For the past two years, the students at RHS have not been able to enjoy the annual traditions of the school to their fullest. However this year, they were able to enjoy them once again. On Friday, Oct. 7, the final spirit day was class colors. Freshmen wore white, sophomores wore black, juniors wore red, and seniors wore all three. Later that evening, the parade kicked off. Many students participated by walking in the parade, whether with a club or with their class floats, and some threw candy to children watching. “The parade was very well organized and fun for all ages,” sophomore Summer Hull said. At the Homecoming football game, the newly renewed student section, ‘The Black Hole’, made the game’s theme ‘neon’ to show support for their team. Some parents participated as well, wearing bright colored t-shirts and even construction vests. The varsity football team had a very satisfying win against L’Anse Creuse, final score being 47-12. “It was a lot of fun and got to see people dressed up in neon and see the bright colors,” senior Grace Hullin said. At halftime, this year’s Homecoming queen and king were both announced. Congratulations to this year’s Homecoming queen, Aaniya Jordan, and our Homecoming king, Leonard Curry! 

Oct. 8 was the Homecoming dance, which ended the Homecoming season. There were a lot of students who showed up, as over 700 tickets were sold. The decorations were all themed after the theme, which was after the movie Wizard of Oz. Senior Austin Barnett used elements of the senior’s float for the parade, such as the spinning tornado and the lollipops made out of pool noodles around the aux gym. There were several backdrops for photos that Student Assembly made by hand, but this year, there was a photo booth. “It was incredibly fun. Everyone looked amazing, and I loved that they did a photo booth this year,” senior Nate Donaldson said. Overall, most students who attended had nothing but good things to say, and enjoyed their night!
