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
Camp will be held August 3,4,5.
Registration Deadline: August 1st

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.
I would like to welcome you to the Rose Bud School District. Our district currently has approximately 850 students in kindergarten through grade 12 and we also have an ABC early childhood classroom for three and four year old students.
The district employs 70 certified staff members which helps us keep a very desirable student/teacher ratio. We also employ 18 classified staff members who offer direct assistance to the teaching staff. Our academic program in Rose Bud is very strong. In 2012-2013 our graduating class was offered approximately one million dollars in college scholarships.
We have a wide variety of vocational offerings in Rose Bud as well. Vocational students can choose from at least eleven vocational programs of study. Our district’s ideal size allows us to keep that small town feel, while also allowing us to offer the academic experience and vocational opportunities of much larger districts. Please stop by for a tour of our schools or feel free to call me at 501-556-5815 if I you need any more information regarding our school district.
