The Annual Dollars for Scholars Jail 'n Bail will be taking place on February 1st at RHS. Jail n Bail is a major fundraiser for Dollars for Scholars in which ROCORI junior and senior students contact family and friends through calling, text and email to raise their bail. The students raise their bail (pledges) between January 23 – February 1. On February 1 they will finalize their pledges and submit them while at the same time enjoying local business donations of food, snacks and door prizes throughout the event. The proceeds from Jail n Bail will go toward scholarships for the 2019 seniors who plan to pursue a post- secondary education. All seniors and juniors are invited to participate in this fundraiser. Members of the DFS committee will be speaking to juniors and seniors during homeroom on January 23 about Jail 'n Bail. There will also be drawings for additional scholarships for those collecting over $350 in pledges. Juniors and seniors participating in this event and other DFS events throughout the year will be included in an additional drawing for a $500 scholarship. Watch future newsletters for additional information.
During the second week of December, the ROCORI National Honor Society (NHS) collected toys for the local community for distribution through the Rockville Lions Club and ROCORI Area Food Shelf. NHS held a competition between 1st hour classes and collected at ROCORI home events. The winning classrooms were Mr. Hutar and Mrs. Omann, and their students won a pancake breakfast. With the help of students and community, we collected nearly 250 toys and $100 dollars. Thank you to all who donated!
