...Other teacher days will be Oct. 13, Oct. 24, Jan. 16, Feb. 13, and June 5.
...Thanksgiving will be Nov. 26-28 and the winter holidays, Dec. 22 through Jan. 2.
...Spring break will be observed April 13-17 following Easter on April 12.
...Other holidays are Labor Day (Sept. 1), Election Day (Nov. 4), MLK (Jan. 19), and Presidents' Day (Feb. 16).
...The last day for students will be Thursday, June 4.
<The RHH Baseball Boosters will hold their annual fall BBQ fundraiser on Friday, Oct. 19, at the American Legion across from the District Three Stadium. From 4:30-7:30, prior the RHH vs. Fort Mill varsity football game, one can enjoy BBQ plates for $6 (dine in or take out, rain or shine).

<The sister of RHH teacher Adrienne Holland was named last night as the winner of "I Wanna Be a Soap Star." Ashlee will begin her 13-week stint on "The Days of Our Lives" on Oct. 19.
