Spring is always a busy time for staff and students and parents. Traveling and participating in events such as tournament 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 14-18. School will resume on March 21st.
The UIL high school spring academic meet will be held at Knippa on March 25. Students and teachers are working on final preparations for the academic meet. Four students have already qualified for the UIL state meet in Austin. Brennen McGinty, Patrick Phillips, Thomas Fowler, and Stephen Fowler will be traveling to Austin along with UIL director Nelson Smith on Monday, March 14 to compete in Cross-X Debate. Thanks to the Cross X debaters for taking part of your spring break to represent our school. 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.
