Success for our students in the classroom, in college, and in life. Success for our families who roll up their sleeves and care for a school system second to none.

ROCKET CITY GAMES 2015
September 3, 2015

 

Big plans are in place for the launch of another great year of learning. 

 

The Adventure Run kicks off all events the evening of September 2.  The Adventure Run is an obstacle course fun run/walk event.  It's for participants of all ages at any fitness level.  The course is approximately 5K (3.1 miles) and full of surprises.  The National Guard will be there, iMove, the Army and Endurance Adventure.  Hot dog/hamburg cookout immediately following.  Everyone is invited to cheer on runners and stay for the cookout. 

 

On September 3, the Rocket Science and Creative Studies Center will host various booths from around Rocket City.  Kids will dirty their hands and light their minds as they work with R-P high school students on the cyclotron particle accelerator from MSU, learn about chemistry, nutrition for the athlete and composting in the garden. 

 

Athletic events will take place all day.  Volleyball, boys tennis, cross country and football.  Be sure to stay for the fireworks immediately following the football game.
