RECHS Guitar Club
From the Guitar Club Leaders:Below are photos from Fridays guitar club meet. On Wednesday the club played a YouTube video teaching a simple song using the chords Em and G. We periodically stopped to help out students. Each student seemed to have a good grasp on the song and are making obvious progress! They are all improving on their finger flexibility, speed, and strumming patterns. On Friday, we decided to let them have a “free for all” day. Students were allowed to play what they wanted and received help on Wednesday’s song if needed.

Yearbook Sponsored Holiday Spirit Week, December 6-10!
The Yearbook staff has decided to sponsor a . . . SPIRIT WEEK!!! The yearbook is all about you guys and how we live academically and non-academically. To represent some holidays that won't be in the yearbook due to timing and deadlines, we decided to make this spirit week holiday themed.
Monday is Valentines day, wear red and pink and go all out in love.
Tuesday is St. Patrick's Day, wear green or you'll be in for a surprise.
Wednesday is National Pencil Day, April Fools' haha. Wednesday is actually April Fools' day. Dress Wacky and pull some school appropriate pranks.
Thursday is Halloween, dress in your spookiest costume and be ready for a big scare.
Friday is Frosty Friday, we know everyone doesn't celebrate the same holidays so this is where you represent whatever wintery holiday you celebrate.
We can't wait to see you and your amazing outfits. Be ready to smile!
We appreciate your Participation,
RECHS Yearbook Staff 2021
