Students, just a reminder to check the due dates on your library books. If you checked it out at the beginning of the year the due date was last week. Stop by the library to return or renew your books. Thank you!
Any DECA member that wants to attend the first leadership conference on Sept. 29, stop in room A120 and pick up a registration packet. They are due next Wednesday. The next DECA meeting is Monday, September 15 at 6:30. Check Google email for upcoming messages.
Do you look forward to curling up by the fire and losing yourself in a great read? Then this club is for you! The RHS Online Book Club will help you rediscover favorite books and uncover hidden gems. The books for discussion are selected by group members, and are primarily (but not exclusively!) fiction. We will all read the same title and discuss the book via Edmodo or another online tool. No meetings necessary; we know you're busy. To join the group and pick up this month's selection, Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell, stop by the library media center.
Students, Jack Martin will be here on Tuesday, October 14th for picture re-takes. They will be here for all 3 lunch shifts.
Community Service Opportunity
Volunteers are needed to help with the local food pantry associated with Messiah Lutheran Church and Harrison Street Baptist Church. The Food Bank for the Heartland delivers 2-3 trucks of food to the parking lot of Harrison Street Baptist Church and volunteers are needed for the following duties: moving food by hand cart from the truck, unloading to the distribution tables, helping clients, carry food to client's car, tearing down boxes, and clean up. This project takes place on the 2nd Saturday of each month.
We Are the Power of ONE
