2019 Jan 16: Rockdale ISD's ACE (iTigers)

The Rockdale Junior High’s ACE (iTigers) Program’s coordinator Leesa Perez has the spotlight this week, and she would like to provide us with important information regarding the iTigers Program at Rockdale ISD. iTigers provides additional instruction and enrichment for our students who may need extra help and support.

Happy New Year from the RISD ACE (iTigers) programs! A new semester is upon us, and the ACE (iTigers) programs on each campus are preparing for after school activities to begin on January 14, 2019. Students and teachers have worked diligently across campuses to make the first part of the year a memorable learning experience.

iTigers would like to remind students and parents that this upcoming semester is critical. The STAAR test is upon us, and teachers will be working in overtime to make sure that students are prepared. Students must be sure to take advantage of tutorials and homework help that are immediately available to them during iTigers hours before and after school.

Once the academic session is over, students may stay for the enrichment activities. Please note that each campus offers different activities, which are designed to meet the needs of that campus’ specific age group. For example, Rockdale High School  ACE (iTigers) is offering Drivers Education Classes, beginning February 4, 2019. Please contact the high school coordinator, Martha Gonzales, for more information. Your child’s campus iTigers coordinator is happy to answer any questions or provide a more detailed list of classes offered on their campus. Coordinators may be reached at the following numbers:

Twelve parents attended with their students, and left with their own piece of beautiful artwork. RJH will host another parent/student painting event this semester. Also, stay tuned for other exciting parent/students events for iTigers families at RJH!
