Evan Ellis Masters 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.  Evan Ellis is the second Kindergarten student this year to complete all 22 sight word lists.  He started with his first list on December 7, 2016 and finished the last list on March 17, 2017.  He got to announce over the intercom to the whole school what he had accomplished and as he was headed back to his classroom, he was greeted with cheers from middle school, high school and elementary students lined up in the hallways clapping and cheering for him.  We here at RCS are very proud of his accomplishment.  He will now start reading books and doing a worksheet that goes with each book.  Congratulations, Evan!

Week 9 Attendance Champs


For our second two-peat champions the winners of Week Nine are the gnarly Ninth graders of Mr. Miller’s homeroom.  These ninth graders are no ninnies as they nix the rumors that all ninth graders are Nancy s (sorry Nancy Burns) by becoming the first high school class named number one since they won it in week 3.  Ninth graders say nobody is going to knock them off the knoll.  Check in next Monday to be in the know.  



Superintendent Student Advisory Council

RCS 4th Grader Honored in Capitol Rotunda


Rep. John Sims, Hadleigh Linville, and RCS Superintendent Holbrook

Congratulations Hadleigh Linville! She was chosen as one of sixteen state winners of the Piggy Bank Design Contest. The contest focused on demonstrating artistic creativity along with comprehension of the importance of saving money. 
Hadleigh was recognized as part of the “Kentucky Saves Week” celebration at the Capitol Rotunda in Frankfort on February 28th.  Kentucky Saves is part of the nationwide “America Saves” effort focused on making household savings a priority. In the current economic condition, many families have found themselves without enough savings to survive financial crisis. “Kentucky Saves” is an effort that promotes positive saving habits to help Kentuckians work toward financial stability.  



Commissioner Dr. Stephen Pruitt Visits RCS


Commissioner Dr. Pruitt with Head Starter Mathew McKee

Robertson County School continues to celebrate academic success!  On March 2, we were privileged to host Commissioner Dr. Stephen Pruitt at Robertson County School. Commissioner Dr. Pruitt awarded the senior class of 2017 with their 100% Career and College Ready Banner.  Students and staff in pre-school through second grade and the ninth grade class participated in a Vocabulary Parade celebrating their love of words and reading while the entire student body enjoyed the parade.  The Commissioner, Mr. Richard Gimmel (State Board of Education Member) and Ms. Leslie Slaughter (from the Commissioner’s Office), toured classrooms after the parade.  Mr. Gimmel and the Commissioner were just in time to feed the lambs in our Robertson County School state of the art Agriculture facilities.  A special thanks to Erica Carpenter, RCS Librarian and Music Teacher, for coordinating and organizing the reading events for the week.  Ms. Carpenter wrote and received a grant for Robertson County School to be able to enjoy their week long special reading activities and events.  Click on "Read More" for more pictures.

New School Messenger Sign-up

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.

We Are RCS!!!
