Eagle Football Finishes the Season 9-2

The 2018 Football Season came to an end on Saturday as the Eagles fell to Hallettsville Sacred Heart, 39-13 in Columbus. The Eagles finish the season with a 9-2 record, which is the best record in school history. This was also the school's first playoff win in 11-man football.

The Eagles fell behind early when Hallettsville connected on a touchdown pass in the first quarter. Rosehill answered with a 36-yard field goal from sophomore Brady Ward to make the score 7-3. After a Hallettsville 32-yard field goal, the Eagles responded on a 35-yard touchdown pass from Trevor Manning to McCray Kelton. Ward’s kick tied the game at 10.

The Indians scored twice more in the second quarter to take a 24-10 lead into the locker room at the half. The Eagles kicked another 36-yard field goal to make the score 24-13 in the third, but the Indians scored two more touchdowns and added another field goal to make the final score 39-13.

The Eagles had a record-breaking season, posting seven shutouts and recording nine wins-- both school records. Nine Eagles played their last game and will certainly be missed: Eliot Mercado, Hans Barrios, McCray Kelton, Jake Howorth, Cameron Castillo, Nick Brueckner, Braeden Kobza, Seth Mallory, and Will Grudzeicke. This group posted a career record of 25 wins,17 losses, and three playoff appearances. For Fall 2019, the Eagles will return eight  starters on offense and five on defense as well as the kicker and the punter. RCS Football future looks bright as the Junior High team finished 7-1 and won the district title for the second time in three years.

7th Grade at San Felipe de Austin

 

The 7th graders went to the first "Capital of Texas"...that is, the capital of Stephen F. Austin's first colony, San Felipe de Austin.  

They enjoyed a tour of the museum, got to vote on whether Texas should have declared Independence in 1836, and were able to sort artifacts from an archaeology dig. They even reassembled broken pottery like an archaeologist would!

They ended their day with a hike at Stephen F. Austin State Park to see the Brazos River on a cold, but beautiful day!

 

4th grade Field Trip: Washington on the Brazos

Tuesday, November 14th, fourth grade visited Washington on the Brazos. Despite cold temperatures, students visited the farm and the museum. They took away a better understanding of everyday life for early Texas settlers.

Join the Golf Team

Do you have a student who is interested in playing Junior High or High School golf? Contact Pam Clayton.

Who can play: Boys and Girls - 6th-12th grade

Home Course:  Cypress Lakes Golf Course

Coach:  John Krause - PGA instructor at Cypress Lakes Golf Course

Junior High practice will begin Tuesday, January 8th.  Players will practice mornings starting at 7:30 am. Parents will need to bring their golf team member to the golf course for practice and will then need to have them at school by 8:45 am. In the past, parents have arranged carpools to help with the task.

High School team members will leave campus at the 8th-period bell and drive to the golf course.  If a student is a not driving and parents are not able to get them to the course, other arrangements will be made.

Tournaments for JH and HS are all day events and are usually played on Monday or Tuesdays.  Parents are welcome to attend all tournaments, but it is not required. Transportation will be provided to tournaments.

 

PTO Christmas Teacher Appreciation

 

Our Annual PTO Christmas Teacher Appreciation Luncheon is coming up on Friday, December 7th. Our theme is "A Christmas Movie.”  In order to make this event a success, we need YOUR help!  We are currently looking for substitute teachers on the day of the luncheon.

For every teacher to attend, we need a parent or grandparent to be a substitute in each class. We need subs that day from 11am to 1:15pm. If you can volunteer, please contact PTO.  You do not have to sub in your own child's class.  There are always other classes that need help. Remember, you must have a current background check on file and complete a volunteer application and Ministry Safe Training.
