As part of the fundraising activities going on for #JessicasJourney this week elementary students had opportunities to put their names in a drawing to give Mrs. Amanda Breckenridge a trim! When the drawing took place this morning, Paityn Derry-Jones was the lucky winner. Jessica’s sister Katie Green assisted Paityn with Mrs. Breckenridge’s new style.
School has been in session for a few weeks and Spanish students are picking up a few new skills. The students had a little fun with the green screen this week. The assignment was to greet the viewing public, introduce themselves, give their age, talk about something they like and something they liked to do, and something they do not like and then sign off with an appropriate expression. ¡Bien Hecho!
Seventh and eighth grade football players entered the school with their heads high this morning after their come from behind win against Drexel at home last night. The final score was Rich Hill Tigers 28 / Drexel Bobcats 18.
Here are a few photos from the game.
Next week the RHHS Student Council will be hosting Spirit Week for leukemia. Both the elementary and the high school will be participating.
Mrs. Wheatley’s 8th and 9th grade history classes began the school year with a unit on Paleo-Indians and had the opportunity to take a brief field trip this afternoon. Nolan Preston and Nathan Kassner met the students at a creek east of Rich Hill. Nolan gave the students a short presentation and showed off his collection of Missouri arrowheads and then the group set out down the creek. Garren Steuck found a piece of flint that would of been used to make an arrowhead but there were no other finds today unless you count the mud the group brought back with them!
Thank you to Nolan and Nathan (Mrs. Wheatley’s sons-in-law) for preparing a path and leading the group.
Some familiar faces in the community took time out of their schedules to prepare breakfast for all the Rich Hill students participating in fall sports. From the smiles on the faces it looks like it was much appreciated.
The varsity football team will take on Jasper at home tonight. An extra treat will be the “Little Cheerleaders” adding their voices to the crowd. “Go Tigers!”
