‘i Can’ with iTigers this summer
Just because classes are out for summer break doesn’t mean there’s not much going on at Rockdale ISD. With grant money from the Afterschool Centers on Education program, the district’s iTigers program is offering a variety of activities to students from elementary to high school, as well as their parents.
Intermediate aged students are meeting at Rockdale Elementar y School dur ing the week, Monday through Thursday, for the month of June.
Junior high and high school kids are at RHS for programs. Also this year, the annual RISD sports camps are being held in conjunction w ith the iTiger camps, and that all seems to be working well.
Intermediate aged students have over 100 participants in the summer program through either regular camp, sports camp or both, RIS iTigers coordinator Susan Boyd said.
At the high school, classes and activities include self defense, swimming at the City Pool, sew ing, arts & crafts, dr ivers’ education, Science Club and many others.
“Being able to provide this for our students is such a blessing for all and it is all due to the grant received through the program,” RHS iTigers coordinator Denice Doss. Afterschool Centers on Education, called iTigers in Rockdale.”
English classes for Spanish speaking parents were offered each Monday at RHS during the month of June.
A walking club will begin Tuesdays and Thursdays in June and July from 7-8 p.m. at the high school track for all parents. This is free to the public. For the walking club contact Jennifer Hicks at 254- 231-7304.
