Attention Spanish Bilingual Students:  RHS is partnering with UNO and the Juan Diego Center for a quick Service Learning Project.  This will be a unique opportunity to service our Latino senior citizens in our community and for you to earn community service hours.  Along with UNO students, RHS students will be sharing stories while connecting with Latino senior citizens over favorite recipes, culture, and lunch.  Also, RHS Spanish bilingual students will serve as interpreters for the UNO students.  We are seeking 10 to 12 Spanish bilingual students who can commit to a few hours on two Saturdays:  March 26th & April 16th.  Transportation from and to RHS will be provided.  The sign-up deadline is Wednesday, March 23rd (first-come, first-serve).  Please see Mrs. Weaver or Mrs. Honke if you are interested.
