Animal Science Learns How to Cure Country Hams


The Robertson County Animal Science class learned how to cure country hams "the old fashioned way." Robertson County residents Tom and Carol Mitchell were on hand to provide step-by-step instruction, along with family history, of the ham curing process.  The lesson for the day was hands on as the students completed step one with six hams with Mr. and Mrs. Mitchell leading the class.  The project will be continued over the next couple of months.  Click on "Read More" to see more pictures.

Carlee Courts Completes Sight Words


Kindergarten started a sight word list at the end of November 2016.  There are 22 lists, with a total of 10 words on each list, plus six sentences that need to be done before the student can get the next list.  They are to bring them back and read the words and sentences fluently before they are allowed to get the next list.  Carlee Courts is the first kindergarten student this year to complete all 22 sight word lists.  She started with her first list on December 1, 2016 and finished the last list on February 17, 2017.  She got to announce over the intercom to the whole school what she had accomplished and as she was headed back to her classroom, she was greeted with cheers from middle school, high school and elementary students lined up in the hallways clapping and cheering for her.  We here at RCS are very proud of her accomplishment.  She will now start reading books and doing a worksheet that goes with each book.  Congratulations, Carlee!

Week 4 Attendance Champs



Look out for Mrs. Treva's 3rd grade.  They are the new attendance champions.  They said, "Coming to school is a breeze!" as they had the best attendance percentage for what was a windy, wild week of weather.  Third grade is planning on making sure they become the first class to hold the belt two weeks in a row.  "Catch us if you can!!!" Check back on Monday to see if they retain the title, or another class fights their way to the top.  Click on "Read More" to see past winners.

Our school messenger system, that sends out text messages and call reminders, went through an update this weekend and we realized a lot of numbers were lost. If you did not get a text message that said "test" today, we need you to do a couple of things. 

1. Text the word "yes" to the number 68453. If that works, you will get an instant reply that says you are now enrolled with school messenger. 

2. If you try that and it doesn't work, call 606-724-5421 and ask them to verify that you are in the system and that we have your correct number. 

3. If you have never received messages and would like to, call 606-724-5421 and ask that you be entered into the system. 

We want to get everyone updates as soon as possible., especially before we start making announcements for weather delays and closings. 

Thank you!  Please share with anyone who may not be on Facebook or keep up with our school webpage.
