Thank You!

A heart felt thank you to our awesome PTA and parent volunteers for providing the staff with a delicious luncheon for teacher appreciation week. Thank you to all our wonderful parents for the treats and cards. It truly brought a smile to our teachers faces.

Our RF Jedi's will Shine on the STAAR

Our RF Jedi's will be taking the STAAR test this week. Our students and teachers have worked really hard throughout the year to prepare for this assessment. However, I pride myself in saying that RF focuses on much more than just test scores. We have really seen our Trailblazer's blossom into great leaders. They have truly embraced and displayed exemplary leadership. We are confident our Trailblazers will be successful.

Second-fifth grade teachers, along with the administrative team hosted a "STAAR Wars" assembly for our leaders. The sighs and excitement heard throughout the cafeteria were priceless.

A huge thanks to our talented volunteers for decorating our scenario. It was amazing.

Cultural Synergy Celebration

Sonido Percussion Group Make Their First Debut!

Mr. Trevino, music teacher, brings a new experience to our Trailblazers. Sonido is the new percussion group at Roan Forest. This was it's inaugural season. Sonidos group highlights included: playing skills on percussion instruments, being a part of a team (ensemble), creating movement, having fun striving for musical excellence, and of course having a performance opportunity. They had a fantastic first season.
