Red Hill CUSD #10 School Calendar Changes
Thanksgiving Holiday Break Information
The RHHS Career Explorations students went to Vincennes University (VU) for a tour. They got to see the VU library, admissions, what the VU dorm rooms look like, classrooms, eat lunch in the dining hall, and we got to meet with the Program Chair of Homeland Security and Public Safety, Lou Caprino. Mr Caprino has a vast background with the LAPD, the FBI, and Homeland Security. He is now a professor and Program Chair for Homeland Security at VU and prepares students to enter the workforce. To say the students learned a lot (and enjoyed speaking with him) is an understatement! Thanks to Mr Caprino for the riveting stories, knowledge, and the time he took to speak with us! We even received a glowing compliment from him about our students: "Throughout my tenure as a professor at Vincennes University, I've had the privilege of interacting with thousands of high school students. However, I must say that the students from Red Hill were exceptionally attentive, courteous, and enthusiastic."

In Ms. Tussey's Business class (grades 9-12), students have been learning all about how to send an email, what to write, and email etiquette. After learning about email etiquette, they worked in groups to review the email tips we’ve learned, looked at emails to identify what was wrong with them, and each group took turns on writing a GOOD email and a BAD email. The “bad” or poorly written emails are always fun to read out loud! 😆 See Ms Tussey's favorite "bad" email in the pictures! 😆 Follow Ms Tussey's classroom: https://www.facebook.com/MsTussey

Red Hill CUSD #10 Notice of Public Hearing
Introducing Katlyn Ortiz, a talented high school student with a passion for band and dance. Katlyn has been actively involved in band and dance throughout her high school years, showcasing her artistic talents and dedication to the performing arts. When reflecting on high school, Katlyn mentions that what she will miss the most are her friends, emphasizing the importance of the connections she has formed during her high school journey. These friendships have enriched her experience and provided a sense of support and camaraderie. One of Katlyn's favorite high school memories is going to Holiday World, an experience that undoubtedly brought joy and excitement to her high school years. Reflecting on her four years of high school, Katlyn believes that she has changed and learned valuable lessons. She expresses a desire to have tried harder to become a better person, indicating personal growth and a commitment to self-improvement. Katlyn's proudest accomplishment during her high school years is successfully completing high school, an important milestone that marks the culmination of her academic journey thus far. Throughout high school, Katlyn's biggest influences have been her mother and her best friend. Their presence, guidance, and support have played a significant role in shaping Katlyn's high school experience. Among her favorite teachers, Katlyn holds Mrs. Laswell in high regard. She describes Mrs. Laswell as sweet, understanding, and incredibly helpful. This teacher's kindness and support have left a lasting impact on Katlyn's high school experience. When offering advice to underclassmen, Katlyn's suggestion is simple yet essential: "Stay in school." After high school, Katlyn plans to attend Olney Central College and later transfer to Monmouth University to pursue her dream of becoming a dentist. Her ambitious career goal highlights her commitment to helping others and making a positive impact in the field of oral healthcare. Katlyn has achieved success in securing two scholarships, which demonstrate her academic excellence and dedication to her future endeavors. Katlyn shares a thought-provoking quote: "If no one comes back from the past to tell you it's wrong, is it really that bad?" This quote encourages a perspective that challenges the weight of judgment and encourages individuals to consider their own experiences and opinions. We wish Katlyn Ortiz all the best as she continues her academic journey, pursuing her dreams of becoming a dentist. May her dedication, talent, and passion lead her to great success!
