Students, faculty and staff arrived back at school on Monday, March 21 after a week of spring break. Students and faculty returned to a busy schedule of events. Junior high tracksters under the direction of Coach Michael Brand competed at Zephyr on Monday, March 21. One Act Play presented August: Osage County at a dinner theatre Monday night for the community at the Richland Springs cafetorium. The theatre students under the direction of Patsy Hall also traveled to Mason on Wednesday, March 23 to compete in zone competition (our district is so large it is split into two zones). The top two plays advance to the District Contest at Mason on Wednesday, March 30. On Friday, March 25 the high school UIL academic competitors under the direction of Nelson Smith will travel to Knippa for the high school academic meet. Kudos to volunteer Melanie Smith who also helps students prepare for academic success in UIL events. In a small school many of the same students compete in multiple events and are shared among track, tennis, one act play and UIL academic coaches. I admire the students who share of their talents with the many events. Come out and watch our students in action. Thanks to the parents who support their students who compete for the Richland Springs Coyotes in both sports and academics. School pride is evident in all they do. Go Coyotes-Win State!
Attendance is important! Encourage your child to be at school everyday. When you see a teacher or staff member in public, let them know that their efforts are appreciated.
