The Swimming Competency test will be administered on the following dates:  Thursday, April 28th or Thursday, May 5th both at 6:30 AM.  Students should plan on a minimum of 1 hour for testing.  This is a very comprehensive test and absolutely no instruction will be given prior to or during the test.
Students MUST pre-register for a test session by calling RHS at 402-331-7373, and sessions are limited to the first 12 students to call.  Reminder: passing this test only waives the swimming classification for graduation, it DOES NOT award any credits, the 2.5 credits must be completed in another PE course.  If you have any questions please see Mr. Hartfield.

The “Tabs for Abs” collection cups are now available in homeroom.   “Tabs for Abs” collects aluminum can tabs in memory of Abbey Rotert, who lost her battle to a rare disease two years ago.  The tabs are recycled with the money donated to The Ronald McDonald House in her memory.  The tabs will be collected during Thursday homerooms through May 4th, with weekly totals announced on Friday. Each week the homeroom with the most tabs donated will receive doughnuts.  Donations larger than the collection cups can be dropped off in Room A217.

Our Little Free Library, just outside of Door 31 has been stocked with new books.  Here's how it works:
If you see a book you'd like to read, take it now!
You don't need to leave a book to take one!
When you finish with it you can return it, or pass it on. Or keep it if you love it!
If you have a book or two that you think that others
might enjoy reading, share them by putting them into the Little Free Library.
It is hoped that this Little Free Library will be
a community sharing library... ENJOY!!!
