Dear 8th grade parents, Each year our 8th grade students have the opportunity to work in the concession stand at JH volleyball and basketball games. This earns money for our end-of-school activities. What we don't use will go forward with them to aid their Project Graduation account in high school. Lois Hall has graciously agreed to help with organizing workers this year. If you are interested in helping, please reach out to her via email (Loishall@calvarytalco.com), or text (903-285-8205). Thanks in advance!
Dear parents: Today, at Rivercrest Junior High School, your child participated in a fire drill. It is important for students to be prepared and not scared should a situation ever occur. Please talk to your child about the drill, and reinforce the importance of practicing. If this had been a real fire, you would have received instructions on what needed to be done in order for all students to remain safe and secure. If you have any questions or concerns, please call the office. Thank you for continuing to trust Rivercrest with your students' safety and education.
Here are the 20232-23 Bus Routes and Drivers -- please use your address to determine which route your child will be on this year.
