and gun safety. The 4-H students are great stewards of our campus. Thanks 4-H!
October was Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Faculty and students participated in ‘HATS ON DAY’. Through this fundraiser the faculty and students of Richland Springs ISD donated around $200 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation for breast cancer research. Thanks to Pam Starr and the varsity cheerleaders, Ashley Ferguson, Stormi Davee, Desirae Bessent, Kensie Green, Cheyenne Tharp, Emily Smith, Courtney Herbert, and Brooklyn McGinty for their efforts to make this happen!
It’s great to see our community supporting students in their efforts to achieve. We have a great community, students, teachers and staff. It takes everyone working together to achieve success. Thanks for all you do!
Community involvement is the key to success!
