Another week in the books and we are ramping up for homecoming week! Our kiddos have been doing great things in the classroom, on the football field, on the volleyball court, and the trap team is doing great sitting in third place in our area. It is great to see how involved our student body is. A huge shout out goes to the football boys who stay after the volleyball games to help us administrators out with sprucing up the dome. It is evident the pride they have in our building and speaks volumes to their character.
Please welcome Mrs. Kailey Jungmann to our staff. Kailey brings her talents and experiences to Rich Hill in the counseling department. She is very excited to be here at Rich Hill to serve our kiddos. We are excited to now have a counselor in the building daily to serve our kids.
Band is selling Texas Roadhouse rolls so be sure to contact a band member!
