Holidays”, so come to school cozy in your winter pajamas. Tuesday is Holiday Headgear, so grab your Santa hat or reindeer antlers. Wednesday is “Deck the Halls”, so come decked out in your ugly sweaters! Thursday is Flannel Day, and Friday is “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”, so wear Red! Let’s get spirited and get ready for a two week break!
*Hey Sea Hawks! Come out to Frostys Wednesday in your ugly sweaters for some holiday themed games, a picture with Santa, or to win fun prizes! There will be chances to donate to The Avery Fund to help Kalea and Noah. These two siblings were both diagnosed with brain tumors known as
Medulloblastoma, within two weeks of each other, earlier this year. Duncan Avery, their dad, is a
fellow staff member of RUHS who has been coaching surf and volleyball for several years. Our
Redondo community loves the Averys and we hope to help by raising money at this event with all the proceeds going to their cause. If you wish to donate to the Averys, bring money to help fill up the ornament and reach our target fundraising goal of $500! ALL proceeds will go to their cause.
