STAAR testing starts next week for grades 4, 5, 7, 8, 9 and 11. Parent involvement is important! Schools must partner with parents and guardians to help each student understand their potential and reach a new level of achievement. We must stay positive in a society that loves to dwell on the negative. Life is good!
As golf season is at hand, here is a special shout-out to the 1967 Richland Springs Golf State Champions-Billy Fred Schneider, Ricky Lusty, Bobby Mask, Kenneth Land, & Rick Baskin who became State Champions 51 years ago
Community involvement is the key to our success!
