    Morning everyone:

    You guys have been great bringing toys in for the Helping Hands toy drive, come by my office to see how this year’s toy  drive is doing.

    We have today, Tuesday and Wednesday morning to collect last minute toys as the crime stoppers board and other students will be loading the toys on a truck and delivering them at the school’s admin building. So, keep the momentum going and keep bring in those new unwrapped toys.

    I can sign volunteer hours forms for those who can help load the toys on the truck Wednesday morning, with the number of toys we’ll have to move, we can use all the help we can get.

    I want to talk about social networking bullying and threats. Now, I don’t want to be gender specific….girls, but the posts going around this school and RHHS is just unnecessary and very childish.

    If you are having an issue with someone else just ignore them, don’t post invitations to a fight or post inappropriate content about a person. This is the age where you are supposed to be displaying maturity and responsibility, not junior high behavior just because it make you feel better.

    Remember, regardless of the app you use has every post sent and received on their server, so just because you delete it does not mean isn’t not available.

    Again, thank you all for the toys, and as always,slowdown in the parking lots, wear your seat belt and a great week.     

    • Thank you- Jostens will be on campus this friday. Seniors – They will be accepting orders for cap and gown, t-shirts and more, make sure you have your order ready along with a $50 down payment.
    • Juniors – They will be delivering class rings, and taking orders as well. If you are ordering your class ring that day, make sure you also have a $50 down payment.
    • Seniors don’t forget  to turn in your class dues totalling $100 by Thursday to either Coach Watkins or Mrs. White. After december 15th, the price will increase to $150 dollars.
    • All Musical related rehearsals will be canceled until further notice.
