Good afternoon and happy Friday. We have made it to November and things are going well in the building. Monday and Tuesday of this week was our first experience with full virtual learning and we learned a lot through the experience. All of the precautions and sanitization that we administer in the building helps avoid the possibility of having to go virtual long term and I want to thank our staff for making that happen. Although the staff and students were able to continue learning through distance learning on those two days, it was great to see the kids back in the building and in-person instruction recommence. I want to thank everyone for being understanding of the two virtual days and encouraging your kiddos to complete their work at home. I want to wish the best for our football boys tonight as they travel to Archie to play in the second round of districts. Here are a few updates for the week.
Second mid-quarter is November 13th. Mid-quarter grade cards will be sent to parents of students who had at least one D or lower. I encourage all parents to check Canvas with your kiddos to check in on their grades. Thanks!
Veterans Day Assembly will be November 11th in the Auditorium and unfortunately this year will not be open to the public due to COVID concerns. It will look a little different this year with veterans being socially distanced and groups of performers coming into the space one at a time. The assembly will be followed by a boxed meal. The high school band, choir, and elementary choir will be performing.
Volleyball won the district title and fought a hard battle at sectionals. Please congratulate our girls and coaches on a great season.
Rich Hill R-IV Jr./Sr. High School proudly presents An Enchanted Bookshop Christmas (a play by Todd Wallinger produced in cooperation with Pioneer Drama.)

FFA has been busy with many great updates. Noelle was 18th in the nation in her Agriscience Research Project. Final Trap results have the chapter finishing 2nd in the area. Clifton was 1st and Daniel finished 9th out of out 90 shooters. Noelle and Katie places 2nd in their area place topics and will be competing in Districts. FFA received a $300 Food Insecurity Grant from Missouri FFA. Money will be matched and food items will be purchased to place in the blessing box. FFA filled out a Living to Serve Grant this month to hopefully use for Christmas Collation. This provides the food items families need for a Christmas meal. Typically, the Grant helps 20 local families.
The high school band will perform at the El Dorado Springs Christmas parade on November 21st at 3:00.
Thanks for reading and it is always a great day to be a Tiger!!!
