Picture here is former RBHS Baseball Coach Bill Zeman at the Chicago Cubs Fantasy Camp. The trip to the camp was a retirement gift given to him by former players and members of the community.

Coach Zeman, You look great!


Happy Homecoming Week

Happy Homecoming Week!

Remember to dress up each day!

You will need to dress up with at least three items to be counted for class points. We will count points during lunch!

We will also play class games throughout the week so find Sadie Schneider and Mr. Barth to sign up!

Tuesday: Balloon Races
Wednesday: Blurry Baskets
Thursday: Baby Bottle Challenge

R-BHS Student Council is bringing back a tradition of the “Great Medallion Hunt.” Check your email daily for the clues and if someone from your class finds the medallion, bring it to Mr. Barth for extra class points. No one, including Student Council members, know the clues or locations in advance.

The medallions will be found in common areas accessible to all students. No medallions will be hidden in classrooms or the library. If the medallion is not claimed by 3:00 pm, the medallion is void.

The clue for today is:

“You travel here when you are in need of a break. Look closely and the medallion you will take.”

Friday afternoon will be our homecoming pep rally! Come prepared!”
