Rice University and Spring ISD Team Up to Promote Daily Learning

HOUSTON - Sept. 1, 2020 - Spring ISD is partnering with Rice University Department of Athletics this fall to encourage daily student learning, whether in-person or virtual.

Students in K-12 will have an opportunity to win a ticket to a Rice Owls’ baseball game and a campus tour that will take place in spring of 2021. In order to qualify, students only need to attend class with a teacher, show daily progress in Schoology and/or submit an assignment. All of these efforts qualify to show daily student learning.

Teachers will be monitoring students' progress throughout the fall semester starting Tuesday, Sept. 8. In addition to the baseball game and campus tour, up to 100 K-8 students will be given a chance to be recognized on the field and enjoy a pregame “Field Day” inside Tudor Fieldhouse or the Waltrip Indoor Training Center.

“We’re excited to be partnering with Rice to encourage our students to actively engage in learning every day,” said Executive Chief of District Operations Mark Miranda. “Whether online or in-person when available, we want all of our students to show up every day.”

Students who want to participate don’t need to do anything but show engagement in all of their classes. Winners will be notified in January.
