Coach Schuerman ~ "The RB Math Team had an excellent chance to come home with a state championship but never got that opportunity. Everything was cancelled. There definitely have been bigger tragedies in life recently which makes this pale in comparison, nonetheless, the abrupt end to the season still stings for the team and their coaches. On the bright side, the dates for next year have been set: Regional Contest - February 27, 2021; State Finals - May 1, 2021. I can't wait to start practices. I'd have one tomorrow if they'd let me. So here is a fair warning to next year's team: I'm probably going to be a man on fire. At the risk of spoiling the ending, we will win the state championship. No team is more talented, no team will work harder, and no team will have a better time. Get your rest this summer. It's going to be a fun ride."
RB staff joins the fun during Monday's learning with "Bring Your Pet to "Class". Looking forward to seeing tomorrow's Tie Dye Day: Students/Staff ~Send in pictures wearing tie dye clothing in your "at home" learning space to email@example.com by 1pm.
As we enter a season of appreciating our students' accomplishments and the successes of the 2020 school year, please enjoy, remember and celebrate our championship football team. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=si33th_CtqY&t=553s
