Choosing A College Major

I would like to share this great article from the NY Times about choosing a major in college.



Thanksgiving Donations

Erntedankfest

We know that for some in our Raptor Family, Thanksgiving is not a time of abundance and a dinner table heavily laden with a feast. We also know that there are many in our community who would willingly share their bounty. Germans celebrate their own type of Thanksgiving as farmers bring parts of their harvest and place them in a church to be distributed to those who might need it within the community. This “Erntedankfest” spurred the German Club to want to initiate a similar initiative within our community.

From Monday, we will place a large tub in the lobby for non-perishable food donations. Items include large canned pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, evaporated milk, large cans of yams, canned green beans, canned mushroom soup, turkey seasoning, boxes or bags of stuffing, cans of cranberry sauce, Velveeta or similar product, elbow pasta, and turkey seasoning. We’ll accept fresh produce such as onions and celery as well as butter or margarine. You can also leave gift cards for Krogers, Walmart or Food Lion so that our Raptor family members can buy fresh items such as turkey, eggs, margarine or butter in this week.

We will place a shoe box at the front desk for gift card donations (with dollar amount on them) as well as for RTHS students and families to request a Thanksgiving dinner box anonymously.

We will distribute the Thanksgiving dinner with fixings on Monday and Tuesday of Thanksgiving week, most likely in backpacks.

Sponsored by The German Club as our form of “Erntedankfest.”
