    • November 3rd through 17, is our annual food drive For RHS. This year we will be competing during 6th hour for those who can bring the most weight in non-perishable food items. Non-perishable foods include canned food, pasta, rice, cereals and coffee. Each day during 6th hour the food will be picked up and weighed in pounds. Don't worry, we will divide the pounds by the number of students in that class, so nobody gets an advantage. Our goal is to donate 500 pounds of food to the Rainier Food Bank and the class who gets the most pounds per student at the end of the drive will win homemade brownies and ice cream! This food goes locally here in Rainier, so if you can, please bring some. As an added bonus, we at the high school have challenged the middle school. So bring what you can, if you can! There will be a fun activity involving our principal and vice principal for the winning school. See Kayla Hudson, Becca Reichel or Ross if you have questions or concerns.
