Campus Spotlight: Apollo Junior High

teachers with big check

The Richardson ISD Foundation and The RISD Council of PTAs teamed up for a surprise announcement at Apollo Junior High to close out NTX Giving Day 2023.

For the second consecutive year, Apollo had the most unique donors support the Foundation’s and the Council’s NTX Giving Day campaign. The junior high campus received a $2,500 grant to help purchase a new marquee that will help the school stay connected with the community.

Apollo will also receive a Frios Popsicle Party for every student and every teacher in the school. Congratulations to Principal Gaither and everyone at Apollo Junior High! #RISDWeAreOne

In addition, trustees were sworn in and reorganized for 2024-25.
