2018 Oct 3: RISD's iTigers ACE Program
Rockdale ISD's iTigers ACE program is excited with what the program is doing and how our students are being impacted. Having the afterschool program on all four campuses gives a safe and secure place for many of our students, which they would not have otherwise. The tutorials and enrichment programs are well attended and enjoyed. Rockdale ISD’s forward thinking and concern with our student achievement are why this program is made available each school year. Valarie Willingham, Rockdale Elementary iTigers Coordinator, has more information regarding this important after school program.
Many of you know about iTigers at Rockdale ISD. You probably have a student who attends our tutorials after school, fun enrichment activities after school, or before school homework help. Maybe you yourself have attended some iTigers parent activities like our Camp Gladiator Boot Camp or you’ve taken advantage of our excellent Ed2Go continuing education opportunities. 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!
RISD iTigers will be participating in the annual Lights on After School event to celebrate after school programs. This year are excited to be a part of the Rockdale Fall Music Festival! We will have tables set up with free children’s activities as well as information celebrating what is going on after school. Be sure to come by and see us Saturday, 10/06/18, at 10:00 am.
The iTigers program is currently holding weekly English Language Learner parent classes Tuesdays at Rockdale Elementary School from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm. Classes for this session are full, but if you would like more information on upcoming sessions please contact the site coordinator at your student’s campus.
RISD iTigers after school fall classes will end Thursday, 12/06/18, and morning classes will end Friday, 12/07/18. iTigers will resume for spring classes Monday, 01/14/2019. If there is an early release from school, we will not have afternoon iTigers on that day.
