Tuesday night, the Bond Planning Community will hold a forum to discuss the upcoming bond proposals with our community. This is on December 8th at 6:30 PM in the RHS Black Box Theater.
The RHS ABC Board, members, coaches and parents have been discussing the upcoming bond election regarding our proposed multi-purpose facility. There has been some misunderstanding regarding this building, especially since early on it was referred to as an “indoor practice facility”, which is an extremely limited view of what it could mean to our kids and to all of you.
In case you have not heard all of the features that might be realized in such a facility, here are a few:
80-yard practice field for:
- Athletics (football, baseball, soccer)
- Band (much safer than the parking lot! Especially with students driving through, or trying to march in 100°+ heat)
- Desperados (softer surface & saves small gym floor)
- Weight & fitness room– RHS’s is severely overcrowded
- The old weight room would become a bigger wrestling room and the wrestling room another weight room
- Baseball-softball cages
- Storage for band
- 3-4 track lanes wide enough for hurdles
- Golf hitting and putting areas
- Coaches’/directors’ offices
As you can see, there are numerous possibilities. We are sure all of you remember the severe weather we had last year from cold to torrential rain in the spring. RISD Athletes missed 150 games & practices due to the rain. Many of our competitors have such facilities, and when our kids were going home early due to inclement weather, THEY were practicing or rehearsing. It makes a difference. RISD Athletic Director Bob Dubey has said that the purpose of these proposed multi-use facilities is to impact the largest number of kids and groups as possible.
On December 8, at 6:30 PM in the RHS Black Box Theater, the Bond Planning Community will hold a forum to discuss the upcoming bond proposals with our community. WE NEED A LARGE CONTINGENT OF RHS PARENTS AND STUDENTS to be present at this meeting because the attendance at this meeting will be very instrumental in how the RISD structures the bond.
Information regarding the upcoming Bond planning meetings
RISD is continuing to evaluate potential items to include in the 2016 bond and public input is a critical part of the bond planning process. Public meetings will be held in each of RISD’s four feeder patterns to present information about possible items for inclusion, solicit feedback, hear ideas and answer questions. Parents, residents and employees who are interested in the bond planning process are encouraged to attend.

The Richardson High School tennis team just finished their 2015 fall season where they advanced out of district and went on to compete in the area tournament. A first or second place finish in the area tournament is required to go on to regionals and RHS just barely missed the cut by coming in third.
The Varsity and JV teams have both been working extremely hard since early August so they’re looking forward to taking a little break before preparing for the spring season.
Congratulations to RHS Eagles middle linebacker Cade Corey for winning The Dallas Morning News Defensive Player of the Week.
Corey is a 5’ 9” 180 pound senior middle linebacker who helped secure Richardson High School’s first win of the season with his second recovered turnover of the game. After falling behind 28-12 at the half, Richardson used two 21-point quarters to complete a 54-50 comeback win over Richardson Pearce.
For the game, Corey had 6 tackles, 4 assisted tackles, 1 tackle for loss, 1 sack, 1 QB pressure, 1 forced fumble, 1 fumble recovery and 1 interception.
It was a very emotional win not only for Corey but for the entire team. After the game, Corey said “Oh man, there was so much emotion. I don’t think I’ve seen anybody so happy. Coach Chandler was just jumping up and down. Everybody was giving me hugs, and it was just so emotional for me, because it’s my last year. I helped seal the win. It was an amazing feeling; it was just incredible.”
