RHS welcomes the next generation

On Wednesday, March 18, RHS had yet another successful Welcome Night. Kids all the way down to sixth grade from all over the county came in, as RHS opened their doors for them and their families. Students and teachers from the school’s many classes, clubs, and sports, stepped up hoping to spark the new students’ excitement about their upcoming years of high school.  Each class or club had its own stand, with poster boards and representatives ready to tell the new students all the reasons why they should join that particular club or class.  In addition to that, some stands passed out snacks and souvenirs to people, hoping to make a memorable impression. For example, The Panther Den made a good profit in RHS-apparel, people got well fed in Hospitality Management’s delicious food and many could walk home wearing a brand new pair of sunglasses from Roseville Coalitions, a club that raises awareness about underage drinking and drug abuse using the catch phrase “Most teens don’t.”

“Welcome night was very successful. Students and parents were highly impressed with the school’s cleanliness and various activities,” assistant principal Gary Scheff said.

The ending goal of Welcome Night is to encourage the new students to be excited about their upcoming high school career and to help them realize that RHS is the place to be.
