FREE Breakfast during STAAR Testing Weeks

Round Rock ISD students will receive FREE breakfast on school campus during STAAR Testing week(s), March 30 - April 2 and April 20 - 24.  Research shows eating breakfast is directly related to student test performance.  School breakfast includes a balanced meal of whole grains, lean proteins and fresh fruit. Our schools breakfast service begins at  7:15 am.

We want all our students to be well fed and feeling great every day! Makeup Day Round Rock ISD will be open for a full instructional day for all students and staff on Friday, June 5, 2015, as a result of the school cancellation on Thursday, March 5, 2015. The bad weather makeup day was changed to June 5 during a December Board of Trustees meeting. All graduation ceremonies will continue as planned on June 4 and June 5.

Backpack Project

Our mission the month of March is to provide food for the Backpack Coalition. The  Backpack Coalition is a program that provides food and snacks for children who don’t receive enough food to satisfy their hunger on days that they are not in school.  The Backpack Coalition is in many of the schools in the Round Rock School District. The grade with the most donated items will win a popsicle party at their recess time. These are the items we are requesting - collection will continue until April 2.  

Kinder- Family Sized Cereal Boxes (kid-friendly flavors are preferred)

First Grade- Boxes of healthy snacks: nutrigrain bars, peanut butter crackers, etc.

Second Grade- Peanut Butter and jelly  (no glass containers)

Third Grade- Large Protein Items: Stews, Chili, Canned Chicken & Ham, Vienna Sausage, Etc.

Fourth Grade- Soups- Kid Friendly preferred

Fifth Grade- Saltine Crackers

Thank you,
