Spirit Week Day One : Mad Hatter Monday

September 24, 2018

Today RHS kicked off spirit week with Mad Hatter Monday, which, despite the name, is actually a day for students to go crazy with their hair.

Roqaiah Odeh Last night, RHS hosted an event to welcome incoming freshmen to the high school. They will be coming here in the fall and it is going to be a huge transition from middle school. To make the change a little bit easier, eighth graders were able to come here and see what the school offers and all the different classes and teachers the high school has. It helped the students become more familiar with the building and, in the fall, hopefully give them a good idea of what to expect. The link crew members were preparing for this day a few weeks before and met up to practice on how to introduce the students. They went over where to take the students and what to speak about. Link crew sponsors, Michael Zimmer and Bethany Allen, made sure to cover every opportunity provided at our school. For example,...
