RHS Groups Rais­ing Funds For School Year

Riverbank News - - NEWS - BY RIC McGIN­NIS News Cor­re­spon­dent

Ath­letes and other sports en­thu­si­asts re­turn­ing to school this fall at River­bank High School are work­ing now to raise funds for their ac­tiv­i­ties.

This past Satur­day, coaches and par­tic­i­pants in the RHS Cheer Squad worked into the heat of the day to wash cars and trucks to raise money for equip­ment and the com­ing sea­son.

It was a warm and clear morn­ing where they scruba-dub-dubbed in the bus cir­cle on the high school cam­pus.

Ad­mit­tedly, they did take a pizza break mid­morn­ing, but for the most part, they were kept busy by passersby tak­ing ad­van­tage of the op­por­tu­nity for a car wash, up un­til about noon.

Coach Stephanie Mire­les said the JV squad in­cludes nine cheer­lead­ers, while the var­sity fea­tures a group of 13, and they’ve been prac­tic­ing, off and on dodg­ing va­ca­tions, since June.

Com­ing up July 20 and 21, in the front park­ing lot of the high school, the RHS boys soccer team will be hold­ing a rum­mage sale. They’ll be earn­ing money to help off­set the cost of new gear and equip­ment.

And while the area is in the grips of a sum­mer heat wave, fall sports prac­tices will be start­ing fairly soon, along with the new school year. Teach­ers re­turn to their class­rooms be­gin­ning on Fri­day, Aug. 3 to pre­pare for the year; stu­dents head back to class on Wed­nes­day, Aug. 8.
