Community Support for the School District

We are indeed grateful for the generous support of our community. It is through their partnership with the school district that our students are able to receive a quality 21st century education.

Ropes Ag Boosters
The Ag Boosters for the 2002-2003 school year raised $15,000 to support our students involved in 4-H, Junior FFA, and High School FFA.

Ropes Lions Club
The Lions created and published a Friday night football program, volunteered their time to work the gate, and donated money to the technology program.

Many thanks to those who contributed to the DAT scholarship fund. Parents donated $715.00 to the fund. Five students and one staff member received six $350.00 scholarships.

Ropes Eagles added an event.

Red Ribbon Week serves as a commitment to raise awareness of the importance of being drug free. Its purpose is to educate youth and encourage participation in drug prevention activities. During the week of October 23-27th, we encourage students to dress up to show their pride and support of being DRUG FREE!

Monday - Red Ribbon Day (wear red)
Tuesday - Think twice about doing drugs (twin day)
Wednesday - Be a hero and just say NO (dress like a super hero)
Thursday - Stick it to drugs (duct tape day - make a costume or accessory out of duct tape)
Friday - Black out drugs (wear black - this is our black-out pep rally day)


POSTER CONTEST
In conjunction with Red Ribbon Week we are also offering a poster contest.

Here is how it works:

1. Poster contest is open to students in grades PK-12th
2. Posters must address this year’s theme:
"My Future Is Bright; No Drugs in Sight.”
3. Poster must be 12” x 18” in size (this is smaller than poster board size)
4. Student’s name and grade must be included on the back of the poster
5. Students must produce artwork on their own.
6. Posters will be judged on the quality of artwork, how well the artwork fits the theme, originality, neatness and use of space.
7. Posters will be judged by the Ropes Secondary Art Club.
8. A winner will be chosen from PK & K, 1st & 2nd, 3rd - 5th, Junior High, and High School.
9. Winners will be announced in the Black-out pep rally on October 27th.
10. Posters are due to the front office on or before 8:00 am October 23rd

Spur Football Game
The Spur stadium is unique. Please be aware that you may need to bring your own seating as their stadium is multi-levels of concrete. Also we sit on the same side as Spur, usually on the left side of the stadium as you are facing the field. Just some information that you might find useful for tonight. Go Eagles, Beat Spur!!!
