What an amazing start!

What an amazing start we have had to the 2021-2022 school year! After a year full of hybrid, distance learning, and restrictions, it sure feels great to be back together again! The success and support thus far this fall has been incredible. From Cushman Trophies & Cups, EDC and State Champions, Amazing Performances, Hysterical Productions, Stections, Royalty, Volunteering, Dig Pink, Outdoor Pep Rallies & Dances, and everything in between, the staff and students at Red River High have truly bought into this year's motto which is “Ride Every Day” We are so proud of the environment that these kids have created! Sorry world, this year belongs to us!

Sincerely,

Rider Nation

DECA

This past weekend the Red River DECA club embarked on our mission to FLC! FLC is our

fall leadership conference in Fargo, ND. Twenty-four chapters from all over the state come

together to compete, and give first year members an idea of what DECA is all about and the

opportunity to compete! Red River was very successful this weekend with many of our

first-years being finalists and making it to the stage! All of our returning seniors were

finalists in their events! We had so much fun at this conference hearing from speaker Kyle

Willkom, a national officer of DECA, and the collegiate president of DECA! We cannot wait

to see all of our members again at the February St. Cloud Conference. Keep an ear on the

announcements for our next DECA Day!

HOSA

Another successful month for Red River HOSA! Our cabinet has been actively trying to grow awareness of our group and recruit new members. We have established an amazing group of individuals who put forth great interest and enthusiasm. From freshman to seniors, everyone contributed to making this month one to remember.


During the month of October, we decided to focus our energy on mental health awareness. Knowing the amount of stress which the nurses are in due to covid and even on a regular basis, we wanted to show them our appreciation. We made six poster boards for each unit at Altru hospital. At our meeting we had the members write notes on the posters. Our amazing advisor, Mrs.Rowekamp, provided the supplies and helped us put together a bouquet of flowers in vases. These flowers went along with the “Thank You” posters and were delivered to each floor at the hospital. There was great feedback from the nursing staff, our gratitude definitely put a smile on some faces.


Just this Monday, October 25th, we had the Fall Leadership Conference. It was hosted in Devils Lake ( Lake Region State College) by the state HOSA cabinet. It was a day full of interesting sessions, educating members on health care. We were taught basic skills such as CPR, blood pressure, responding to pediatric trauma and so on. On top of that each group of Cabinet members attended a meeting, which taught us valuable skills on communication, effectiveness and planning.


Overall it was a great month. We have planned future events, and we are full of great ideas to come for the month of November. Stay tuned! #RideEveryDay

Substance Use Prevention Tips


Feelings of insecurity, doubt and pressure may creep in during puberty. Offset those feelings with a lot of positive comments about your child’s individuality and strengths. Focus on

their effort, creativity, and kindness rather than specific outcomes such as good grades or winning a game.
