The Girls basketball teams are hosting a Red Out game to support the American Heart Association tonight against Dundee. There will be a donation dessert table and 3 point contest for prizes. All donations will go to the American Heart Association. Come cheer on the girls and support a great cause!

Next week is Winter Homecoming.  We have some activities planned that we would like to share with you.

Dress up days are as follows:  Tuesday is Gender Bender day.  Dress up as the opposite sex.  On Wednesday, you have the choice of two ways you can dress up.  Make it Rain (dress for the big rainstorm) or Mismatch day (nothing you wear matches).  Thursday is Movie Day (dress as your favorite movie character).  Friday is Orange and Black day.  If you purchased a Team Rychener shirt, you should wear it on Friday.

We also will be playing volleyball at high school lunch and we will have a pop chug and chubby bunny contest on Friday at HS lunch.  Friday afternoon will be the pep assembly.  The basketball game, announcing of homecoming king and queen and HS homecoming dance will all be on Friday night. 

In addition, if you would like to help support the Flint water crisis, please bring in packaged drinking water (in 4,6,8,12 or 24 packs).  We would like to have enough water to pack a bus and take it up to Flint.  Bring you water to the cafeteria in the mornings and we will take it from there!  The challenge is on!

The Spanish club will be selling Valentine's Day Treats for your "sweetie" today during both Middle School and High School Lunches.
