Our beloved principal will select a few of your questions to answer, and we will publish his responses in every new edition of the Stinger.

Here is the very first installment, straight from the desk of our famous Dr. G!

Q: Why don’t we have more dances? We should have more, such as Spring Fling and a Winter Dance. 

A. We can have as many dances as a student group wants to plan.  Dances are expensive and it takes a lot of planning and had upfront costs that you may not totally recapture through ticket sales. RHS Administrators don’t pay and plan the dances, student groups do this with their sponsors and their fundraising money. For example, Homecoming is planned by StuCo and Prom is planned by senior class. Who wants another dance? Tell them to join a club and let’s start planning!

 Q. Can we invest in better smelling soap for the bathrooms? Ours smells like wet cardboard.  

A. I always thought it smelled like grapefruits, but I agree we need to look into better smelling soap. Our custodial staff are not technically RHS staff, we contract with them to clean our building. I will ask them if they can find a better smelling soap for next year. I know the closet is full of the current soap we need to use it up before we buy new soap.

 Q. Normally seniors get out a few days earlier but I heard that wasn’t happening anymore. What is the deal with that? 

A. You have better information than I do, because I have not planned seniors’ last week yet.  If we can make it happen we will, but there is no guarantee.

 Q. Best way of getting a prom date? 

A. A good promposal goes a long way, but the best way is to stay away from the crazy folks and be a fun person.  Not obnoxious, just fun.

 Q. Pizza rolls or bagel bites? 

A. Pizza rolls, hands down pizza rolls.  Bagel bites are too chewy.
