Kudos to Briana Flores for organizing all the rotations, and student groups for What Will IB Day! as well as coming into to work to distribute rosters, print out rosters and room numbers for students to figure out where to go.

Wendy Tucker and Jennifer Squires for helping to organize the What Will IB Day Field Trip!

- Allison Lee


Kudos to Wendy Tucker for her organizational skills and willingness to jump in where needed. Wendy served on the planning committee for the Central Texas Teen Comic-Con at RRHS, then graciously took over organizing the IB field trip after inheriting it halfway through the planning phase, both events occurring within three days of each other. Wendy, you're a ROCK STAR.

Kudos to new IB Coordinator Emilee Hinegardner for standing the entire day and organizing field trip permission slips with me on Monday.

- Cherri Urban


Thanks to Wendy Tucker for her organization of the IB Field Trip! Her organization and dedication made for an awesome day!

Karen Stringer is phenomenal and an asset to 7th grade and our ELA department. I appreciate her approach to building relationships with kids and her ability to make learning relevant and engaging for them.

- Danya Gardner


Thank you to all our coaching staff for going above and beyond to make the 7B girls tournament a success this past Saturday. You are appreciated!

- Karen Huffman


Thank you to all the teachers who picked up medications and returned them in a timely manner following the field trip on Tuesday. GREAT JOB! THANKS.

- Nurse David Blackwell


I want to give a shout out and thank you to Jennifer Squires and Wendy Tucker for organizing the IB field trip along with the IB committee members for organizing the schedule for teachers and students who stayed on campus! Blessed to work with you! Thanks for all you do!

- Briana Flores


Cherri Urban--in an effort to boost morale and offer praise for specific staff members who have been instrumental in some way or fashion, she eagerly collects input from all on a weekly basis, while keeping her other obligations in constant motion.
