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.  Adielynn Turner is the fifth Kindergarten student this year to complete all 22 sight word lists.  She started with her first list on December 9, 2016 and finished the last list on April 24, 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, Adielynn!

RCS Scorekeeper Joins 10th Region Hall of Fame

11

Robertson County Lady Devils scorekeeper, Lisa Mitchell, was inducted into the 10th Region Girls Basketball Association Hall of Fame on Sunday, April 9, 2017.  Lisa Mitchell was inducted as a contributor to the 10th Region for her many years of service to the Deming and Robertson County girls’ basketball program.  Lisa is an alumnus of Deming High School, playing basketball for the school, was a member of the 1980 38th District Championship team.  She moved to the scorer’s table when her daughters (Jessica- Deming Class of 2012 and Lacey- Robertson County Class of 2015) began playing the sport.  During that time, she became the team mother.  It was also during that time she got to be part of another special moment, the 2012 Deming Team that won the 38th District Championship, the first since her 1980 title.  Both daughters were starters on that team, and was coached by her nephew.  Today Lisa is still part of the Lady Devils program, keeping score while daughter Lacey serves as an assistant coach.  Congratulations Lisa!

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!!!
