2012 Homecoming week is now history. A festive mood has engulfed the students. Even six-weeks testing can’t diminish the spirit from last week. The first six-week grading period ends October 5
The 2012 Homecoming Queen was announced at halftime of last Friday’s homecoming game against San Antonio Feast. 2012 Homecoming Queen is Miss Ashlyn Grady. The Coming Home King is Robert Lewis and the Coming Home Queen is Lola Fay Mask.

Ask kids, "Do you know why you’re going to school?" See what kind of responses you get. Then try to introduce them to the idea that their contribution is what it’s all about-the preparation, education, and all the learning they are doing. Help them figure out who they are, what their strengths are, and what their interests are. Because when students figure out what their strengths are and what their interests are, they can combine all that and figure out how to make the world a better place. As parents and educators we need to take those daily opportunities of contact with students more seriously and plant that seed, and maybe it’ll be one of those small things that’ll have a big impact for all of us some day.
Teaching is so complex. Real educators have to discover (through trial and error) the right answers to specific, small-picture questions about curriculum, classroom management, facilities management, extracurricular activities, dress codes, instructional technology, content delivery, test prep, and so many other things. And until Pearson Education Measurement can come up with formulas that accurately reflect the reality of this amazing thing called education, they won’t truly be measuring what they claim to measure, and many of us will insist that they add nothing of value to the conversation. Every day, teachers deal with kids from all realms of the spectrum, and we know that one test does not determine their value to society.
We have a great community, students, teachers and staff. It looks to be a great year at Richland Springs.
Community involvement is the key to our success
th. Parents should receive report cards the week of October 8-12. Parents should contact teachers with any concerns. Parent involvement is a key to student success.
