Those Teachers Can Dance!

Mrs. Hunt Mrs. Heckadon Mrs. Gayman MacarenaMiss Smith

What a coincidence!  In the contest to determine which teacher got the opportunity to perform the Macarena for the student body……it was a tie!  Elementary students got the chance to see Mrs. Heckadon, Ms. Smith, Mrs. Gayman and Mrs. Hunt dress up as a giant burrito and then perform the Macarena this morning.  What a way to start a Friday.

Students got the chance to vote for the teacher of their choice when they took an “AR” test and received a 100%.  This was part of a promotion for the book fair which will be taking place next week.

Teaming Up for a Cure!!

Angie — one of our school cooks — unfortunately has breast cancer and will be going in to have surgery on March 12th. We will be doing several fundraisers to help her, and her family, pay for expenses.

One of the fundraisers will be ordering t-shirts (see below). The district will be wearing the t-shirts on March 11th to show Angie out support before her surgery.

To place an order for delivery before the 11th, please give your payment and size to Mrs. Breckenridge by Monday, March 3rd. The shirts will be $12 per shirt. She will be placing several orders if you are unable to pay by Monday. Thank you in advance for your support!

Victory in First Round

The Rich Hill Tigers boys team opened the district tournament up against the Adrian Blackhawks last night at Osceola. The tigers came out flat in the first quarter allowing Adrian to take a quick lead. The tigers fought back and were able to take the lead at the end of the first quarter. The second quarter wasn’t much better as the tigers only extended their lead to 8 at the end of the half.
The third quarter however was completely different as the tigers scored 30 points in the third quarter alone. This extended the lead 20. The tigers lengthened that lead by 5 by the end of the game. The final score was 80-55. The Rich Hill Tigers will play the Skyline Tigers in the Semi-Finals of the tournament Thursday at 6:00 P.M
