GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS

FRESHMEN TAILGATE THIS WEEKEND:
Our first home football game is fast approaching, this Friday, August 18. Every year we kick off this first home game with a freshmen and Mustang Mentor tailgate! Join us from 5:30PM - 7:00 PM for free food, fun, and games before heading over to the football game! The tailgate is located in the practice field, across from the football field. Kick off is at 7:00 PM. The tailgate is free for freshmen though it does cost $5 to get into the game. Should the weather postpone the first home game, we will reschedule the tailgate to a new date.

Reminder: RBBCSC is again offering the opportunity to purchase an annual Chromebook protection plan for your student’s required rental device. The protection plan is optional. Parents who wish to purchase the plan can complete this form and send it along with cash or check to the school. All families should fill out a form to accept or waive coverage. Only one form is necessary per family. The protection plan will only be available to purchase until September 1.

Germans are coming! We will have a group of 20+ German students at EHS from September 2-15 and we need host families! You would need to provide a bedroom, transportation to and from school and food for a student for the two weeks that they are here. If you are interested, please see Frau Norris in room E151.

School pictures will be August 22. Seniors who have not been photographed for the yearbook may also have pictures taken on this day. Retakes for all students will be at a later scheduled date.
