Sophomore Audits will begin next week.  Please check the window in the Counseling Office to find your day and time.  A great opportunity to meet with your counselor and get the  'jump start' you need for your junior year.
If you signed up to volunteer for the debate tournament on February 6th, there will be a meeting on February 3rd immediately after school from 3:15-3:45 to discuss jobs and what time to show up. If you're still interested in getting community service hours, contact Mr. Garst and he will put you on a wait list. 

It's February and you know what that means:  It's time for Blind Date with a Book! 💘 Stop by the RHS Library anytime through February 11th to participate.  Blind Date with a Book 💘 matches you with an unknown gift-wrapped book which you choose to check out of the library, not knowing the title, author, or other details. You then take your book on a blind date, giving it a chance to make an impression. Do you have a love connection? 💖 Or is your date is a dud? 💔 Plus, you get your name in a drawing to win a Valentine's heart-shaped box of chocolates, just for giving it a try.  Stop by and check out your blind date! 💞

Attention Fashion Club:  We will meet on Friday February 5th after school until 5pm in A107.  We will be learning how to make crazy quilts. Anyone is welcome! If you have any questions, contact Mrs. Krist.  
SPANISH CLUB will be meeting this Wednesday, Feb. 3 at 3:20 in Sra. Plugge's room (A104)!  We will be looking ahead to attending the NE World Language Conference in April, planning movie nights AND making Valentines (in Spanish, of course) as part of a community service project!

Sign up to go to Costa Rica by March 1 and save $100!  We have a group signed up already and there is still room for you!  Grab the info outside of Sra. Plugge and Honke's rooms and talk to us for more information!
