Fire Safety Week is here! Rivercrest Elementary will be learning about Fire Safety today as we host our wonderful Volunteer Firefighters from Bogata & Talco. The firetrucks will be here this afternoon and our students will participate in several fire safety activities.
Parents who are picking students up before the pep rally can start arriving and signing them out from 2:05 - 2:25. Please do not pick your child up *at* the pep rally as this will add to the chaos. We want everyone to have a great experience at the Homecoming Pep Rally and get all our students home safely and in an orderly manner. Students will walk over at 2:30 to the high school with staff and will load onto their buses after the pep rally at the high school. There is NO 3:15 parent pick-up today. Parent pick-up students who are not picked up before the pep rally, will walk back to the elementary with staff and be picked up on the south end (Talco side) of the elementary building at 3:30.
Important Pep Rally Information: Today, your child will bring home a note about the Homecoming Pep Rally THIS Friday. It is important that you fill out the information and send it back to school tomorrow. Safety is our TOP priority and since we will be doing something "new", we need your cooperation and help.

Rivercrest ISD Parents and Guardians, Today, our Mighty Rivercrest Rebel Regiment Marching Band placed in the top three at the Area marching contest in Lindale, Texas. This great accomplishment for our band has earned them the opportunity to compete in the State UIL Marching Band Contest in the Alamodome in San Antonio on Tuesday, November 9, 2021. Although it is quite a distance from Johntown, Texas, we want to give everyone an opportunity to travel to San Antonio to support and cheer for our Band in the State competition. Therefore, Rivercrest ISD will be closed all day for students and staff on Tuesday, November 9, 2021. We are very proud of the accomplishments of our band program, and we are especially proud of our band students for representing Rivercrest ISD in such a great way. Best of luck to our Rivercrest Rebel Regiment Marching Band in the State UIL Marching Band Competition!! Sincerely, Stanley Jessee Superintendent, Rivercrest ISD
