There is also a friendly competition between first hours to see who can bring the most food sources to school. The students can bring in a...

    Dennis Borse, athletic director for the past two years,  is now an assistant principal. He chose to switch to become more involved with the high school, and to be in the building all day.  Last year, Borse had to split his time between RHS and a role as assistant principal at Eastland Middle School.  He says he enjoys his new position even though it is an adjustment, and he sometimes misses working with sports.  Borse found out over the summer about the opportunity when Dan Crow, the former assistant principal, retired. “ I miss athletics and being a  part of that, but I like learning about the new job,” Borse said. Taking over for Borse, Chris Lafeve was a special ed teacher for four years and is now the athletic director. In addition to being in the school, he also spe...
