Raider "Reader" Leaders
Aryan placed third after competing in the Badger State Spelling Bee at the Mitby Theater March 16, 2019.
While I am proud of how intelligent, motivated, and hard-working he is, I am more proud of his character and how quickly he stood to acknowledge the winning competitor after verifying she spelled the final word correctly. (This starts at about 5:35 in the video below.)

In the last newsletter, we shared that Ms. Bauer's ELA class completed a writing unit in which they researched and wrote about a variety of teen activists who worked to make the world a better place. In conjunction with the unit, they teamed-up with other schools and organizations to help! During the month of March, they collected and distributed over 200 pairs of shoes to needy individuals in Belize. Many thanks for your help!
Remember to bring your drivers license-- the Raptor check-in system, while piloted in March, officially begins today!

You Shop. Amazon Gives.
Amazon Smile is a program where Amazon donates 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to H.H.O.P.S. It’s a super easy way to raise money for H.H.O.P.S. and you can share this information with your families and friends (even if they are out of state).
Step 1: Log into www.smile.amazon.com
Step 2: Use your current Amazon account email address and your password (YES, if you have
amazon prime, it will accept it when you log in!)
Step 3: If you don’t have a current Amazon Account create one (Name, Email Address, and
create a password).
Step 4: It will say “Choose a spotlight or charity or search all charitable organizations” you will
want to “search all charitable organizations”, at this point type in Richfield Scholarship and hit
enter. The first response should be Richfield Scholarship Association Inc. Select that.
Step 5: Start Shopping! It really is THAT easy!
You must log into www.smile.amazon.com every time you shop (there is not an app. for Amazon
Smile, so you must go into your browser and type the address). It will recognize your amazon
prime account so you will still get free shipping with Amazon Smile.
There is absolutely no extra cost to you, or the H.H.O.P.S. program for using Amazon Smile.
