Canned Food Drive Even More of a Success
This year's canned food drive brought in 3,720 cans and $2,200 in cash for the Fisher County Food Bank. We beat our overall total for last year which is always the goal. Now for the big news, the classes which have won themselves a pizza party for the most cans are:
- Kindergarten with 136 cans,
- 5th Grade with 116 cans and $20 in cash totaling 136 cans,
- 8th Grade with 234 cans and $154 in cash totaling 388 cans, and
- the senior class with 1067 cans and $1884 in cash totaling 2,951.
The pizza party date has not been set as of now. Once the date is set we will need the class orders for pizza. Great job Roby Lions and Lady Lions on an amazing job for this most worthy of causes. There should be no reason for anyone to go hungry and you all just assured that the citizens of Fisher county will now have food during their times of need. Thank you to all those who donated cans and money. This is just proof of the amazing people we have!!

Roby High School Receives Top Honor
The Texas Education Agency has released the 2015 state accountability ratings for more than 8,600 campuses. 4,388 campuses achieved the Met Standard rating and earned some type of distinction designation. However, only 153 high schools, middle schools and junior high schools earned all seven distinction designations. Roby High School was among the 153 campuses receiving this amazing recognition. Roby High School is among only three in Region 14 including Eula and Cisco High Schools.
"Earning any type of distinction under the state accountability system is commendable and should be a source of pride in a community," said Commissioner of Education Michael Williams. "Achieving all seven distinctions reflects extraordinary work taking place on a campus while affirming a strong commitment to students."
