Rockets share "Their Life, Their Legacy"

Last Friday, our Richland Rockets once again showed their great talents and skills during the Oratorical contest. This was a very beautiful event full of powerful and emotional messages. Our primary students did a fantastic job memorizing poems and our upper grade students left us mesmerized with their creativity and originality.

Special thanks to our Master of Ceremony, Ms. Kim Caston, Director of the Board of Trustees and our other fabulous judges who came to support our students.

Kudos to the entire Oratorical team of teachers who worked so hard with our students to get them ready for this great event. To our parents also who came and supported the new generation of talented boys and girls and who also memorized their children's speeches and poems.

To all of you, A BIG THANK YOU!!! Let the legacy of our Rockets be a great one!!!
