Minds in the Middle 1/12/2016

Congratulations to over one-third of our RCMS students for writing an essay on conservation.  The entries turned in this year were fabulous!  Because of this, choosing the winners were next to impossible.  After much thought and deliberation from several judges, the winners are as follows:

3rd place winner Bryanna Owens, 2nd place Kyle Coffey, and 1st place Bailee Allen.  These students and their teachers will be recognized in a ceremony this coming spring.  Congratulations to everyone!
