Last Friday, RHS held a Bronco Leader recognition ceremony and Halloween Celebration. We celebrated our new Bronco Leaders from the past month, held a costume contest, played a school-wide Blooket game, got loud during our pep rally, and enjoyed some tasty Halloween treats. It was definitely a fun-filled afternoon! Here are a few pictures from the festivities and be on the lookout for a separate post with pictures/details on our Bronco Leaders. Also, a big shoutout goes to Mr. Brown for creating the "medals" for our costume contest winners and to Ms. Kasselman for coordinating the fun Halloween treats.
