2017 Oct 4: RISD iTiges Program

The Rockdale ISD iTigers ACE Program has provided many opportunities for our students to experience success and enrichment. These opportunities were not available prior to this highly successful program. This week our Rockdale Elementary iTigers Coordinator Mrs. Valarie Willingham has regarding the RISD iTigers Program and her program on the RES campus.

Many of you know about iTigers at Rockdale ISD.  You probably have a student who attends our tutorials/homework help, after school activities, or before school tutorials.   Maybe you yourself have attended some iTigers parent activities like our ELL parent classes or you’ve taken advantage of our excellent Ed2Go continuing education opportunities.  No? Well surely you have seen iTigers offering children’s activities at community events?  The iTigers program touches so many not only in our schools, but in our community as well.  We are excited to share a few upcoming dates for students, the community, and parents!

Rockdale Elementary iTiger students will be bringing home parent interest surveys this week.  It is important that you fill them out and send them back in before Monday, 10/9.  It is required for us to have these surveys returned.

RISD iTigers will be hosting our annual Lights on After School event to celebrate after school programs.  This year some of our students will be participating in the fair parade and iTigers will have tables set up outside of City Hall with snacks and information about what is going on after school.  Be sure to come by and see us Saturday, 10/21, at 10:00 am.

Rockdale Elementary School iTigers are partnering with Region 13, bilingual/ESL department to host a series of parent-education literacy trainings this fall.  These trainings are geared specifically toward parents of English language learners in grades Kinder, First and Second Grades.  We will be meeting at the Elementary Library from 6:00-7:00 p.m. The trainings will focus on these topics:  Finding the Right Book - October 19 and Vocabulary Development - November 16

Regular Fall RISD iTigers after school classes will end Thursday, 12/7, and morning classes will end Friday, 12/8.  If there is an early release, we will not have iTigers that day.
