Potential Respect Retreat Student Leaders--I have some good and not so good news. Good news is we had a huge turn out for students wanting to be a student leaders at our Respect Retreat next year. 115 students to be exact. Not so good news is Mrs. Brokus only needs 70 student leaders, so she will need to determine who will have the opportunity to help out. You know her, the first thing she is going to consider is who is wearing their ID every day. If you are serious about being a leader to our 9th graders next year, be sure you are being a positive leader this year. Wear your ID and be good. Go Rams!!
