On January 27, 2012 Rich Hill’s FFA chapter went on a reward ski-trip for selling Pointsettias and Mums. They left Rich Hill at 8:00 pm and skied from 10:30 pm until about 1:00 am at the Snow Creek Ski Resort in Westin, Missouri. The fee was $38.00 per person. Eighteen kids went with 3 chaperones. Bailey King was the only one with any injuries and it was only a few scratches on her face, and she jammed her thumb.
Do you have any words about the ski-Trip on January 27, 2012?
Jacob Thompson – “It was Fun, I like the water” “Snowboarding is harder than skiing”
Riley Cameron – “Sore, and about broke my ankle.
The Distracted Driving Assembly was seventh hour during school last Friday, January 27, 2012. To start off the assembly they showed a slide show that had statistics, facts and awareness about driving. They then had teachers, Mr. Morgan and Mr. Gillis put on “drunk goggles” that make things appear blurry and spinning as if you were drunk. Tyler led them around the gym and had different distractions come out in front of them, like Jackson dressed as a deer, the seventh grade boys, a mob of kindergarteners, and the senior boys. They let different students try different things in them as well. Some basketball players tried to shoot wearing them, and to play. The cheerleaders tried to cheer and do cartwheels. Some students raced and danced. They all found it difficult doing these activities, that they are used to doing, “under the influence”. It was a very educational assembly and the week seemed to be a success. Hopefully all students and teachers are driving a lot more responsibly after being educated on the possibilities of what could happen when driving distracted or without a seatbelt!

Statistics Day! First hour Sam told everyone to look under their seats. If there was a sticky note under your chair you were one out of five that was “hurt in a car accident”. This made it more realistic, looking around your classroom and seeing that one out of every five of your classmates could get hurt in a car accident. At lunch they had you look again and if you were sitting where a sticky note was this time you “died in a car accident”. Hopefully this will open the eyes of all students and prompt them to drive more responsibly and not allow themselves to be distracted. Nobody wants to be that statistic or cause someone else to be. Don’t be distracted while driving! Always pay attention to what your doing and what is going on around you.
The RH Tournament will continue tonight. The 4:30 game will be Hogan Prep girls verses Sheldon girls. 6:00 game will be Sheldon boys and Hogan Prep boys. 7:30 will be RH girls and KC East girls. To end the night at 9:00 will be the RH boys and KC East boys. Come out and watch some great basketball, and support the Tigers!
