Mock Crash, There is No Emergency

Each year thousands of people, including teenagers, are injured and die in distracted driver car crashes.  At RCS we care about our students and their families.  Today we will be conducting an anti-distracted driver campaign to raise awareness of the dangers of distracted driving, and the real-life consequences that can happen.  In the gravel parking lot there will be a mock crash scene featuring RCS student actors, and real emergency personnel demonstrating the steps taken to save lives.  This will also include sirens and a helicopter.  It is important that everyone know THERE IS NO EMERGENCY.  THIS IS A DEMONSTRATION FOR STUDENTS!  We thank you for your cooperation and encourage everyone to talk to his or her student drivers about making good choices.

Commitment to RCS Students and Excellence in Teaching Continues at RCS


Mrs. Shanda Gay (Middle School English Language Arts teacher), Mrs. Kristina Wooldridge (High School English Language Arts teacher), Mrs. Tiffany Turner (5th Grade Teacher), and Mr. Jamey Johnson (RCS Principal) attended the recent two day 2017 Kentucky Continuous Improvement Summit in Lexington, Kentucky. The conference was attended this year by 750 participants of teachers and administrators throughout the state.  The Kentucky Department of Education and AdvancED Kentucky sponsor this annual fall conference.  Participants attend a wide variety of workshops to learn strategies that promote student proficiency, engage all students in their learning, as well as how to better build solid reading/writing foundations for all students (just to name a few workshops).  This year, the keynote speaker for the conference was Mike Rutherford, from the Rutherford Learning Group.  Mr. Rutherford also presented at several of the workshops.  His mission is to enhance the quality of students’ education through the development and support of teachers and administrators.  The Robertson County team walked away with a deeper understanding of what can be done to strengthen instruction for our RCS students, as well as being the conduit to share all the information with all RCS teachers.  RCS continues their tradition of excellence!

Mr. Holbrook Asks for RED OUT at 8th Grade Volleyball Finals

One thing I love about our school district is the family atmosphere.   How we, as a staff, support our students.  I remember how proud I was of our staff, community, and students for having the biggest crowd at All “A” state tournament.   You learn in a little school district that when the opportunity for our students to shine in academics or athletics comes along, we need to get behind them with support and hopefully a celebration.  So I’m encouraging our staff and community to make it over to Augusta School Thursday night (April 26) as our Middle School 8th grade volleyball team plays for the conference championship.  The Lady Devils will play the Lady Saints of St. Pat in the championship game.   So join us in RED OUT at Augusta Ind. School to cheer our Lady Devils on to a conference championship.  Game starts at 7:00 P.M.

Freshmen English Class Receives Surprise Letter From Gary Soto

Freshmen in Mrs. Wooldridge’s class were introduced to the works of Gary Soto.  While analyzing Soto’s works, Wooldridge’s freshmen became enthralled to the point of wanting to contact Mr. Soto.  Well, they did and much to their surprise, Mr. Soto returned their call and requested letters from them.  Students collaborated in writing one class letter to the author and within weeks, Soto replied. In his letter, he answered questions and commented on some of the pieces they had already analyzed.  Additionally, he recommended one of his novels, Accidental Love.  Now that a class set has been ordered and delivered, Wooldridge’s students are eager to begin yet another engaging work by their favorite author, Gary Soto.

Maggie Flack and Korbyn LaMonda

Kindergarten started a sight word list program in January.  This program consists of 22 lists of sight words and 132 sentences. Each list had 10 words and 6 sentences. The children took their first list home and when they could read the words and sentences fluently then they could bring it back, read it to Mrs. Rhonda, and then get another list.  Korbyn LaMonda and Maggie Flack completed this program in 22 days.  They read a list every day, did not miss a word, and read with fluency.  They did an excellent job and couldn’t wait to get the next list.  They are now reading leveled books with a worksheet.  Kindergarten is very proud of their accomplishment.  We would also like to thank their parents for working with them and encouraging them to succeed.  RCS Proud!

Great Things Continue to Happen at RCS

Shanda Gay

RCS Middle School teacher, Shanda Gay, has been selected to serve on the state of Kentucky Middle School (6-8) English Language Arts Standards Advisory Panel.  State Senate Bill I calls for the review and revision of Kentucky’s Academic Standards every six years.  This year, standards for Reading/Writing and Math will be reviewed and revised.  Mrs. Gay, along with other highly skilled educators selected from the state, will meet in Frankfort for 3-5 days during this school year.  Additionally, Mrs. Gay was selected to serve on the prestigious ECET2KY (Elevating and Celebrating Effective Teaching and Teachers) regional planning team at the end of September.  The ECET2 is a national initiative by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation that focuses on collaboration between highly effective teachers and professionalizing teaching.  Over the past four years, close to 3,000 Kentucky teachers have attended ECET2 planning meetings in Kentucky.  Mr. Aaron Massey, RCS Middle School Social Studies teacher was also selected to attend this years’ ECET2, but was unable to attend.  Being selected and serving on these teams, is quite an honor for these teachers and for Robertson County Middle School.  Success continues at RCS!
