2016 Jan 13: Rockdale ISD iTigers Update Spring 2016

The Rockdale ISD iTigers ACE After School Programs are back in business at each of our campuses, and this week Leesa Perez, Rockdale Junior High School iTigers Campus Coordinator, has information regarding offerings for the 2016 Spring Semester.

            RJH iTigers is in full swing for the spring semester! We have lots of activities going on after school. In preparation for the upcoming STAAR tests, we will be offering many tutorial sessions throughout the week. Please ask your student if they have received an invitation to attend those tutorials. In addition, we will still offer homework help and we have added a “reading room” on Mondays and Tuesdays, as well as a session for students to work on their learning.com assignments on Thursdays.  

            We also have enrichment classes that include: theater, cooking, sewing, crafts, soccer, tennis, wii, college and career readiness, softball and karate. There are several activities each day for students to choose from and they are free for your student! In order for your student to attend iTigers at the Junior High, they must have a completed iTiger form on file. If your student does not have a form on file, he/she may pick one up at the office or from Mrs. Perez. We encourage all students to take advantage of the opportunities presented through RJH iTigers.

***A SPECIAL THANK YOU for your kindness and generosity with the iTiger theater program***

  • Antique Queens and Jewels for loaning us tables, chairs, prom dresses, etc.

Furthermore, as a district wide program, ACE (iTigers) offers opportunities for parents and the community, too!

  • The first Monday of each month, iTigers hosts a Mental Health Awareness presentation. We have had guest speakers Courtney Paulsen and Lynette Guerra talk about sensitive (but important) topics such as: Self Esteem, Bullying, Depression, Anxiety, etc. Although these may not affect you, you likely know someone who deals with one or more of these illnesses/issues. Learn about the signs and symptoms and what to do for someone struggling by joining us each month. Dinner will be provided.

 

  • iFit is back! Rockdale iTigers offers iFit twice a week: Mondays - 6:30 pm and Wednesdays - 7:00 pm at the RHS weight room. This is also open to the public and it is free! We hope you will seize the opportunity to work with others toward the goal of a “healthier you.”

 

Thank you for the opportunity to work with your student! If you ever have any questions, please feel free to contact the site coordinator for your child’s campus.
