Never underestimate the value of an education. Statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau confirm the economic benefits to individuals of formal education:
- High school dropouts were earning in 2014 an average of $21,421 annually.
- High school graduates earned an average of $31,286.
- Those with bachelor’s degrees earned an average of $57,181.
- Individuals with master’s degrees had an average income of $70,186.

We must make the investment now for our children, who will, in turn, ensure our future.
Ag science teacher Shawn Dennis supported San Saba County students at the State Fair of Texas. Mr. Dennis is proud to announce that Wade Appleton exhibited the Grand Champion Barrow at the State Fair in Dallas. This is quite an accomplishment!
It was a great week for Coyote football. The varsity Coyotes outscored the Sterling City Eagles 56-6 last week. It was a cool, picture-perfect autumn night, and was a great culmination to an exciting week with Fox Sports Southwest on campus for the Thursday night blackout pep rally. The junior high and varsity cheerleaders had an outstanding performance at the blackout pep rally.
The junior high team will host Austin Royals at 6:00 p.m. this Thursday at Coyote Field. The junior varsity Coyotes will host Ft. Worth THESA at 6:00 p.m. Friday, followed by the varsity game at 7:30 p.m.
100% of the parents of 1st graders, 2nd graders, 4th graders, 6th graders, and Peggy Tompkins’ students attended Open House. These students were treated to a pizza lunch for getting their parents at Open House last week. Thanks to all the parents who attended Open House.
Attendance is important also! Richland Springs had 51 students with perfect attendance the first 6-weeks of school. Thanks to these students and parents for understanding how important daily attendance is to student success!
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!
