Richland County School District is confronting bullying head-on. SRO Brad Ameter, along with building administration and counselors, have been working to develop a way for students to advocate for themselves without the pressure of the "what if". Oftentimes, students fear to come forward about an incident because they do not want to draw attention to themselves. By scanning the QR code on the flyer, (that will be distributed in each building in multiple locations) students can anonymously report an act of bullying. Once this has been reported, an email will automatically be sent to all building administration, as well as SRO Ameter and building counselors.
If you have been in the RCHS Student Commons area you may have noticed a new quilt hanging from the balcony. The quilt was made by last year's 3rd quarter Fashion Design class to be raffled off at the last home football game of the 2023-24 season on October 16th against Casey-Westfield. Buy a ticket from Mrs. West directly or at select home football & volleyball games. Tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5.
This quarter's Fashion Design class will be making another quilt that will be raffled off at the last home Basketball game. If you have any shirts you would like to be included in the quilt we are taking donations now. They can be any size, or color and can even be in less-than-perfect condition. As long as they are part of OTN they can be included.
