The UIL competition for Spelling and Ready Writing will be on Friday, January 19, during normal school hours school.

All other UIL participants will compete on Saturday, January 20, in Brownsboro. Students must arrive at school at 6:45 A.M. The bus will be leaving at 7:00 A.M. sharp. All contests in Brownsboro start between 9:00 and 9:15 and will likely be completed by 12:30 or 1:00, and that is when the bus will leave Brownsboro to return home.

We should be returning by 2:00 or 2:30. Please leave a couple of contact numbers so we can contact you in case we arrive earlier. Parents are welcome to attend, and they can follow the bus. Parents will be allowed in the holding area only. Students will be allowed to leave with an authorized adult when their contests are complete. You will need to sign your child out with Ms. Traylor before leaving.

We are excited about this competition and the hard work your child has put in to be a part of it. Thank you for all your support. If you have any questions, please contact Carla Weddle 903-473-2222 ext. 8118.



All Rains Intermediate students have the opportunity to try out for UIL academic teams in the fall. Students sign up, then try out for teams. Up to 4 students can be selected for each team. Students can only participate on one team, however, due to events competing at the same time during the UIL meet.

Coaches will contact students and parents about practice times and try-outs. Practices are tyically scheduled before or after school.

Rains Intermediate joins other schools in January for a UIL competition. Students compete for top honors and are awarded ribbons and medals at a cermony in February.
