Look down 1,000 feet into the active Poás Volcano, kayak across the crystalline Lake Arenal and relax in its numerous bubbling hot springs, then strap yourself into a harness for the ultimate rainforest experience as you soar through the canopy on a zip line.

Come to our informational meeting on Monday, December 7, 2015 in room A104 at 6:00 p.m. Find out more about how you can take part in this AMAZING experience (and learn some Spanish, too)! 

RHS READERS Club will meet this Wednesday, Dec. 2nd in the back of the library for our regularly scheduled book club meeting.  We will meet during both lunch periods.  Stop by if you need a pass.

Students, please make sure you have taken the time to read the eligibility rules for approved community service prior to doing the service hours.  We, as a counseling department, want to reiterate that paid hours, lawn care or house work for a neighbor, babysitting for a daycare and service hours supervised by a family member are not eligible hours.  We have a 6 page pre-made list for you to select a non-profit option.  You can access that list on the Ralston webpage or from your counselor.
