Rose Bud High School hosted a mini Relay-for-Life event April 21, 2015 in the High School Arena. It consisted of booths such as water balloons, face painting, bake sales, Bag-o tournaments, private concerts, ice cream floats, pies in the face, a jail, and many others...all led by our very own students! Tickets were sold to participate in each booth activity and all of the high school was dismissed during 8th and 9th hour to attend. We even had a couple of classes from elementary! The students raised a total of $657 to donate to the American Cancer Society. Sponsors for this event were: Bre'Anna Belt (student sponsor), Jessica Prothro (English teacher), and Alicia Murray (high school librarian.)
"I've never been more proud of our High School Ramblers. They only had a short period of time to get this together, but they proved how tenacious they could be...especially for a cause that means so much to so many." Alicia Murray

Rose Bud School District hosted their first author visit Friday, December 5. The award winning author, Carla Killough McClafferty, is an Arkansas native and has written seven nonfiction books over a variety of topics. Ms. McClafferty met with the high school athletes and, using her latest book Fourth Down and Inches: Concussions and Football's Make-Or-Break Moment, discussed the seriousness of concussions and the long-term effects that can develop. For the third through sixth graders, Ms. McClafferty presented her book The Many Faces of George Washington: Remaking a Presidential Icon where she discussed her research into George Washington's appearance at pivotal moments in his life. After the presentations, Ms. McClafferty answered questions, signed autographs, and took pictures for both the staff and students of Rose Bud.

We are excited to be in our new building addition! It is approximately 5000 sq. ft. and contains two new classrooms and a new high school office complex. It was completed in time for the 2014-2015 school year which began on August 18, 2014. The overall cost of construction was $912,404. The project also included the renovation of the old office space into an additional classroom.
Our high school staff and administration have really enjoyed the new addition.
