First Week of school 2013

Yeah!  The first week of school has come and gone.  On the first day of school, Rummel Creek opened as it has for 51 years to smiling faces of students, teachers, and parents.  There were new faces, there were familiar faces, there were some faces that were excited, and others confused.  The Rummel Creek student population has changed over the pat 24 years.....when I arrived there was only 420 students  - now we have nearly 700. In 1990 several classrooms were only special needs classrooms, now we're nearly all grade levels with only a few special programs on the campus.  What a difference in the community as well...lots of new faces and new families.  Welcome to Rummel Creek!
On the first day of school, the parents and children lined up in front of the school waiting patiently for the doors to open.  The students were excited to see their teachers and their friends.  The first day as well as the rest of the week went rather smooth....except for one little bitty hiccup - air conditioning!  And you know how hot Houston can be in August!  But the students didn't let a little bit of heat keep them from doing their job.  

It's been a great first week of school.  It's also been a sad week...last first day of school in this building.  It's going to be a lot of lasts this year!
