The students at RSS are partaking in a We Scare Hunger Food Drive on Monday October 31st. We are asking that the community help us collect non-perishable food items so that we can surpass our 1400 items we collected last year. If students bring in 3 non perishable food items Halloween morning, they will receive a hot chocolate with marshmallows from the grade 9/10 LFI class. The students and staff will be going door to door around Rossland in costumes to collect the canned goods throughout the school day. We ask that you would leave a couple of food items on your doorstep for the students to collect and/or bring them into the foyer at the school. Thank you for your participation.
(PLEASE NO CANDY DONATIONS)

On April 22nd, Grade 7-9 Student Leaders presented a cheque for $500 to the Canadian Cancer Society’s Daffodil Dash Campaign to support paediatric cancer research. Our student leaders climbed to the top of Red Mountain to raise the funds, inspired by the courage and determination of our friend Natasha Gould who is climbing to conquer her battle with a rare form of brain cancer.
