RISD UIL A+ Academic Competition


RISD held its second annual UIL A+ Academic competition in early February at Lake Highlands High School with more than 600 elementary students participating in six events: number sense, storytelling, oral reading, chess puzzle, ready writing, and creative writing.

Students were excited, gracious, accommodating and encouraging. Every child was pulling for their teammates while also cheering on RISD students from other campuses.

Coordinated by Kelly Musgrave, an ESL teacher at White Rock Elementary, this event continues to grow. Superintendent Tabitha Branum said her favorite part was watching the kids play games with each other while waiting for their events to take place. #RISDWeAreOne
