Last week, RHS recognized our first group of Bronco Leaders. This is a new program started for the 2022-2023 school year to recognize acts of kindness and positive leadership at RHS. A big thanks also goes out to our local Pizza Hut and Sonic for helping us honor and reward our Bronco Leaders! Please check out the pictures to see what each student was recognized for and tune in next month to see more of our Bronco Leaders.
RHS students enjoyed yummy donuts and orange juice sponsored by the RHS Booster Club. Thank you Booster Club for supporting all RHS students, we appreciate you!!
