This week is "Teachers Appreciation Week", and we want to take this opportunity to thank the teachers for their dedication to the education of our children. The children of today will be the leaders of our nation for tomorrow. So goes the leaders, so goes our nation and so goes our future. We truly appreciate you, the teachers, who form the ideals of our future leaders. Thanks so much for what you do each and every day.

Just 4 weeks of school remain in the 2017-2018 school year. High school students completed Algebra I, Biology, and U. S. History End of Course exams this week. Many banquets occur at the end of school. This week we have the Mirabeau B. Lamar Banquet, the Rotary Honor Banquet, and the annual Alumni Banquet. This year the alumni from all the graduating classes ending with 8 will be honored (1928, 1938, 1948, 1958, 1968, 1978, 1988, 1998, 2008 and 2018).
Students who maintain a grade of 90 or above are invited each year to the Rotary Honor Student Banquet. This Thursday, twenty-one high school students from Richland Springs have maintained a 90 or above average and will attend this banquet.

Athletic director Thomas Tipton is proud to announce that junior Berkeley Mann is headed to the High School State Track Meet in Mike Myers Track Complex in Austin this week. Berkeley qualified in both the 100M run and the 400M run. Quite an accomplishment! Bring home the gold!
If you see a teacher in public, tell them how much you appreciate their efforts. We have a great community, students, teachers and staff.
Community involvement is the key to our success!
